Where were the examples? What is the difference? Who are you kidding? How original is that?

"And so when you see the Red Diaper Doper Baby lawyers lining up to apologize for them, and you see the Red Diaper Doper Babies lining up to defend them, you understand that we have internal enemies in this country that must be SORTED OUT, SEPARATED, and CONTROLLED before we are all dead. And yes, the time will come. I'll make that prediction. You may not believe, but the time will come that because of our need for self-preservation, we are going to stop the Red Diaper Doper Babies from killing us before we all die." (10/25/2002 Savage Nation radio broadcast, my emphasis.)

"[P]eople who know me, know that this is the real me. I don't pretend to be angry, and then when I turn off the radio I suddenly go out and have a drink with a Red Diaper Doper Baby. Believe me, if it were up to me, I would deport them." (9/12/2003 Savage Nation radio broadcast.)

Spare us the bovine cud
Your article on Michael Savage gave no new info. Everything you wrote has already been on the Web about him.

I am a middle-aged gay woman. I work in arts/entertainment and communications.

Savage is like every other celebrity in the following ways:

1) He needs adulation

2) He has people in his past who are jealous of him

3) He has people in his past that he wishes he had never met

4) He is a mature man and does not have the same views when he was a young man

5) He has views that run counter-culture OR at least are not run of the mill ... like Bob Dylan

6) He is opinionated

7) He's taken a stage name

Savage is unlike celebrities in the following ways:

1) He's not interested in being voted "Mr. Congeniality"

2) He's well read in many areas

3) He's educated WAY above average

4) He doesn't pretend to be "the common folk" to deflect his success and financial prosperity

5) He doesn't pander to the popular beliefs "du jour"

6) He's not atrophied in adolescent behavior and thinking
