zell miller, social critic

it's not like i like going to his homepage. but every now and then it's kinda fun to see what ole wacky things zell has been saying from time to time. his latest posted floor statement is about the 'deficit of decency' in america. it's full of moral outrage at popular culture. i was personally offended that he didn't include a transcript of his remarks; rather, he had for download a 60mb realmedia video file so you could watch him get all pissy. dude, man, save the bandwidth for the children.

so i hopped on over to thomas.loc.gov and searched the congressional record for 'deficit of decency.' thanks, zell. i'm not watching your damn video.

Does any responsible adult ever listen to the words of this rap-crap? I would quote you some of it, but the Sergeant at Arms would throw me out of this Chamber, as well he should.

Then there was that prancing, dancing, strutting, rutting guy, evidently suffering from jock itch because he kept yelling and grabbing his crotch. But, then, maybe there is a culture of crotch grabbing in this country I don't know about. But as bad as all that was, the thing that yanked my chain the hardest was seeing this ignoramus with his pointed head stuck up through a hole he had cut in the flag of the United States of America, screaming about having ``a bottle of scotch and watching lots of crotch.''

rap and bad cockrock are killing america. it's like 1989 all over again, when hair metal and, well, rap were destroying our culture. seems we made it through okay. i'm not a fan of kid rock, but he obviously knows his audience, and zell miller is definitely not one of them. after all, his chain is yanked, and he's not going to have any of that filfthy innuendo in the public arena.

Think about that. This is the same flag to which we pledge allegiance. This is the same flag that is draped over coffins of dead young uniformed warriors, killed while protecting Kid Crock's boney butt. He should be tarred and feathered and ridden out of this country on a rail. You talk about a good reality show? That would be one.

don't like what he's singing about? kick him out of the country. it's obvious that zell miller doesn't have any reasonable critiques of the music itself, and maybe that would be a better place to start than zany stage antics and how he uses the flag (that evil kid rock, who has performed at u.s.o. shows, indeed, who must hate those dead soldiers). i will, however, give him bonus points for calling justin timberlake that 'rutting guy.' i don't think i've heard anybody called that in a long time. thank god no all-american baseball players aren't a part of that nasty crotch-grabbing culture.

I am pleased to be a cosponsor of S.J. Res. 26, along with Senator Allard and others, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to marriage; and S. 1558, the Liberties Restoration Act, which declares religious liberty rights in several ways, including the Pledge of Allegiance and the display of the Ten Commandments.

and, of course, the solution: amending the constitution to limit the rights of others! yeehaw. because it's not just the musicians -- it's also gays destroying our families, too. or it's families destroy themselves from within and then blame everybody else when it all goes to hell, but details aren't really important when you have the opportunity to stand up on your soapbox and pass tough laws.

Today, I join Senator Shelby and others with the Constitution Restoration Act of 2004 that limits the jurisdiction of Federal courts in certain ways.

In doing so, I stand shoulder to shoulder, not only with my Senate cosponsors and Chief Justice Roy Moore of Alabama, but more importantly with our Founding Fathers in the conception of religious liberty and the terribly wrong direction our modern judiciary has taken us.

and, in an gratuitous nod to mainstream america, zell miller supports roy moore, the man who defied the important american principle of the RULE OF LAW to display his ten commandments monument illegally. and, while we're at it, we'll take a snipe at those left-wing bastard activist judges, since all the good judges are conservative, strict constructionists who would can read texts literally and discern intent without any interpretation whatsoever. and they'd never, say, go on a hunting trip with the vice president when a case he is involved in is on the books in the near future.

of course not. so maybe yesterday i was wrong. maybe our culture is going to be the end of us. i thought 'rock your body' was a harmless pop song with a good beat. perhaps that slide to oblivion really is occuring, and zell miller is right.

there's just one little problem. it's hard to shake your ass to 'just as i am.' i've tried, and it makes me look even dorkier than when i try to get down to dance music. it's not pretty.
