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

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Al Franken: the senator from talk radio... :

Comments

sparky

He is very hardworking and takes it all very very seriously. He refuses requests to appear on talk shows.

Coiler

Don't mess with Al. He even helped security take down a insane protester at a Dean rally. He is one of us...

joanie

A senator with great timing. You made your point, Al. Funny, isn't it, how details get lost, facts get omitted, and confusion reigns on the right. Thinking in boxes . . . intolerance abounds.

My local Whole Foods has been taken over by dykes, of the bull variety. Bull dyke city. Unattratctive, often lumbering, huge women, downright butt ugly in several cases. Working as checkers, stocking shelves with butch, clipped hair and backwards ball caps on , projecting a lot of cocky attitude.. It's obvious to me what is happenign here. In my opinion, one of their ilk recently made it into the manager's hat there and is evening up the score. All the attractive, normal women who used to work there as recently as last winter and spring are gone now. This new manager obviously wanted to even some old scores over all the times she had been turned down for a job because she was unattractive and unfeminine. And of course use her postion to do some social engineering and favor her group in hiring at the expense of others. I believe thats called discrimination, last time i checked. I want to keep buying their poultry and meats among other things so i guess ill just have to grin and bear it as i make a rapid entrance and exit from the emporium. i can always shop at the Westlake Whole Foods. No more browsing through the local store, that's for sure . My stomach can't take it.

Dr. McCormick

im certain there are people on this blog who know exactly what and where i'm speaking of, and are nodding their heads and muttering in agreement right now.

Dr Scholl's

Putz will support you in your dilemma. Chucks too

The store manager

You might want to wear a cup, just in case dr. McC.

joanie

nodding their heads and muttering in agreement right now.

They're called bobbleheads.

KS blathering for the halibut

The news and broadcast media are a bunch of immoral propagandists for the left wing - Europe and Canada do a much better job of reporting what is really happening here - while our own POS media plays hide the sausage... The op-ed below describes a symptom of this crap continuously going on quite well...

"The news media has the moral obligation of informing the people so they may become better participants in their government. We must never cower at reminding the news media that they work for us. The sad truth is that the Internet has made it easier for carnival barkers to masquerade as professional journalists. I refuse to sit numb in front of my computer in awe of someone with a large audience seeking only to advance their self-interest at the expense of truth. I encourage my fellow Americans to take 10-15 minutes a day to work towards learning what people and sources tell the truth. Seek out new sources, ask around, and dig a little deeper. Or, as a good friend once told me, “pull on the thread and see where it takes you.”

There was no story here other than a carnival barker using innuendo on social media to stir up interest in his illegal republishing of copyright-protected material. Having operated various online publishing and social media ventures over the years, I’ve learned that sadly this is a method taught to many users of social media.

Jon, may I call you Jon? Jon, there can be no doubt that you currently occupy an important position in Nevada’s political news media ecosystem. Your subconscious default-position of hating Republicans does you a disservice as we saw with this event. I’d like to see you straighten up and fly right (no pun intended) so you can actually help the political process instead of hurting it. Best to you Sir.

    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....
