I wonder whether Zell Miller would have spoken at this year's Republican convention if he were invited.
There is but one man to whom I am willing to entrust their future and that man's name is Geo...
my dad does. But he looks like a Senator lol. He was once mistaken for Newt by Zell Miller lol.
New party. We can't afford to be Zell Miller, here. Don't let sentimentality keep you in a home that's rotting from the inside.
I can remember when Democrats believed that it was the duty of America to fight for freedom over tyranny. -Zell Miller
(although once Zell Miller did things like campaign for Bush, etc. that was a bridge too far, but before he went off the deep end)
I mean, c'mon. At worst even terrible dems like Zell Miller still agreed with us like 50% of the time. Most agree 80-90% of the time
Chris Mathews is has not been fair since he made fun of Zell Miller

Have I said how much I love the Zell Miller Grant? 😍😍
My family is more important than my party.
I recall a SNL Zell Miller saying "Cy Young pitched both games of a doubleheader & all he had was good ol' fashioned opium"
Trump won't have his Zell Miller moment. .
Remember when Zell Miller, a Democrat, spoke at the '04 convention?. Now they're all Democrats. NBD.
HA, just reminisced on when my Former Gov & Senator Zell Miller (D) challenged 2 a duel during the 2004 RNC Convention
Former Gov. Zell Miller of Georgia spoke at the 2004 RNC.
I'm old enough to remember when GOP were raving about Zell Miller. Then again, I'm not a hack pundit.
Although they did once have Zell Miller as a keynote, so it's not perfect...
I want them to roll Zell Miller's crusty *** out to yell at clouds.
I thought the zell Miller speech was the best I've ever heard
I was at Zell Miller's spitballs speech. That was awesome. MSG was louder than any Knicks or Rangers game
And then Zell Miller challenged Chris Matthews to a duel, which also had me rolling.
And if you were too young to remember the Zell Miller 2004 speech... just watch this at least. I was dying:
just found out I somehow qualified for Zell Miller 😍😍😍
Foremost in my mind was the barnburning pile of falsehoods that was Zell Miller's speech.
Motivated more by partisan politics than by national security, today's Democratic leaders se...
Zell Miller was RNC keynote speaker in 2004, the polar opposite of the 2004 DNC speaker Barack Obama
Yesterday was the Hamilton-Burr duel annv. Remember when Zell Miller challenged to a duel @ 2004 RNC?

I'm waiting for Mike Tyson to reprise Zell Miller's 2004 spitballs, but w/ earlobes, at GOP convention.

Indeed. Reminds me of Zell Miller. After hearing him, you just wonder WHY their still a Dem.

True, albeit more of the cards were in the deck when men like Zell Miller served in Congress.
Why is Hillary Clinton more right wing than 1990's version of Zell Miller?
I had free tuition in Georgia under Zell Miller's HOPE Scholarship. No work requirement. I had to keep a certain GPA.
This is why JFK was the last decent Democrat to be President. Last decent Dem PERIOD was Zell Miller.
Right. Sam Nunn, Zell Miller. Even Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor. Those kinds of Democrats no longer exist.
I foresee a round of "HRC will take a lefty running mate to inspire the base!" predictions, followed by a Clinton - Zell Miller ticket.
TIL in 2004, US Senator Zell Miller expressed a desire on live TV to challenge Chris Matthews to a duel via /r/
I benefitted from the HOPE Scholarship under Zell Miller in the mid-90's.
True but Zell Miller credited Gov. Deal with saving it. As far the particular consequences of those reforms, not sure.
there are a few of us around from the Zell Miller days before he jumped the shark
Yeah, Zell Miller said that particular loophole in the hope scholarhsip was one of his greatest regrets as governor.
If I receive the Pell Grant along with Hope, Zell Miller, or the Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant > 😩🙌🏽

I do love how MSNBC set you up with the dual with Zell Miller to prove your liberal chops! Snake oil salesman
I think a divided Dem convention will be forced to nominate a Joe Lieberman/Zell Miller ticket.
Zell Miller is not a "conservative Democrat." He switched to the Republican party.
so as long as you register Dem you're authentic? Like Zell Miller or Michael Bloomberg?

