Savage walked his comment back in a later blog post, but on national TV this is what he said:
Friday's "Real Time" on HBO contained some of the most vile political talk ever broadcast on national television.
In one panel segment, gay sex advice columnist Dan Savage said of Republicans, "I wish they were all f--king dead."
... Is this really the kind of discussion HBO condones? A guest saying he wants about 40 percent of the nation dead?
Exactly how does someone get away with saying something like that on national television?
