Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Dave Ross: will dino rossi ambush me... PLEASE?!:

Comments

AuthenticAndrew

This reminds me of when TBTL takes calls (or doesn't), Luke constantly mentions that taking calls put the producer Jen on edge, and she sounds like it does. Aside from shielding us listeners from the spontaneity of someone else they forget I'M RIGHT HERE. They're talking about listeners as if we're a bunch of retards that can't be trusted ON THE AIR.

Bud Dickman

I hear unpredictable, quirky, funny stuff everyday on KISW. But listening to that means I'm a knuckledragging goon.

I'm 26 and TBTL sucks and the fact they cant take calls shows what a pampered, uptight, prom king and queen lifestyle they had growing up, cowards.

Duffman

Well AA if you tuned in last night you obviously heard Seattle-area's infamous 'pot-head' call in and proceed to go thru his antics; so can you blame Jen for her apprehension.

My Man Dori

Dave is a pompous ass that talks with his nose stuck up in the air and has a big time Napolean complex.

Give me a break....he can't sing, he couldn't beat Reichert and he has a predictable boring radio show.

Go back to your DUX bed Ross!

Schick Shadel

Does anybody remember the softball questions Dave asked Darcy Burner?

She refused to answer a simple yes/no question...would you cut off funding for the troops?

sparky

Holy crap...Darryl-420 is calling KIRO again?? I thought they blocked his phone number. He was an ass in the KIRO chat room. By now, Darryl must have balls the size of BBshot.

Wild Bill

Schick, I'm glad I don't live in that district. I'm a Democrat, but Ms. Burner is such a weak candidate that I would vote for the Sheriff. Her interview with The Great Dave Ross (Seattle's best) was really bad, not an original idea or position in her blather. As far as tbtl, Andy and Dick, if you don't get it that's fine. There's always Ricker's Chinese (Yawn) pizza for you. Luke is Seattle's next Dave Ross, if we're lucky enough to keep him; that kind of talent usually leaves us here in the navel gazing Jet City.

AuthenticAndrew

If Art Bell can do it, Luke Burbank should be able to do it. Anyone who says otherwise is an absolute coward.

Coiler

Darryl...lol I remember Errant Heart used to wrap her whole show around him calling in.

Puget Sound

Darryl use to get quite the beatdown when he called into John Carlson's show.

Merci, I like your updated blog. Some good stuff.

nevets

I actually thought Dave Ross was rather harsh on Darcy. I could have sworn that if Dave ross had pressed further, she would have broken down and skeddadled like Sparky does when the questions gets to tough for her.

And was that Patty Murray today who stood up in Congress and said...

"Even if we drill off-shore it will not effect the cost of gas".

Does she even listen to or watch the news. President Bush just lifted the ban on off shore drilling and what did oil do? Dropped like $10.00 a bbl. So Patty, instead of showing your disgust at the current President, show some courage for once and break with the party line so your constituents here in Washiington State can get back to living like they did in 2006. You and the rest of that Liberal Party you belong to have dragged us down enough. Either help your State or get off the pot and let someone else more qualified do it.

AuthenticAndrew

Haha, ambush in progress.

RedmondDem

The price of oil has dropped because of decreased demand. What Senator Murray should have added is that the oil in ANWR has a high sulpher content, which makes it take long to clean and process. She also should have said the oil is already slated to go on the World Market, specifically mostly to Japan. Russia, India and China use even more than we do, and we will not be seeing much, if any, of that oil, should it be drilled.
Oil companies will snatch up any new leases -- a process that essentially amounts to calling "dibs" on the remaining domestic oil and gas -- and sit on them so they can trade the oil on the commodities market. The price will likely bargain up, not down, and then maybe we can put a stake through the heart of this "drill here, drill now" nonsense once and for all, and shift popular thinking to alternatives.

The U.S. has in its reserves available for drilling, about 3% of the world's oil. We use 25% of the world's oil daily.

We could put drilling platforms shoulder-to-shoulder along our coastline and we would still only have 3% of the world's oil. We would still use 25% of the world's oil.

Where does the other 22% come from? Russia, Venzuela, North Atlantic, Middle East, etc. And that is not likely to change until our cars run on something else.

We cannot drill our way out of this problem.

Wow! I didn't think there was any one shorter than slick 'ol Dino Dave Being Hi-Jacked haha

Redmond Dem

Sorry for the double post. My Internet connection went down and when it came back on I hit POST again.

AuthenticAndrew

LOLOLLLOLzerz!!! I don't have instant playback but I swear I just heard Ron and Don's producer say something to this effect: "people come to Seattle because we're tollerant... but all the tolerant people are white." Don't quote me on this, I'll have to go back and listen to the podcast whenever it becomes available.

sparky

why is that funny????

AuthenticAndrew

I don't think KIRO or Bonneville likely appreciate their on air staff making straight faced attributions of virtue based on ethnicity, especially when it's an allusion to white supremacy. I laugh at their misfortune.

