According to the creepy, angry and mendacious Zell Miller (a little more than 4 years ago):
"If this is a national party, sushi is our national dish. If this is a national party, surfboarding has become our national pastime." Source. (quoting Miller's book, )
In A National Party No More, Miller rants and drones on and on and on, ad nauseum, about how the Democratic Party and its leadership will marginalize itself into irrelevancy by continuing to lose the South and that it will continue to lose the South because, basically, it (the Democratic Party) is not right wing enough.
Well, Virginia's gone Democratic.
Florida's gone Democratic.
And in North Carolina, out of 4.2 million votes cast for President, about 12,000 separate McCain and Obama.
From a National, Electoral Vote, standpoint, it stands about Obama 349 and McCain 147.
So, how're those predictions working out for you, Zell?
A little over a week ago The Hill reported this re: Miller --
"The conservative Democrat from Georgia has kept a relatively low profile this presidential election. In 2004, Miller delivered a blistering attack on then-Democratic nominee Sen. John Kerry (Mass.) during his keynote address at the GOP convention."
And then there's this year's Zell Miller: Joe Lieberman.
How can someone with such political experience be so incredibly clueless?
In an earlier Comment I wrote:
Republicans (talking here about the Party Leaders/Top Hangers-on) have all the opportunity in the world to soul-search and re-calibrate who they are and what their Party stands for in order to return to relevancy.
With "leaders" like Mitch McConnell, Sarah Palin, Jeff Sessions and other strange, creepy and base people they will only become more shriveled and angry. McCain's gracious concession speech will be utterly lost on them. And many of their own followers will abandon them. And they will fall even further.
Oh, and by the way, Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman. Heh. And how do they look today?
That about sizes it up.
