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.

Per the Google Translation Machine:
Assitalia NA is a member of the group insurance company Assicurazioni Generali and operating on the Italian market

but yeah, what Fremont said...

Puget Sound Blathers

this is not a surprise...
hypocrisy is thy name...too damn funny


Bla'M you need to send this to a webite that features funny signs around the world. Many are not suitable for a family blog, however :)

blathering michael

BlatherWatch is NOT a family blog, unless you're counting my family who are a well-known pack of heathens...

PugetSound Blathers

The 'Blatherwatch Family' is less like the Walton Family and more like the Manson Family...
but yeah, chock full of Heathens for sure.


You know that Teh Won is in serious trouble when he losses NASCAR fans and Chris Matthews at the same time.


Obama never had the mouth breathing redneck vote to begin with.


NASCAR fans are not mouth breathing rednecks you stupid fuck. Many NASCAR fans are Teamsters, Longshoremen, grocery clerks, etc.
They are the lunchbox democrats. Of course you elite Seattle liberal pukes, that likely have never been to Kent Pacific Raceways or the oval at Monroe just make your ignorant assumptions based solely on the darkness you see while your head is firmly up your ass.

Puget Sound Blathers

if it would've been Laura Bush getting booed at a union teacher meeting the usual suspects would be all over themselves about 'truth to power' etc and thinking it was a good thing.

it's classism. the seattle progressives don't care much for nascar (when's the last time you saw an audi or a volvo in one of those?) folks. and they have no idea what let alone where the Pac Raceway is located.

i do think it is bad manners to boo the first lady. i didn't like it when folks booed Laura Bush and I don't like it when they boo Michelle Obama. First Lady's are suppose to be non political symbols. Speaking of which, the greatest First Lady of all time was Jackie Kennedy. Recall her role as she epitomized grace under pressure during the events of Nov 22, 1963, and subsequent funeral of JFK.


When was Laura Bush booed at a union meeting? When was Laura Bush ever booed at all?

Helen  Hokinson

"First Lady's are suppose to be non political symbols" Oh dear me, get Eleanor Roosevelt on the horn straight away, I must inform the bridge club.

Guess you missed the Obama Inauguration?

It was in all the papers, Sparkles.

Puget Sound Blathers

Same thing happened to First Lady Hillary Clinton here in Seattle circa 1994.

That wasn't right, either.


"First Lady's are supposed to be non political symbols." Pretty sure we are past women being symbols Putz, but I agree with the rest of your post.

Puget Sound Blathers

not 'women' per se, it is the office.

if we had a woman president and the husband was the 'first gentleman' it would be the same concept.

Helen  Hokinson

I haven't seen the first man in the governors mansion booed recently.


First ladies should not be booed, no matter how much their husbands are loathed.

This president is pulling out all of the stops using children, first ladies, occupiers aka occutards, union bosses, welfare recipients, movie stars, foreign dictators,etc. as political symbols. However, when it comes to leadership, he is flaccid.


Technically, it would have been more accurate to say;

First ladies should not be booed, no matter how much their husbands' policies are loathed.

Since they or whoever don't personally know the president, but their policies are what touch many.

Helen  Hokinson

What is an "occutard"? I work with developmentally disabled groups and find your labeling offensive.


I was not referring to the disabled groups you work with. BTW, I found the actions of the Occupiers offensive and clueless and wasteful of our tax money for extended OT pay that they make necessary for the police. I don't have a problem in changing the reference to Occupier-parasites per your request and deleting the term Occutard.

BTW, I find the term Teabagger offensive.


Ms Hokinson, I don't recall seeing the first gent doing anything in public beyond standing with his wife. I have never seen him out being all preachy about what we should feed our kids or any other none of governments business issues.
Why would anybody boo a man that minds his own business?


Occu-tard is actually a fitting name after reading this;



"What is an "occutard"? I work with developmentally disabled groups and find your labeling offensive"

Yeah, well, all of the 7 billion of us find some shit offensive, what's your point?

10 stupid comments about OCW

KS blathering for the halibut

there are probably some well intentioned normal people strewn in the Occupiers amongst the mentally ill and homeless and I don't mean recent college grads, typically jobless who think they can change the world...


Herman Cain is one of them


Great article by Krugman


Part of it wasn't bad, but the other part was Krugman as usual showing his Keynesian ideological misguidedness.

secret shopper.....

i ran quickly , as soon as the double glass doors opened, manned by red-vested nerds in santa hats. It didn't matter that i wasn't exactly first in line , i sprinted out of line and passed scores of people without shame, manhandling an old woman out of the way to get into the door. The nerds did nothing, intimidated by my superior size and strength. I made a quick windsprint to electronics, grabbede a cart, and spied my prize- a single 35 inch Toshiba wiht built in DVD player. Some of my insider sources at the store had alerady informed me only one of these would be for sale on the day of black. Not taking any chances, i slipped on my gas mask and sprayed a wide perimiter of pepper spray around me as i loaded the large tv into my cart......


"…Then there pundits like Ed Schultz. Do you watch “The Ed Show” on MSNBC? Of course you don’t. No one does. The only reason people watch “The Ed Show” is they’re working out in a hotel gym and they can’t find a staff member to change the channel to ESPN."

This from GQ magazine as they rate the least influential people in America. Obama is at number 25.
