This savage had his own show:
"Oh, you're one of the sodomites," Savage said. "You should only get AIDS and die, you pig. How's that? Why don't you see if you can sue me, you pig. You got nothing better than to put me down, you piece of garbage. You have got nothing to do today, go eat a sausage and choke on it."
He asked for another phone caller who "didn't have a nice night in the bathhouse who's angry at me today."
These bums "mean nothing to me," he said.
There will be no true forgiveness until Eric Alterman has his own show. He's already on the payroll and has a provocative, WWF-worthy title: Altercation. Penance must be paid.
Update: Via Raise Your Hands: "The only option left for MSNBC is to give Eric Alterman his own show. Altercation live sounds like a great show to me. Show your support for Eric and left-of-center liberal TV hosts and Write MSNBC and let them know."
