    On Monday, conservative firebrand Michael Savage offered former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich $1 million to resign from the 2012 presidential race. While it’s unlikely that Gingrich will accept the offer, Savage’s rival during that time slot, Mark Levin, has made a counteroffer.

    On his Monday radio show Levin, who refers to Savage as “Weiner Nation” for the talk show host’s real name, Michael Weiner, put $100,000 on the line for Savage to resign from his radio show for good.

    “I see ‘Weiner Nation’ is trying to get his ratings back,” Levin said. “That won’t happen. He wants to offer Newt a million dollars to get out of the race. I don’t know, is that a legal bribe? I have an idea … But if it’s legal, I’ll offer $100,000 if “Weiner Nation” gets off the air of every single station and resigns forever from radio tomorrow.”

    Levin said he would give the radio talk show host 12 hours to make the decision, but added he thought it was a “generous” offer given the state of Savage’s radio program.

    “Let me tell you, that’s extremely generous on my part because he’s already going nowhere,” Levin said. “That’s right — he’s losing affiliates left and right. That’s what happens when you take your audience for granted and take your affiliates for granted.”

    Two Radio power-houses feuding. Kind of hate to see it. I think they're both good. But i guess they are in a ratings War.

    Levin was a bit mistaken though. Savage has the 4th highest radio talk show in the country. Levin is #7. But they are in a hell of a ratings War.

    Can't listen to Levin's penguin-esque voice for more than a few minutes.

    At least Savage's voice is more suitable for the medium and I kinda like his old Jewish uncle shtick, talking about New York back in the day or sailing or wine or whatever else besides politics.

    Yea i like em both but i do favor Savage too. His stories about his childhood are pretty funny. And Levin was incorrect. He is not beating Savage in the ratings. Savage ranks a couple of spots ahead of him in national ratings.

    I used to listen to Savage Nation

    I felt like strangling the nearest liberal when I got out of the car...

    So now, I don't...

    Levin seems like a pretty bright fellow.. I like his quiet and obvious humor..
