Give ’em Zell

Former Democratic Senator Zell Miller, who gave a firestarter of a speech at the 2004 RNC, is back in the news.  Seems the President has bestowed an appointment on him:

After snubbing his Democratic Party to deliver the Republican keynote address for President Bush, former Georgia Sen. Zell Miller seemed a good bet for an ambassadorship, adviser post or maybe even a Cabinet office. On Tuesday, the White House revealed Miller’s choice: a seat on the American Battle Monuments Commission.

"I’m just an old man looking after cemeteries," Miller said in an interview Tuesday after President Bush tapped him for the job.

Although Miller has retired from virtually all aspects of public life since leaving the Senate in January, he acknowledged letting Bush know of his interest in the commission last year after returning from the 60th anniversary of the Battle of Normandy.

Congrats, Senator, and thank you for serving our country – both in the military, and in the US Senate.
