Dan Savage Gives Daily Pennsylvanian Thoughtful, Nuanced Interview

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.”

    savage said, he should be “dragged behind a pickup truck until there’s nothing left but the rope,” to be accurate.
    his rhetoric may be strong (very strong) but if what he’s saying is true, that the green party is majorly funded by the GOP, then it is indeed wise to question their integrity.

    I love how informed people with sharp opinions are considered “insane” in this passive-aggressive culture. Dan Savage is a hero for speaking clearly and concisely what is on his mind. I whole heartedly agree with his positions… including the beating of Greens with sticks. Fucking brilliant.
