(Newser) – A right-wing radio host's rant on Tuesday got nasty—even for talk radio. Andrew Wilkow of Sirius/XM, filling in on the syndicated "Mark Levin Show," called MSNBC's Rachel Maddow a "nice little boy" and Perez Hilton a "vile sodomite," Salon reports. "It just sounds so good to hear in my headphones— vile sodomite," Wilkow said of Hilton. The cable anchor and gossip blogger are gay.

In his attack on Maddow, Wilkow called her "Keith Olbermann's nephew" and said, "You, the idiot taxpayer, are paying the salary of that nice little boy." Wilkow also went after White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, who has won GOP admiration recently, the Huffington Post points out.
