Republican convention defies satirizing

To the editor:

Someone needs to inform Mr. Garrison Kiellor that hyperbolic satire is no longer possible.

One can hardly distinguish his July 24 op-ed commentary from the discourse heard at the recent Republican nationally convention and appearing periodically in the Eagle's Letters to the Editor section. For those who did not get Keillor's joke, so not send your money for the DVD.
