I don't think Garrison Keillor likes the pubbies very much

But then who in their right mind does.


I thought Garrison Keillor was dead.


I’m no fan of his show, but that guy knows how to throw some fire.

At least the dude has a way with words. I found his approach refreshing, after reading the same old “Bushco” crap for the past several months.

Hey Reeder: Did you catch the protest group, “Billionaires For Bush” on TV last night? They were dressed in formal wear, with top hats, canes and stuff. That was funny!
See, if some of you guys here had the least tad of a sense of humor it would help your cause some.

I haven’t seen them but I have heard much about them on NPR.

…and Matha’s Kitty Botique…

Not exactly the biggest secret of the universe.

I always made it a point to tune in to his show every Saturday back in the 80’s. I still listen every now and then, but the show doesn’t hold the same charm it used to.

I read an interview with Garrison Keillor on salon.com a couple weeks ago, discussing his new book, “Homegrown Democrat: A Few Plain Thoughts From the Heart of America,” why he’s speaking out politically now, and why Prairie Home Companion isn’t a political show. Keillor responds to the last issue by saying, “The show ought to be entertaining in every sense of the term, to people of any political stripe, my people and also ignorant fascist bastards.”

Most likely why I don’t enjoy it as much anymore. As I have become more conservative over the last 20 years, he has become more liberal. As much as he would like to think he keeps his show neutral - it’s not. Wonder how the ratings have fared since his latter 80’s peak?

… The No.1 reason the rest of the world thinks we?re deaf, dumb and dangerous.?..

But I bet you sure play a mean pinball? :slight_smile:

Psssst! John-boy! Those are our guys!

Oh if you keep a cat
or keep two or three
you know that cats are people just like you and me

And that they do have needs
and if they could speak
they’d say I need some stuff from Bertha’s Kitty Boutique

The promo for this coming Saturday’s Prairie Home Companion promises to have George W. Bush and John Kerry playing “horse” with road apples. :cool:

Garrison Keillor is the ugliest thing on two feet, but when he gets political he gets me cheering.

Psssst! 'luci! I know those guys are Dems. I’ll bold the operative word in my original statement for you this time: “…See, if some of you guys here had the least tad of a sense of humor it would help your cause some.”

Here being the SDMB, to further clarify for you. Hope this helps.

Sad, isn’t it.

The party of Wilson and Worthiness was transmogrified into the party of greasy-haired movie producers and academic shills, faith-bashing anarchists, fanatic bullies with tax notices, atheists of convenience, freelance wimps, saturnine hand wringers, hysterical feminists of NPR, wealth fetishists, millionaires in blue jeans, KGB with pierced noses, farm vandals, lackeys, lap dogs, pacifist cowards, Lamborghini socialists, people who believe American soldiers rape and murder routinely, little windbags who think the rest of us are stupid, Hillary’s evil spawn and their Sky-Is-Falling presidential candidate, a tedious and willowy man oblivious to the heartbeat of America and to his own roots, whose philosophy is a cloud of shape-shifting fog struggling to become a shadow. Democrats: The No. 1 reason the rest of the world thinks we’re lazy, spineless, and licentious.

Garrison Keillor? Who? Ohhhhhh, you mean GARY Keillor, that dweeb from Minnesota who thought a new name, a tweed jacket and an address in Manhattan would make him look like less of a rube and a dork.

P.S. It isn’t working.

WTF is an “atheist of convenience”?

What’s wrong with millionaires in blue jeans? I don’t think it’s required to wear cashmere pants or whatever when you get a cool million in the bank.

What’s the problem with pierced noses?

WTF farm vandals?

So is a pacifist necessarily a coward?

I know American soldiers don’t rape and murder routinely, but these torture scandals are the only thing I can think of that made me actually ashamed to be an American. Only briefly, though.

I like the way you throw the word ‘evil’ around. Mmm hmm.

And I’m not a fan of Kerry either, not by a long shot. And I’m not a Democrat. But your entire statement makes me go :dubious: .

It makes me sick that both at work and on this board people have to be told “Just because he did it doesn’t mean it’s all right for you to do it too.”
