Part 1: Zell Miller Gives Absurd Speech

Zell Miller the Democrat in name only from Georgia, gave a stupid speech rife with Biblical grandstanding and demunciations of American popular culture. Like any good fundamentalist, he began with a quote from the Bible and found a way to work it into his speech to give the speech validity, I assume. He also quotes historian Arnold Toynbee as saying "Of the 22 civilizations that have appeared in history, 19 of them collapsed when they reached the moral state America is in today." What is going to cause the collapse of America, Zell? "Whether it is removing a display of the Ten Commandments from a courthouse or the nativity scene from a city square. Whether it is eliminating prayer in schools or eliminating "under God" in the pledge of allegiance. Whether it is making a mockery of the sacred institution of marriage between a man and woman or, yes, telecasting around the world made-in-the-USA filth masquerading as entertainment." Wow, so a tit on tv is going to bring us down. If thats the case, then I guess we aren't so great after all.
Zell outdoes himself when he refers to Viacom, the company that owns MTV, Nickelodeon, among many others, as "the pagan temple of Viacom-Babylon."
Heres another quote:
But as bad as all this was, the thing that yanked my chain the hardest was seeing that ignoramus with his pointed head stuck up through a hole he had cut in the flag of the United States of America, screaming about having "a bottle of scotch and watching lots of crotch." Think about that.
This is the same flag that we pledge allegiance to. This is the flag that is draped over coffins of dead young uniformed warriors killed while protecting Kid Crock's bony butt. He should be tarred and feathered and ridden out of this country on a rail. Talk about a good reality show, there's one for you.

Wow, thats a good one, tar and feathering. Talk about a backwater hick. And if dead soldiers with flags on their coffins are so important, why didn't your president go to the funerals? Or allow pictures of the soldier's coffins?
Now on to part two, which is about the bill that Miller introduced during the speech.
