A brit take on Zell

Thanks to the crankpot at WTF is it now, is a British take on the Zell Miller speach:
"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 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 politics.


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 up."

It's surprising he managed to stand up at all, what with his metal spine.

Brilliant, check out the rest.
