right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

Comments

Cory

Miller is smart and funny. Perhaps, the lone voice of sanity in Hollywood. Great add for Seattle

dana

I might actually listen, which I haven't done (to KVI) in years. He may be right wing but I doubt he's a Big Pants disciple; Miller actually has some WIT.

Upton

Miller is washed up, on the downside of his career. Obviously, I won't be listening to him because he's turned into a pig.

joanie

The 9-12 slot means he'll compete with Ross and Hartmann. I tried to like Miiller a long time ago but his style got boring after a while.

And as for Jon and Dana, I don't listen to talk radio to hear Hollywood.

Brian

Good move!
Now there will be something other that Dave to listen to in the mornings, Dr.Laura is a skank.

Tommy008

finally some Ross Relief. do your ealize that this annoying Prius-driving elitist started on KIRO when I believe the Seafirst Tower ("the box the Space Needle came in") was still te tallest building in town. We've moved on.

Coiler

He didn't last long on tv. His shtick grew old on SNL and CNBC. He did a 'dori' after 9/11 and found another meal ticket.

"In recent years, Miller has become known for his conservative political opinions, emphasizing a hawkish stance on U.S. military action and campaigning for Republican presidential candidates."

"He appeared on Star Search, where he lost out to fellow comedian Sinbad after the two tied with judges' scores, but Sinbad won with a higher studio audience approval rating."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Miller

chucks

And where is Sinbad today?

Duffman

Appearing infrequently at the EQC.

Coiler

probably in your VHS collection. ROTFLMAO?

Mango

It's just pathetic he has to go on billo's show every week. I like him on the radio but the TV appearances are painful.

KS

Miller would be boring to progressives in general because he doesn't spout their talking points - his conservative side shows periodically. His guests are good and he is socially liberal, which means he will have an array of guests from both sides of the political spectrum.

I have a yearning to listen to Tom Leykis or Adam Corolla every so often when I am not in the mood to listen to the standard political talk show. Miller is a cross between the generally apolitical free format as exhibited by Leykis and Corolla and the standard talk show. It will be an improvement for listeners over Dr. Laura.

    pacific nw talk stations

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
