Putting the 'Con' in the RNC Convention!

Tonight, in Zell's wacky keynote address at the RNC, he said: "For more than 20 years, on every one of the great issues of freedom and security, John Kerry has been more wrong, more weak and more wobbly than any other national figure. As a war protester, Kerry blamed our military. As a Senator, he voted to weaken our military."

He said much more, and no doubt more on that all later.

But first, a few words from Zell about John Kerry back before "the change" that you may have missed while the Media was busy repeating the Bush/Cheney press releases:

"My job tonight is an easy one: to present to you one of this nation's authentic heroes, one of this party's best-known and greatest leaders --- and a good friend. He was once a lieutenant governor - but he didn't stay in that office 16 years, like someone else I know. It just took two years before the people of Massachusetts moved him into the United States Senate in 1984.
-- U.S. Senator Zell Miller (Introducing John Kerry to the Democratic Party of Georgia Jefferson Jackson Dinner 2001)

"In his 16 years in the Senate, John Kerry has fought against government waste and worked hard to bring some accountability to Washington. Early in his Senate career in 1986, John signed on to the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Deficit Reduction Bill, and he fought for balanced budgets before it was considered politically correct for Democrats to do so. John has worked to strengthen our military, reform public education, boost the economy and protect the environment."
-- U.S. Senator Zell Miller (Remarks to the Democratic Party of Georgia Jefferson Jackson Dinner 2001)

Whacky, huh? Well, perhaps only if you bothered to watch Zig Zag Zell (as they call him back him on George for being on all sides of every issue) tonight at the Republican Con-vention.
