Counterproductive Liberal Idiot of the Day: Garrison Keillor

Garrison Keillor, the “Prarie Home Companion” host and sleep-aid who is too smart for our own good, scores points for the right on the health care debate while trying to discredit and frighten Republicans:

When an entire major party has excused itself from meaningful debate and a thoughtful U.S. senator like Orrin Hatch no longer finds it important to make sense and an up-and-comer like Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty attacks the president for giving a speech telling schoolchildren to work hard in school and get good grades, one starts to wonder if the country wouldn’t be better off without them and if Republicans should be cut out of the health-care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer.

That’s the reason to oppose single-payer, bonehead! If the government is in charge of our health care, some arrogant, partisan government dipshit — possibly resembling Garrison Keillor — can wave a wand and cut off our health care for nothing more than that we disagreed with them politically and/or got in the way of whatever their power grab du jour was.

And Keillor is on the side of those complaining about private insurers dropping coverage on people?

At least now we know a government health care advocate who admits he’d kill grandma… as long as she’s a Republican.

Not nearly enough pro-Obamacare Democrats are asking themselves if they want their health care run by evil Republicans, because a day will come when the GOP is in charge of Congress and the White House again — and maybe they’ll decide that Garrison Keillor should be removed from the health care rolls because his terminal idiocy was a pre-existing condition.
