    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...

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.

    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.”

    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...

In contrast, Kathleen Matthews, a former TV news anchor, exuded a composed professionalism. A nice, cool balance to Chris's fire, it seemed.

    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...

"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...

Only the work of a few good men with the courage to face up to this "cabal" - and a few crusader-journalists to help them - can make the demons scatter and scare the dark ones into the light.

    Thousands of anti-abortion advocates lined up outside the Capitol Monday and heard a remorseful former U.S. Sen. Zell Miller apologize for his tardiness in supporting their cause. "I'm more than one year late here. I'm several years late being here," said Miller, a former governor. "All those years you were out here, and I was in there," he said, pointing at the Gold Dome with a shake of his head. The demonstrators converge on the state Capitol each year on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the controversial Supreme Court decision that legalized abortions 33 years ago. Police said between...

Yesterday the Atlanta Journal-Constitution published an important column by Senator Miller on the subject that is the current focus of my interest: "Rule can head off dirty tricks at CIA."

Within the journalistic trade, only Stephen Hayes...

    Zell Miller announced Wednesday that he plans to send a check for $112,956 plus interest to the state of Georgia to resolve a dust-up over how much money he got from the state treasury when he was governor. At issue was the $40,000-a-year allowance that the state gives its governors to offset entertainment and hospitality costs at the executive mansion. A recent report by Atlanta's WSB-TV accused the notoriously frugal Miller of pocketing more than $60,000 that he did not spend on entertaining legislators, business leaders and assorted dignitaries when he was Georgia's governor from 1991 to 1999.

Now he's coming back to help Republicans raise money to whip Democratic legislators. The Alabama Republican Majority Committee is holding a $250-per-person fundraising dinner June 24 in Birmingham with Miller as the featured speaker. Committee spokesman Leland Whaley said the group hopes to clear a six-figure sum to contribute toward its goal of having $6 million to help Republican legislative candidates in the 2006 elections. When asked about Miller's visit Friday, Siegelman said he didn't get concerned when Miller served...

    According to senate minority leader Harry Reid and his friends, democrats must block the constitutional appointment process in order to protect you from right-wing radical judges. They say they use the filibuster only in the most extreme situations, to block confirmation of extremely dangerous radicals to the bench for sake of all mankind. Heroes they are really, at least in their own minds… I can almost see their point too. Who would want some extreme right-wing wacko deciding justice in America? I mean, what if judges actually just stuck to the written law and constitution and applied them to cases...
  • Zell Miller zeroes in on Dem problems

    Zell Miller says in the preface of "A Deficit of Decency" that his new book "is about the soul: the soul of our nation, the soul of western civilization, your soul, and my own."

"I have come to believe the reason is we have failed to acknowledge and discipline ourselves with the spiritual truths that made us great for these 200 years - faith, family, country, values." After four years in the Senate, monitoring the nation's...

    There is good news from Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, GA. I just spoke with public relations at the hospital, and they said that Zell Miller has been discharged. He gave us a scare last night when he was rushed to the hospital. They could give no more details, but I expect we will have them soon.

    The Hill ^ | 4/26/05 | Albert Eisele and Jeff Dufour
    Former Sen. Zell Miller (D-Ga.) had a beef with “Hardball” host Chris Matthews before he ever appeared on the show immediately after his fiery speech at the Republican National Convention last year. The famously disloyal Democrat reveals in his new book, A Deficit of Decency, that before telling Matthews he wished he could challenge him to a duel, he had long “detested” Matthews’s “know-it-all attitude and his bullying way of interviewing.” And earlier that evening, Matthews’s fellow MSNBC pundit Ron Reagan called Miller “kind of weird,” while Matthews himself had referred to Miller as an “old-time seggy,” meaning segregationist —...
