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.

Them's some fancy words you've strung together.

But here's the bottom line, in the latest rating period, KTTH is ahead of KVI in the 25-54 demo total week.

If the key to ratings success is local, local, local then how come Rush Limbaugh is still the highest rated talk show in Seattle book after book.

How come NPR does so well in drive time. It sure ain't those local rip-n-read wire service drop-ins twice an hour.

And how come for the last 4 years Howard Stern has had blockbuster morning ratings in Seattle? He is not local. He is not even live. The show is tape-delayed by 3 hours.

You should try to throw in a few facts to balance your poorly written blather.

p.s. Don't try standup. You ain't funny.


The "pissed off white guys" you refer to will always vote Republican. They're the ones feeding and feeding off the madness in this unvote nonsense.

"Stupid white men" indeed brainwashed by Limbaugh.

Ding: Did you actually read my poorly written fancy words? I don't think so...You're changing the subject. Rush or no Rush, KTTH is in the toilet...the market is pulling the chain for a flush...It's a programming fuck-up--you have the numbers, you know it's true.
Don't be shooting the messenger--we're here to help...we were just trying to make you laugh to keep you from crying.


If you're really trying to make me laugh, please see earlier post on avoiding stand-up. Comedy is not in your arsenal.

If KTTH is in the toilet, where does that put KVI? KVI is below KTTH in the ratings. That's my point.

One other point on your "local, local, local" drumbeat: KVI's best numbers, by far, are for Coast to Coast. That's a syndicated 10 p.m. show. It's not local.

In fact, if you remove Coast to Coast from the ratings battle, and just compare KTTH and KVI weekdays from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. (that's what the advertisers buy) KTTH is almost TWO FULL SHAREPOINTS ahead of KVI. But I don't want to interrupt your argument with any facts.

Ding is lying through his teeth. KTTH and KIRO are hurting. Expect some big changes over there soon. By the way I think this blog is pretty funny. It's pretty right on, too--wish it wasn't, sometimes.


The blogs are pointing out the failures of this election. I am glad I was not in the precinct when the dead walked in to vote. It must have smelled pretty bad. The question is why do all the Democratic controlled elections areas have so much human error. Look at Wisconsin Election. Same problems as King County. Just about line for line. THousands of vote more than voters. Could there be something happening accross the country. At least the Feds are investigating The Wisconsin case. I wonder if they will start investigating in KC. Do you really want to see that happen. Keep the elections clean. Why do Democrats oppose showing an ID to vote? COuld it be it allows someone a chance to vote more than once. We know it happened in KC. Individual Fraud is rampant with the Hate Bush Crowd. Win at any cost. You have to Admit Bush has won every election for President. No Supreme Court was involved in the first election. OUtside of telling the State Supreme Court What the real standards are for an election. Democrats dont believe in standards why do they always say every vote must count. Could it be that they know some people who voted more than once. WHy must every vote count. If I voted and voted a second time would that not be illegal. I think so. SO why dont they say every legal vote must be counted instead of every vote. Makes you think.
