Homegrown Democrat: A Few Plain Thoughts from the Heart of America

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Garrison Keillor

Narrated By: Garrison Keillor

Date: August 2004

Duration: 4 hours 32 minutes

Summary:

In this thoughtful, deeply personal work, one of the nation's best-loved voices takes the plunge into politics and comes up with a book that has had all of America talking. Here, with great heart, supple wit, and a dash of anger, Garrison Keillor describes the simple democratic values-the Golden Rule, the obligation to defend the weak against the powerful, and others-that define his hard-working Midwestern neighbors and that today's Republicans seem determined to subvert.

A reminiscence, a political tract, and a humorous meditation, Homegrown Democrat is an entertaining, refreshing addition to today's rancorous political debate.

    I feel at a loss as to how to review this book. Keillor is extremely outspoken in his hatred of the Bush administration. And, perhaps a bit over the top in his praise of Democrats. I am a Democrat. I think that history will show that George W. Bush was the worst president that the US has ever had, but even I felt a bit uncomfortable with some of Keillor's over the top rhetoric. Perhaps I've been too diplomatic for too long. Also, if you are expecting the humor of his Lake Woebegone stories, you will be disappointed. So, if you choose this book, just be forewarned that it is filled with disdain for the current administration and credits the Democratic party with every positive aspect of our lives.
