There are some Democrats Frank likes – Zell Miller, for example. Well that clinches his non-partisan creds for me.

Every time I hear Zell’s name I think of that scene in Marathon Man where the old woman recognizes the Nazi walking down the street and runs after him shrieking “ZELL! ZELL! ZELL!”

If I ever see him in person that’s what I’m gonna do. It would be sweet.


Hold on, here. There’s a problem. Salvato’s editorial misuses the word “cannot.” What he means to say is “Kerry must not win.”

It’s a common error–but one that here causes himself to shoot his argument in the foot.
