I stumbled on this article at the Huffington Post.
Now, I have to admit, I had to Google® his name to find out just who the hell this clown is.
That's part of the charm of living in a semi-rural (for Alaska) town, without access to big-time radio stations like WABC. There's a limited number of asshats cluttering up the airwaves.
Plus, I usually listen to NPR, which has a very low asshat factor, and they know how to deal with them when they do show up.
In any event, as much as I despise Glenn Beck's Stupid™, Rush Limbaugh's mean-spirited arrogance, and Sean Hannity's cowardice, they pale in comparison to this Mark Levin jerk.
Here's a transcript of the Friday exchange between Mr. Levin and a caller who doesn't happen to agree with him:
CALLER: I just wanna say, Obama is a lot smarter than you folks give him credit for. You guys were on a roll, I have to admit, with all those tea parties. Everything was rolling along, the Republicans were gaining momentum. And he managed to change your entire conversational focus. And you let those three hundred thousand people —
LEVIN: My God. He’s so smart. His own party voted against him on Guantanamo Bay. How stupid was that, Cindy? His own party refused to fund the closing of Guantanamo Bay.
CALLER. Yeah but you know he can just move those people over here anyway. He’s already doing it with the one guy.
LEVIN: Yeah, sure, he can do whatever he wants. Let me ask you a question. Why do you hate this country?
CALLER: No, I love this country.
LEVIN: (angrily shouting) I SAID WHY DO YOU HATE MY COUNTRY?WHY DO YOU HATE MY CONSTITUTION? WHY DO YOU HATE MY DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE? You just said it. He can blow off Congress. He can do whatever he wants, right?
CALLER: Well, he seems to, he just moved (inaudible).
LEVIN: Answer me this, are you a married woman? Yes or no?
CALLER: Yes.LEVIN: Well I don’t know why your husband doesn’t put a gun to his temple. Get the hell out of here.
Well, isn't that a fine example of civil debate!
Michael Savage has nothing on Mark Levin.
Perhaps they should share a microphone, they certainly share other traits.
Mr. Levin, you merit the Asshat of the Week Award!
