On These Two

If selective outrage was an art-form, these two fellows would be Chopin and Mussorgsky.

Two of the greatest douchebags ever. Hate them all.

I happen to be a big Michael Savage fan though, but unlike the other conservative talk show hosts, he doesn't just kiss the GOP's ass and goes after them too and predicted that Romney would lose from the beginning. In addition to that, I enjoy his stories, life advice, recipes, etc. He's the exception for me.

Roberto, check this economist out. He's a fellow at the Cato Institute and does a whole lot of solid analysis on TV (he's on with Larry Kudlow a lot) - I think that you'll like him a lot.

I remember Michael Weiner ("Savage" is just a nickname of some kind) going off about how autism doesn't really exist. As someone who knows several families of children with autism, I can't believe someone would say something so flat-out wrong.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know what Weiner said is wrong, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to be in a position like Weiner's and know you can't just make up stuff for the hell of it and insist that it is true. It's pretty despicable that Mr. Weiner would just lie for fun, which makes him one of the worst radio commentators ever.

(And yes, this is similar to my criticism of Bill Maher when he said that handicapped children weren't people and should be treated like dogs)

Dmarks, there was actually a full clip where he was explaining how he thought the disease was being overly misdiagnosed. He never said the disease didn't exist.

"I have to repeat I guess in every breath. There is true autism. The children are suffering and deserve the care that they are entitled to."

This should clear up the whole misconception of what he was trying to say.
