You Go, Garrison!

Posted By on Thu, Jun 8, 2006 at 3:14 PM

I've always liked Garrison Keillor, even if his radio show can be a little sleepy at times. But I like him even more after seeing his latest syndicated column. He discusses one of the Republicans' tactics when it comes to the upcoming election better than anyone I've seen so far:

I see by the papers that the Republicans want to make an issue of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in the congressional races this fall: Would you want a San Francisco woman to be speaker of the House? Will the lectern 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 the fear of g-a-y-s will pull it through in November.

Check out this short syndicated column; it's worth your time, even if you do have  to register (for free) with the Chicago Tribune.
