1942 - Reinhard Heydrich sez "Kill all the Jews."
2009 - Garrison Keillor sez "Kill all the Republicans."
Keillor likes to revel in his Nordic heritage, in fact it's his stock in trade and the foundation of whatever adenoidal, mouth-breathing humor he's able to mumble into a microphone. This guy has been living off the public weal for thirty-five years, you'd think common decency would at least make him grateful. Republicans usually have jobs (well, before Obama anyway) and, unlike many prominent Democrats, pay their taxes -- the source of Keillor prosperity.
Now he's staked a claim on another aspect of Nordic heritage.
