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.

It's true that the hearings are "important" but it's also realy uninformative. We know Democrates will ask him brain teasers, Republicans will ask him how come he's so cool, all of his answers will be technical and evasive and he won't be honest because honesty shows partiality. It's money back guaranteed to be pointless and boring.


for anyone curious (and please, don't troll), it would appear mike webb is continuing his talk show at his website in the same time slot.

"GOP Designated Liar Sean Hannity"???

You give this man way too much credit. I don't even think the GOP machine is completely comfortable with this lunatic. While it's no doubt true his fax number is on their list to receive the GOP talking points each day, I don't hear anyone but the most rabid conservative fanatics agreeing to be on his show (think Bob Dornan to Dick Cheney). Intellectually, Hannity is a bit of a joke, kind of like the school yard bully who pounces on every weakling with the zeal that his overbearing personality can dominate. He never takes on anyone even remotely capable of defending themselves. Most likely because he got his rear-end kicked up between his ears the last time he tried.

I recommend you grant him the oblivion he so richly deserves.


Since the Corporation for Public Broadcasting only recieves about 15% of their funds from the government, why not just get the government out of it altogether? I'm sure the listeners and viewers of CPB programming would gladly pick up such a small amount of slack to preserve their preferred stations. Then we wouldn't have to worry about political pressure from appointees or from Congress on the independence of CPB.

And heck, people might be able to get a free DVD of the 3 Tenors with those additional donations.


Hmm...do I want the 3 Tenors or The Spin Stops Here doormat?

Andrew sez, "We know Democrates will ask him brain teasers, Republicans will ask him how come he's so cool, all of his answers will be technical and evasive and he won't be honest because honesty shows partiality. It's money back guaranteed to be pointless and boring."

With a 15 year track record on the Federal bench, it's pretty clear how he stands. "Technical and evasive" is just more whining from the fringe left. The more Ted Kennedy snivels and makes an ass out of himself on TV, the easier this becomes.


Well whatever the case may be it's so predictable you feel as though you are watching a rerun.


The hearings can also be streamed or podcast on C-Span.org, but that requires more tech-ware than the good old radi-yo. Kudos (always) to NPR!
