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.
  • Orbusmax
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

I don't know anything about Bradley Marshall, but I would caution everyone against taking the Bar Association's word at face value. I have had a front-row seat. The Bar is an intensely political operation and the Bar's disciplinary office is run by the type of people who cause their own mothers to worry about sexual assault.

And in these cases, the Supreme court is nothing more than a rubber stamp. You don't become a judge in this State without the Bar's blessing.

It may well be that Marshall aggressively pursued a case and angered some government lawyer who had a buddy down at the Bar Association. It happens more often that one might suspect.


And institutions like the Bar Association and the American Medical Association are two peas in a pod. Self regulating . . . They always protect themselves first. I include the AMA partly because of their stand on tort reform - a protection of doctors over patients. They are good-old-boy networks formed to keep other people out of their business.


Interesting....I believe that Bill O'Falafal paid off his harassment accuser, and that was that. I wonder what the difference is?

What a mess.


Howard made O'Reilly look like a fool.



This one time... at KIRO... right after the "guy skipping with a knife, but shot cuz' he was black" thing, Brad Marshall called the 9pm-1am...host at the time...and offered to come in studio and debate him why it WAS a racial shooting.
So the...host at the time...says yes and gives him directions. Brad shows up in sweats, reeking of Courvoisier and he brings a "friend." The "friend" is a moderately attractive "law student" and Brad stammers "Don't mention her!" right as the mikes' go hot (it made it on the air).
60 rambling minutes later, Brad and the... host at the time...shake hands and agree that The Big Seattle Racial Divide has been solved. Brad fumbles for his card, can't find it, hands his keys to the "student" and says "They're in the briefcase in the trunk." With a glance of irritation, she dutifully gets carded out the door, and is back in a minute.
Brad says, "Call me, we should make this a show!"
And just like that, he's gone.

"So...there's that." (Jerry Lundegaard, "Fargo")


Sorry but I just had to say this to somebody before turning in for the night:

I hate George Bush!

The Anti KIRO

Sleep tight Joanie we have another long day ahead of us tomorrow listening to KIRO.


Bla'M, double check the name here, please...could it be Mark Larranaga?

      Games and sports-blabber

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.
