The Left Self-Destructs

Democratic Senator Zell Miller has endorsed George W. Bush for president.

Life-long left-liberal Roger L. Simon has endorsed George W. Bush for president.

Life-long left-liberal Cara Remal has endorsed George W. Bush for president.

All in the last three days.

Fred Barnes responds:

[Zell Miller's] endorsement is important for several reasons. With Miller on board, Bush will have a head start on forming a Democrats for Bush group in 2004. Such a group would woo crossover votes from conservative or otherwise disgruntled Democrats next year. In 2000, an effort by the Bush campaign to form a Democrats for Bush organization fizzled.
It probably won't fizzle this time.

Democrats: You had better snap out of denial and get your act together fast. You are in so much trouble and you have no idea.

I'm sure conservatives feel like the cat that ate the canary. But if you're like me, even if you know where Zell and Roger and Cara are coming from, this is a major drag. So click on over to Andrew Northrup's place and at least get a good laugh out of it.
