Memo To Mark Levin: Do Something Positive; Donate Your $100,000 To Charity

I don’t listen much to Mark Levin. But from what little my ears can tolerate, Chris Matthews's description of Levin's and fellow wingnut Hate radio screamer Michael Savage's  angry, foaming-at-the-mouth hysterical tone is right on the money: "Every time you listen to them, they are furious. Furious at the left. With anger that just builds and builds in their voice and by the time they go to commercial they are just in some rage every night with some ugly talk. Ugly sounding talk and it never changes."

In response, Levin laid down a challenge: Here’s what the radio guttersnipe said: "I challenge Chris Matthews, I'll put $100,000 on the table, to find any example where Sarah Palin has promoted the murder of anybody. A hundred thousand on the table if Chris Matthews can find anywhere Mark Levin has urged the murder of people who have different political viewpoints. "

Chris never said or suggested any of that. He never said anything even close to the kind of irresponsible rhetoric that is Levin’s and Savage's stock-in-trade. So if Levin wants to do something positive with his $100 grand, donate it to a charity for victims of gun violence or one of the charities suggested by Gabby Giffords's husband. In a statement, Gabrielle Giffords’s astronaut husband, U.S. Navy Capt. Mark Kelly, said: “There is little that we can do but pray for those who are struggling. If you are inspired to make a positive gesture, consider two organizations that Gabby has long valued and supported: Tucson’s Community Food Bank and the American Red Cross.”

Or consider, the 100 Club of Arizona (with a 5-star rating) "Supporting families of public safety."
