No. I am not a fan of Michael Alan Weiner. He is a stupid fucking pundit that makes millions from brain-dead douchebags.

@johnpowell…don’t hold back how you really feel. Its fluther. It’s ok to open up.

But really, I guess I can now add brain-dead douchebag to the list of names I’ve been called.

Don’t take it personally.. I am just sick and tired of wankers pretending to be journalist when they are shitty hacks. Fallout from the 24 hour news cycle I suppose.

They are pundits. And I apply this equally to both sides of the aisle. I want news, I don’t want someones opinion of the news.

I listened to him for a while (not as a disciple, but just because the radio medium interests me, and I was trying to understand his schtick). Anyway, he’s too bilious and one-sided in his “conversations” for my taste.

I don’t agree with Dennis Miller’s politics either, but I find him infinitely more pleasant to listen to.

eeek conservative alert lol. i am running away now…

As Michael Savage, he has written four New York Times best sellers. His nationally syndicated radio show, The Savage Nation, reaches more than 10 million listeners on 410 stations throughout the United States, ranking third in number of stations syndicated nationwide and third in nationwide audience behind Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

the only savage that I follow is… DAN SAVAGE woo hoo! might be NSFW (oh he is gay, intelligent and witty so if anyone is upset by that dont visit the link) i am sure all the conservatives/republicans hate him without a doubt.

I believe that zealot would be a more appropriate word… “Disciple” has too positive a connotation.

@skwerl88 – very typical statement. If you don’t agree, then it must be wrong.

@vanguardian – how much conceit do you have to have to try to take the moral highroad on such an issue? i explicitly said, “i believe.” Obviously I don’t believe, but you’re doing practically the same thing. You don’t agree with my statement, therefore you accentuate it as being ignorant.

honestly though, the term disciple comes out with an equally as bias implication, merely because of the context its usually applied to.

why don’t i agree?
He’s intolerant! just look as his views on homosexuality. “I don’t like a woman married to a woman. It makes me want to puke…I want to vomit when I hear it. I think it’s child abuse.” Also, his desire for an outright ban on the immigration of Muslims is absurd. He’s catering to a very specific audience… He admits doing so. A disciple usually follow someone who’s right. A zealot follows who they think is right. At least, thats how i define it.

Now that was so much better of an answer. You see, a little emotion goes a long way. Seriously, it was.

I always enjoy reading Dan Savage’s columns. They make me realize how boring my love life is. Ive never wanted to have a threesome with the old man next door and my boss.
