When Democrat Zell Miller speaks at the Republican convention, headline writers take notice.

The National Journal writes:
Headline writers rarely pass up the chance to use a pun, and Georgia Sen. Zell Miller gives them plenty of fodder. A few of our favorite headlines from today:

-- "Mad as Zell" -- the New York Post
-- "The Devil in Zell" -- AlterNet
-- "Is Miller a Zell-out?" --
-- "ZELLEPHANT GONE WILD!!!" -- DNC press release
-- "For the GOP, Giving 'Em Zell" -- the Washington Post

Only a few mentions of his old nickname, "Zig-Zag Zell," crept in to today's coverage. Alliteration is no match for the mighty power of the pun.
(Thanks, Angie!)
