Savage and Obama: how far is too far?

According to Media Matters for America, syndicated talk-show host Michael Savage said some remarkably incendiary things about Barack Obama on his March 13 show. Here's the most inflammatory:

I think he was hand-picked by some very powerful forces both within and outside the United States of America to drag this country into a hell that it has not seen since the Civil War of the middle of the 19th century.
Obviously, Savage is free to entertain this theory and to speak it out loud. The question is, do the stations that carry his show want to him a platform to do it?

Here in Boston, Savage's show is heard on WRKO-AM. Here's what station spokesman George Regan told me a minute ago: "That's obviously a nationally syndicated show, so we don't have any control over the content. However, we obviously do not go along with Mr. Savage's remarks."
