I've listen to Micheal Savage for many years and enjoy his show almost as much and as Rush. Hell, the first time I heard of Michael Savage was a book he wrote about healing children naturally.
Any Savage listeners here..
Hes a bit of a divider around here. To some hes a sage; others think hes a lunatic. Par for the course on punditry, Id say.
Occasionally I listen.
Savage doesn’t get much for props on Free Republic. As another poster pointed out, folks around here are divided about him.
If I had to guess, I’d say that only a small minority of Freepers listen to him regularly.
I personally think the guy is a troubled soul, who has occasional flashes of brilliance.
Savage and Rush are 2 completely different animals. I listen to both.
Rushs mission is to advance Reagan Conservatism.
Savages mission is to entertain Reagan Conservatives.
Savage is easily the most hilarious of all the talk hosts. But I dont think he himself is a Conservative at all. I think he is an old guard demonrat who is frustrated with the direction of the party a lot like Pat Caddell.
Also, Savage hates EVERYONE! except his little dog Teddy...
Savage does get credit for being the one who emphasized, “Borders, Language and Culture.”
I used to listen to him every weekday, back when KSFO AM was full of talk talent, one star after the other.
That changed, and after a few years I had enough of Mike’s pessimism.
So I listened to others. I still have great respect for Mike as an intellectual and a media entertainer.
I hear he can be a hassle to deal with when he doesn’t get his way. I liked hearing his personal stories when he was calm. When he was speaking of things he likes, such as foods, wines, and pets.
Mercurial, formidable, exhausting, needy, one to hold a grudge, hilarious and deliberately complex describes him.
So full of himself that he nauseates me. He’s a lunatic. “Flashes of brilliance”? Never glimpsed a single one.
When he's "on his meds" Michael Savage is OK. But Michael has mood swings and sometimes rambles on about boring topics. But we can all thank Michael for popularizing the phrase "borders, language, culture".
Based in California, Michael Savage warned about the growing problem of illegal immigration years and years before it was on anyone else's radar.
He was pretty good sometimes, but insufferable when he would talk about himself or other talk show people. Sometimes you could tell he would throw a fit for dramatic effect
My principal impression of him is that he screams a lot and I have too limited a tolerance for that to ascertain anything more.
I didn’t listen to that Sam Kinnison guy either.
That is the most brilliant one sentence summary of Michael Savage that I've ever seen. Perfect!
Isnt he also responsible for, liberalism is a mental disorder.?
I am a huge fan of Michael Savage, I’ve been listening for years and I try to listen daily but I’ve been so busy lately, I can only lusten to his downloads a few times a week. I think he’s fantastic - he’s been a life preserver for me too manty times to count.
You forgot hes the smartest man in radio with a degree in epidemiology, found 5 plants in Fiji, and my wife and I decided wed hate to have him as a patient but other then that he makes you think
I do enjoy his show. But hes up against Buck Sexton in my market and Im often listening to him as well for a change of pace.
Carnival barker con job of a “conservative”. A little vino might get him to speak honestly as to how easily some suckers are conned.
I do not doubt it has been a lucrative gig on his part. But the mouth is not the man he attempts his listeners to believe him to be. Still sometimes amusing to listen to his simple game/gag.
He is also credited as the originator of the phrase, "Liberalism is a mental disorder."
Like I said, the man does have flashes of brilliance.
Mike would probably call that ‘Lies and slander from the comfortably numb!”. I know other people like that in my own life.
"Liberalism is a mental disorder."