when you don't get Zell Miller by 20 points 😛👍🏻
There was a time when that wouldn't be surprising. Those days ended with the retirement of Zell Miller.
You could always look at it like a blessing because Zell Miller is a pain in the butt to keep
yeah, there's a possibility that I'll get zell miller so I might as well take advantage of it where it's accepted if I do
Hey remember when Zell Miller challenged to a duel? needs to step it up w/his fight w/ Amateurs.
Webb isn't saying anything different than what Zell Miller said in the early 2000s.
At this rate I'm gonna lose zell miller my first semester 😅

The Nets say they have requested waivers on forward Quincy Miller, guard Ryan Boatright & center Chris Daniels.
Had Jim Webb actually gained traction or stayed in the Senate before quitting he could have been the Zell Miller or Joe Lieberman of '16.
Jim the Democrat Party left you long ago. Remember Zell Miller's speech at the 2004 GOP convention?
now knows what Senator Zell Miller figured out a long time ago.
Feel a "Zell Miller-D Georgia" moment coming. The party has left him! Anybody else??
all smoke & mirrors, Issa, Gowdy, i'd say all but. Gohmert & Zell Miller, i out > other about 2 b ousted
I have a lot of respect for Jim Webb. He's an old school democrat like Zell Miller.
Oh, come on now, Zell Miller hasn't weighed in yet.
Jim Webb is finding out like Zell Miller found out. The Democrat Party of Old is no more.
Also, Zell Miller & the Fountain of Youth would make for a great honky tonk band.
It's prob somewhat true, but it's no different then Clinton's pushing Dems to left post Lewinsky. Reference: Zell Miller memoirs.
Zell Miller's campaign for the HOPE scholarship put me through school tuition-free, red states are fertile organizing
Remember when Zell Miller said he wished he could challenge Chris Matthews to a duel? Grit.
Jerry Zeifman is a “lifelong Democrat” in the same way David Horowitz, Bob Beckel or Zell Miller are “lifelong Democrats.”
would have been only slightly better than Zell Miller challenging Chris Matthews to a duel

Happy to be back on the field with my brothers⚾️ @ Zell B. Miller Field
Remember when Zell Miller said John Kerry & Dems would defend the country with spitballs? Doesn't sound so crazy now
I can’t find the Will Forte impersonation of Zell Miller anywhere and it’s driving me nuts. One of the funniest SNL bits ever.
When John Kerry and Zell Miller and George Bush can agree on an issue, you know it's got legs.
I was thinking about some of my characters and 2 you did came to mind, Tim Calhoun and Zell Miller. I saw the real guy on tv once
Every time I hear one of our politicians give a speech I have the same thought: "I miss Zell Miller."
Zell Miller is about to be my best friend🙌
is that number of scholarships or $$ awarded? Any breakdown HOPE scholars vs Zell Miller scholars? Geographic distrib of ZMS?
Must have seen others before this, but earliest memory is clip of Zell Miller challenging Matthews to a duel at the 2004 RNC.

Had a great time with Gov. Zell Miller & my dad, Sam Nunn, today. I'm so honored to have Zell's endorsement!
.with her dad, ex-sen. Sam Nunn, and ex-gov. Zell Miller at Young Harris college.
Sam Nunn was a different kind of Democrat, so was Zell Miller. Today's Democrats are nothing like them.
Interesting..Zell Miller endorses Nathan Deal for Governor in TV ad but earlier endorsed Michelle Nunn Martin for U.S. Senate?
I love Zell Miller (used his MLC a ton at UGA), but I do NOT trust Michelle Nunn, and don't understand why he would back her 🙅🙅🙅🙅
Anyone to the left of Zell Miller is too liberal. Actually, make that Jesse Helms.
Towns: Zell Miller endorses Michelle Nunn for Senate, but Nathan Deal for governor - Atlanta Journal Constitution...
The Zell Miller Mountain Parkway Drug Task Force along with the Pickens County Sheriff's Office conducted an operation that netted them a substantial bust and one arrest. Other arrests are anticipated in the case and they predict a culmination of those may be next week. At approximately 07:30 a.m. this morning the units conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle occupied by a man from the Atlanta area. The vehicle pulled into residence near Henderson Mountain Road and Highway 108. The 37 year-old was taken into custody following the recovery of the $12,000 and the methamphetamine totaling 12 ounces. The officers located the meth inside the vehicle. The arrest was made following a series of search warrants, vehicle stops, and interviews.

