American scientist and conservative talk show host. His vitriolic rants on his radio show, "The Savage Nation" and conservative and controversial views have earned him a large following. He claims to have coined the phrase "Compassionate Conservatism" co-opted by George W. Bush in Bush's bid for the White House in the 2000 Presidential election. For Savage, the phrase suggests "with passion."

The son of Russian Jews who emigrated to the US before his birth, he says ""I was raised on neglect, anger, and hate" which he claims made him the way he is. He is described as talkative, intense, and intelligent.

Well-educated, Michael earned a B.S. in Biology in 1963, a Master of Science in medical botany in 1970, a Master of Ars in medical anthropology (1972) and a Ph.D. in Nutritional Ethnomedicine in 1978. For his doctorate, he wrote his dissertation on “Nutritional Ethnomedicine in Fiji.” He hasn't stopped writing since then and has produced 18 books and has developed an expertise in herbal medicine. His first book was entitled "Secrets of Fijian Medicine" which he co-wrote with Irving Stone in 1970. His more recent books include "The Herbal Bible" (1992), "Herbs That Heal" (1994) co-written with his wife Janet, "The Savage Nation" (2002) and "The Enemy Within" (2004). In addition he is a columnist.

In 1994 he began broadcasting his radio show "The Savage Nation" on a local San Francisco station. It has since become syndicated. Described as always having been talkative, he is thought to be "something of a dreamer." He has traveled widely particularly in the South Pacific and honors native wisdom.

He and his wife have two children.

Source Notes

On October 23, 2008, Madalyn Hillis-Dineen wrote by e-mail to PT: "I happened to be cruising the dials on my radio last evening when I heard a woman who said she was an astrologer talking to Michael Savage.

Anyway, he revealed his birth time as 6:30 am.... birthdate according to Wikipedia is 3/31/42 in NYC (probably the Bronx).
