Zell: Democrats "lynching" judges
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia came under fire Friday from civil rights activists who demanded an apology from the conservative Democrat after he equated his party's opposition to the nomination of a conservative African-American judge to a lynching.

Miller -- who has already rankled Democrats by endorsing President Bush for re-election -- refused to apologize.

"Either Senator Miller has conveniently forgotten a frightening period of American history, or he is willfully demeaning all those African-Americans who were hung from trees throughout the period of racial segregation in the South," said Wade Henderson, the director of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights.

Henderson and others were reacting to comments made by Miller on the Senate floor around 2 a.m Friday, when he blasted Democrats for blocking the nomination of California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

3. So the Repugs are appointing another African American?
These people have realized that being inclusive (even though their politics stink) is the ticket to our destruction!

4. ....
If he switched sides the only effect would be that the media would give him less attention.

5. "Benidict" Miller decieved the DEM base that elected him...
...so why should anyone believe anything this turn-coat says???

He is untrustworthy, and he decieved his supporters who helped elect him- he should be ashamed of his dishosest conduct.

6. Zill is employing Orwellian arithmetic
Trying to convince people 4 is greater than 63. Dems held up 4 judges and the Pubs held up 63 judges during the Clinton years. One wonders if Zell was a Republican Trojan horse all along.

8. Zell.... What happened
As a liberal and native Georgian, I can attest that Zell was bodysnatched and replaced by a pod person years ago.
