Breathless Mahoney: Thanks for calling. I was beginning to wonder what a girl had to do to get arrested.
I think he is being satirical. He sounds just like he does on Prairie Home Companion.
I definitely agree that he is trying for satire, but the fact that he is poking fun at those of us who were offended by his "let's let war crimes be bygones", and taking a really patronizing attitude in order to do so, just rankles. Maybe I've become an old coot (okay, there's no "maybe" about that!) but I lose my sense of humor when it comes to torture.Good post on the filibuster today, btw, Mike.
Sometimes Keillor's humor is so dry that it's barely perceptible. But still, it's humor.BTW, why doesn't someone subpoena Cheney? If the guy wants to talk so badly, he should be given the opportunity to do so under oath.
If his column was/is satire, it is of the most subtle kind.
