Dr. Savage called Al Sharpton “the worst man in the history of America” this week, after an investigative report revealed that the “Reverend” had been a long-time FBI informant.
“This is one of the biggest stories of my life,” Savage said.
To those who wonder why they should care about Sharpton’s various crimes and misdemeanors, Savage explained: “He is always at the White House. He was at Obama’s second inauguration, up there on the Capitol steps. … This would be like a Republican president hanging out with the leader of the KKK” (Free audio).
If “the country has gone insane” – and Dr. Savage says it has – then put the blame on the over-prescription of anti-depressants.
He predicted: “Within a certain number of decades, anti-depressants will be outlawed because of the suicides and homicides associated with them. It won’t happen now because the drug industry controls the press.
“The people who sit on the boards of directors of the companies that make the anti-depressants own the news corporations. In the old days, such arrangements would have been illegal” (Free audio).
He’s finally doing it: Thirteen years after Rush Limbaugh received his first cochlear implant, he will undergo surgery next week to receive one in his other ear.
“[W]hen I lost my hearing [in 2001],” Limbaugh told to his audience, “it happened to coincide with human technology advancing to the point that the cochlear implant existed.
“If I had lost my hearing five years earlier, I would have had to quit my job. I would have lost my career,” he said. “I’ve always been kind of in awe of that reality.”
Speaking of modern medicine, Limbaugh noted that another one of his predictions about Obamacare has come true: “One of the things that I had said in the past that I’d, frankly, forgotten ’til I saw the AP story was it wouldn’t be long before massive criticism of doctors erupted. That criticism would take the form of, ‘Why should people treating the sick become rich?’ Remember? It wasn’t going to be long – I warned you – before we saw a class-warfare assault on doctors” (Free audio).
President Obama attended a fundraiser just hours after speaking at a memorial service at Fort Hood, and Levin said he was “ashamed and disgusted.”
“I’m sorry ladies and gentlemen, I believe this man is a disgrace,” Levin told his listeners. “I don’t know how you leave such a solemn event and then within hours you’re glad-handing, you’re fundraising as if you can turn it off and turn it on” (Free audio).
Levin also pronounced Jeb Bush “the dumbest of the Bushes,” after the former governor referred to illegal immigration as “an act of love.”
“Now about chain migration, Jeb?” chided Levin. “Is that an act of love, too? No, it’s not? Well, what is it? And when you have anarchy on the border, how do you know people are coming for love and some are coming for hate, Jeb? This is like liberal crap-speak here” (Free audio).
This week, the liberal media used something called “Equal Pay Day” to spread long debunked myths about the so-called “wage gap” between men and women.
Ingraham for one knows the reason why: “Equal Pay Day, it makes the left feel like they’re accomplishing something,” explained Ingraham. “This is the way the left keeps the drumbeat going. I’d say it’s the four D’s: deflect, divide, demean and distract. We’re distracting from really bad and lousy job-creation for the Obama administration” (Free audio).
After Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid launched an unhinged attack on the “right wing” billionaire Koch brothers, Ingraham noted that Reid “has his own connections to the subsidiary of the Koch Brothers.”
She also pointed out that liberals like George Soros, Steven Spielberg and David Geffen also contribute millions of dollars to political causes but aren’t demonized the way the Kochs are (Free audio).
Glenn Beck has gone from mere talk show host to media mogul. In a recent interview, he explained how he created GBTV and TheBlaze.com after he left Fox News.
The way Americans receive their news and other information, he said, “is going to get to a place where it is much more personal, where you’ll be able to see, whatever it is you’re looking for, you’ll be able to see the truth.”
One of this week’s oddest exchanges occurred between Louie Gohmert and Attorney General Eric Holder, when the latter, obviously agitated, said, “Good luck with your asparagus.”
Gohmert joined Beck on the air to try to explain what Holder meant.
Last year, Gohmert had flippantly repeated an old Three Stooges line: “Don’t cast aspersions on my asparagus.”
For that, he’d been roundly mocked by comedian Jon Stewart and others who weren’t familiar with the reference.
Holder obviously wasn’t either, Beck said, which was understandable. What did seem strange, though, is that the Attorney General had clearly been obsessed about the silly line and had been dying for the chance to somehow use it against Gohmert.
“For a year that’s been simmering under there,” Beck marveled. “The guy’s had a year to think about that line. He has waited a year. That is psychotic!”
