Garrison Keillor Fired From Minnesota Public Radio for Inappropriate Behavior...

As NPR notes, Keillor recently defended Al "Gropey" Franken.
On Tuesday, The Washington Post published an opinion column by Keillor in which he defended Sen. Al Franken, accused of forcibly kissing a radio host and groping another woman during a photo, against calls for his resignation. 
"On the flight home, in a spirit of low comedy, Al ogled Miss [Leeann] Tweeden and pretended to grab her and a picture was taken. Eleven years later, a talk show host in LA, she goes public, and there is talk of resignation. This is pure absurdity, and the atrocity it leads to is a code of public deadliness," Keillor wrote. "No kidding."
Keillor has always been a boring partisan prig and chide. While I concur late accusations are a problem for the accused, the Franken one was backed up with a photograph. I wish Leeann Tweeden brought it up sooner because then it is likely Franken would not have been a Senator in the first place. But has I have heard James Carville say, the best time to plant an oak tree is twenty years ago, but the second best time is today.

  1. Never saw the humor in him, much like David Letterman.

    Their sneering was palpable.
