VANITY: Anyone listening to Savage? He started with the First Lady
Me ^ | 4 MAY 2005 | Me

Posted on 05/04/2005 3:19:04 PM PDT by rdb3

All right. Finished Medved, and on KSKY-660AM, Savage follows.

Get this: He immediately starts in with the First Lady, talked about how the "Bushes" played the Christian vote for suckers, and he gives compliments the first ladies of France and Germany over ours. Next, he whines about his being "blacklisted."

This mouthbreather is something else! Have at it. I had to share.

So you accuse her of "bestiality" jokes too? You just reprinted it and agreed with it.

Well, I just quoted the poster so it is easier to see what I was responding to, but I do think there is some hyperbole there. I'm not totally bent out over it, but it just doesn't sit too well with me on many levels.

I guess I haven't felt this way since I found out that the WWF (World Wrestling Federation, now WWE, but it was WWF then) was fixed and not legit when I was a kid. B-P That's the best way I can explain it.

But it makes them feel so morally superior and self righteous.
Nauseating.

Mrs. Bush was ill advised to make such remarks at her husband's expense.

So you two believe this was done without the express consent of President Bush and Rove? Unbelievably naive.

I don't need Michael Savage or you to tell me what Laura did. I heard her and drew my own conclusions. And no, I didn't hear any "bestiality" jokes as your fellow First Lady bashers are saying she told. So this is the insanity of the extremist wacko interpretation of her remarks.

I thought most of her routine was hysterical and done very well. The part about going with CR, LC, and KH to the Chippendales was funny, especially when she said she wouldn't even mention it except that Ruth BaderMeinhof and Sandra Day O'Connor saw them there....

OTOH I could have done without the image of W jerking off a horse. It's possible that you only saw the sound bites that didn't include that one, many didn't include it; but she did tell a little "funny" about how W got better about ranching--having originally tried to milk the horse. And it was male horse. You can call that anything you want to, but I could have done without that one. The rest was great IMO.

I don't get why the First Lady was branded as this shy, passive housewife; I've always seen her as a very intelligent, modern woman who reminds me alot of my mother.

I do agree she is all the things you said but I just find it "acting out of character" so to speak.

RE: Hope he does become a Christian someday.

No guarantee but it would likely help him drop the booze during working if not becoming a teetotaler. That would make him immensely more effective. He's got a good brain but a messed up lifestyle.

I honestly only listen to him if I'm caught in commuter traffic and my other conservative talk show is running five minutes of commercials.

Mostly what I hear is more painful than the commercials I'm avoiding.

He's rude to callers who don't worship his every word. He wants to nuke everyone. He hates Bush. It's just painful.

Why, when you know this guy is over the top, do you folks listen to him.

My take on this whole thing, yes, the Bush team played the conservative christians like a fiddle just like Jesse Jackson does the blacks. The Bush's needed every vote they could get. If they (conservative christians) aren't smart enought to figure that out, then that's their fault. But what's wrong with that. Connservative Christians got what they wanted.

Yes, Mrs. Bush said some edgy things and depending on ones tasts,and they don't have to be prudes, some of it wasn't in the best taste, but I doubt she's going to hell and I don't think she's a slut. And yes, it was a little of a let down, but then again, it's her life and what she's thought of by her public. If she wants the world to envision her husband "milking" a male horse, then everyone close your eyes and picture W and Mr. Ed with W's hand desperately trying to get milk from Ed on a special part of Ed's body. See, it's no big deal. It's a known joke in Texas told around the camp fire when city slickers come to town. And it's what she had you envision. Happy?

Yes, there are people who's panties are in a wad, but there are also just as many "no matter what they did" defenders. Get real people! Meet somewhere in the middle. Ain't the end of the world.

I agree. I never miss Savage. There are plenty of times when he gets a "bit" over-inflated, which can be a bit off-turning, but I think he is more in touch with the people than some like to admit.

I used to listen to Chuck Harder too and really liked him. His economic views never ruffled my feathers because I've lived my whole life in an area peopled with "Reagan Democrats." Some of us just figured out the Democrats left us long before Reagan was elected.

I think I found Savage in the late 1990's, listened to him, then lost him until 2000 when I was tuning around the dial as I was delivering pizzas at the time so he was my co-pilot during that time. B-) He just basically says things I agree with a lot, now I don't agree with him on everything, but I think he is on the mark a lot more than he is not. I guess him being from working class roots and still showing it is an added plus to me.

I'm the same way, I live in Pittsburgh so I do have some "Pittsburgh Democrat" in me, basically those who did vote for Reagan mainly on moral issues. Harder was a real gem on the radio, in a way, he was like Michael Savage a lot but you could say if they got together, Harder would be "good cop" to Savage's "bad cop." Harder is still on satellite, his "For The People" is on hard times last I heard. I loved how Harder got together with R.L Drake radio and sold an American made shortwave radio on the air, I think he called it "The People's radio" or something like that, it's been a while. Chuck Harder is right on too.

I also haven't found his comments about Laura to be a big deal. She is the first "lady" after all.

