Much to the chagrin of leftist nut cases in San Francisco and all across the great nation of America, conservative superstar Michael Savage has been voted among the most influential political pundits in America.
This good news for the good doctor comes from the London Telegraph, from across the great pond.
In notching this spectacular victory over mainstream media, Dr. Savage out ranked the likes of Peggy Noonan, James Carville, Tony Snow, Newt Gingrich, Juan Williams and Bill Kristol, among many others.
In acknowledging Dr. Savage as the 25th most influential, the limey rag included this biographical sketch:
“With ten million listeners, he is the third most listened-to right-wing talk show host, but directs most of his brash, passionate ire at cultural rather than political targets.
“A liberal in the 1960s, by the mid 2000s, a brief stint on MSNBC ended when he wished the curse of AIDS upon a listener who turned out to be a prankster. As Michael Weiner, his proper name, he is a widely-published homeopathy expert.”
Of course, the Brits conveniently failed to note Savage’s educational achievements (Ph.D. and two masters from Berkeley), his four New York Times best-sellers on political matters, his efforts to bring justice to U.S. Marines unfairly charged with crimes in Iraq, his Herculean efforts to expose illegal aliens as a curse on America, his tireless work to expose CAIR and other Muslim groups as the anti-American terrorists that they really are, and his spot on identification of liberalism as a mental disorder.
Moreover, Savage should be in the top five, or to be perfectly honest, he should be designated as the No. 1 Most Influential of American pundits.
After all, Rush Limbaugh is too predictable and devoid of new ideas, Bill O’Reilly is too wishy-washy, and Sean Hannity hangs out with dodo heads like Alan Colmes, for gosh sakes.
Of course, expecting editors at a limey rag to have real stones would be asking far too much, right? At least Dr. Savage made the cut and received a smidgen of the glory that he so richly deserves.
More good news: A cursory look at the top 50 names reveals that ultra-leftist and former talk show host Bernie Ward did not even merit honorable mention.
Perhaps the crew at the Telegraph should create another category for the likes of the former “Lion of the Left” – how about “Most Influential Child Pornographer”?
Alleged, of course!
