Newt Gingrich's naysayers should be careful about making fun of his policy flip-flops and luxurious personal spending -- they just might get challenged to a duel.
As The Hill reports, Gingrich has announced that former Sen. Zell Miller, the former segregationist Southern Democrat turned progressive turned right-wing conservative, will co-chair his presidential campaign. Also co-chairing is former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, and current Gov. Nathan Deal (who has previously flirted with birtherism, but has since moved on) will head up the campaign in Georgia.
Miller has the interesting distinction of having keynoted the 1992 Democratic convention, delivering a rip-roaring speech against President George H.W. Bush. Then 12 years later, he keynoted the 2004 Republican convention, delivering a rip-roaring speech for President George W. Bush, and slamming Democratic nominee John Kerry (a man he had previously praised as an American hero) and the whole Democratic Party.
Memorably, when questioned about these inconsistencies by Chris Matthews, Miller gave such replies as "Get out of my face," and, "I wish we lived in the day where you could challenge a person to a duel."
Since then, he has consistently endorsed Republican candidates, and railed against liberals.
