Garrison Keillor channels 1543
Garrison Keillor, in the first ten minutes of today’s Prairie Home Companion, talked about Yom Kippur and said that while the Jews on his staff did not owe him atonement for any sins, Jews have to apologize to the Palestinian Arabs.
The audience laughed.
Subject to verification.
This week was the High Holy Day of Yom Kippur on Wednesday, and I should have said last week to all the Jews in my life that you have nothing to atone for to me, you know, I mean you’ve been wonderful people, and – and so none of you has any sins that you need to worry about as far as I’m concerned.
Rich, Gary, all you guys there – Eli and Ira at home, and Larry – and Mitch, and Suzy, and all of my friends. Nothing – nothing to atone for whatsoever. And I really feel bad that I didn’t say anything about it last week. I real feel bad, you know, I should have said something.
You’ve got stuff to make up to the Palestinians for. Your people have produced some really dreadful movies – some good movies, but you know, some real stinkers as well.
Garrison Keillor should move to Ashkelon and suffer rocket attacks. Apologize to the Arabs, Mr. Keillor?
Go kiss my Jewish ass.
