Dan Savage is a favorite of ours for editing Seattle’s The Stranger alt-weekly and for writing “Savage Love,” a bludgeoning sex advice column that runs in papers like The Onion and the Village Voice. And he’s a hero for re-defining the word “Santorum” after the frothy Pennsylvania senator gave a despicable interview linking gays and bestiality.
But this video interview Savage gave the Daily Pennsylvanian on Keystone State politics seems a little — what’s the word? — crazy. Everything’s cruising along until he says Green Party candidate Carl Romanelli should be “dragged behind a pickup truck until there’s nothing left
of but the rope.” Notes the DP‘s Stephen Morse, “This was by far the most insane interview that I’ve ever conducted.”
