Dan Savage is an author, advice columnist, and founder of It Gets Better, an anti-bullying project. If you’ve ever seen one of those videos of a celebrity telling gay teens “it gets better,” that was Dan’s idea.
A noble goal, to be sure. But when he says things like this, it makes me wonder just how noble he is:
Woke up to Sarah Palin’s voice. She’s taken up chewing tobacco now cuz LIBRULS or Bloomberg or something. Now seeing upside of oral cancers.

And yes, that’s the real Dan Savage. His Twitter handle is ironic. Get it?
He also doesn’t like to be told when he’s being self-evidently hypocritical. It makes him lash out like a child:
@fakedansavage The only one crying is you, crybaby. You said something stupid and now you’re being criticized. Get over it.

But he won’t get over it. He’ll continue to say hateful things about people he hates, while pretending to be some sort of anti-bullying guru.
Dan Savage is emotionally ill. And judging by all available evidence, he won’t get better.
