Zell Wallace? Connor? Who?

Here's a roundup of reactions to Zell Miller's speech last night at the Republican convention. If the fervor with which the crowd in that hall applauded his vitriol is any indicator, then the Republican party has been taken over by people willing to believe lies, perpetuate hate, and brook no opposition. If Kerry is elected, the right-wing smear machine will make the Clinton years look like hackysack.

I honestly fear for the future of this country. I don't understand those people, and I fear they will never understand me.

I feel your pain...
I wonder if any reporter has asked the Bush twins when they are going to sign up for the War??
I think the front lines would be good. Then they can report back to Dad via a phone...
Since he doesn't read newspapers, this may be the only way he gets what is really happening....

I was thinking that same thing....who in the world would willingly sign on to face that sort of crap....I wonder if it's some sort of long term effort of intimidation to keep the truly decent from ever entering politics. I woudln't put it past them.

"The speech sounded better in its original German"...
OMG, that's too funny.

I have no doubt Kerry's presidency will be a difficult one with the NeoCons nipping at his heels... but is it me, or are they running out of steam? The Smearboat Liars fell apart, Drudge can't get a damn thing to stick, and Karl Rove is resorting to old McCain/2000 tactics.

If Clinton had sites like Atrios, Kos, Bartcop & Buzzflash working around the clock defending him, things would have been a lot easier for him.

That quote is from Molly Ivins. It's referring to Buchanan's speech in 1992.
