Whopper: Zell Miller

“Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.’


Listing all the weapon systems that Senator Kerry tried his best to shut down sounds like an auctioneer selling off our national security. … For more than 20 years, on every one of the great issues of freedom and security, John Kerry has been more wrong, more weak, and more wobbly than any other national figure.
Sen. Zell Miller, “D”-Ga., Sept. 1, 2004My job tonight is an easy one: to present to you one of this nation’s authentic heroes, one of this party’s best-known and greatest leadersand a good friend. … John has worked to strengthen our military. … 
Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga., March 1, 2001
