A National Party No More: The Conscience of a Cons&hellip by Zell Miller
Zell Miller did quite a lot for his state and his country so it's disappointing to find him writing a book whose main premise is essentially that all of the nation's ills are caused by Democrats and/or liberals. Really, Senator, you are better than that! Anyone who is concerned about the truth as much as the Senator should know that truth is not the sole property of one party.

I'm not sure why Bush supporters see this book as supportive of his cause. If anything, it does the opposite and makes some of his advisors look extremely shortsighted at least and almost criminal liars at worse.
Cheney appears in the worst possible light here with a fairly unique drive to fight. The reasons for this drive are not really explained but can be assumed because of… Read more
