It is interesting to discover how back in the day, people got their given surnames. If your surname is Cooper it's because your ancestors were barrel makers. If you have the surname of Brewster, your forefathers were Brewers and if you are a Collier than you come from a long line of Coal Miners. Just what Michael Weiner's family were caught doing to earn that surname could be an interesting story but he saw sense to change it to Savage although reading through some of his comments, the first name was much more apt.
I had never heard of Michael Savage until this week when Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, decided one morning that she didn't want the American talk show host coming to this country and banned him. Not that he had any plans to come here, she was just randomly saying that if he did decide to make a trip to Blighty one day, he couldn't come.
He was named among 16 people who 'fomented hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way as to cause violence if they were allowed into the country, she said.
It seems America has a (what is the collective noun for brainless right-wing talk show hosts, a gag possibly) of these morons who thrive on controversy and notoriety and appeal to those Obama called religious, bitter, gun clingers. We have Terry Wogan.
In response to our Government telling him to stay over there, Savage is telling his listeners to boycott coming to England and as he purports to speak on behalf of the American public, we may be deprived of the sight and sound of yanks in psychodelic shirts mangling the names of our towns and talking loudly about resting their fanny.
I'm not personally against Weiner coming here, we have our own fair share of right wing imbeciles with nothing intelligent to say and who appeal to the equally brainless. We call them the Conservative Party.
