Zell Miller On The Warpath Again-- This Time For Saxby Chambliss


Lifelong racist and former chief of staff to Lester Maddox, Zell Miller isn't just a disgrace to the Democratic Party-- the original Joe Lieberman-- and a shameless reactionary, he's also lost his marbles. He's been in and out of mental institutions ever since his breakdown at the Republican National Convention in 2004. Ole Zell lives up in the mountains in KKK country now and rarely comes down among people. But Saxby Chambliss had someone go up there and clean him up and get him into a shirt and tie and drag him down to a Republican rally last week.

These days Republicans roll him out whenever they need a "Democrat" to endorse them. He's a regular on Fox and has cut campaign ads for Ralph Reed, Johnny Isakson and Sonny Perdue. Needless to say, he adamantly refused to support Obama in the recent election. So it should come as no surprise that the mentally ill Miller would be up on stage endorsing Saxby Chambliss. Remember, it was ole Zell who actually sponsored a Constitutional amendment (in 2004) to outlaw gay marriage, the far right's most cherished tactic for divisive politics. (The other Constitutional amendment Miller proposed, actually the repeal of the 17th amendment, was meant to take away the right of the people to vote for senators and return that to the state legislatures.)

Delusional and ranting, Miller claimed he was governor of Georgia in 1944 (a full year before his bar mitzvah and 46 years before we was elected governor) and that he was proposing tax cuts Jim Martin was fighting. The whole audience was laughing at the loon but they were happy to have another right-wing nut voting against Martin. After working himself and the crowd into a frenzy of self-righteousness, someone gave him his pills and took him back to his home in Young Harris way up in Towns County near the South Carolina line. Meanwhile ole Saxby is doing what he can to weasel out of tesifying about his despicable role in the notorious Imperial Sugar case-- and claiming he doesn't know if we're in a recession or not or even what one is. Clearly, Georgia needs better representation in the U.S. Senate.

Please enjoy this short clip of ole Zell campaigning for "the firewall" who the Republicans hope will thwart the will of Americans who just elected Barack Obama in the sincere hope that he would bring a progressive agenda of change to this country after 8 miserable years of the Bush-Cheney agenda that included neither peace nor prosperity but that was completely rubber stamped by Saxby Chambliss:

Zell is just one of those racist Dems that forgot to leave the party after the Civil Rights legislation was signed into law. I guess he would say, "Better late than never" as he is embraced by the rest of the Repug Klan.

If President-elect Obama were in support of Jim Martin instead of neutral/leaning Chambliss, maybe I'd care.
