Zell Miller Awards Swift Boat Vets

And the "Zelly" goes to...


WASHINGTON - For one night only, it'll be spitballs and Swift Boats together on the same stage — a who's who of Sen. John Kerry bashing. The American Conservative Union on Thursday announced it has tapped Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga., to present the "Courage Under Fire" award to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth at the Conservative Political Action Conference's Feb. 16 banquet.

This sounds like a riot. I would love to be a fly on the wall for the night, listening to a bunch of angry people with nothing to be angry about pat each other on the back. So is this event be the ACU's equivalent to John Waters presenting a lifetime achievement award to the Oompa Loompas from the 1971 film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory?

And yes, I realize this post is in bad taste. But you probably knew that from the moment I mentioned John Waters, now, didn't you?
