Zell Miller Demands Speaking Role At Dem Convention

Eager To Not Bash Bush, Say Colleagues

Today Republican Democratic Senator Zell Miller -- who has been given a speaking role at the Republican National Convention -- demanded a speaking role at the Democratic Convention.

"I wanted to put in a good word for the achievements of Democrats willing to work closely with Republicans to accomplish real good for Democrats working with Republicans," Miller said.

The winning entry was by Andante of Collective Sigh.

There were many, many fine entries, all of which made me laugh out loud. I'd like to pick some runner ups but I'm just way too tired -- it's 3:00 a.m. and I have a 9:15 a.m. train to catch out of here.

But they'll be coming! Thanks to all who participated, whether you wrote a headline or just laughed at one. It is you who make this a community worth blogging for.

Update: I'm working on the runners-up, and I'll also be posting the swag that Andante will get for her win. . . .
