Michael Savage blasts Ann Coulter and George Bush: We Finally Agree
The slimiest host on radio, Michael Savage, sounded like the genius his fans think he is today when he blasted Ann Coulter for her antisemitic rant on an MSNBC show (correction, CNBC..shows how much TV I don't watch).
Savage, who whines like a stuck pig when anyone criticizes him, said Jews should picket Coulter's publisher and boycott her new book, for her statements. I agree.
I think they are as bad as what Imus said (same with her use of the word "faggot" to describe John Edwards).
Here is some of the statement summary. You can see the video at www.mediamatters.org.
During the October 8 edition of CNBC's The Big Idea, host Donny Deutsch asked right-wing pundit Ann Coulter: "If you had your way ... and your dreams, which are genuine, came true ... what would this country look like?" Coulter responded, "It would look like New York City during the  Republican National Convention. In fact, that's what I think heaven is going to look like." She described the convention as follows: "People were happy. They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America." Deutsch then asked, "It would be better if we were all Christian?" to which Coulter responded, "Yes." Later in the discussion, Deutsch said to her: "[Y]ou said we should throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians," and Coulter again replied, "Yes." When pressed by Deutsch regarding whether she wanted to be like "the head of Iran" and "wipe Israel off the Earth," Coulter stated: "No, we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say. ... That's what Christianity is. We believe the Old Testament, but ours is more like Federal Express. You have to obey laws."
She goes on to say that she thinks Christians are "perfected Jews," something which demonstrates exactly why religion should be left out of the political playing field. There just isn't enough tolerance of other views by those in power. There never has been.
Just watch during this holiday season, as Coulter and allies such as Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity, launch their version of the Crusades, the "war against Christmas," in which they allege that people other than Christians, are out to attack and shut down the holiday, which is so pervasive in this country, it's inescapable for anyone of other faiths.
Savage, a Jew, said he would keep up his campaign against Coulter. I support him in that, but bet he won't mention it again.
And, as usual, he went over the line, saying she looked like a transvestite from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I don't know...she looks better than Allen Ginsburg, the gay poet who Savage propositioned in his early years, in letters on file at the Stanford University library.
Savage and his guest Pat Buchanan, also blasted George W. Bush, saying the president wasn't "smart enough" to wage the war in Iraq.
Ironic, that seven years ago when liberals said the same thing during time of war, they were blasted by Savage and Buchanan as traitors, hurting the war effort and putting the troops in danger...
What's the difference now, except that Savage and crew would never admit the liberals were right back then and these guys who put the ditz in pundits were so, so wrong.
