NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - Some conservatives don't believe
Popular right-wing talk-radio host Michael Savage has
offered Newt Gingrich $1 million to drop out of the race for
the GOP nomination because he doesn't believe the former
Speaker of the House can beat President Barack Obama.
"While it's true that (Mitt) Romney is not a strong a
conservative as many would like him to be, the most pressing
issue before America today is defeating Barack Obama. And that
is something Newt Gingrich cannot do," the nationally
syndicated Savage said on his blog.
And why is that?
Savage has a long list on his blog, including Gingrich's
ads with Nancy Pelosi, his past infidelity and the fact that --
no matter his intelligence -- when he appears on TV "he will
come off badly compared to Obama and look like nothing more
than what he is: a fat, old, white man."
So, after a lengthy diatribe in all caps, Savage offered
Gingrich $1 million to "set his ego aside" and "take the money
... and don't run."
Savage said he will reveal further details soon.
