An Observation  

I just encountered this quotation, which I think says it pretty well:
"[Sarah Palin] lacks the guile to conceal her vacuity…"
      —Garrison Keillor in "Life is hard; we dig in, and we can spot deceit"

This would be a lot easier if this were a dictatorship...

and I was the dictator!

Um … yeah … er … I guess …

I stopped listening to Keillor after the Rolling Thunder incident. What an ass.

Hm. I am not familiar with the "Rolling Thunder incident." Care to fill me in?

There are thing about Keillor, and his egocentricity, that I'm not fond of, but ass or not I've got to admit that he's dead on with this observation. On the other hand, I will admit that I do rather pity the poor woman--she was thrust into the national spotlight without a clue and then left to dangle there.

"The Roar of Hollow Patriotism."

It is also mentioned in the "Controversies" section of his Wikipedia page.
