On Tuesday, the convention featuring a rousing speech by Arnold, followed by a more sedate speech by Laura Bush aimed at women’s voters.
Well last night, we had a blistering, no-holds-barred speech by Zell Miller, again followed by Dick Cheney, who touted the domestic agenda, talked up Bush and the importance of the war on terrorism, and then laid into John Kerry, albeit not as effectively as Zell Miller. Not that Cheney did a bad job, but he just couldn’t compare to the sheer voltage Miller was pumping out.
Speaking of Miller…WOW! He looked furious and sounded like a Baptist preacher unleashing a sermon about fire and brimstone as he STRIPPED THE HIDE off not only John Kerry, but his whole party on defense. And the delegates were lovin’ it so much that you could practically see the little hearts floating above their heads as they stared at Miller with open mouthed admiration.
Personally, I was so happy to hear a Senator, not a columnist or blogger, nailing the Democrats for how reckless they are about defending America from external threats, that I was ready to do a snoopy dance across the room.
Here’s Miller’s speech. You may want to be on the look-out for the beat-down he laid on Kerry’s votes against various weapons systems which culminated with his asking if Kerry wants our Armed Forces to have to defend themselves with spitballs. That was my fave part of the speech….