The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.

Today is your last day of high school, a day that seemed so far away to your Dad and I. You have made us so proud of all of your achievements. It was hard this year attending YHC taking all of your college English and college math and attending high school, Junior Board, FBLA, cheerleading, being Region 15 FBLA president, maintaining your straight A average since you began school, working toward your goal of achieving the Zell Miller scholarship, and working a part time job to pay for your car. We are so very proud as you will begin the next phase of your education at UGA!! The world needs leaders like you Lesleigh Irvin! Today is only another step in life, and you have amazing friends and memories to keep with you!
The streets are like Georgia's Former Governor, Zig-Zag Zell Miller.
OK, hate the deeds rather than the entire party. There Are good people that are Dem. Zell Miller is one such example.
If you going to Savannah and you're the salutatorian you can definitely get hope, shoot you should be able to get Zell Miller

Gingrey gives shout out to Zell Miller for HOPE but blames state's colleges for constantly raising tuition and fees.
At the Zell Miller center at UGA. Good choice. Miller was a great American.
Rand Paul just went Zell Miller. He might have replaced Bieber as most entertaining ongoing mental breakdown of 2013.
Even when Rand Paul threatens people, he plagiarizes from others: This time from Zell Miller.
Joe Manchin makes me miss Zell Miller. At least Miller was entertaining. Manchin looks like an unemployed Joe Theismann impersonator.
So frustrated that there are no clips online of Will Forte as Zell Miller, FREE THE HARDBALL SKETCHES NBC
So apparently all my scores are there for hope but the zell miller people have absolutely nothing. So freaking annoying
All these people who didnt get zell miller , deserve it more than me . I only took 1 ap class my HS career . Just a bunch of honor classes.
Zell Miller was 1 of the most radical governors in the country by enacting the HOPE program to give Georgia the cheapest college in U.S.
The student loan nightmare is 1 reason I'll always be grateful to Zell Miller, even if he went crazy in the last few years he was in office
am I the only one who has to pay for registering for classes? Like I'm so baffled as to what is Zell Miller paying for?! 😒
They reduced my Dean's scholarship to put in my Zell Miller & GA Tuition Grant. That's $2,350 a semester.
I liked Zell Miller. As someone who worked at the collapsing GDOL anything remotely less dumb and conservative would be worth it.

Only scholarship I could manage to grab was Zell Miller.. & it took me working my *** off for 4 years to get tht shiit lol
Award amounts for the HOPE Scholarship and Zell Miller Scholarship have now been updated to reflect the correct amount for 2013-2014.
Zell Miller's not even close to being the worst Democratic Senator ever. (Theodore Bilbo?)
Clarification. Sam Nunn was the last Dem in Georgia to win a full Senate term; Zell Miller won a special election in 2000.
VSU left me a message, I qualified for Zell Miller. No more loans, Thank God.
Statesman Zell Miller, perhaps the last of a long lost breed of Democrat patriots. Some of you might remember him...
Zell Miller finally came in. I am officially paid for my first year.
Well I almost thought about getting my babies a new brother this evening, he is so cute but a dog is a lot of maintenance... I still have time he is 2 weeks old and is a Shih Tzu chocolate and white... Wanda Redding Waddell my cousin did pick her out one... I am worried about my 2 cats Zell Miller and Betty Talmadge taking too him... I will name him of course after a Democrat and his name will be Lyndon Baines Johnson, if I get him and I will call him Lyndon :)
On June 29, 1993 I was present when Former Gov. Zell Miller purchased the first Lottery ticket ever sold in GA. On today, June 26, 2013 I was invited to the Miller Learning Center @ the Univ of GA to observe the 20th Anniversary of that event. Gov Nathan Deal, Jere Morehead, Pres-elect of the Univ of Georgia, Commissioner of Bright from the Start Bobby Cagle and Debbie D. Alford, Pres & CEO of the Georgia Lottery spoke on the success of HOPE. They all proclaimed Zell Miller as the "father of HOPE". GA has been recognized as one of the most generous states for college & university financial aid because of the HOPE Program. About $6.8 Billion has been awarded to nearly 1.5 million students since 1993. In 1993 42,796 students received $21.4 million in aid. Fast forward, in 2012 256,398 students received $747.7 million in aid. The success of the HOPE Program is undisputed!
Where is Zell Miller? I want him to come forth and tell what he knows about the death of Hosea Williams because the KKK is the culprit that is responsible for many deaths of black men in Georgia during the Wayne Williams trail and I told them so. Now, Wayne didn't kill all of those men, so who ever you are you will be hunted down by God because the blood of those victims are crying and God hasn't forgotten!
One of my favorite moments in recent Media history was when Zell Miller told Chris Matthews he wanted to challenge him to a duel

