I always love to link to this piece about "Celestial Drops," when I talk about Katherine Harris.
"Katherine Harris, then Florida's secretary of state-and now a member of the U.S. House of Representatives-ordered a study in which, according to an article by Jim Stratton in the Orlando Sentinel, "researchers worked with a rabbi and a cardiologist to test ‘Celestial Drops,' promoted as a canker inhibitor because of its ‘improved fractal design,' ‘infinite levels of order,' and ‘high energy and low entropy.'" The study determined that the product tested was, basically, water that had apparently been blessed according to the principles of Kabbalic mysticism, "chang[ing] its molecular structure and imbu[ing] it with supernatural healing powers."

Now with her campaign in trouble, she's pulling out all the stops. So much for separation between Church and State.

The Carpetbagger Report:

"I suppose the obvious concern would be Harris' shameless pandering to the GOP's theocratic wing, but I have a slightly different question: Why isn't Harris' attendance at this conference a scandal in and of itself? The host of the event, Coral Ridge's Rev. D. James Kennedy, is a fairly important figure in religious right circles. He's also someone who's offered gems such on"

Can you help us out?
