Santorum Snags a Bush Supporter!

Headline stolen wholesale from the clever Waveflux, who found this gem: Zell Miller leads Democratic coalition for Santorum.


Former Sen. Zell Miller, a Georgia Democrat who supported President Bush in 2004, will head a new group of Democrats supporting Pennsylvania GOP Sen. Rick Santorum's reelection bid.
"I am not involved in any other race in the country," Miller said during a radio interview Monday, according to a news release from Santorum's campaign. "I am only doing this for Rick Santorum. I believe in Rick Santorum's leadership that much."
Lucky Ricky. I guess being a noted Tolkien scholar has dubious benefits. As Waveflux says, "Frankly, it's hard to imagine what Miller can possibly do for Santorum's sinking campaign that a doorstop couldn't do, and with considerably less anger."
