    Referring to a recent speech by Mr Kerry, the 72-year-old Georgia senator declared that "nothing makes this old Marine madder than when he hears American troops described as 'occupiers,' rather than liberators." Hardboiled cable pundits were flabbergasted by the performance. One likened Mr Miller to Lester Maddox, Georgia's former racist demagogue governor.


    Rednecks
    by Randy Newman

    Last night I saw Lester Maddox on a TV show
    With some smart-ass New York Jew
    And the Jew laughed at Lester Maddox
    And the audience laughed at Lester Maddox too
    Well, he may be a fool but he's our fool
    If they think they're better than him they're wrong
    So I went to the park and I took some paper along
    And that's where I made this song

    We talk real funny down here
    We drink too much and we laugh too loud
    We're too dumb to make it in no Northern town
    Keepin' the niggers down

    We got no-necked oilmen from Texas
    And good ol' boys from Tennessee
    And colleges men from LSU
    Went in dumb - come out dumb too
    Hustlin' 'round Atlanta in their alligator shoes
    Gettin' drunk every weekend at the barbecues
    Keepin' the niggers down

    We're rednecks, we're rednecks
    We don't know our ass from a hole in the ground
    We're rednecks, we're rednecks
    We're keeping the niggers down

    Now your northern nigger's a Negro
    You see he's got his dignity
    Down here we're too ignorant to realize
    That the North has set the nigger free

    Yes he's free to be put in a cage
    In Harlem in New York City
    And he's free to be put in a cage in the South-Side of Chicago, the West-Side
    And he's free to be put in a cage in Hough in Cleveland
    And he's free to be put in a cage in East St. Louis
    And he's free to be put in a cage in Fillmore in San Francisco
    And he's free to be put in a cage in Roxbury in Boston
    They're gatherin' 'em up from miles around
    Keepin' the niggers down

    We're rednecks, rednecks
    And we don't know our ass from a hole in the ground
    We're rednecks, we're rednecks
    We're keeping the niggers down

    We are keeping the niggers down
