Radio host Michael Savage tainted the air waves with his repulsively closed mind Monday. A caller phoned in to ask why Savage refused to attend last week’s Republican debates. Savage first explains the bad blood between him and the news channel – something about Whoopi Goldberg, Al Sharpton and Joy Behar plotting a character attack on Larry King Live – and how Ted Turner set up a “bear trap” for conservatives.
From there, Savage launches a verbal assault on “Anderson Blooper” and Keith Kerr, the retired brigadier who asked the presidential candidates about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. And, from what we gather, Savage isn’t so keen on Kerr:
I don’t care about this old queen, frankly. He disgusts me to make — my flesh crawls from the old queen. That was a general? Now you wonder why we’re still in Iraq five years later. General — with General Keith Kerr, you know why we’re still in Iraq five years later. That’s all. He wasn’t just racking up cue balls at the pool table. I’m sick of it! I’m sick of the whole country, it’s like Rome! It’s melting down like Rome!
Christ, won’t someone feed Savage to the lions, already?
The 65-year old commentator also commented on Cooper’s sexuality: “Why don’t you enlist, Anderson? I’m not saying you’re gay. But you certainly could enlist if you’re so interested in “do ask do tell.””
