right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing

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.

The one good thing about Mr. Sharansky's post is that it shows you how one can do propaganda (which is all Mr. Sharansky's board is good at).

The minnow implies that Ms. Burner comitted reckless driving and somehow gamed the system, when in fact she was simply cited for Speed to Fast for Conditions in a minor fender bender, and the ticket was handled like any other.

Like almost anything else over at SoundPolitics, no substance, all puff, but if it helps mislead one person, it has done its part.


Reichert will get his dick knocked in the dirt...


Driving too fast for conditions and causing an accident.

Is this the type of leadership we want to send to D.C. and representing our state. We need role models not reckless fools going around causing accidents representing us.

blathering michael

oh please. Stefan's throwing stuff at the wall to see if it sticks is just pathetic, amateur toadsucking, especially when it comes to traffic tickets and pet licenses. Me? I wanna candidate who's a real human with some of the real life experiences and human foibles to prove she's not been cut out of some rolled-out sweet dough whipped up by a political party. Sheriff Dave is a one-dimensional cartoon of himself caught in the bind of having to act like a hero in the flaming comic book of the bad guy who created him.


Steve says:Driving too fast for conditions and causing an accident.

Snout replies: i hope you are kidding steve. MR. Reichert only took TWENTY FUCKING years to catch a guy who wrote to the cops about the crime

Ted Smith

snoutcounter said MR. Reichert only took TWENTY FUCKING years to catch a guy who wrote to the cops about the crime

But he took full credit for everyone's work in mere microseconds.

They don't call him The Racist Reicherthole for nothing.



While I assume you are being sarcastic, I would be remised to not point out that the current occupants of the White House have one Drunk Driving conviction and one death due to careless driving between the two of them.

And Dick Cheney has something like three Drunk Driving convictions.


Not to take away from the lovely Steve gang-bang (like Shark, Steve likes it rough). But are you sure your right about the lawsuit Mike?

"...and got much publicity around the frivolous lawsuit Democrats filed against Governor Christine Gregoire's 2004 election."

Did you mean the GOP? (It might be just me, & the Dems just might have done something & I missed it.)

But I really thought the frivolous lawsuit was the one Rossi filed in conservative Chelan county, and then a conservative Chelan cty judge tossed him out on his ass (saying "overturning this election would be the epitome of judicial activism")

OH! and then conservative Sam Reed signed the election results.

Yeah, the Nurse-shark sure got that story right. DOH!


JBD, Good point, So you want more of the same from congress and the White House. I would expected you would want a change there instead. My Bad.

Lazy Murrow

And we all know that in Sharkanskyland getting a speeding ticket is far, far, worse than beating up your mother.


Driving to fast for conditions is NOT reckless driving as Stephan insinuates. If you are driving in the wet/snow but still under the posted limit, lose control (slide/spin/can't stop in time)and wreck you will likely be cited for this offense. It's a non event. I was on the receiving end of a wreck from this cause. The guy that hit me (slid in the wet on a corner) got a ticket and we drove off. No big deal.

David Tatelman

Well Dori still apparently reads Sharky and takes him seriously. He might be Stephen's last fan.


My money is on Reichert - let the mud slinging begin ! I like his stand on securing the borders for one - if you wish to call him a racist, a comment like that would show one's ignorance and racism. I have no opinion on what's her name - she's just trying get the jump on slinging the mud...it will backfire.



You need to read the story. It is the GOP that is flinging mud.
