Savage helped pull Obama over the top by its bashing of Sarah Palin.

Savage helped give democrats a super majority so they could implement socialist Obamacare on us( it bashed Republican congress and Hastert etc. constantly).

Savage donated $5000, the max to ultra liberal democrat governor of california jerry brown.

A long time communist , berkely graduate, san fran cisco liberal calls itself a conservative to make millions off of gullible listeners and at the same time helped advance socialism. Even its name is fake , real name Michael Weiner.

this demon deserves to rot in hell

No problem, our local station replaced him with the Great One. Unfortunately, they replaced Beck with Geraldo.

I stumbled across Savage shortly after 9/11 and was very happy to have found him. I was dedicated to listening for a couple of years but eventually moved on. He could be great, but he could also get derailed into some pretty esoteric subjects.

Weiner-Savage talks about Limbaugh, Beck, and Hannity:

Weiner-Savage is a flaming a*****e.

Do you think Glenn Beck is a “hemorrhoid with eyes”?
Do you think Rush Limbaugh steals material from Weiner-Savage?
Do you think Sean Hannity is a “wallbanger”?

But do watch the video, the picture of Weiner-Savage dressed up like a pimp is priceless.

I am well aware of Savage’s hostility toward fellow talkers. It makes me cringe.

We all have weaknesses, and we all behave badly at times. I wish he were not so mean in that way, but his meanness does not excuse others who want to broadcast their hatred for him.

This is a column directed at the listeners who like him despite his flaws, and when I wrote it, I knew it would bring out those who despise him, who can’t resist inserting their hatred in the comments, which does no one any good, and that’s too bad, as always.

Savage is the one who can not resist inserting his bizarre fixation on other radio hosts into his show. His “meanness” does excuse others from expressing their dislike. You seem to want to excuse his bad behavior while bashing others for what you perceive to be the same behavior.

“our local station replaced . . Beck with Geraldo”

And ours replaced Gallagher with Whore Aldo. I have no idea what Gallagher’s local ratings were, but I can’t believe that Whore Aldo will have more than 5 or 6 listeners.

I found Gallagher to be tiresome and pretty much a waste. With that outrage / whiney thing going on and just the timbre of his voice, it was nails on a chalkboard.

I’ve heard Geraldo a couple of times and he’s not bad.

I’m not “bashing” anyone, nor am I excusing Savage’s hostility toward other hosts (see my previous comment).

This column is for Savage listeners who are wondering where he is and are feeling bummed out like I am. That’s why I wrote it.

I point out the fact that any mention of Savage ALWAYS brings out the Savage haters, and I’m right.

OK, but then you say:

That sure sounds like "bashing" to me.

And even worse, you said:

You Savage haters just can’t help yourself, can you?

That's more "bashing". You can't have it both ways.

If you really want to keep out dissenting opinions, perhaps you should consider restricting yourself to your blog where you have full control over reader comments, rather than posting here on an open forum.

None of what I said is “bashing.” Telling the truth is not “bashing.” If I wanted to “bash,” there are some truly rude, insulting things I could say.

It DOES seem that Savage haters (an apt, truthful description) can’t resist posting their hatred of him on columns that have nothing to do with their hatred, and where their hateful input adds nothing useful to the conversation. There is nothing but truth in that statement.

I beg to differ. Implying that my “hatred” is so intense that it controls my rational thought processes IS bashing, in my opinion. If you were right about that, you would find my hateful comments on EVERY Savage thread. You’re welcome to go looking, but I doubt you will find very much.

We’ll just have to agree to disagree on that point.

I am sorry though, I must have missed the paragraph in the Free Republic Terms of Service where it says that one must add something useful to a conversation as defined by the person who initiated the thread. I wasn’t aware that was the case.

But rest assured, I will never again comment on one of your threads, and I will certainly never give your blog another hit.

“Warning: The Michael Savage Show contains adult language, adult content, psychological nudity. Listener discretion is advised.”

IIRC that was contributed to Savage by Jack Swanson, Melanie Morgan's husband and a former executive at KSFO, Savage's home station for years early in his career.

You Savage haters just can’t help yourself, can you?

Personally I don't hate savage and in fact enjoyed listening to him until his ego and envy got the better of him and he started bashing the other conservative talk show hosts in order to get a response out of them and get his name mentioned on their programs.

To their credit, they just ignored him and I suspect that deepend Savage's hatred of them.

He became nothing but a loud mouth, self obsorbed hack who made the mistake of thinking that the more outrageous he became, the more popular he might become..........EPIC FAIL!

