Back when I was a kid, Blogs were called 'imaginary friends' and were only slightly more pathetic.

Wow! Garrison Keillor said something funny!

I always hated Garrison Keillor, but have to admit that that's probably in large part due to not being able to turn on public television for several years without seeing him reading his own stuff. His 'down home' delivery and 'retarded cheesehead' cadence always made me want to shoot out my television.

This column, however, sums up the current state of the republican party PERFECTLY.

A taste: 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. Republicans: The No.1 reason the rest of the world thinks we're deaf, dumb and dangerous.

Here, here!

For the Yuppier, Starbucks-drinking, DVD player in the Volvo, soccer parents - Keillor is just perfect for them.
