The Savage Nation

After many years of listening to Talk Radio, right and left, the conclusion I have reached is that Michael Savage is the most interesting, entertaining, least pretentious of the lot. Rush Limbaugh is brilliant but beats the horse to death hour by hour attempting to fill up the time. Sean Hannity is the worst when it comes to an exchange of ideas often shouting down his callers in a vain attempt to replace substance with noise.

Neal Boorts is probably the most reasonable, even he brooks no foolishness, and will at least listen to differing views. Michael Savage is in another class altogether. He does not mince words, is politically completely incorrect and often hilarious in his repartee'.

Liberal hosts a la Alan Combs and Alan Handleman are way too earnest and obvious in their attempts to out right the right on the left. Al Franken ( what is it with Al's?) is merely pedantic and lacks a sense of humor; very strange in a comedian.

Perhaps that lack of a sense of humor, absolute on the left, is the main reason for the success of the right leaning shows when compared to the ratings for the lefties. Even Sean Hannity has a sense of humor, though it can be difficult to detect at times. The apparent success formula in Talk Radio is to realize that all human beings are pretty much ridiculous and that life spans are short.

The obvious fear on the left of the right to free speech makes it clear that they are way to concerned with living forever. Why else the calorie police, the seat belt police, et al? In the minds of leftists there can be only one way to think: their way. All other thought must be stifled. Even Al Gore recently said that with regard to Global Warming the "Fair and Balanced" approach to discussion must be abandoned. He meant it.

As proponents of the evolution theory the left is self-contradictory. If evolution is true then survival of the fittest and natural selection obviate any need for regulation of human behavior with regard to choice of food, vices such as drinking and smoking, seat belt use etc. Let the worst of us die by our own choice. The joy of living is just that: living.