I agree with Savage's general point: If she wants to make jokes she should make jokes at her/our enemies expense not The President of the United States.

lol. What you see in public is Michael's "public" personnae. I think what has happened to Michael over the years? He's tried very hard to reach out to liberals in the SF Bay; It simply cannot be done. Their synapsese are kilned closed. And he gets angry in seeing what was once a beautiful place to live: The SF Bay Area -- turned into what it is now; a mental pigstye. That's what I think so much of his more lately reactions are coming from.

Yep, ol Hard Luck Charlie sold all those shortwaves and guess what, he's no longer on shortwave radio. And he had his second network "stolen" from him.

actually, Chuck is a lot like Jim R in terms of personality. But Chuck lost credibility during the Y2K thing when he sold all those windup radios, freeze dried food and other Y2K ditties that, well, were just not needed.

Well, I listen to Savage at least once a week.

He amuses me with his tirades and I like someone with strong opinions. Do I agree with him? A lot of the time but he is abrasive and doesn't understand that you have to be diplomatic at times in politics.

He is in perpetual meltdown, or at least a feigned perpetual meltdown. He should cut some slack for folks sometimes but hell, he is Savage.

As for him saying this crap. WTF? He is tightly wound, eh?

Savage is a bitter, angry man. Sometimes it's funny. Sometimes, it's just irritating. Kind of depends on whether I agree with him or not.

In any case, he's not the guy you send out to convert the lunatics.

Try Neal Boortz (if you can get him in your area). Like Michael Savage, he'll say what he feels, and he shows no mercy to liberals. Unlike Savage, he doesn't act like a raving lunatic, but he's brutal with the facts and unafraid to make fun of ridiculous positions, and his arguments are usually very well thought-out. If you like or can stand his politics (he's a pro-Iraq war/strong national defense/tough on illegal immigration Libertarian--meaning he is often socially liberal, but he tends to avoid these issues), he's great to listen to.

Also, if the Libertarian Party wanted to have any success, they'd elect him their chair.

I was flipping back and forth between Savage and Hannity. I heard Doug from Upland on Hannity. Hannity wanted to know if we FReepers are still mad at him and why conservatives eat their own.

The Bay area is the most beautiful place to live in and it's maddening to see how it has changed in the last 30 years.

Still, his radio show is over the top for me most of the time. He certainly isn't converting liberals with it.

Every one of these guys has a place.

Rush made me realize, years and years ago, that I was actually a conservative— which came as a quite a shock. I think Laura Ingrahm fits in this category as well. And on his good days...the much maligned O'Reilly.

Guys like Hannity are the cheerleaders. Once you've "joined the team" you stand around for awhile navel gazing and pointing out to everybody else how cool the team is. He does a great job in that role. Eventually it gets tedious.

Once you've been here awhile, guys like Prager, Medved, Boortz and Hewitt are around to help you sharpen your understanding and ability to debate things rationally.

Then, when things aren't going your way...Savage is the angry stage.

At least, that's how it's been for me. Haven't gotten permanently to the Savage stage yet. Kind of hoping I never do.

I once loved the Bay Area. No more. Yes, 30 years (more like 40) -- it's a beautiful place to visit; but very hard to live there.

Do you remember Michael in the beginning of his "broadcasting"? He could galvanize people, majorly. I don't think he's trying to convert liberals, anymore. I observed his change -- after the Pat Buchanan "flip". I think Michael took Pat's "flip" very hard.

A couple of years ago. They also built out the reserved seating section into what was the lower part of the grass seating. That was because they weren't getting the big acts with the small reserved seating section.

Now they've added much more seating, still have a small grass section, and built a whole food court off to the side.

No, I don't think I'd ever heard Savage prior to about five years ago, and even then it was rarely. His show was tape delayed in my region, and I'd only hear it if was driving home very late at night. It's not now. It comes on at 5 pm.

He does do some good stuff. His prank of having callers reading out loud from his book in a coffee house was funny.

But the show seems needlessly abrasive to me and I just don't enjoy it. It's more emotion than intellect and that's something I don't associate with conservatism to much extent.

Maybe the reason we both liked Harder is we're both from the same area and talking about the same people! I used to listen to him on a dinky little station in Weirton where all the people who worked in the steel mill listened. They are the same union people who endorsed Pat Buchanan (not the USW, the ISW) when he ran for President. I didn't know Harder was still on the radio. Last I heard he had bought a station in Atlanta, and had gotten back his studio in ? Springs, FL. I know the USW beat him on the deal they made that was to silence him for the election and he never recovered from it. Clinton couldn't afford to have him talking to all those blue collar people and opening their eyes. That was a long time ago. I think you're correct. What I do like about Savage is what appealed to me about Harder, but I do have problems with Savage's ego and his anger.

I think Eason was ready to retire anyway, considering that he was broadcasting from a studio in his home in Georgia at the time. Metcalf got bumped for Dr. Laura, if I recall. Limbaugh was on KNBR at the time, and was moving to KSFO after years of being pre-empted for Giants games. Dr. Laura came on at noon (bumping Metcalf), Eason was on for one hour from 3 to 4, then Savage. Eason and Savage were feuding at the time, so the show hand-offs were testy sometimes.
