DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ADJUST THE PICTURE...:
Sen. Zell Miller, the fire-and-brimstone-preaching Dixiecrat who tried to challenge MSNBC's Chris Matthews to a duel after delivering the keynote speech at the Republican National Convention, has been welcomed with open arms by Fox News Channel.While this will give liberal Democrats heart attacks, it makes me want to burst joyfully into song. How about a revised stanza from an old Fifth Dimension hit?
The cable network announced yesterday it has signed the departing Georgia Democrat as a contributor, beginning in January.
Details were scant. Kevin Magee, FNC's vice president of programming, told The TV Column, "We will plug him in wherever we can use him."
Divorcing Zell Blues
Zell, you scare Dems so, you shout so well.
They look at you and see their grandpa's voting base,
Back when your party still kept down that other race.
They were on your side Zell when y'all seceeded.
They ignored the lynchings y'all thought you needed.
But now TV news has ended that, well, good bye to you, Zell.