One semester separates me from the Zell Miller Scholarhip. Straight A's one more time!
They got you too? All my mags are gone as well. All I have left are Zell Miller Spitballs. Hope they work.
My GPA is .1 point away from making me eligible for Zell Miller. Hopefully I get all A's this year
There was one in recent history, Zell Miller. He realized that the party had abandoned the values he treasured.
Sooo... Would Hope & Zell Miller take care of my whole tuition and books?
Zell Miller, who believe it or not was then a loyal Dem was appointed to replace Rep Paul Coverdell

Most Southern Democrats are basically Republicans (see former Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia).
Going Ugly Early Paul Begala: "Our goal was to take Romney's greatest strength--his business record--and make it a weakness. We were given a road map by none other than the late, great Ted Kennedy. As the 2008 election was approaching, I paid the senator a visit. I thought Romney might be the GOP nominee, and Kennedy gave me a tutorial on how to beat him. Don't underestimate Romney, Kennedy said. He's smart and resourceful and will say anything, take any position. Kennedy recounted how his campaign team tracked down employees of companies that had been shut down after being bought by Bain Capital. Shamelessly copying Kennedy's plan, we interviewed dozens of laid-off ­middle-class working people. Their stories were emblematic of the collapse of the middle class: factories closed, health benefits canceled, lives ruined." "My old friend, former Georgia governor and senator Zell Miller, taught me that 'a hit dog barks,' but Romney remained silent. I am still amazed that Romney did not respond. He allowed our ...
2004: Rove predicts the emergence of a "permanent Republican majority" and Zell Miller waxes poetic about the Democratic Party's fate, writing, "It is a rational party no more. It is a national party no more. So bang the drum slowly and play the fife lowly, for the sun is setting over a waiting grave." (Democrats win big in 2006, 2008.) 2009: Time Magazine calls Republicans an "Endangered Species" on its cover, many predict the party's demise. (Republicans win big in 2010.) There are a lot of reasons why Republicans lost this election -- some personality-driven, some policy-based, and some demographic. Parties adapt and survive, and the party on the ropes one year is often resurgent the next, so let's hold off on the funeral orations for now. But if Republicans don't sit up and take notice of this country's demographic changes, we WILL be attending the wake in a few election cycles.
I wrote opinion below to respond to a statement made: Investigate the cost of state sponsored colleges in the south as opposed to colleges in the north, as good starting point most state schools in the south such as, Fl, Ga, Al, Ms, LSU etc cost far less then Lackawanna Junior college per semester. To further allude to the fact Ga Tech who has one of the best engineering schools in the country currently offers tuition at 4,000 per semester for in state residence. Also in Ga they have a STATE sponsored Hope and Zell Miller program that simply put if you have a 3.3 Gpa in weighted classes all tuition fee's are waived, if you have a 3.0 the amount fluctuates from year to year but for this year I believe it is paying 85 cents on the dollar for tuition. Ask yourself how the people up north and myself a former West side resident allowed cost to run rampant in Pa state schools and worst yet why it still continues.
Whoa. Funny. Sadly enuf made me think of nuthead Zell Miller's challenging Chris Matthews to a dual a while back.
Dear SAT, please go easy on me. I'm a nervous wreck and all I'm asking is to get into North Georgia and get Zell Miller. 😰
Pat Caddell is a rare breed. He's not just a Democrat, he's one of the old school Democrats who still retains a high level of integrity. I put him in a class with Joe Lieberman, Zell Miller, and Evan Bayh.
I predict: Chris Matthew's freakout will eventually get more YouTube views than when Zell Miller challenged him to a duel.
Chris Matthews is as fired up as Zell Miller was when Miller challenged Matthews to a duel all those yrs back. WAY more fired up than POTUS
