He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat

This is fantastic. This isn't just red meat for the base; it's raw meat. Zell Miller fervently believes in what he's saying, but it's not just rhetoric; he's bringing up every single instance of military spending Kerry has voted against, and just how those aircraft and armoured units have been used in the proactive defence of America. And it's utterly humourless but for sarcastic rage: "This is the man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of our US Armed Forces? US forces armed with what, Spitballs?" That was amazingly short, but amazingly great. As manically heroic outgoing blazes of glory go, it is by far the best I've ever seen.
