22. I think we are all waiting for an answer to the "zell" question...
The only answer seems to be, he is just another REPUG sellout. Not unlike Colorado Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell, except the latter had the decency to make it official and leave the Democratic Party. (excuse my mix of the off-quoted analogy, but a Native American swapping to the Repuglican party is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders).

I would never defend either one. To understand their actions though, is simply to acknowledge that they made the conscious decision to exploit the conservative tide that was coming to their State.

To somehow use Zell as the example to explain what is going on in the South is unfair, I think, except to acknowledge the Repub stronghold that has gripped the state, (like Colorado). But there are surely liberal strongholds, (e.g., Atlanta), just like there are in Colorado (Denver, Boulder, Aspen). No monolith here, just as there is no monolith in Georgia. And, as one who was largely raised in the South, issues of race and heritage are complex. Black and white "takes" on these issues do us all a disservice.
