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.

Heh..that explains the cases of it in the Eastlake lobby.

So Michael Hood, I read your smear of Savage (Weiner), and can only wonder what proof you offer of the drunken appearance or anything else you claim? You neglected to mention in your liberal slam, the he has written THREE best selling books in a row! As usuall, you cannot be specific in regard to which point you disagree with Savage or point out a better solution to the world crisis. Why I'll wager you don't even believe there exists any sort of crisis. Queers demanding special rights, Islamofacists vowing to destroy all "infidels", lawyers allowing car theft to be just a "Joke"! If you think this world is in fine shape in the hands of the lawyers, you deserve to perish at their hands. In any case, I agree that a nation is defined by its borders, language, and its culture. Which don't you agree with and why? I say that if we don't defend these basic ingredients to our society which made us so strong to begin with, then we will fall to those who don't respect our way of life. We don't need any more diversity. We have too much allready! Eric

Eric: didja click on the link? or carry your lunch?

Eric T

Blath Mike, Do you have the wherewithal to express your disagreement in an intelligent manner, or are you truly the knuckle-dragging fool that you libs call sensable intellectuals with whom you cannot either understand nor debate! Come on propeller head! Borders, language, culture. Which description of a country don't you agree with? Come on Blithering Mike, which is it. Where do you stand when you send your slutty 12 year old daughter to school? Don't have one? Well it really doesn't matter, because the other people who still have their brains left know what I'm speaking of. Liberalism is a failed insidious proposition of which you unenlightened individuals have no inkling of its origins. Want to know more? Buy the book fool! Eric

Eric T

Mike the blithering idiot. Should I sign up for this "Salon" crap? Send money for more socialistic propaganda? You still offer no proof of your allegation regarding Savage being "drunken", allthough I see no problem with enjoying a cocktail or two or three now and then. Of course, you Starbuck sipping, reefer toking, opera loving, artsy types are soo much more sophisticated than those patriotic, war minded defenders of the liberty that allows you fools to act and speak the way you do! Who is your supplier for the smoke? Care to share that? Well it doesn't matter anyway since pot is really legal here in Seattle. It does however, illustrate your hypocrasy. In any case Blithering fool, again I ask, which part of Borders, Language, or Culture do you not agree need preserved in order to maintain our countrys' sovereign status? This will take extra time since liberals have been brainwashed by their single mothers or other liberal influences for so many years. However, I can assure you that there are many of us who are ready to teach their grandchildren the errors of their foolish liberal collegues for the past twenty or thirty years. My daughter looks forward to this new enlightenment for her children as she and her husband are tired of this immoral march toward destruction. We intend to take the country back and away from your type of backward thinking. The media is the first target and has allready been identified as a major impedance towards the future of the world. They will be the first to be brought to justice. The law profesion will be next. All must pay in the end for their errors. The pendulum has swung! You are now the old hat! Come on. Jump on the band wagon! Thats what you sheeple do. I'll get back to you later on what you should do next! Eric the Barbaric


You give the Erics of the world a bad name.

Mike Webb

All wrong on the ratings and the Rockstar. Company is owned by his son. Should he be guilty by "association" or a family he can't choose?

You can't measure my ratings without looking at the midnight hour which always completey re-weights the book -- always in double digits. By next week, we will know my numbers. What crystal ball is your 12 year old daughter staring into to discover my ratings?

blathering michael

Welcome Mike: I always see you lurkin' around here, I'm really glad you stopped to talk. I'm afraid you're wrong about RockStar--according to the famous and excellent Salon piece, "America's Laziest Fascist" the old homophobe, helped formulate the RockStar. Most believe he gave seed money for young Russell's endeavor and has a large interest in the company.

"The 30-something Weiner is the founder of RockStar, an energy drink that he developed with his dad, drawing on Savage's previous career as a Marin County herbalist and ethnobotanist named Michael Weiner. RockStar's herbal liver-cleansing formula is supposed to enable drinkers to "party like a rock star," which presumably means drinking and doping."

KIRO did really awesome this Book--not sure about you, yet----send those hourlies on over when you get'em.
xo Michael


Rockstar is a family business. Russ formulated the drink with the help of his herbalist father Michael Savage. His motherJanet Weiner handles the company's finances. Russ Weiner has never disavowed his father's anti-gay agenda. Russ once loudly proclaimed, "Who's heterosexual and proud?" "If you're not, hopefully you will be soon!"

The Weiner family are virulent anti gay bigots. Webb supports a company owned by people who would just as soon see him nailed to a fence.


I absolutely love the guy.


mike savage is the best i've ever heard and if i could listen to hime 24/7, i would!!! more people should have his passion for our country and for simply what is right and what is wrong. we need many more like him, only in power instead of on the radio. he'd fix what's wrong with this country within a year!

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.

      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).
