On the October 9 edition of his nationally syndicated radio show, Michael Savage declared that former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is a "traitor" who "should be tried for treason, and when she's found guilty, she should be hung." Savage called Albright a "traitor" because he said she "went to North Korea" and "came back like [former British Prime Minister Neville] Chamberlain came back and said, 'Chancellor [Adolf] Hitler has told me he simply wants to take a little piece of territory.' " Savage, who also branded former Clinton national security adviser Samuel "Sandy" Berger a "traitor" and referred to House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA) as "Nancy Paleolosi, because ... [she] is living in the Paleolithic," added of Albright: "[W]hen she is hung, maybe the other quislings in our government will get the message that we're going to crack down on them."
This little tirade of Savage's not only earned him a post on Media Matters, but also gave him a well deserved World's Worst Person in the World award from Keith Olbermann last night.
As Keith points out, there is an awful lot of finger pointing going on right now when it comes to North Korea. The wingnuts are out in full force trying to put all the blame on Clinton (as if that should be shocking). They keep failing to mention exactly how it was that North Korea obtained their nuclear reactors.
