Zell Miller

"Together, Kennedy/Kerry have opposed the very weapons system that won the Cold War and that is now winning the War on Terror." - Zell Miller

While the majority of his crotchety tirade was bullshit, this single quote pretty much summed up the validity of everything he said for me.

Y'know, Zell, the Cold War is called the Cold War because there were never any weapons fired. If we assume for a moment you mean a nuclear weapons cache, I don't recall having strapped a Bucket O' Cesium to Osama. Or turning Iraq into a sea of glass. Or leaving the Saudis glowing green. And given we, like other nations, are dismantling our nuclear weapons...

The only other weapon I can think of is Star Wars, which didn't exist then and doesn't exist now. Maybe he's beginning dementia -- I don't know.

If you want to really reach for a metaphor, he could mean money, or even propaganda. Except I don't think Ted Kennedy or John Kerry are against either money or propaganda.

Which leaves us with something more after:

Blah blah blah, I'm old and angry and make no sense!

Now vote for George W. Bush!

Hoo-boy, that's the best argument to vote Bush/Cheney '04 I've heard yet.
