Democratic Senator Zell Miller announced his support for Bush’s re-election today, in a move which didn’t surprise anyone. He also announced his leadership of an organization called “Democrats for Bush.” Miller also re-affirmed his status as a Democrat, but he did have harsh words for the national Democratic Party.
Hmmm…he’s a Democrat who supports the other party’s nominee, and doesn’t support his national party. Miller went on to say that the Bush tax cuts have helped “boost the economy” and followed with the tired White House chestnut about Kerry wanting to raise taxes by $900 billion. There was absolutely nothing in Miller’s statement which suggested Democratic affiliation at all, and in fact he comes off sounding like Scott McClellan’s evil twin brother.
