Gorilla glue???

I wish we lived in a time when you could challenge a nut to a duel.

Zell Miller strikes again!

Miller was the Thursday keynoter at the annual gathering of the American Legislative Exchange Council, which ostensibly is a bipartisan or nonpartisan group of legislators. In practice, however, ALEC is overwhelmingly Republican, as evidenced by the the speakers Thursday who bashed President Barack Obama and the the Democratic majority in Congress. This morning at breakfast it was economist Stephen Moore. At lunch it was WSB radio host Herman Cain, a former Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, and then Miller, who served as a Democrat but famously rejected the party near the end of his time in Washington.

… Obama, “our globe-trotting president,” Miller said, “needs to stop and take a break and quit gallivanting all around. I think (chief of staff) Rahm Emanuel ought to get some Gorilla Glue and put it in that chair in the Oval Office and say ‘Sit here awhile.’”

Oh, he must meant a brand of glue … he wasn’t saying anything racist … right …???

    I’m not so convinced that Miller’s reference to Gorilla Glue was anything but what it was. On the other hand, Super- or Krazy-Glue would’ve been more universally recognized.

    “Globe-trotting,” however… http://www.emich.edu/focus_emu/011706/011706_images/briefs/globetrottersWeb.jpg
