Dan Savage breaks down the hypocrisy in Keillor’s latest column on Salon.com:
What an asshole. Asshole, asshole, asshole. What Keillor wrote today on Salon is every bit as offensive as Ann Coulterâ€™s â€œfaggotâ€ joke about John Edwards and relies on the same set of cultural prejudices.
It’s interesting to note, as Savage does, that Keillor watched Savage’s performance in Minneapolis that was part of the This American Life taping where Savage mentioned how much it upsets him when gays are portrayed on TV in a few common stereotypes. And Keillor used some of those SAME stereotypes to insult gays in his column only a few weeks later. What’s up with that?
