Katherine Harris: Another Intelligent Design?

The Mandarin never gets tired of saying, "You just can't make this stuff up."

Katherine Harris is a Republican from Florida in the U.S. House of Representatives. Her previous job was Florida Secretary of State, where she became (in)famous for her role in the 2000 presidential election.

While in that office, concerned about the potential for citrus canker to harm the state's cash crops, and at State expense, she:

(O)rdered 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."

There is buzz that she will run for the Senate next year. Yum.
