Savage today, proclaimng that his "freedom of speech" speech was the greatest speech about the topic since Thomas Paine said "Give me liberty or give me death."
Did any of the blatherheads who follow this blow hard pick up on it?
Patrick Henry uttered that line, not Thomas Paine.
And this guy, like the Bowery Boys' Slip Mahoney acts like he knows what he's talking about. Most of the time, it's snake oil. Lies and snake oil.
His freedom of speech speech, by the way, was a pompous blather that he gave when he received a freedom of speech award from Talkers Magazine, the mag's lowpoint. It was given because Savage, unlike some conservatives, had negative things to say about George Bush. It was really a pathetic move by Talker's publisher Michael Harrison.
Savage, who said he would attend the awards dinner, opted out at the last minute, sending instead a video speech, that he now sells on his website, more snake oil.
This guy's greed has no bounds. One of his former producers was talking to him while he ate cole slaw at the back of the Marina Safeway, and threw away the container without paying.
When the producer asked about paying for it, Savage said: "Why should I? They'll never know."
I suspect that's the same attitude he has about the $1 million he raised for the Paul Revere Society, before it had its tax exemption pulled.
Jerry Brown...where is the money, and why have you done nothing about holding his former nonprofit accountable???
"They'll never know...."
In a New York Times profile out this Sunday, Rush Limbaugh had this to say about the Seweage Nation host: "He's not even in my rear view mirror."
Rush was even better on Bill O'Lielly: "Ted Baxter. He's Ted Baxter."
I love it.
O'Reilly, by the way, was the favorite host of Mercury News former television writer Mike Antonucci. Birds of a feather.
Just a third of July rant.
Thanks. and have a happy fourth.
