I have posted many times in the past that what most of the Savage critics were missing was that 'Michael Savage' is a fictional character, played by a man named Michael Weiner. I never really doubted that there was a basic sincerity on his part, but it was clearly exaggerated and hammed up.
I have also pointed out (upon many deaf ears) is that if you listen closely, after some of his signature rants, he chuckles and laughs a bit, breaking character.
This stuff should be clear to people paying attention, and yes, I like to think I 'get it' and have for a while! SAVAGE!!!!!
Honestly, after Mark Steyn knocked it out of the park subbing for Rush back in August, I'm waiting for a radio syndicator to give him a 2-hour window, a couple of hundred stations, and some publicity to give him a real launch. He'll make a fortune and immediately become one of the top 5 radio hosts.
More than a few conservative radio personalities have to be looking over their shoulder after that day!

You have officially caused me to be depressed. I missed STEYN subbing for Rush! I am such a Steyn groupie.
That good, eh?
That is why Steyn won't get a show. To many other guys would be out of business, and they know it.
