Sigh... another limp-nut, candy arse photographer. "I'm going to press charges" blah, blah, blah.

I'm not the biggest fan of Mike's by any stretch of the imagination, but peoples jelousy of his talent is very telling.

gusto and poor

Webb may be crazy, but he is One of Us. All good liberals need to support Mike during his extended meltdown.


oh yeah, our great first amendment champ tries to clock a media guy doing his job. What a nut case! I hope they come and get him for this one.


Gusto: you're no liberal and neither is Webb. He's just a pissed off felon. He's embarrassing.


I'm not the biggest fan of Mike's by any stretch of the imagination, but peoples jelousy of his talent is very telling.

So he assaults people for being jealous of his talent? You are a moron aren't you?


Ugh - Brian Maloney is congratulating you on your scoop - back-handed praise, indeed...

gusto and poor

Thanks for telling me what I am, little mac. I had no idea, you schmuck.

love always,

Gusto with the must-o

Ben Schroeter

What an idiot. I'm a big lefty and all, but jeez, what a frickin' republican thing to do (hitting a photographer.)


Watching Mike Webb spiral down into his insane personal hell is the most exhilarating train wreck seen in Seattle radio since the fall of Mike Siegel.


Mike's fall is sad and pathetic.

Still, I wonder if he was trying to keep his picture out of the media because he is worried about his personal safety- someone going after him because he is gay.

I know, I know, he carries a gun... Still, I'm just trying to understand what made him snap. Maybe the idea of having his picture in the media pushed him over the edge.


...or being exposed at a nutter.

gusto and poor

Seems odd that Webb doesn't want his photographed published when he has appeared on television before.

Webb Ahkbar


"Still, I wonder if he was trying to keep his picture out of the media because he is worried about his personal safety- someone going after him because he is gay."

Good point. He is, after all, the only gay man in Seattle.


After reading Mikes version of the events I can only conclude that he plans to put on an Insanity Defense.


and, instead of my insertion here (oooh, lookie there, I made a bad pun), this spot should be reserved for ReRa.

c'mon, Brian in Lacey - I know it's you - perhaps you could do a Brian Says/Red Rachel Says type comment each time, being your sane-ol' self for your part, and letting ReRa rant in hers (well, your other part)...

And that leaves another opportunity for a bad pun! I like to share.


Brian In Lacey

All I can say is ! The StybleHead its not funny ! Its really bad radio! Hooty hoo !


Not much good to say about Mike, huh?

I had a love/hate relationship with him but am so over him. He always seemed to have an anger management problem and I guess he still does.

stodge charger

Maybe the photographer was a republican...



would that make it ok to assault someone, if they differed politically from the assailant?

/just wanting to know where you stand


The Comittee to Name the Bastard is proud to name Mike Webb as it's choice for the 2006 Lying Phony Bastard Award. The new award will be given out every 4th of July weekend to the biggest creepin Seattle for the preceding 12 months. Congratulations, Mike- you can claim your prize, a pink pair of boxing gloves, with the award title stenciled on them, from me, in the County Courthouse Hallway.

Of course it would. We must exterminate the Republicans. We cannot fail.


Jealous of his talent??? Let's not get carried away now....


baba booey,

At least you are honest about your hatred and genocidal tendencies.

Does the same proposition work in reverse for you (i.e. Republicans advocating extermination of Democrats)? You'd have no problem with that either, right? Or any faction fighting with their ideological opponents?

WRT Webb, he's clearly been unhinged for a long time, and it is all culminating in a paranoia-laced implosion.


Ann Coulter talks about exterminating Liberals all the time..does that bother you, Chunkie?



Yes, I repudiate all talk of exterminating one's political adversaries.

Now, that said, although Ann Coulter is a firebrand who frequently employs excessive rhetoric, I'm not sure has actually said that, but I'm sure you'll be happy to provide a quote



We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.
[Town Hall, September 14, 2001]

Coulter's controversial comment about Murtha came after she was asked at the RightWingNews site to comment on the ex-Marine who now opposes the Iraq War. She said of Murtha: "The reason soldiers invented 'fragging.'" This is a term describing soldiers killing their own officers, originally in Vietnam. [Editor and Publisher]

Coulter on killing Bill Clinton:

(Responding to a question from a Catholic University student about her biggest moral or ethical dilemma) "There was one time I had a shot at Clinton. I thought 'Ann, that's not going to help your career.'"

Universal Press Syndicate columnist Ann Coulter "joked" during a Thursday speech that liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens should be poisoned. "We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee," Coulter said at Philander Smith College in Little Rock, Ark. "That's just a joke, for you in the media."

oh yeah we are just laffin our butts off, Ann


Thanks Sparky,

I'm not specifically a fan of Coulter, and haven't read her books. I've seen clips of her in interviews though.

I think the worst one is the poison in creme brulee. That's certainly over the top.

The middle two are dangerously close to the line, but there is still a difference between those snide inferences and the declarative sentence "we must exterminate the Republicans" shown above by a poster.

The first one, is describing the Taliban in Afghanistan, so unless some of the lefties want to make common cause with them, there is no real comparison.

Anyway, I'm all for vigorous, yet civil debate without the extreme rhetoric, personally.

stodge charger

Our side is winning...


Well, I agree that Ann is over the top and I think most of what she says is calculated to get a rise out of libs, which she does on a regular basis.

I disagree that saying we should go into a country and kill the leaders and convert them to Christianity is not comparible. It is all bull shit.
Unfortunately, there is a large group of American "morans" who believe everything she says as the truth. That is where the damage is done...
