Yes, Right-Wingers In Media Can Go Too Far
Michael Savage was fired from MSNBC today
! Time to do a happy dance.
Seems he got a little too
arrogant. Check out the exchange that deservedly lost him his plum little job:
Savage was taking viewer phone calls about airline horror stories, and a male caller began talking about smoking in the bathroom.
"Half an hour into the flight, I need to suggest that Don and Mike take your ..." the caller said, before he was cut off and his words became unintelligible.
"So you're one of those sodomists. Are you a sodomite?" Savage asked.
The caller replied: "Yes, I am."
"Oh, you're one of the sodomites," Savage said. "You should only get AIDS and die, you pig. How's that? Why don't you see if you can sue me, you pig. You got nothing better than to put me down, you piece of garbage. You have got nothing to do today, go eat a sausage and choke on it."
He asked for another phone caller who "didn't have a nice night in the bathhouse who's angry at me today."
These bums "mean nothing to me," he said.
Of course, the fact that his ratings sucked might have made it an easier decision for his bosses. But one less media outlet for a piece of Nazi garbage like Savage is A-OK in my book. It reaffirms my faith in humanity by a tiny, tiny degree.
What am I saying? I never had
any faith in humanity.
