Mike Savage ponders the preciousness of life and vegetarianism

Part of the reason I started this blog is my fascination with egoists. What does a fanatic do in his down time? Is he indeed, human? What does he think when a crow lands nearby and pecks at a chestnut with curious resolve? Is he filled with disgust at the bird’s very existence or does he quietly observe the bird’s actions and then proceed to weave the bird’s doings into his own theory of life? Probably both anyway, that’s my quick conclusion. It’s what we all do, right? We are all egoists, to be sure. The people on the airwaves just happen to have a microphone in front of them blasting their often fast, unresolved conclusions onto thousands, sometimes millions of people. We are envious of them, we admire them even when we don’t agree with them because they are doing what we wish we could be doing. They deliver what we want to hear or what we don’t want to hear and then sometimes, in those strange rare moments they sound, oddly, like us. Human.

I must be some kind of genie according to my liberal friends when I listen to am radio and find something good to report. But I do. Often. Even Mike Savage, that rampaging far right hate monger has a soft spot. So the Savage Man himself was on vacation last week and his station recycled an earlier June broadcast of his rampages but I still listened and what I heard was a lonely man contemplating the fact that he does contemplate.

So Mike Savage was pondering the preciousness of life which he oft does and then, oddly he began discussing not eating something that has eyes. He said that it troubled him that he had to eat something that has eyes but you know what, he’ll eat it when it’s scrambled meat in his rigatoni and if he doesn’t see any eyes in it; you know what, he’ll still eat it. As long as he doesn’t see those eyes looking back he’s good to go. Now what does this say about his conscious? Will he eat liberals as long as they’re scrambled and he doesn’t have to look into their visage gaping back at him? My conclusion? A haunted man.
