The nerve of Dems who have their own opinions..

Peanut farmer and former president Jimmy Carter has written an angry letter to Zell Miller for having the nerve to have his own opinion.

From the letter:
"By now, there are many of us loyal Democrats who feel uncomfortable in seeing that you have chosen the rich over the poor, unilateral pre-emptive war over a strong nation united with others for peace, lies and obfuscation over the truth and the political technique of character assassination as a way to win elections or to garner a few moments of applause

If you go to the post below this one, you can see that the whole rich over poor thing isn't exactly acturate. As far as unilateral, we do have a very good coalition - and it's pretty obvious why there are certain people we couldn't get to join because it was in their self-interest not too.

And no politician has ever advocated character assasination to win an election.

Of course, it takes a lot of balls to sit next to Michael Moore at the Democratic National convention - a guy who does nothing but character assasination, who goes out of his way to portray an elderly and sick man like Charles Heston as a racist, and then accuse Zell of character assasination.

And do you notice that when Republicans switch sides or don't toe party line (the "maverick" John McCain, Jim Jeffords) they are lauded as heros, but when a Democrat like Zell speaks his mind, he's a traitor.
