I got this email from John Lewis today, along with a WTF? email from another friend who has been living in the UK and has not been aware of Zigzag Zell’s antics lately:
Dear Fellow Democrat, (Mabe you should just call me “Fellow Lover of Democracy” or something. -ed.)
I know you are a proud Democrat. So am I. We should be proud, and the top-to-bottom strength of this year’s Democratic ticket just makes it easier. The Democratic Party is fighting for America’s working families, embracing the diversity of our great nation, and making us stronger at home and respected in the world.
That’s why I am so deeply disappointed in my old friend, Zell Miller.
This week, Zell is the toast of the GOP, speaking to the Republican Convention in New York. Never mind that he completely denounced George H. W. Bush and the Republican Party at the 1992 Democratic Convention. Really, the Democratic Party of Georgia has the video right here.
Zell built a long career off the support and work of Georgia Democrats. Now he’s showing up all over the country, telling any who’ll listen that “the Democratic Party left him.”
