Zell Miller

A good commentary on Zell Miller's speech at the R.N.C. can be found on Gut Rumbles site. Rob starts off: bq. Zell Miller I didn't like Zell when he was governor of Georgia. I never voted for him and I agreed with the people who called him "Pell-Mell Zell" and "Zig-Zag Zell." I thought he was a typical, ass-kissing politician who would do anything for a vote. bq. When Paul Coverdale died and that carpetbagger, Roy Barnes, appointed Zell Miller to take Paul's seat in the Senate, I was appalled. I liked Paul Coverdale a lot and I truly believed that Zell would go to Washington and become a Democrat hand-puppet the way Max Cleland did. bq. I was wrong. He then quotes a short excerpt from Zell's speech: bq. What has happened to the party I've spent my life working in? bq. I can remember when Democrats believed that it was the duty of America to fight for freedom over tyranny. bq. It was Democratic President Harry Truman who pushed the Red Army out of Iran, who came to the aid of Greece when Communists threatened to overthrow it, who stared down the Soviet blockade of West Berlin by flying in supplies and saving the city. bq. Time after time in our history, in the face of great danger, Democrats and Republicans worked together to ensure that freedom would not falter. But not today. bq. Motivated more by partisan politics than by national security, today's Democratic leaders see America as an occupier, not a liberator. Rob's closing comment nails it on the head: bq. Zell sees the seamy underbelly of the Democrat party. Democrats would rather rule a nation of slaves than be the minority party in the land of the free. I believe that such an attitude should frighten people today. bq. That's what the next election is all about. Some of the comments people have left are well worth checking out too. Good stuff...
