Wombats Fly Spaceships

Once or twice (maybe even three times) I have tuned in to a bizarre talk radio show hosted by one Michael Savage. He seemed to always be really angry, not just cranky "you kids get offa my lawn" angst, but somehow deeply and emotionally devoted to some goofy ideas.

But on Monday, according to this transcript, he said that the Democrat party gave Supreme Court Justice Roberts the seizure Roberts suffered this week.

Am I to believe that there's no connection between [Senator] Charles Schumer on Friday saying that he would never appoint, or never, excuse me, approve another Bush appointment to the court, to any court? And then the chief justice suffers a so-called seizure two days later? You're telling me there's no possibility of a conspiracy by the Democrats to have caused this seizure in some manner? Tell me that it's not possible. Tell me that the stakes are not so high that the liberals -- who've finally lost the court after 50 years -- that they would stop short of anything like this. Tell me it's not possible, and I'll tell you you're a liar."

Savage's ratings are pretty high - tallied at 8 million listeners per week. So Savage's rant was heard (and likely believed) by millions of people.

I know hyperbole and media go together like peanut butter and jelly. So I am going to predict the next Big Scandal from Savage -- he will claim that Wombats Fly Spaceships. And not just yer ordinary everyday Wombat, either. These will be Liberal Democrat Wombats who seek to become the Dark Overlords of Time and Space.


  1. I do believe our new wombat overlords prefer to be referred to as "progressives."

  2. Those wombats are preserving my freedom.

    My Supreme Court Voodoo doll has Scalia's face taped on it, anyway.

  3. Wombats?
    I juggle them all the time.

    I am thinking that after Bush accepted his Purple Heart from the Vietnam Vet who felt Bush had been sorely wounded by the words of criticism for his conduct as president, Savage felt this would play to his dingbat audience. We now know there are about six million people or more who are willing to believe anything.
    I note the term "progressive" is now in play after our Liberal comrades attempt to rebrand themselves. Lets ttalk now of how Kennedy's Council on Physical fitness was the launching board for that and how it was copied from the Nazis, yada yada yada.
    It is kind of inconvenient that there are posts separating this one from the ones on Rep. Davis's prattle. It's easy enough to see they are drinking the same Kool-aid however.

  5. Oxy,
    I've always retched at the use of the word, "progressive." I'm a Liberal, and proud. No excuses.

    I don't mind the use of Progressive since they begat the Liberal movement at one hell of a price for their progress.

    I am a Lib, no excuses. Fuck who ever it bothers.

    Be sure to note Michael's real surname is "Weiner" ... I like the sound of "The Weiner Nation"
