The Savage Weiner: Calls NH residents 'drunks', 'yokels'
On the December 12 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, while discussing the presidential primary system, Michael Savage asked, "What kind of rubbish is this that New Hampshire -- a bunch of drunks up there -- and Iowa, they're going to determine the outcome of an election?" Savage also referred to the residents of New Hampshire as "yokels" and "stamp collectors" and the residents of Iowa as "corn farmers."

.....

SAVAGE: WTNT, Steven, you're on The Savage Nation.

CALLER: Hi, Dr. Savage. I'm just calling to say you're absolutely right about Iowa. I was disgusted when I read in the paper the other day that the turnout of the voting age population in Iowa for the caucuses is 10 percent.

SAVAGE: But why do we care about Iowa? This is a holdover from the 19th century, when we were largely an agrarian nation. What kind of rubbish is this that New Hampshire -- a bunch of drunks up there -- and Iowa, they're going to determine the outcome of an election? Who came up with that nonsense? That's like believing in Santa Claus. If you believe that a bunch of drunks in New Hampshire and a bunch of stamp collectors in New Hampshire and a bunch of corn farmers in Iowa really are going to predict who the next president will be, that is like believing in Santa Claus.

2. He was actually a dirty beatnik.
It's good to keep these things straight. By which I intended no punning reference to the fact that he was also quite favorably inclined towards the homosex in those days.
