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.

Love your writing, thanks for doing it. You make me laugh in every single one of your articles.

"piss-in-your-pants-to-stay-warm partisanship"



MH sez "Every day they stoke the indignant backlash about the intolerant, selfish, elitist, Ivy-overeducated, sushi-eating, bus riding, extra-virgin olive-oiled, French speaking, irreverent, vegan, religion hating, wine-bibbing, peace-marching, brie-guzzling, hippy Seattleites who build their monorails, lesbian art museums and stadiums using taxes they shake down from the middle class of the rest of the state." I think you left off limpwristed, lefty, girly men. But that about sums up the city of Seattle, a second class city trying to run with the big dogs. In your rants about the upcoming failure to be of I-912, is there any mention that the iniative does not provide for any traffic relief? What does the .18 cents a gallon collected now do since it also does not provide for any relief? I-912 will fail for just that reason. People want traffic relief and until they get it, this extra tax is DOA. I suppose Carlson and Wilbur must suffer with traffic on their commutes over over the water to the east side. Tim Eyman is the hero of the fight against the government bending us over the hitching post. I-695 corrected the biggest screwing and the money didn't even go to any highway projects. The state would have gotten a higher fee than the $30 but they shot their mouth off and told us how stupid we were and they paid the penalty. BTW, do you still pay the old higher tab fees? Or, do you slink around and pay the lower one? The state will probably still collect the excess if you wished to pay it. The governor who stuck it in our butt with all the new taxes will be outta of Olympia in 3 more years for all her lies. Seattle has dropped to the 16th most liberal city and the reservation continues to shrink. As long as your solution to problems is calling people names and not putting out an agenda to the public that gives them something for their money, you lefties are doomed to repeat failure.


Listening to John Carlson hosting Bruce Chapman and David Goldstein yesterday talking about the Discover Institute and Creative Design, I wanted to grab Mr. Chapman and Mr. Carlson by their lapels and ask them: "Do you really believe any of this? Do you actually believe the earth was created in 7 days and that dinosaurs and human beings lived together 5,000 years ago? Or are you just trying to drive liberals crazy?"

I think the answer is obvious. These people don't believe half the stuff they say. It's just a cynical way of exploiting the fears of those who are more ignorant than they are. In the same way that Republicans have capitalized on bigotry against minorities and uppity city folks, they are cynically using the anti-tax movement and the religious beliefs of some weird Christians to further their own political agenda. Look what they did to Clinton, constantly harassing him so that he couldn't use his time to carry out his program.




from digby blog:

The biggest sickness in our politics is this top down, elitist mentality in which people are fed a diet of information, entertainment, products and ideas that are focus grouped, soulless and commercial --- and which are then filtered through a ruling media class that is so psychologically cramped, so emotionally sterile, so stuck in their own feedback loop that they are presenting a totally distorted version of reality. It's important that we look elsewhere for wisdom and leadership.


And Lump never calls anyone names?


Chris sez "And Lump never calls anyone names?" Only those that absolutely deserve it and even then I take easy. Some of the stuff on this blog is absoutely hateful vile crap. And, Chris, you're one of them with your foul mouth and writings.


If its so hateful and vile as you claim without giving an example, then why are you still here?


Chris sez "If its so hateful and vile as you claim without giving an example, then why are you still here?" An example? Read your own past quotes. I'm here because there are some great posts on this blog and even the head blatherer manages once in a while to hit a home run. I like to form my opinions and add to my knowledge by reading and trying to understand both sides of a subject. I hope my response is simple and easy for you to understand. When I have a battle of wits, I prefer to do it with an ARMED person.


I barely touched you, you're not planning on leaving like Duane did, are you


just a sec. BTW..I need to do a shameless act. "Shane! I mean Duane, come back Duane! Come back!!


Chris sez "I barely touched you, you're not planning on leaving like Duane did, are you" Nah, I'm sticking around. I want to see if you pass the WASL to you can graduate.


I'm still waiting to see 'freedom on the march" in Iraq
