Michael Savage isn't at all happy that Mitt Romney is distancing himself from plans by Joe Ricketts' super PAC to go after Jeremiah Wright.  He thinks Romney is going the same route as John McCain by walking away from an issue that could help him win.

“Romney’s finished,” Savage told his “Savage Nation” audience yesterday. “He’s a fall guy. I’m the only one in the media who told you.”

Savage said Romney was “being misdirected by the very same people who misdirected McCain – who should have won the last election.”

“McCain said, ‘No, I won’t go there, I won’t do that,’ and lost the election.”

Republicans in 2008 naturally voted for McCain, Savage explained, but the independents who decided the election “did not come out for him, because he was nothing but a two-faced RINO,” a Republican In Name Only.

I have to wonder what world Savage lives in.  Last I checked, going after Obama on Wright would have actually turned off independents.  Plus, let's say it all together as a group--Obama renounced Wright during the 2008 campaign.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
