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.

I would think that line-up would scare even a conservative! My goodness, Lapin and Hutcherson? Then two talking heads? Talk about running the gamut from bombast to reserve. Somehow I would have thought Eyman would have been better. Guess I'll have to give him a listen before he's deleted from KIRO. Stefan will sound pretty normal next to that group!

It'll be fun hearing Sytman try to handle Lapin and Hutcherson! I'm laughing already! (Actually, I won't be listening so you'll have to give us all the gossip, Michael.)


You know, rereading your post, I actually think Tim's kind of a likeable guy . . . I just wish he'd stay out of politics.

just bad radio

I wonder if Tim Eyman
would take over the late night at 710 kiro , The styblehead its not funny its just really bad , thats way its free and very had !


Tim Eymann likeable. Right, just like Bush is such a swell feller to sit and have a beer with.
Re Tim's remark about most people being fat and ugly: He appears to be fairly bloated and greasy about the lips himself.


I was gonna say...joanie, what makes Timmy likeable?????????


Tim's not the President and isn't likely to become president. :)

He's that incorrigible, mischievous kid who for one reason or another can't seem to stop himself from being obnoxious. He's not pc at all and I like that. I think a lot of people do.

Also, I've always admired people who stand up for their convictions. That takes courage. I agree that he's moved on from courage to exhibitionism but there's still that seed of authenticity.

I guess it is against my better judgment to find him likeable; but, I do. So shoot me! :)

(Michael described him perfectly as that frat boy who suffers from arrested development!)


If you've a few minutes to spare, hear about "the bonobo is as genetically similar to humans as the chimpanzee. These peace-loving apes live in matriarchal societies and use sex to deal with competition and anger."

Worth the listen.

The Fonz


I'm the one that jumped the shark. Gilligan had nothing to do with it.


Eyeman's a head case who has turned the initiative process into a money-making scam that profits him. If there weren't any money in it for him, he wouldn't do it.


Dana, I think it is an ego thing for him. . . he loves the limelight! The tabs issue was authentic; the rest equal parts conservatism and showmanship!


Eyman is a bottom feeder on the spectrum of the rightwing barbarians, which goes from Neonazi unibombers to Bush,the epitome of "mansion trash."


Tim Eyman is Eddie Haskel.

The Anti KIRO

Eyman is like most talk show hosts.

He can't do anything in the real business world, so he screams and yells and tries to get as much attention as possible.

Eyman is cut from the same personality cloth as Monson, Shiers, Ron and Don and Hannity...they dangerously believe that they understand the issues...

these guys just happen to have a microphone in front of them!


After listening to Tim each morning this week on KKTH, I'm wondering if he's going to put his initiative efforts into something that he really believes in - getting government out of our local strip clubs. Where do I sign, Timbo?

Ed Schneiderman

Hutcherson's hardly a model of reserve, what with his Whose Ass Would Jesus Leap Off the Cross and Beat the Shit Out Of attitude. Jeepers! Who knew there was an Old Testament Jesus?


The bombast referred to in my post was Lapin and Hutcherson . . . the reserve referred to McKenna and Tebelius. Although, I don't really know much about Tebelius . . .

I also misspoke when I said "deleted from KIRO" as it should have said "deleted from KTTH."

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.
