RNC - Day 3 Part 7 - Zell Miller edition
Written by: Beck

Here comes the RNC official keynote speech... and it's being given by a Democrat.

Oh how the mainstream Democrats hate this man.

The crowd's giving him a very strong reception. He's having a hard time getting started.

He's starting off talking about his family. Evidently he has 4 great-grand children. He also has one mother of an accent. "I believe that the next 4 years will determine the kind of world they will grow up in."

He asks which candidate will provide a safe world for his family to grow up in. "My family is more important than my party. There is but one man to whom I am willing to entrust their future, and that man is George W. Bush."

You know, all this time, I figured there was a slim but non-negligible chance that Miller was going to revert to his Democratic roots and sabotage this whole thing. Looks like he's going to stick to the script.

Update: He's talking about Wendell Wilkie, who basically gave up the fight against FDR in 1940 by asserting that he would not make national security a partisan issue.

"Our nation is being torn apart and made weaker by a Democratic obsession with bringing down our commander in chief. What has happened to the party I have spent my life working in? I can remember when Democrats considered it our duty to defend our way of life."

The look on his face is kind of awe inspiring. The word "Rage" describes his face. "Nothing makes this Marine madder than calling marine troops 'occupiers' rather than 'liberators.'" This guy is so ferociously patriotic it blows the mind. He's a real WWII era hold over. He's a Democrat, yes, but he's an American--something which people like Michael Moore, Jesse Jackson, and John Forbes Kerry can't even comprehend. "It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press."

"It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest."

"It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped in that flag who gives the protestor the freedom to burn that flag."

"No one should even think of being the Commander in Chief of this country if he doesn't believe that our soldiers are liberators abroad and defenders of freedom at home. But don't waste your breath telling that to my party today."

"No two have been more wrong [about foreign policy] than the two senators from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry."

He's now listing the weapons programs Kerry has voted against and the things they have accomplished--the B-1 bomber, the B-2 bomber, the A-10, the Apache, the F-15...

Update: Holy shit this guy is fucking furious. In pauses for breath, his lips keep working in rage and anger. I honestly believe that if John Kerry were to materialize before him right now, he'd kill him with his bear hands. "How you vote tells people who you really are deep inside." Now, Mr. Kerry, what exactly have you done in the 20 years you spent in the Senate? You neglected to mention that at your convention.

"Kerry wants Paris to decide when to defend ourselves." "Kerry who says he doesn't believe in outsourcing wants to outsource our national security." "Kerry wants to be leader of the free world. Free for how long?" I sure hope to god every single person in America is watching this.

Wow. This speech makes up for an entire night of boring mediocrity.

Update: It's people like Zell Miller about whom the phrase, "Open a can of whoopass," was coined.

Now Miller is praising Bush's family devotion and religious faith. "I'm glad that Bush is the same man on Saturday night that he is on Sunday morning." His praise for Bush is more devoted and worshipful than any Republican could ever get away with. I think the real key here is that, coming from a Democrat, this speech is something which one absolutely must take seriously. You have to give his words due consideration. Coming from just-another-Republican you could dismiss it as so much hot air, but in the case of Miller, you know that He. Means. It.
