    I've never heard Zell Miller speak before tonight. His speech to the Republican convention was the only one I sat through in its entirety.

    I can see why the Democrats hate him. The man is articulate, in command of the facts, he has ethics, he is honorable and he has served his country with distinction. None of these are traits particularly prized by the far left. None of these are traits exhibited by the two hacks being touted by the Democrats this election.

    But worst of all, Zell Miller has, in the eyes of Democrats, committed the most unforgivable sin of all - he tells it like it is. He laid bare the leftist agenda to have this nation cower at the feet of the UN. He exposed kerry's shameful voting record. He showed the Democratic party for what it has become - a coalition of self-interest desperately scrabbling to regain the power they justifiably lost. Seeking to regain and wield that power, not in the service of the nation, but instead simply to perpetuate their bankrupt and degenerate policies of socialism and secularism. And for that, you can bet that he will be villified, demonized, cursed and ostracized by the Democrats who seek to elect a lie this November.

    Thanks Zell. It was refreshing to hear someone get up and tell the unvarnished truth for a change.

    Instead of pillorying him, the Democratic party needs to cherish those like Zell Miller who place conscience and service to the nation above petty political bickering. Instead of responding with cheap harangues, the Democratic party needs to hear the message Zell Miller is trying send them - that they will never again achieve greatness as long as the Democratic party places its own self-interest above the best interest of the nation.

    The Democratic party has been in one long, continuous decline since the death of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. They will never recover as long as they continue to nominate spineless straw men like john francis kerry.

    I especially liked how Zell aligned and attacked Kennedy along with Kerry, not John Edwards. He was definitely targeting the left wing powerbrokers of his party.

    All I can say is Zell has balls the size of coconuts ! :dance:
    The man had a passion and integrity to his eyes and a stern God fearing demeanor that I haven't seen in a political figure in a long time ! It was quite refreshing and I for one think he gave the best speech so far at the RNC !
    All fact and no bullshit to him ! I like that ... :thup:

    Damn! I was at work and missed it.

    Right after I joined this board, I made a comment about Zel Miller and the fact that he rocked. Several of you sent many a snide remark my way. Hmmmm.

    My only regret is that he's retiring. Who knows, maybe he'll get
    an offer he can't refuse. But every time I've heard him answer the retirement question he hasn't wavered...it seems his mind is made up.