Brian

Dave said the drop in oil prices was due to Bush sending a Diplomat to Iran. I'm not sure if I buy that or the story that it was GW's move to open offshore drilling.

So if 3% of the world's oil is in the US and available for drilling isn't that a lot less than what would be available if the ban was lifted?

Why is it okay to let other countries trash their environments for our oil when we could do a cleaner job of obtaining our own resources? The old "not in my backyard" scenario?

Darcy burner sounded like a fool in that interview with Dave, "innovate our way out of the problem". Shove some innovation in your gas tank & see how far it gets you.

sparky

Why would there be more or less than 3% of the world's oil because we started drilling? That is like saying if you had a well in your backyard with 500 gallons of water in it, and you drilled 3 holes or 5 holes or 1000 holes, your well still only has 500 gallons. 3% of the world's oil in our backyard does not begin to meet the 25% we use. That is why you hear that drilling wont get us out of this.

I heard on the BBC that Russia is in the process of signing an agreement with Iran regarding oil production. To me, that means if we attack Iran, we end up messing with Russia. Sending an envoy to Iran is a smart thing to do if we want to be at the table to have any of that oil. It means, as Darcy says, we need to start becoming innovative and figure out other sources of fuel. We put men on the moon, and we are building a space station. I think we have more than enough brain power in this country to figure it out.

yesterday this Chris Bennett character who owns black radio stationsa and newspapers in Seattle came on Ron and Don and told them how the rat who killed James Paroline had been delivered to a church for arrest with NAACP backup so that the fellow wouldn't be harmed by police. What JOKE. trying to play the race card. I watch 48 Hours on A and E, where they follow real life homicide detectives around. The wanted killer just calls up and surrenders at th e police station, either with a lawyer or without one. The police are not going to shoot him at the police station. I'm rapidly getting sickened about how the usual suspects like Bennett are turning this into a bogus race issue and making up lies to protect the rat bastard suspect. Their latest spin is that Paroline choked and slapped the girls. Fortunately a neighbor caught almost thee whole hting on video. Don ONeill put this clown Bennett in his place when he tried to pull that race card bullshit. The rat bastard's mother served time for armed robbery. she called Dori's show with nothing but lies and excuses for her little darling.

Puget Sound

It is soooo funny to hear the 'can't drill our way out of this' crowd yammering on and on.
We don't just increase supply by drilling. We do other things such as nuclear and other alternative sources. All of this helps to increase demand.
Just having the speculators in the world market see us make a move in this direction has seen oil prices drop $15 bucks a barrel over the last three days.
If we keep falter we'll see the price go back up.

Puget Sound

"All of this helps to increase demand. "

yeah, i caught it. should read supply.

man, i need to go to the gym.

KS

Keep saying that you'll not bring the vote on ending the no-drilling offshore moratorium to the floor for a vote, Pelosi, while oil prices have gone down $15/barrel since the executive moratorium was lifted and you may be the biggest influence on the election. The dirty secret is that lifting the offshore drilling moratorium would pass in the House, if brought to a vote..

Many people are getting pissed off at your Marxist tactics and if that's the way you want to be, keep it up and we'll see how you and fellow Democrats do in November. Sen. Obama seems to feel the same way as Pelosi which is a total outrage ! Soon the masses will see that the motto for the Obama campaign will be "Change for the worse you can believe in".

Tommy008

former Microsoft brat Darcy Burner came on Dave Ross and had the generosity of spirit to say that she thinks John McCain "PROBABLY does love his country". Probably? What kind of a snide, snotty little punkass thing is that to say. She just blew it with me with her little cheapass comment. I wouldn't vote for her, even if i move to her district, whic won't happen . I'd write in Don McNeill

nevets

But just as the prices were coming down, look what Pelosi and Reid did, they went out and said the areas are off limits. Any bets that oil prices rise in the next few days because of these remarks.

nevets

And did you hear Darcy Burners solution to winning the war in Afghanistan. She said

"we need to do it like we won the west, we didn't go in there guns drawn we used diplomacy."

If I am hearing her right, she wants to put all the Afgahns on reservations. Thats how the west was won

nevets

How come Dave Ross does not have his interview with Darcy Burner on his site at mynorthwest.com. Am I looking in the wrong place, anyone else see it there or has he taken it down at her request because she blew it and showed no class.

coiler for Gregoire

I thought you had some lawns to mow, nevets?

KAHONEEZ

Corporate Ross has made a lot of ludicrous claims, one is the left said there is no oil off shore , when it has been widely publicized, it will take 6 - 10 years for oil to come to market as Gas , besides nobody has suggested there was no oil off shore or in Anwar, opposition is bcs of environmental reason and 10 yrs to get gas .
Also failed to acknowledge car makers have little incentive for Battery cars , bcs of the billions made from car repair industry (as caller pointed out)and collusion with oil companies. Nobody can be THAT naive or it's just an aCT , to cover his lapdog corporatism .
We'll he believed Cheney when he claimed Iraq War , had nothing to do with OIL. Ya right Dave. shtick is very transparent and getting old .

i am not sure what to think about this. its not funny.
