Michael Savage: Newt is an 'Old, Fat, White Man'

Posted: Dec 13, 2011 1:01 PM

Conservative talk show host Michael Savage has some harsh words for Newt Gingrich. Recently on his blog, Savage called Gingrich a "fat, old, white man" and offered him $1 million to drop out of the race. 

"While it's true that (Mitt) Romney is not a strong a conservative as many would like him to be, the most pressing issue before America today is defeating Barack Obama. And that is something Newt Gingrich cannot do," the nationally syndicated Savage wrote on his blog.

Savage isn't shy about saying why Gingrich can't beat Obama, either. On his blog, he shows Gingrich ads with Nancy Pelosi, the right-wing's antithesis. He mentions Gingrich's past infidelity. He also notes that when Gingrich is on television he may not hold his own "compared to Obama and look like nothing more than what he is: a fat, old, white man."

Savage didn't disclose the details of his $1 million offer to Gingrich to quit -- saying those will come soon. But in his long rant, posted in all caps Savage makes it clear Gingrich should "set his ago aside," take the money and get out of the race.

I doubt Gingrich will take the cash.
