All is not well in the world of talk radio today, as an internecine spat is being brewed up by right-wing host Michael Savage, who today spent a portion of his airtime criticizing fellow conservative talker Rush Limbaugh. Oh noes! What has come between the two men? England, it seems! Well, according to Media Matters, here's what Savage said:
SAVAGE: And yet here in America, I've had some people come to my aid. They see the bigger picture. They're not like [Bill] O'Reilly; they're not like Limbaugh, who's the biggest disappointment of all. Limbaugh has turned out to be the biggest phony of all of them, all of them. Amongst all of them, he is the biggest fraud. Rush Limbaugh is a fraud. When he was accused of the drug usage, I supported him. But that man is a one-way street. It's all about him. He's in it for nobody but himself.
I guess that Limbaugh wronged Savage by not coming to his aid when Great Britain's Home Secretary Jacqui Smith barred Savage from entering the United Kingdom, along with white supremacist Stephen "Don" Black and anti-gay gadabout Fred Phelps. In Limbaugh's defense, I find it hard to believe that Savage actually wanted to go to England. I mean, wouldn't all the socialized heath care anger him? Wouldn't he be revolted at the thought of "bangers and mash," which Savage would inevitably misconstrue? Anyway, I'm guessing it was news to Limbaugh that Savage actually wanted to piss off to dear old Blighty, but there you have it.
In another month or so, these two will be fighting over what remains of the ad revenue generated by the auto industry. So, look forward to that!