After Romney condemned Obama for "politicizing" national defense and the assassination of Osama bin Laden—a truly rich accusation coming from the party of "Mission Accomplished" and fishily timed political benchmarks in Iraq—people like William Saletan at Slate and Ben Armbruster and Igor Volsky at Think Progress printed substantial quotes from George Bush, *** Cheney, Ed Gillespie and Zell Miller politicizing the war on terror and slamming John Kerry for his lack of leadership and resolve. One person who joined them was Mitt Romney: I think people know pretty well that he's a guy who has a hard time finding which side of a position to come down on. But I'm going to focus on the fact that our nation needs strong leadership. We're under attack, militarily, economically. Our very way of life is under attack. And we need to have... steady, strong leadership. Not only does this quote challenge Romney's ability to manage his own staff of advisors and his attitude toward targeting bin Laden (to borrow anot ...
This is why I am unaffiliated.the Democratic Party was the conservative party at one time. They were for smaller Government, State's Rights, and free trade, to name a few. Zell Miller was the last true Democrat that I remember.
All I remember is Zell Miller going "U.S. Forces Armed with what? SPIT BAWLS?" (30-minute ovation)
Charlie Crist pulls a Zell Miller in Charlotte: He didn't leave the GOP -- it left him.
Whenever I think of John Kerry I think of Zell Miller saying the word SPITBALLS at the RNC in 2004.
isnt that just a rip off of Zell Miller's line from 2006
I wonder if J Kerry is trying 2 re-produce his version of the Zell Miller deconstruction of him in 2004? Remember that one?
John Kerry is now doing to Mitt Romney roughly what Zell Miller did to him in 2004
This year's Zell Miller in reverse! And Kerry is burning down the house as we speak -- the next secretary of state!
Zell Miller said the same thing about the Democrats a few years ago.
Why wouldn't Crist be the Dems answer to *Zell Miller*???
Kerry is essentially doing to Romney what Zell Miller did to him
Watching John Kerry speak. Where's Zell Miller when you need him?
Nice work gov crist, zell miller you are not.
*yawn* that's basically Zell Miller RNC2004. RTRT "I didn't leave the Republican party. It left me." -- Charlie Crist.
John Kerry on the military. Remember when Zell Miller went all Preston Brooks on his *** Charles Sumner was a Massachusetts senator too.
He stole that line from Zell Miller.
Is Charlie Crist this year's Zell Miller, or is his speech more significant, being a Floridian?
I don't do turncoats. Charlie Crist, Zell Miller, Arianna Huffington, et al.
Anyone remember when Zell Miller spoke at the 2004 Republican Convention and this was treated as some kind of major milestone?
He's no Zell Miller / Crist just delivered the vanilla, boilerplate Obama endorsement you can download off the internet.
Remember when Zell Miller flirted with challenging Chris Matthews to a duel on TV?!?
Lieberman didn't hurt Obama at all, but Zell Miller probably hurt Kerry a bit. Depends if narrative rings true.
Zell Miller has chunks of guys like Charlie Crist in his stool.
Gov. Crist's speech was so much more sane than that mess from Artur Davi$ or Zell Miller.
And the thing with Zell Miller is that he was shameless. Crist is too careful. But he just got a standing ovation, so I'm a ***
Is this better or worse than the Zell Miller defection?
I am positive that did not cut away from Zell Miller's speech as they are right now for
Already, Charlie Crist is doing a better job as the "team-switcher" than did the poisonous Zell Miller at the RNC in 2008.
Charlie Christ does a lousy Zell Miller impersonation.
The guys who do the Zell Miller thing and speak against former party at conventions are in awkward position because they look like losers.
He thinks he's joining the winning side. Ask Zell Miller how that worked out
He's no Zell Miller, that's for sure.
I dunno. Crist's classier Zell Miller act leaves a bad taste in my mouth. But someone just shouted "We love you!" so maybe it's working.
I'll take Charlie Crist. They can keep Zell Miller. More than a fair trade.
Yo Charlie Crist, imma let you finish, but Zell Miller had the best political turncoat speech of all time.
you must feel now like I did during Zell Miller's spitball speech.
Crist is good. I think this is effective. Zell Miller without the fire and brimstone.
Crist could do with a little less George H.W. Bush and a lot more Zell Miller.
I see Charlie Crist is at the I hope he goes all Zell Miller on this piece.
