Hey everybody, it's Appropriate Michael Savage's name for your own purposes day! With contributions from Haypenny, über, Neal Pollack himself, and much, much, more, all in response to these threats.

Lock this guy and Dan Savage in a room together, see who survives.

Hell, why not toss Doc Savage in there for fun too.

Between this and the Supreme Court decision, this may not be a good day to be Michael Savage. I weep.

I applaud Neal Pollack for making himself the epicenter of a fascinating form of protest humor. We may someday be trying to explain how this kind of thing got going and have to say, "Well, you know Neal Pollack, the Greatest Living American Writer? Seems he had this blog..."

I'm confused - if the RIAA can potentially sue 57 million P2P users, why can't Michael Savage sue the pitiful thousand or so who'd appropriate his name?

The easiest thing to do about this schmuck is simply let him wither and fade away. Why give him this much additional free press?

Wouldn't this FPP be more effective if it had provided some clue as to who Michael Savage is?

The link to michaelsavage.com didn't do that for you, mischief?

Don't forget Coco Savage from one of the all time best arcade games, Mat Mania.

I support any and all attempts to fuck over Michael Savage, pretty much no matter what form said attempt might take.

I love Neal Pollack for stuff like this:

And as such, I like doing the things that most gay people do, such as walking my dog, mowing my lawn, and eating dinner.

You know, that gets much dirtier if you put some quote marks in. Check it out:

quotes are fine ... as long as nobody goes off "Shaking hands with Abraham Lincoln ."

This fpp would have been much more useful if it had been posted, oh I don't know, YESTERDAY so us webmasters could have had time to implement the freaking wonderful suggestion.

Or else have included the standard time machine link.

Or, for that matter, goes windsurfing on Mt. Baldy.
