America's most fiery conservative talk show host backing liberal Jerry Brown for California's attorney general?
Yes, it's true.
Michael Savage, the nation's third most listened-to radio host (and 4th most influential host according to NewsMax's Top 25 List), confirmed that he recently donated $5,600 -- the maxium allowable -- to Brown's campaign.
Brown won the Democratic Party nod and is facing Republican State Sen. Chuck Poochigian of Fresno, Calif.
"What can I say?," Savage told the San Francisco Chronicle. "I think he'd make a great attorney general compared to the other guy. By the way, who is the other guy?"
Republican Poochigian is currently a State Senator and former assemblyman who has served 12 years in Sacramento.
"You have to make choices in an imperfect world," Savage said. "And this, this Machugian guy (sic). I never heard of him. I don't even know who he is."
"Why bet on a horse that isn't going to win? Why throw your money into the garbage?"
Savage said he respects Brown's decision to start the Oakland military academy and his experience as a politician, regardless of his very liberal past.
Brown, who had the nickname "Governor Moonbeam," served as California's governor for two terms beginning in 1974. A former Democratic presidential candidate, he ran for mayor of Oakland, Calif. in 1998 and won.
"People change. He changed. He has experience," Savage told the Chronicle. . . . "He's moved to the center, which is what this socialist state needs."
As for the conservative Poochigian's campaign, they are not so angry with the Savage defection, bragging that their candidate has the backing of Bo Derek.

Why give the maximum contribution to someone you're sure is going to win anyway?
This is bizarre.
All you savage freaks.....SUCKERS!!
He's spent Way too much time in san fran sicko
Poochigian for Attorney General
This guy is no conservative. He has demonstrated that over and over and equally often that he is just a lunatic aired to discredit and undermine conservatives.
I will not listen to hiom anymore after he lambasted "Flags of our Fathers." He missed the whole point of the book/movie.
So...Savage is just an act, a parody of the ultra conservative. I guess I'm not too surprised. Supporting Brown for anything automatically disqualifies you to be a conservative and Weiner's explanation for doing so is pathetically weak...unless you're not a conservative.
Savage has said that he's an independent, not a strict Republican. So, I'm not surprised.
>>>As for the conservative Poochigian's campaign, they are not so angry with the Savage defection, bragging that their candidate has the backing of Bo Derek.>>>
Well, since Bo Derek is voting for him!!!
Yeah, one of JB's priorities as AG is going to be GLOBAL WARMING.
That's just the issue I want the state's primary law enforcement representative to pursue.
After all, there is no actual CRIME in California, is there?
I guess Savage thinks that he would rather have what he considers to be a moderate who can win, than a conservative that he thinks can't win.
Ah, right meets left on the back side.
Why donate anything at all? And why support a known radical leftist over an unknown?
Savage is a fraud, a rank opportunist, and most likely a leftist plant, set up to make us look bad. Oh, I forgot to mention he's also a total ^sshole.
I hate to say "I told you so!," but I had this guy pegged as a fraud years ago.
That doesn't make any sense at all. Why give money to a guy you're sure is going to win anyway? Isn't that a total waste?
