I see Sullivan is having a gay old time bashing Zell Miller.
Hey Andy- you know what it is called when someone ascribes false characteristics to an individual based solely on stereotypes? It is called bigotry.
Hack. How did he even manage to write this line:
That macho invocation of the Marines was a classic: the kind of militarist swagger that this convention endorses and uses as a bludgeon against its opponents.
Did he even see the DNC? The left will try to spin this as ‘over the top,’ or venomous. And once again, the left and the Democrats will completely be blindsided by how this was accepted by independents and undecideds (Jay has similar remarks).
Miller’s speech was not ‘venomous,’ or ‘hate-filled.’ It was a harsh attack on Kerry’s VOTING RECORD and PUBLIC STATEMENTS, but that is completely fair game. What you saw was measured rage- anger based on an insider’s view of the Democrats gaming foreign policy for partisan benefit. There is a reason Miller stated the folowing:
Where is the bi-partisanship in this country when we need it most?
Now, while young Americans are dying in the sands of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan, our nation is being torn apart and made weaker because of the Democrat’s manic obsession to bring down our Commander-in- Chief.
What has happened to the party I’ve spent my life working in?
Does anyone doubt this? All the Democrats have done in the past three years is snipe, whine, coplain, obstruct, fabricate lies (16 words, the President doesn’t attend funerals, they doctored the intelligence, etc.), and they are on record as trying to game the Senate Select Intelligence committee forpartisan gain. Zell Miller was notmaking things up. The reasons the Democrats are mad at Miler is because he has the goods on them.
And as far as Andy stooping so low as to attempt to inject racism and racist motives with his ‘dixiecrat’ slur- well, I used to think better of you, Andy.
