Zell Miller's Dilemma

Zell Miller said a few choice words at the Republican National Convention:

No one should dare to even think about being the Commander in Chief of this country if he doesn't believe with all his heart that our soldiers are liberators abroad and defenders of freedom at home.

But don't waste your breath telling that to the leaders of my party today. In their warped way of thinking America is the problem, not the solution.

They don't believe there is any real danger in the world except that which America brings upon itself through our clumsy and misguided foreign policy.

It is not their patriotism -- it is their judgment that has been so sorely lacking. They claimed Carter's pacifism would lead to peace.

They were wrong.

They claimed Reagan's defense buildup would lead to war.

They were wrong.

Zell Miller is an admirable man, in many ways. He's courageous, having broken ranks with his party's herd mentality. And he's an unabashed patriot. My only question is: Mr. Miller, when will you dump the Democrat Party, and choose a group of people more worthy of your association?
