Savage is not that smart.
Though it is wiki, you might benefit from reading up on Doc S. A complicated man, but no dummy.
“In total, Savage has written 29 books. Under the name Michael Savage he has written eight books, including a #1 New York Times bestseller and three further books which made the best seller list. He has also reprinted two books with the name Savage, Reducing the Risk of Alzheimer’s and Healing Children Naturally.
His 1980 book Weiners’s Herbal: The Guide to Herb Medicine advocated the medical benefits of marijuana.
Savage’s recent books are political in nature and published by WND Books, a partnership between the conservative website WorldNetDaily and Thomas Nelson, a publisher of Christian books.
In 1991, Savage self-published The Death of the White Male, an argument against affirmative action. In the book, Savage, calls affirmative action “reverse discrimination”, and demonstrates his emerging philosophy. This eventually led to his starting the Paul Revere Society and he continues to sell the book to raise money for this group.”
