miller's crossing

i think it's time that you stop using that simple substitution cypher and just put an r next to your name:

Democratic Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia said Wednesday he will endorse President Bush in the coming presidential election.

"This does not mean I am going to become a Republican," Miller said in a written statement. "It simply means that in the year 2004, this Democrat will vote for George Bush."

Miller first declared his intention in an online interview with The Weekly Standard, saying Bush is "the right man at the right time."

'going to become?' methinks it already happened a long time ago. for all of the lazy potshots taken at lieberman for being a dino (and, hey, who hasn't done that? it's primary season!), his voting record is still more liberal than, oh, john mccain. but zell miller... well, this is the guy who wholeheartedly supported all of bush's tax cuts and anwr drilling. he recently introduced a bill trying to end filibusters being used to block republican judicial nominees, apparently having forgotten how the republicans pulled their rules-changing shenanigans in committtee to control which nominees went to the floor once they got into power. which, of course, is why democrats started using the filibusters in the first place.

superb. and now he endorses bush. thank god he's not going to run again. i mean, i'm all for keeping democratic seats, but it's not like it was doing much good here.

he is also quoted as saying that

The next five years "will determine the kind of world my children and grandchildren will live in," Miller said in an interview. And he wouldn't "trust" any of the nine Democratic presidential candidates with governing during "that crucial period," he said. "This Democrat will vote for President Bush in 2004."

hey, it's for the sake of the children! don't trust those nasty democrats to run the country or the world will go to hell. and zell miller has been fighting for a good world for a long time, like in his bold remarks on 09/12/01:

I say, bomb the hell out of them. If there's collateral damage, so be it. They certainly found our civilians to be expendable.

yeah, for the children!
