Garrison Keillor is retiring from “A Prairie Home Companion”; time to look at his political satire.

Thanks Lona! I loved this one about Trump: "It’s like psychoanalyzing a toasted bagel." How on earth does this work out - LOL???

Garrison Keillor is a much beloved figure. Heard his program many a Saturday evening, and I will miss this sweet, kind, funny and caring gentleman who shares stories on his “A Prairie Home Companion” radio shows.

"Well, it's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, Minnesota, my hometown, out there on the edge of the prairie." GK

Thank you, Lona for this great post.

How nice to come home from coffee with a dear friend and find this waiting! Love me some Garrison Keillor. I own (on casette tape, OK, I've had it for a while) his "Songs of the Cat," featuring himself and Frederica von Stade, and be sure there is some politics even here ("There one was a Union Cat/Who on the table sat/At union talks, and for a box/She often used the boss's hat...")

It was Gerrison Keillor who said what to me is the only sensible thing ever said about voting against one's own interests, and that is that voting against one's own interests may be an ethical imperative, which is why he was brought up a Democrat.

He will certainly be missed. Thank you for this loving tribute.

I had classes in the studio he used to broadcast his first show and started my collection and have followed ever since. Thanks Lona.

APHC simply will not be the same without Keillor. Loved his roast of Trump - that guy scares me. I wonder if the GOP will find a way around him.

A lovely person - I do so like that kind of humor. "Vulgarity on wheels" certainly describes Trump.
Thank you, Lona, for a good smile this morning!

Thanks, Lona and no, he's not done with his particular type of satire, he's just moving on to a bigger audience...the rest of America. :)

A great roast indeed! But, I will not eat of it, I'd rather have green eggs and ham!

Sorry to hear of his siezures. I have listened, on occasion, to be honest, to his show on the radio while driving.

I occurs to me that the "Lake Wobegon Effect," is alive and well in the meme about the U.S. being "Exceptional!" Well, okay, maybe we are "Exceptional," when one considers the way Rumpy has been able to, allowed to, become the foremost blatherer of nonsense (literally, if you actually pay attention to the sentences he tries to construct) in the country.

I loved Garrison's take down of the Orange Clown, but he messed up, when he presented the idea that some of his GOP opponents had spoken in a reasonable, or rational manner! This clown car was representative of some of the saddest bozos the GOPigs have put out there in a long time, with the possible exception of Paul Ryan, who would have fit right in!
Joanne, I love that quote from him, have copied into my little, growing trove of good quotes.

Thank you all.

After Jon Stewart another satirist who skewers Drumpf so well retires. But although their humor may not be carried on the airwaves on a regular basis any longer, I'm sure we haven't heard the last of them on the presumptive Republican candidate.
