Great Zell Blog

Just loved this one!

"Yes, I'm a Democrat. But I'm proud to say that I now support the
re-election of George W. Bush."
- Senator Zell Miller (D).

If there is a hell, and most likely Zell Miller believes in such a
thing, then Democratic Senator Zell Miller is going to burn in it.
Spin hotly on a giant griddle. For something close to eternity.

Oh yes, siree. He is going to burn in hell.

And the chances of hell existing have just skyrocketed, because if
God exists then he's no kind of God unless he quickly fashions a hell
for Democrat Senator Zell Miller to burn in.

And even if the universe exists without a God, as many would contend,
it is far from beyond the inarticulate power of this vast mass of
galaxies, nebulae and planets to create - within itself - a dark and
steaming corner where Mr. Zell Miller can dwell, for eternity, in
unspeakable pain.

We can call it hell or we can call it Georgia. Just so long as
Senator Zell Miller suffers in it.

So - yes - Senator Zell Miller is a very bad person. Here's why.

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.

Strong. Be strong. Don't listen to the detail; get down to the doing.
So, according to Democrat Senator Zell Miller, "the world cannot
afford an indecisive America.

Fainthearted self-indulgence will put at risk all we care about in
this world. In this hour of danger our president has had the courage
to stand up. And this Democrat is proud to stand up with him."

This election (and it may well be that no more important election has
ever been fought; as Miller says: "this election will change forever
the course of history") -- this momentous election is being fought on
the issue of war.

The war in Iraq. The War on Terror. And most Americans simply aren't
seeing the way this war is being fought. They aren't seeing the body
bags. They don't care about the masses of Arabs killed in the name of
freedom. They don't know why the War in Iraq is being fought.

They don't know that the invasion was planned well before 9/11. They
think Saddam Hussein blew up the Twin Towers. They aren't seeing (or
being shown) the bigger picture. They remember 9/11, and they don't
want it to happen again.

"And I don't care what my fellow Democrats say about social issues. For me, national security and the war on terror trump everything else."
- Senator Zell Miller

He doesn't care about social issues. There is one issue for Miller,
as there is for much of America: how is terrorism going to be fought.
How is national security going to be safe-guarded?

And how is this decision-dodging war-fraud John Kerry hoping to deal
with it? Here's what Senator Miller says about Kerry:

"I see him talking about the complexities of the situation, talking
about shades of grey, rather than black or white."

Yeah. Because the world is painted in black and white. Because
there's no room for complexity, for thought, for consideration, for
intelligence, for confusion, for difficulty, for uncertainty, for


It's just plain idiotic to criticise John Kerry for suggesting that
Iraq and terrorism is a complex situation that demands flexibility of
thought. What the hell is wrong with seeing "shades of grey"? If you
look at the world and the War on Terror and see nothing but black and
white then you're as good as blind.

"Wobbly" is what Miller calls Kerry, while praising Bush for his
single-mindedness: he's a "straight shooter" with "a spine of tempered
steel" - "he's the same man on Saturday night that he is on Sunday
morning." Sameness. Like that's some kind of political virtue.

"In this hour of danger our President has had the courage to stand

It's surprising he managed to stand up at all, what with his metal
spine. If George Bush Jnr wins this election it will be because the great
American public applauds him for being staunch and unthinking - and if
that's the case, well, we might as well all take off our clothes and
wade out into the ocean and start gulping down the brine.

Bush, says Miller, is a "God-fearing man" - and "God is not
indifferent to America" - (as anyone who reads The American Prophecies
will know).

God is not indifferent to America?

A sentiment dripping with unintentional irony. Miller had better
hope, he'd better pray, that God starts feeling indifferent towards
America, and pretty damned soon.