In fact, he has done a disservice to the conservative movement and became a posterboy for the liberals who point to him as being the norm when they criticize talk radio........

I've loved radio since the early 1940s. IMO Savage has done as much for modern talk radio (radio after the "Fairness Doctrine") as any others -- more than them all when it comes to proving that no longer did conservatives have to kowtow and slink away trying to 'splain that they were not all those evil things that liberals were screaming at them. Conservatives could scream back louder and with overwhelming nastiness.

To be fair to Joe Pyne there was a lot of that good ol' overwhelming nastiness in Pyne -- "Go gargle with razor blades!".. but I have never heard Savage or Levin speak of Pyne.

After the environment of the 1960s, 70s and 80s conservative needed to start fighting back.. and Savage said that that is exactly what he was doing. Now others have caught on. Excellent!

I've had my differences with Savage's ways but he's a talk show host with guts,

Iran gets in on the "Michael Savage" action

What other talk show host can boast that?

The nation ID'd as the number one promoter of Islamist terrorism gets in on the hate "Michael Savage" action.

While other talk show hosts offer tepid on-air remarks from time to time, for all his faults, Savage took it to 'em!

Oh, so Hannity was "Wall-Banger". I never knew who he was talking about except I knew the "Golfer" was Rush. I had never heard a talk radio guy attack other conservative on-air personalities till Savage and I have to say it drove me crazy. I also hated it when he would go on and on about some hideous thing the Democrats were doing and then say, "And the Republicans are no better!". Huh?

The show where he spoke at length about people who fart in elevators, ended my Savage listening.

This guy was briefly on the air in the Philadelphia area a few years back. I do remember stumbling across his show a few times and was not impressed. Anyway, if what I read here about him trashing Sara Palin is accurate, then good bye to the scumbag. Irrational hatred for Palin is always a clear tipoff that somebody is, deep down, a scumbag Democrat.

RE: if what I read here about him trashing Sara Palin is accurate . . . .

It started -- and ended -- the day she was announced as the VP candidate. He started down the alley of trailer park jokes issuing some pretty nasty comments about her and her family.

It ended immediately -- or perhaps by the next day -- as a great clamor arose over the Nation. We listeners let be known that we have zero tolerance for that nonsense.

He criticizes her but without the defamation -- and like Imus who absolutely hates her -- always interjects "she's a good woman but she's just not qualified." Imus is a bit more blunt: "she's a good woman but she's dumb and she's a dope." Imus has conservative women friends in the media but he seems to hate conservative women in politics.. he despises Michele Bachmann. (Yes I know that's his shtick but when he's serious he lets the listeners know.)

At the risk of using language that borders on hypocrisy, I’ll try to use a little culture.

I must admit I too have found Savage’s bashing of colleagues distasteful at times. Since he is so smart in other areas, I wish he’d find alternate ways to say the same thing. It used to bother me a lot, then I thought about something he frequents — buffets! (He likes Indian, I prefer Chinese and salad bars.)

Rather than letting it bother me, I decided to treat Savage’s show as a smorgasbord. He does present many ideas worth considering. When he does get into those tirades, that’s like a dish that’s offered that I’ll just ignore.

I do credit Savage with teaching me how to fish, or better stated how to cook fish. For years I always burned fish fillets and couldn’t get them to taste good. Savage had a segment where he said he had the same problem until he learned to cook it on one side, flip it, and THEN add the spices on top.

So that’s what I kept tuning in. I many times didn’t know what to expect since it wasn’t all politics all the time. It was really welcome at his particular time slot, as the day drew to a close and I wondered if I could make anything of the remaining evening, or just opt for sleep as he said he often does. Or make meatballs.

I think he’s going to miss terrestrial radio. We do have all these devices that you can connect with, yet AM and FM radios are many times easier to simply turn on. I don’t think it’s the same level of intimacy like when you’re working in the garage or out running errands and have the radio running in the background. Moreover, streams generally don’t play local ads; I do like knowing which advertisers support the programs I like.

I many times felt I was all alone in my thoughts of what’s happening lately, esp. in this country until Savage echoed or further refined in his unique style what I was thinking. I’m still somewhat lost, it’s strange not hearing his voice at 3:06PM Pacific.

Oh, well, like Savage says, “That’s all.”

I believe I covered that in another post (no. 21).

And with this post, my involvement with this useless thread is over. The "golfer" is on, and I will gladly listen to all his "stolen" Savage material without all of Savage's viciousness.

It's clear why he chose "Savage" as his pseudonym.
