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.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference KIRO anchor quizzes governor gregoire about botox use:

Dory was gawking at TV news anchors who made such gaffs, noting that they in the radio business pride themselves on being quick on their feet. A rare lapse to be sure.

I like how Chris reffered to Jason by name there at the very end. She's pure class.

After the KOMO homos incident and the repeated bitch slapping of TBTL with sports pre-emptions I'm wondering if their isn't a culture of male chauvinism in the medium.

joanie

There's no botox under those little sagging wrinkles. How old is she anyway? I think she's attractive but there ain't no botox there.

Now, Nancy Pelosi...

BTW, I read that Pelosi has given Conyers free reign to start investigating. I wonder what pardons will come down tomorrow?

Puget Sound

pardons tomorrow (the 21st) ? well, that would be pragmatic on the part of President Obama. W had the Repubs knock it off when he took over. Obama won't allow Pelosi et al to screw it up or set it up for him in 2017 to be investigated to death.

but today is too beautiful a day to be worried about that stuff. today we have the orderly transition of power, the first african-american president, and the start of a new day.

lets wish president obama the best. the better he does the better for america.

it is a new day.

pink by another name

No amount of makeup or botox can make this queen of washington look good. My dick goes soft just looking at her ugly mug.

AuthenticAndrew

She's a governor not your jack-off material.

Where do all these conservative perverts come from?

Coiler

They come from the GOP. Grand Old Perverts.

WILD BILL

GOOD GOD, much ado about nothing. Nada. Didn't Dave Ross ask Kerry if he was using botox in a live 2006 interview? Or was it Uncle Al? Somebody did. Kerry said no when it was so obvious that he had some kind of work done to that mopey mug. Leave Jason alone, and take your little I demand a written apology creed and shove it. These are the same people who sigh heavily and fidget in the QFC line. Let's see, you're standing in a modern, heated, stocked to the gills store and you're getting your organic nards in a knat cuz you gots to stand supporting your heiney for three extra minutes. Seattle "liberals", what a bunch of rarified farts. Let's research it with a pro, and if she had botox and lied, then she's a liar. "We have no defecit," she said before the election "We have a six-billion dollar shortfall," she said after winning. Somebody's a liar, and somebody has to betaken to account. A liar, no fuzzy wuzzy gray.

AuthenticAndrew

You shop at QFC? You elitist and sexist.

chucks

You gotta shop at QFC if you want bacon flavored salt.
Yummmmmm.
If that woman paid for botox, she needs to get a refund.

WILD BILL

Got any other choices if you're on the North end of Capitol Hill, and ya prefer to stroll and ya shop everyday, ya schmutz :) Better than going to PCC and listening to some puff fart wail about their food allergies, or to the Capitol Hill safeway, where evrybody is seeking an audience for their enlightening drool, and demands eye contact and a fawkin smile. Lady, I'm just picking up a can of lard. The Bacon, Talk-Radio connection is well established by tbtl and the canned Yoder's variety.

Wild Bill

GOT any other options if you live on the North end of Capitol Hill, and ya prefer to stroll, and ya shop for supper everyday, ya shcmutz! :)It beats going to PCC and listening to some puff fart whine about their food allergies and pesticides. I've tried the hike to the Safeway, but too many yakking boobs clogging the aisles, oblivious to anybody else (probably all folks who are yakking about coming togther, but won't yield a fawkin inch.) As far as Trader Joe's or the organic places, too much pain listening to the dilrods. Anywhoo, glad to steer the threads to provincial grocery stores. Sorry, Rachel.

Puget Sound

Careful Chucks, Joanie herself has said she thinks one day Christine Gregoire will be President.

I've seen Christine up close once -we were in the lobby of Wild Ginger awaiting a fire alarm to stop- and She didn't look that bad. I just think the pics/lighting are not flattering.

nick

jason is a little fuck who can do no wrong in the eyes of Ursula who has entirely too much power for her somewhat wanting emotional temperament. He is a google-reporter, and lazy as a fat dog. they should keep him tightly scripted. when he's off the page he's terrible.

GANDHI

Dear WILD BILL…

WILD BILL, I’m going to object individually, to your knee jerk-Rush Limbaugh-esk reaction to Jason asking the Botox question:

WILD BILL: Didn't Dave Ross ask Kerry if he was using Botox in a live 2006 interview? Or was it Uncle Al? Somebody did. Kerry said no when it was so obvious that he had some kind of work done to that mopey mug.
RESPONSE: Dave Ross is a talk show host (and one of the best, brightest and respected in the industry) and in the realm or format of his show, Dave can be tongue and cheek.
However, with the position that Jason is in (when he’s filling in for, “It’s not about you,” Greg H.) is like reading the Washington Post or a paper of record. Thus, there is no room for rumors or rehearsed 1st grade humor.
WILD BILL: Leave Jason alone, and take your little I demand a written apology creed and shove it.
RESPONSE: NO AND NO. Obviously one of Dori’a listeners, that just like Dori, who have all the time in the world to research and educate himself, but can only come up with: “Leave Jason alone” and shove it. This proves that: “It is not necesssary to understand things in order to argue about them.”
WILD BILL: These are the same people who sigh heavily and fidget in the QFC line. Let's see, you're standing in a modern, heated, stocked to the gills store and you're getting your organic nards in a knat cuz you gots to stand supporting your heiney for three extra minutes.
RESPONSE: What?? Explain yourself WILD BILL! How do you know that I don’t have a self sustaining garden, volunteer at foodbank, vote for the person, not the party affilation and tithe 25% of my income to a local outreach/open door synagogue?
Seattle "liberals", what a bunch of rarified farts.
RESPONSE: Can someone else take over the response section?
Let's research it with a pro.
RESPONSE:
and if she had Botox and lied, then she's a liar.
RESPONSE:
"We have no deficit," she said before the election "We have a six-billion dollar shortfall," she said after winning.
RESPONSE:
Somebody's a liar, and somebody has to betaken to account.
RESPONSE:
A liar, no fuzzy wuzzy gray.

Nice topic interesting! Maybe this is the new KIRO "FM" sound. Is the morning news going to get more morning zoo? good entry thank you for sharing. Keep up the good work.
