Michael Savage: Democrats Caused Justice Roberts' Seizure; Media Matters Fails To Note Rather Obvious Possibility It's a Parody

However, it seems to be a likely spoof of the new John Bircher Left.

This is my first, and I hope last, link to Media Matters. Notice the don't even acknowledge this possibility, though there's a great deal of support for it.

SAVAGE: All right, we have a breaking news update. Chief Justice John Roberts has had a seizure in his summer home in Maine, and he fell on a dock. Now, what's interesting to me, and almost frightening and puzzling, is that on Friday Charles Schumer gave a loud and vociferously nasty speech during which he said he would never support another Bush judge. He would never support a -- it was -- you know, let me ask you something. All you leftists believe in the conspiracy of Bush and Cheney, the conspiracy of 9-11. Am I to believe that there's no connection between Charles Schumer on Friday saying that he would never appoint, or never, excuse me, approve another Bush appointment to the court, to any court? And then the chief justice suffers a so-called seizure two days later? You're telling me there's no possibility of a conspiracy by the Democrats to have caused this seizure in some manner? Tell me that it's not possible. Tell me that the stakes are not so high that the liberals -- who've finally lost the court after 50 years -- that they would stop short of anything like this. Tell me it's not possible, and I'll tell you you're a liar.

Later on he once again says that it's specifically leftists and leftwingers who should ponder this scenario in their beds tonight, suggesting, again, that this is a parody intended to prove a point to leftists and leftwingers. Obviously, if the Demcorats really were poisoning Roberts with seizure-inducing drugs, it would be a matter of general concern, and not merely something for leftists and leftwingers to think about.

I really don't like Michael Savage, and I actually began linking this as a slam on him. But as I listened to the tape I realized he was most likely goofing on the Truther Left. Something that Media Matters cannot even acknowledge as a possibility.
