US REP BRAD MILLER (D-NC): ‘I’d Pull For the Taliban’

(ASSOCIATED PRESS) Democratic Congressman Brad Miller (D-NC) told AP’s Christina Rexrode that if Duke’s basketball team were to play a theoretical game against the Taliban, he would have to “pull for the Taliban”.

Cute, but hardly impolitic. For that, we turn to U.S. Rep. Brad Miller.

After speaking with the state’s five-term congressman last week, Rexrode decided to call back when North Carolina State made the Sweet 16 as well, and ask about divided loyalties.

“The way I deal with it is, I scream my lungs out for Carolina,” Miller said. “I make no pretense that I am at all half-hearted in my support for Carolina. Nobody in North Carolina would trust a politician who claimed to be neutral on a matter as important as college basketball.”

Miller said he rooted for N.C. State against Georgetown, And when they play out-of-state. And any time a Wolfpack win doesn’t affect Carolina’s ranking.

Duke is another story altogether.

“I have said very publicly that if Duke was playing against the Taliban,” Miller said very publicly again, “then I’d have to pull for the Taliban.”

Guess who’s not running for re-election?

    Well let me be very public as a candidate for US Congress in the 4th district of NC. Miller is an idiot for saying that and should be ashamed. Those kind of comments show us in NC just what kind of nut has been representing us.

    With a comment like that, as a veteran , is almost treason….you are a sick individual to take college hoops to that extent…I lost a friend in the military fighting against the Taliban…do us all a favor and kill yourself…. Oh by the way Kansas will bury NC today..Maybe you will get this message prior to the game and take my advice and won’t see it..You are sick s.o.b. to post something like that….I will go tommorow and put a Duke flag on my friends grave…you very very sick….s.o.b..

    I see Miller was old enough to be a VietNam Vet, probably just a draft dodger like Clinton, and the rest of the Washington commies, I hate civilians
