According to World Net Daily, homophobic, rabid-right-wing radio host Michael Savage has asked the one question about the untimely death of controversial online media baron Andrew Breitbart that has been on everyone’s minds: Did President Barack Obama have Breitbart killed.

WND reports:

On his top-rated show today, Savage played an audio clip of Breitbart telling an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month that he had obtained videos that shed light on Obama’s ties to radicals in the early 1980s who helped propel him to the presidency.

“Maybe my overly active imagination kicked into overdrive,” Savage told his listeners of his decision to raise the question. “But you heard what Breitbart said — he has videos … we’re going to vet the president.”

Savage then said:

“I’m asking a crazy question,” Savage said, “but so what? We the people want an answer. This was not an ordinary man. If I don’t ask this question, I would be remiss.”

The right-wing news site then notes:

Savage noted that Breitbart had dinner with Ayers and Dorhn three weeks ago at the couple’s Hyde Park residence on Chicago’s South Side, which is near Obama’s home. Breitbart was invited by Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson, who won an Internet auction for a dinner party with the couple.

“I’ve got videos — this election we’re going to vet him,” Breitbart said at CPAC, promising they would show how “racial division and class warfare are central” to the “hope and change” that Obama”sold in 2008.”

“He threatened the president at CPAC with video that could derail the president’s campaign,” Savage said.

“I pray it was natural causes, but we’ll never know the truth.”

Actually, we may be closer to the truth than Savage is letting on. Later on, WND reports that “Savage, the author of the bestselling novel Abuse of Power, put on his novelist hat and speculated about ways a murderer could remain undetected by inducing a heart attack that didn’t leave any traces.”

Hmm. I don’t know about you, with that in mind I’d be remiss if I didn’t ask this question, one that seems far more pertinent than the one asked by the talk radio host: Did Michael Savage play a role in Andrew Breitbart’s death?
