~ A Romney man. (hat tip to Jesus' General)
~ An invitation to a stalker... It was just strange, said a reader: KIRO fill-in talk host cRaZy! BrYaN sTyBLe! asked listeners to invite him to their New Year's parties if they wanted to add a "radioactive guy" to their celebration. Wouldn't he be a fun addition to any festivity? Sadly, for the pathetic peripatetic, no one thought so. So Bryan on that night of nights emulated the Baby Buddha: "I cry, I sit alone, I sleep."
~ Hemorrhoidal rage: Glenn Beck took some time off from his daily radio and TV talk shows, (KTTH m-f, 6-9a) released a confessional video with an unshaven and bedridden Beck telling a vague but horrible tale about a near fatal hospital stay, a hemorrhoid operation that went "horribly awry;" blood coming out of places blood shouldn’t come out of; and drug effects to the former addict that produced suicidal thoughts. Many were surprised that the snarly little brabbler actually can bleed but the experience as shown on the video seems real. We're hoping all of it will change his heart and he'll become a compassionate liberal and give up the mean schtick that's made him so popular in places like dogfights and Minutemen rallies.
~ who the hell is Phil Hendrie, besides the new talent m-f 10p-1a on KIRO? Liberal or a conservative? Seems he's a little of each and wiggles neocon-- Here's his Wikipedia entry-- which he obviously wrote himself:
Hendrie considers his views unique for modern talk radio: on one hand, he is a registered Democrat who vocally supported Bill Clinton, voted for Al Gore over George W. Bush in 2000, both Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale over Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, and Michael Dukakis over George H.W. Bush (although Hendrie claims "I had to hold my nose when voting for Dukakis"). Hendrie is also adamantly pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, and pro-amnesty for illegal immigrants. At the same time, he is extremely supportive of the Iraq War as well as the War on Terror. He voted for and supported President George W. Bush in the 2004 election, chiding Democrat John Kerry as trying to be "all things to all people" and cautioning listeners that Bush would in time be viewed as one of the greatest American presidents. These views caused a stir among some of his fans and tended to dominate his show throughout 2002 and 2003. Hendrie eventually started a blog, titled and located at www.georgewbushisgod.com (seemingly to incite those who felt he was moving too far to the right). The blog came down after a few weeks, partly because Phil was tired of squabbling with readers. Hendrie has since renounced using his radio program for political ranting, saying that he didn't want to be "another white man all mad and ready with the answers" in a 2006 live chat with fans.
~ MORE CHANGES AT KIRO: the creaky website, we hear, is about to be replaced with something more helpful. Look for it in a week or so...

~ What does Jen Andrews, TBTL producer/sidekick ( KIRO m-f, 7-10p) look like? She doesn't much like our ass, and won't send us a current picture so w e're stuck with the old ones like we ran Monday, or the one on the left. Anone who has a new pic of Jen, PLEASE SEND IT TO US, and we'll pay you in Blather-bucks.
~ We halfheartedly supported Cthlulhu http://blatherwatch.blogs.com/talk_radio/2008/01/praise-him.html for the Republican nomination, but we've had our head turned by New Jersey's Jonathon "the Impaler" Sharkey. He seems to have the compassion required to run on that ticket.
~ Billo went to New Hampshire over the weekend to see if he could make the early primary about him. He almost succeeded. At an Obama rally, he was fortunate enough to be able to shove a security guard who was blocking a camera shot his crew was trying to make. Obama, Billo said, was a gentleman, but the security guy who got in his way did so to get "cred from the far-left." Billo shoved him, called him a son of a bitch, and had to be talked to by the Secret Service in order to "protect the Constitution." O'Reilly stretched the scuffle to an hour on his radio show and to several TV segments. We never did get the security guy's name so we could enter his his far-left cred in our far-left ledger.
Progressive Talk, (KPTK) host the Seattle stop on the Goldwater-Miller '08 Campaign Tour. in a campaign rally as Stephanie Miller and CC Goldwater continue their run
for the White House, Saturday Jan. 19th at Laughs Comedy Spot in Kirkland (12099 124th Ave NE) from 1 to 3p. The liberal talk host's (KPTK m-f, 6-9a) father William Miller was CC's grandfather Barry Goldwater's running mate in 1964. The dazzling descendants told BlatherWatch: "Let’s be honest, this is clearly just a cheap publicity stunt to promote the DVD release of CC Goldwater’s HBO Documentary Film, Mr. Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater and The Stephanie Miller Show."
