I agree with the last poster.
I am a Savage fan myself but Levin has that voice and some great comebacks and one liners.
I love when Savage just LOSES it and goes nuts. I've listened to the man long enough to know he *loves* this country (as does Levin).
These are both *excellent* communicators who commo in their own way.

No. Savage is far more passionate. And has far more listeners.
I always thought it was kind of stupid for conservatives talk show hosts to fight one another. The real enemies are AQ and the bad economy.
And to a lesser extent liberalism. What a waste of two good minds.

When Sean was local in NY and back when I used to call into talk radio, he used part of my call as a commercial. I've spoken with everyone, Jay Diamond, Sean, Bob Grant, everyone but Rush. I talked to Levin a few times except for some reason I cannot grasp, he's banned me as a caller.
When I listen to Levin at all I listen to the first 12 minutes at the top of the hour, after that its about evenly divided between commercials and talk show and I just don't have the patience to sit through 10 minutes straight of commercials with 30 second snippets of Levin.
I can only take Savage in small does. I wish Laura Ingraham would get the 6-9 slot

I'm disappointed to hear that Levin attacks Savage. I don't listen to Levin simply because he doesn't air here and Savage does.
I hear a lot of people rip on Savage and after reading Liberty and Tyranny, I thought better of Levin. I wish I knew what problem he has with him.
Closet Liberal? That is an absolute joke. Savage is so far to the right, he should be the standard for conservatism.I always have an open mind, I'm just careful not to let others shovel crap into the opening.

it is probably true that they (mark and michael) do not like each other. and, they take swipes at each other at times... both are strongly opinionated and do not hold back. in saying that, i like 'em both. i sometimes don't agree. they give a fair and balanced assessment of politics, america in general, and the state of affairs.....

I listen to Levin and also Savage. When the World Trade centers were destroyed, there was one talk show host who warned that the debris was hazardous to your heath. It appeared nobody listened and look how many people are now sick. He even listed the materials in the debris that was bad for your health.

I like listening to Savage when he's talking about food, and other esoteric matters.
But, as previously mentioned, he is too rude and abrasive for me most of the time.Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited

Savage has little pet names for some of the conservative talk show hosts, I haven't the slightest clue who is who. I try to figure out whuch is which but I have to admit I have no idea.I always have an open mind, I'm just careful not to let others shovel crap into the opening.

Savage has been insightful and perceptive to levels of genius, however lately he seems to be disintegrating or falling apart. Even at times sounding like Rev. Wright. It is a problem with many genius's that as they get older they mentally begin to fall apart like Howard Hughes. Sad to see such a genius going down. Savage broke a lot of ground at critical times.

I don't listen to Savage however I did read his Political Zoo book and found him to be completely "hateful" to just about everyone including fellow conservative/libertarian radio talk show peers so I couldn't really relate that he has no common ground with them so I have no interest in listening to his show or him.

Sounds about right.Yes, I realize you don't agree with me. My condolences on you being wrong.

Savage is my favorite host, I read Trickle Up Poverty and thought it was brilliant. I don't like this infighting in the Right, it undermines us all, though it is sometimes necessary, as Sean and Rush are being far too soft on the fraud Republicans.Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
