Hey you damn kids! Get off the grass!

Sometimes these things just write themselves:

Bush Taps Miller to Oversee War Monuments

WASHINGTON - After snubbing his Democratic Party to deliver the Republican keynote address for President Bush, former Georgia Sen. Zell Miller seemed a good bet for an ambassadorship, adviser post or maybe even a Cabinet office. On Tuesday, the White House revealed Miller's choice: a seat on the American Battle Monuments Commission.

"I'm just an old man looking after cemeteries," Miller said in an interview Tuesday after President Bush tapped him for the job.

According to the group's Web site, the commission is responsible for commemorating the work of American armed forces since World War I. Among its duties are constructing military burial grounds around the world and designing and constructing monuments.

Jaysus wouldn’t you love to be the architect meeting with THAT commission?

Dammit I said make those cannonballs this big !

Damn. Come to think of it, crazy ol' Zell would have been a lot more fun at the U.N. I mean, we're talking about a guy who gets himself so mad that he could just spit, and then runs with it and actually does spit.

Surely there must be an opening in the Office of Insane Rants somewhere?

I say, give it thirty days at the most.

Jeez, I think we should insert the ol' dipstick into Zell and see if it comes out Alzheimer's. He certainly be's strange lately, or maybe always, who knows.
