Dear Garrison, Some years ago,

June 28, 2004 |

Dear Garrison,
Some years ago, in the comic strip Doonesbury, Gov. Ventura described you as a "malignant hemorrhoid". Do you consider this one of the highlights of your distinguished career?

Dear Ren,
I think that the phrase "malignant hemmorhoid" is a highly polished insult that shows quite a bit of thought on Mr. Ventura's part and I'm proud of him for putting out the effort. He drowsed through most of his governorship and any sign of wakefulness on his part is of interest to us Minnesotans. I wish him well, though. He appears in the trailer for the Jackie Chan version of Around The World In 80 Days and he's wearing a rather snazzy wig and sitting sulking in a tent. Too bad he wasted four years on politics.
