Garrison Keillor

What we know so far is that the man is who he is. There is no larger, finer man inside Donald Trump trying to get out. Everyone who is paying attention knows this.

Flags flying at the Capitol, the US Marine Band, grey eminences in black coats, and He Who Is Smarter Than Those With Intelligence delivers 16 minutes of hooey and horse hockey about corrupt politicians betraying the people, and American carnage, and patriotism healing our division, though the division is mainly about Himself and though love of country does not necessarily make people stupid.

There might as well have been a 14-year-old boy at the lectern saying that he was in possession of the Golden Goblet that will drive the Gimlets from Fredonia and preserve the Sacred Marmite of Lord Numbskull and his Nimrods.
