    I posted this late Sunday night and I thought it might get more traffic today. Here is the original post. W 2004!!! With the new "dream team" of Carville and Begala in place, I thought it worthy of posting Carville's utter throwing away of Zell and his blaming Republicans for making Zell turn on his Dem buddies. Key points: Zell Miller was Carville's former employer and Miller officiated Carville and Matalins wedding!!! There is no bottom for Carville and this marks the beginning of the next phase in the battle for the White House. I wonder if Carl Rove forced...

    Republican National Convention | Sept. 19, 2004 | Zell Miller
    Below is the text of Sen. Zell Miller's keynote speech as prepared for delivery at the Republican National Convention: Since I last stood in this spot, a whole new generation of the Miller Family has been born: Four great grandchildren. Along with all the other members of our close-knit family, they are my and Shirley's most precious possessions. And I know that's how you feel about your family also. Like you, I think of their future, the promises and the perils they will face. Like you, I believe that the next four years will determine what kind of world they...

    Buford, Ga. – There was no mistaking the man who walked through the glass doors of the hotel complex on the shores of Lake Lanier. The trademark shock of white hair remains neatly groomed. The hawk-like nose still juts out over a tight jaw. The eyes are clear and bright. But the stride is gone. Zell Miller walks gingerly now, always with a cane. The former governor and U.S. senator describes himself as an 80-year-old man with 100-year-old legs. “I very, very seldom go anywhere,” Miller said in an interview. Miller’s appearance on Friday was a rare return to a...

    Zell Miller: Buy "Gorilla Glue" for Obama Former Democrat and former Georgia Gov./Sen. Zell Miller hit the racial tripwire in blasting Barack Obama in a speech to a gathering of lawmakers on Thursday. Speaking in Atlanta, Miller, a 76-year-old white Southerner with a penchant for the folksy put-down, was railing against the White House in general — and Obama's recent travels to Europe, the Middle East and Mexico in particular. The AP: Our globe-trotting president needs to stop and take a break and quit gallivanting around," Miller said, adding that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel needs to put...

    "Decrying a federal government he says is out of control, former Georgia Gov. and U.S. Sen. Zell Miller said Thursday that America is “spending like we’re Paris Hilton.” But the comparison to the blonde socialite might not be the worst offense in Miller’s litany of all that’s wrong with the country. Speaking to more than 1,000 conservative - overwhelmingly Republican - lawmakers from around the country, Miller said, “Today, we’re spending like we’re Paris Hilton, regulating like we’re Ralph Nader, nationalizing like we’re Hugo Chavez, printing money like we’re the Weimar Republic and taxing like we’re, well, the Democratic Congress.”

    The Athens Banner-Herald / The Associated Press ^ | November 26, 2008 | Shannon McCaffrey
    GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Georgia's maverick Democrat Zell Miller threw his support behind Sen. Saxby Chambliss saying he "could well be the last man standing between a far, far left liberal agenda sailing through the Senate." A former Georgia senator and governor, Miller remains a Democrat but has lined up behind prominent Georgia Republicans in recent years. Chambliss is locked in a Dec. 2 U.S. Senate runoff with Democrat Jim Martin. The race could help decide whether Democrats win enough seats to block Republican filibusters. Martin on Wednesday picked up a law enforcement endorsement and scolded Chambliss for attacking his crime...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    The fellow synonymous with "Hardball" showed his soft side today. Interviewed by his wife to help mark the show's 10th anniversary and promote his new book, "Life's a Campaign,"Chris Matthews was frequently emotional as he talked about everything from his heroes [including JFK, Churchill and Hemingway], his drinking days and his admiration for John McCain's patriotism. In contrast, Kathleen Matthews, a former TV news anchor, exuded a composed professionalism. A nice, cool balance to Chris's fire, it seemed. Meanwhile, John Kerry reminded us of what, shall we say, we didn't necessarily love about the guy. At show's end, a montage...

    Tribunals' critics will pay in next election By ZELL MILLER -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The howls of protest over the administration's efforts to treat terrorists like the war criminals they are is mind-boggling. The critics are crying foul at the mere mention of bringing suspected terrorists to justice in military tribunals. This obsession with protecting the rights of terrorists is naive and wrongheaded. And if you don't want to take my word for it, just wait -- voters will say it loud and clear in next year's elections. The critics forget a key fact: We are at war. Thousands of innocent citizens were ...

    Controversial Former US Senator Names Abortion as Culprit in US Population Shortages “How could this great land of plenty produce too few people in the last 30 years?” Miller asks By Peter J. Smith MACON, Georgia, March 12, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Former US Senator Zell Miller blamed abortion as the reason why the United States faces shortages of military manpower, the impending collapse of its social security system, and depends on illegal immigration. The pro-life former Democrat appeared as the featured speaker for a fundraising banquet last Tuesday for the Sav-A-Life Care Center, which counsels women contemplating abortion. The...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Sen. Zell Miller, a Georgia Democrat who supported President Bush in 2004, will head a new group of Democrats supporting Pennsylvania GOP Sen. Rick Santorum's reelection bid. "I am not involved in any other race in the country," Miller said during a radio interview Monday, according to a news release from Santorum's campaign. "I am only doing this for Rick Santorum. I believe in Rick Santorum's leadership that much."

    ATLANTA - Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mark Taylor kept up a relentless assault on Gov. Sonny Perdue's ethics on Monday as a new statewide poll showed the lieutenant governor continuing to trail the Republican incumbent with just a week to go until election day. Taylor alleged that Perdue broke the law when he failed to disclose his apparent conflict of interest in 2004 as the state weighed whether to purchase a wildlife preserve in Houston County near his longtime home. The Oaky Woods preserve borders more than 100 acres of land now owned by Perdue. Perdue did not disclose that property...

    LANCASTER - "Moral scurvy" is weakening America, retired U.S. senator Zell Miller said Friday at a fundraising dinner for Desert Christian Schools. "As a country we're dying and we don't even know it," he said. "We're drowning and we don't feel it." The majority of Miller's talk focussed on Christian faith and the role of Christians and Christian education in the life and welfare of America. "There's a war being fought," he said. "Not just the war in the Middle East - a war for our children's souls." "It has been said, if you want to change the world you...

I’ve been too busy to write Three absolutely extraordinary things happened in the last week – well, stretch that – a week and a half. One I’ll save for another column, because it deserves its own space and details need to be filled in. The others are election night on 2 May, and 4 - 8 May, which was spent in Bermuda. Start, of course, with politics. Going into the Republican primary against eight-term incumbent, Charles Taylor, I knew my own campaign was limited....
