Nasty and Woebegone

Garrison Keillor suggests we could pay off the deficit by cutting off health care to Republicans.

It wouldn't be enough to cut Republicans off from health care. You'd have to confiscate the money they use to pay for it.

Take their money and let them die. Nice.
I stopped listening to Keillor years ago. An undertone of nastiness developed in his humor and got worse and worse. I gather that it's continued to grow.

I'm guessing that Keillor tried to get Will Rogers' old job and is increasingly embittered that the country turned him down.

Keillor is a cautionary example of what resentment can do if allowed to fester.
