Zell's Shot Heard 'Round the World

Zell Miller expected ill will from fellow Democrats for his outrage over the cynical partisanship of the Democrat party leadership. But the nastiest invective I've seen yet directed his way came from an unnamed editorialist for something called the "London News Review."

This self-professed genius of nuance is willing to admit the existence of hell (if not a deity) just so that he may personallly condemn the Georgia Senator to spend eternity there. Why, you ask?

"There are very many hideous things happening in the world right now, and yet up amongst the evil Janaweed massacres and Simon Cowell is the thumpingly stupid and evil belief which is currently being espoused by the Repubicans: that the only way to fight terrorism is to be firm, strong, resolute, unflinching, unlistening, blind, unthinking, staunch.... like what George Bush Jnr is. Don't change your mind. Don't shift. Don't think."

Mister smuggy smug unleashes the nuclear treatment among grayscale -loving certainty denouncers - he calls Zell "Idiot" - because the old-fashioned democrat finds suicidal maniacs coming here to kill us and our families more hideous than "blind, unthinking, staunch" self-defense from said maniacs.

I wonder where on the scale of grey the term "idiot" falls? Somewhere between Albert Einstein and this guy, I have to say.

On second thought, I think the real reason this relativistic multiculturalist has such antipathy toward Zell is that the Senator simply doesn't agree with him and his 'worldly' and 'enlightened' pals. (I'm afraid I was projecting my faculty for rational thought onto someone not likely equipped therewith.)

One of my family members has credited the Senior Senator from the great state of Georgia with changing her vote from LP to W.

Jacksonian America is frightening to Conservative Britons -- I can imaging what they'd've thought of Zell. Thatís really funny!

I'll credit the Senator with at least as big a part of the Bush bounce as any other, though I think the gestalt of the convention produced it ("gestalt" doesn't really seem a Republican term, does it...)
