Zell Miller: "I am Religious, and we are Right."


Speaking to a crowd at the Sav-a-Life Banquet in Macon last night, Zell Miller said that he didn't mind being called a part of the religious right because, "I am religious, and we are right." At least he is honest about his arrogance. His other "facts" had an air of "truthiness" about them.


For example, did you know that we are producing too few people in the United States? Never mind escalating poverty, if only there were no abortions, we would have plenty of troops to fight the terrorists over there, so that we don't have to fight them over here. Following his logic, we should outlaw abortion so that more young men and women can become causalities of war. Zell's remarks were over the top, even for Zell. Galloway and Baxter have the story here, and you can watch the video here.


It is important to remember that while Miller is capable of climbing out on a limb all alone, he did not do that on this occasion. Here, he simply regurgitated the talking points of radical extremists. Don't believe me? Check the text of Georgia HB 1, a bill filed this year to make abortion illegal. The bill makes similar ridiculous claims.
