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.

Is ReRa getting the second ticket? You can't take LindaWertheimer...she has fleas!

Having Shiers do pre-game could cost them listeners. I'll listen if I remember but won't be tuning in to hear Shiers, that's for sure!

Actually, the battle was pretty lame and uninteresting last time. It became sort of an orgy of egos . . . boring. Sure you want to drive all the way to Everett for this?

 Joanie

Name that movie: "They came all the way from Tarzana."

Mark

who could be listening to that when the Stanley Cup is on KONG?

KS

So far, the "Battle" has been better than the last one, mainly because Mike Webb isn't there. Ron and Don aren't bad and Ron Reagan is articulate and NY Vinnie throws in some pizazz once in a while. There seem to be more populist views being aired and less polarization than the last time, which is better radio.

They all seem to agree that the Democrat Party are void of ideas and out of touch and unless they get some and take a different approach they'll probably have a tough time capturing the US Senate or House in the November elections. It is time for bipartisan majorities - look at the out of control spending, but moonbat leadership of a Howard Dean and the far left will make it tough road. Outside of the microcosm of liberal blogs - most people prefer moderation and a reasoned approach over reactionaries (both extreme left and right).

Illegal immigration might turn out to be a wedge issue, but some constructive ideas are being thrown out - too bad they can't bottle them and send them to Congress. Dave Ross is getting testy about it though.

joanie

I did just tune in and they are more energized than I've heard before. Dave is a little testy and tentative sounding. . . interesting. I sure don't like Dori but do agree with the prop tax thing . . . I don't believe people should be taxed out of homes. (I know there's a lot more to be said, but I won't say it!)

joanie

Ron Reagan is giving Dave a run for his money in the "common sense" and intellectual integrity categories. Wish I could hear more of him during the day. Actually, I guess it is good news that KIRO now has two interesting and intelligent hosts.

jt

Without Mike Webb the battle of the talk show host isn't worth listening to, in my opinion. Dave Ross to me is a light weight who is afraid to confront the knuckle dragging neo-cons, even with facts. As for the rest of KIRO's host, they are mindless regressives, or I haven't listened to them. I wouldn't be either since they took Mike and Erin off the air. KIRO is dead air space!

Has blather watch died?

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.
