Garrison Keillor is a Fool

An excerpt from “We’re Not in Lake Wobegon Anymore” by Garrison Keillor:

“The party of Lincoln and Liberty was transmogrified into the party of hairy-backed swamp developers and corporate shills, faith-based economists, fundamentalist bullies with Bibles, Christians of convenience, freelance racists, misanthropic frat boys, shrieking midgets of AM radio, tax cheats, nihilists in golf pants, brownshirts in pinstripes, sweatshop tycoons, hacks, fakirs, aggressive dorks, Lamborghini libertarians, people who believe Neil Armstrong's moonwalk was filmed in Roswell, New Mexico, little honkers out to diminish the rest of us, Newt's evil spawn and their Etch-A-Sketch president, a dull and rigid man suspicious of the free flow of information and of secular institutions, whose philosophy is a jumble of badly sutured body parts trying to walk.”

I take issue with at least one part of the above quote. I know of no conservative who believes that Neil Armstrong’s moonwalk was filmed in Roswell, New Mexico. In fact, the moonwalk was staged in Nevada at Area 51. Duh – Roswell is not nearly secure enough for so delicate an operation.

And to think, I could have named my blog "Sweatshop Tycoon". Damn.
