Zell Redux: Pell Mell reaction

There's still chattering about "Mad as Hell" Zell and his RNC keynote.

For instance, over at RealClearPolitics, there's bemusement about the level of talk - online and off - about the fire and brimstone. (Rove thought it was too soft. He told me that when he took me for a walk the other day in Missouri. Me, I wondered whether he had had a rabies shot. He was frothing!).

Say what you will about Miller's speech, but at least he was attacking Kerry's record. The bottom line is that over the course of his career as a United States Senator, John Kerry has had to face a number of up or down votes on security-related matters (including the vote for the $87 billion to fund the troops and the reconstruction in Iraq) and he has to live with the consequences of those votes.

But he was an attack dog. What did you expect?

That he was drugged or something? (Oh, yeah, that's what Carville says.)
