People who live in mud huts should not throw mud, especially if it comes from their own roofs. As Scripture says, don't point to the speck in your neighbor's eye when you have a piece of kindling in your own. I see by the papers that the Republicans want to make an issue of Nancy Pelosi in the congressional races this fall: Would you want a San Francisco woman to be speaker of the House? Will the podium be repainted in lavender stripes with a disco ball overhead? Will she be borne into the chamber by male dancers with glistening torsos and wearing pink tutus? After all, in the unique worldview of old elephants, San Francisco is a code word for g-a-y, and after assembling a record of government lies, incompetence and disaster, the party in power hopes that fear of g-a-y-s will pull it through in November. Running against Nancy Pelosi, a woman who comes from a district where there are known gay persons, is a nice trick, but it does draw attention to the large shambling galoot who is speaker now, Tom DeLay's enabler for years, a man who, judging by his public mutterances, is about as smart as most high school wrestling coaches. For the past year, Dennis Hastert has been two heartbeats from the presidency. He is a man who seems content just to have a car and driver and three square meals a day. He has no apparent vision beyond the urge to hang onto power. He has succeeded in turning Congress into a branch of the executive branch. If Mr. Hastert becomes the poster boy for the Republican Party, this does not speak well for them as the Party of Ideas.
Ranks right up there with Sean Penn in the apparently contradictory combination of artistic talent and otherwise imbecility.
...and brings to mind, Babs, the dixie chinks, Mr whats-his-name, my favorite Revlon babe over 40, and a host of others who think they can say and do whatever they want without any consequences.
Initially this editorial was formatted even on the what it will look like screen the paragraphs were there, but somewhere between edit and post, things went bad, sorry.
Garrison needs to stay in Lake Woebegone where he can control everyone and everything. What a wonderful liberal life that is for him.
Hey, it's DG weighing in. Long time no see.
Let's face it ...without the gibbering idiots of the Left listening to NPR so they can feel less alone in their hatred for America, Garrison Keillor would be working as a fill-in marsupial at the local zoo.
Ships passing in the night ;-) Glad to read your post on Keillor's psuedo-intellectualism.
Garrison Keillor fill-in marsupial, it does have a ring.
He's trying to get publicity for his movie that's coming out this week.
The title alone turned me off.
Keillor offers no agenda and program by the ultra-left branch of Democrats, to which he belongs, in this opinion peice. Biting wit and word-smithing your feelings doesn't count for missing agenda and a plan to protect and promote the nation's agenda.
Geeeesh. I could feel myself falling asleep just trying to read this. The faux folksiness overwhelmed me.
Just another liberal standing atop a perceived victim ("g-a-y-s") to bark out his looney tooney message.
If you dare criticize or campaign against Pelosi, you must be homophobic! What a load of garbage.
Speaking of the left, you certainly live among them if you are in MN. Not only that, but isn't MN Mr. Keillor's home? Your bravery is of note.
You always get me laughing!
We will gladly export Mr Bombast and Fury Kellior to any state in the Union. He made his name doing a poor F Scot Fritzgerald impression in New York. Frankly we would be happy if he stayed there.
Pelosi is more than just a resident of a diverse/perverse town. Her politics are extreme.
But nice of this taxpayer funded boob to use a broad brush to paint conservatives as bigots. We hate commies. Get it right.
