Zell's Short Farewell:

Fox News has tapped retiring Sen. Zell Miller (D.-Ga.), an ardent Bush supporter, to serve as a political commentator.

Miller, famous for his pungent candor, recalled a scene from Shakespeare in his November 18 farewell to the Senate: “In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, his friend Laertes is going off to college and his father Polonius is giving him some usual advice that you give when your sons go off to college. After all the words of caution that I hope fathers still give their sons, Polonius ended with these words, ‘This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou cans’t not be false to any man.’ I’ve always believed that and I’ve tried to live that.”
