Garrison Keillor funny? I'm not seeing it.

Is Garrison Keillor seriously considered a humorist? A funny man? He strikes me as a male version of Molly Ivins. I've never heard his show on NPR, and I'll take folks' word for it that's he's at least slightly humorous there -- but as a newspaper columnist he puts Hoover's finest to shame. Is he trying to make his radio show humor translate to his column? If he is, it doesn't. Work. In. The. Slightest.
