Something bizarre happened to Rush on his way to work this week.
The host was driving to the studio when he says he started getting bizarre messages on his iPhone, such as, “Obama’s minions are taking over, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
He’s heard various technical explanations for why this happened, but says “no answer was satisfactory.”
On the air, Limbaugh had nothing but praise for the Secret Service agents involved in the Colombian prostitution scandal.
You read that right: Rush told listeners sarcastically, “I’m just glad to see there’s one person who’s still stingy with the taxpayers’ dollars, and I’m talking about that Secret Service guy who got in and out of there for 47 bucks.”
Savage also commented on the Secret Service scandal, stressing its importance and wondering why sexual misconduct always seems to happen only when there’s a Democrat in the White House (FREE audio).
Every year, talk radio hosts eagerly await the release of the Talkers Magazine “Heavy Hundred.” A top spot on this prestigious broadcasting industry list is every radio personality’s goal.
This year, Michael Savage ranked No. 3 overall, beating out rivals like Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck, who finished at Nos. 5, 7 and 9, respectively.
Talkers praised Savage as “an outside-the-mainstream conservative talk media titan” who bucks all conventionalism; “his educational background and broad areas of expertise are simply unmatched by any other conservative radio star.”
“Savage’s acerbic goulash of political ideology, comedy and advice,” Talkers continued, “has earned him a loyal following that’s helped build his weekly audience to more than 9 million listeners.”
WND’s own Aaron Klein also made the coveted “Heavy Hundred” list, and was one of only two all-weekend talk radio shows to do so.
On his show, Klein talked to Alan Dershowitz about the second-degree murder charges filed against George Zimmerman and whether or not such a charge can stick, given the circumstances of the Trayvon Martin shooting.
Plus: A constitutional expert came on to explain exactly what the phrase “natural born citizen” means! (FREE audio).
Veteran political analyst Dick Morris joined Hannity to weigh the strengths and weaknesses of Romney and Obama, and speculated on whether or not Romney has what it takes to win the White House in November (FREE audio).
Mark Levin says the Republican establishment is trying to marginalize truly conservative candidates and thereby disenfranchise millions of Americans. He cited the GOP’s attempts to marginalize Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., who refuses to play political “footsie” with Party bigwigs while fighting for his constituents (FREE audio).
Levin also called “No. 3 Democrat” Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina “poison” and “a certifiable moron” for making a bizarre comparison between tyrants who illegally abscond with their nation’s wealth and American citizens who legally save their money in Swiss bank accounts (FREE audio).
In a dramatic segment, Laura talked to Special Agent Clint Hill, Jacqueline Kennedy’s Secret Service agent, who ran to her aid seconds after her husband’s murder.
Michael Savage joined Ingraham to talk about his New York Times bestselling non-fiction book “Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama’s Dream of the Socialist States of America.”
Savage divulged his views on America’s cultural decline from Brangelina to the retirement of the Discovery shuttle.
An unbowed Ted Nugent told Glenn Beck that the uproar about his comments critical of the President was “silly.” He said he would cooperate with any investigation by the Secret Service, and predicted that when it is over, “the conclusion will be obvious that I threatened no one.”
And now, from the left side of the dial …
Liberal talk show host Mike Malloy is back under the microscope for making more outrageous remarks on the air.
This week, he repeated the commonplace progressive slander that Pope Benedict XVI was a “Nazi” during World War II and referred to Catholic priests as “child rapists.”
Malloy also called Catholic League president Bill Donohue a “fascist” and a “filthy pig.”
The Catholic League’s communications director, Jeff Fields, responded by saying that Malloy should “bone up on history,” explaining: “The pope was conscripted into the Hitler Youth, as was every boy in Germany at that time. But unlike most of the other teenagers, he refused to attend meetings, which in turn brought economic hardship on his family. Moreover, he deserted the Hitler Youth at the first opportunity.”
No doubt Mike Malloy is one of those leftists who fancies himself as “speaking truth to power” every day on the radio. One wonders if, under similar circumstances, Malloy would prove to be as courageous as that teenaged boy who grew up to be pope.
