Gawdammit, Florida!

I am a firm believer in the principle that there should never be any sort of religious requirement for holding any position of public trust.

Still, when I heard about candidate for US Senate who admits to having sacrificed a goat and drinking its blood, I shake my head, and say, "Only in Florida".
A lawyer who is standing for the US Senate in Florida has admitted killing a goat and drinking its blood as part of a sacrifice "to the god of the wilderness".

Augustus Sol Invictus, who changed his name to the Latin phrase which means "majestic unconquered sun", has accused critics of running a smear campaign against him.

The 32-year-old is a member of the Libertarian Party in Florida and said he carried out the sacrifice as part of a pagan ritual.

He said: "I did sacrifice a goat. I know that's probably a quibble in the mind of most Americans.

"I sacrificed an animal to the god of the wilderness ... yes, I drank the goat's blood."

Mr Invictus was responding after the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida, Adrian Wyllie, resigned, calling on party leaders to denounce his candidacy.
Florida, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

I'm waiting for them to elect Marilyn Manson governor.