If hopes Crist will be like Zell Miller, well, we already knew they lived in an alternate reality so we didn't learn anything new.
; Former Governor Charlie Crist, up at 8:30 EST. Somebody call Zell Miller... ;^)
Somewhere Zell Miller is saying: "What'll they defend our country with? Foo Fighters?"
The effectiveness of Bill Clinton’s speech last night was revealed in a response by CNN analyst and long time top Republican strategist Alex Castellanos when he sighed, “You don’t have to come back tomorrow. This convention is done,” Castellanos said. “This will be the moment that probably re-electe...
Can someone explain what happened to the democrats gone are the Sam Nunn and Zell Miller "conservative" democrats this party has been hijacked by people so far left even my madness can't relate! there is only one option in November! Romney
Okay, I admit it. I'm a Conservative Republican, who is a born-again, Bible-thumpin', Jesus-praisin' Christian. Though I vehemently disagree with Democrats on basics, I have always recognized, that there are (were) a lot of well-meaning Democrats who loved the Lord and just saw things of the heart similar to me (hello Zell Miller). But now, I have to ask, how can ANY Democrat with an ounce of Faith stay with the Democratic Party? They "reinstate" God after they realized they just gave Republicans a gift on a golden platter. But, the majority of delegates BOOed the action. What in the world have they come to? The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. --Psalm 51:3 Have they no fear of God? How arrogant. How dangerous.
The DNC has sunk to a new low. Which is hard to do. If Romney is elected, this lady's kid will die. BS. That is ridiculous. Really shameful and pathetic. I figured they would hold off on Major scare tactic nonsense til at least Thursday. This is not the party of Harry Truman or Zell Miller. That is for sure. Shameful.
I want to hear a Democrat speak at the Republican convention, ha oh wait that happened already Georgia's own Zell Miller
I guess I'm just a convention hipster. Remember when Zell Miller sorta challenged Chris Matthews to a duel? Those were the days.
After his speech at the 2004 Republican Convention, Zell Miller challenges Chris Matthews to a duel.
I'm having giggle conniptions like when Zell Miller spoke. David Gergen is going to get very stern later.
There aren't that many people who have addressed both conventions: Zell Miller, Joe Lieberman, Cardinal Dolan, and now Artur Davis. And the Democrats are angry.
Artur Davis is about to have his Zell Miller moment. Miller, a Democratic senator from Georgia, famously switched allegiances in 2004 to endorse President Ge...
Zell Miller was more entertaining than Arthur Davis. For whatever that's worth.
“Zell Miller was better.” hannity just called him "Arthur" and I wonder if he'll challenge Chris Matthews to a duel??
says Arthur Davis is the Zell Miller of this
Artie Davis should have gone full Zell Miller spitballs.
Neither Arthur Davis nor C. Crist have power Zell Miller had in 04. Cant help but wonder if theyd be there had they not lost their last race
Arthur Davis is only speaking tonight because Zell Miller is too old
There have been a lot of talk about who is going to be the surprise celebrity guest speaker at the Republican National Convention and there are lots of guessing but I am not sure if it will be Sarah Palin who I love or Donald Trump who is awesome and also a beloved job creater or what some people are saying is maybe an actual demo-RAT who knows that our Once Proud Republic can not handle another four years with 0-bow-ma Hussein like that Zell Miller guy did back in 2004 so I cannot wait to see who that is because not even demo-RATs can stand 0-bow-ma Hussein anymore. Thank you.
We really need a "CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRAT" like Zell Miller. Conservative Democrats have been silenced in their own party.
Artur Davis wants to be as relevant as Zell Miller in 4 years -

Linc Chafee is no Zell Miller.. Probably going to be as bad as Jim Leach.. remember him?
“Big fan of Zell Miller.” His Democrat Party is long dead. Done. I miss him, the last of the reasonable Dems IMHO.
did Zell Miller&Joe Lieberman get speaking spots in the past at the RNC? DNC doesn't allow Pro-lifers to speak at their Conv.
Chris Christie is the dark alley version of Zell Miller. No surprise the ever-increasing angry picked him for keynote at Tampa.
