For all lefties tired of being accused of being a cabal of Eastern elitists, go no further than Garrison Keillor’s total evisceration of the Republican brownshirts in the socialist magazine In These Times.
Oh how I wish I could write this well. I wish John Kerry had someone this fresh and brave working for him. Keillor’s main point is that the left’s values are more authentically American than modern-day Enron Republicans.
“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.”
