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.

There is nothing new about making the campaign about the dems liberal agenda . . . like, who thought it would be anything else?

Repubs will do anything to keep Bush's record out of it.

We in our insulated little liberal world think such a branding is an insult. But, it might work. That 30% Christian base is just looking for Armageddon and will probably salivating at the thought. Can he attract another 21% of the electorate and do it?

I would think a lot of people who have kids in the military and guard might finally decide they've had enough. My instinct tells me it is a little early to pronounce WW3 and hopefully that idea will turn off more voters than it turns on.

I wonder if Gingrich is testing the waters for Rove . . .


One more thing . . . I wish Darcy were just a little more imposing. I know I'm in the doghouse again but she's just gotta sound tougher.

BTW, I'm watching an old Town Hall Seattle Follies with Steve Scher as mc and he's wearing a AA 10.90 AM T-shirt! Love that guy!

Don't forget Bush's visit left a nice big photo of him and Reichert behind for us to display again and again as Exhibit A as to how close Reichert and Bush are.


Newtie thinks the GOoPers should call it WWIII??
He thinks that would be a positive thing???
Considering it has been 6 years of Bush bungling, lies, etc etc etc that has brought us to this point, I dont think the public will suddenly decide that they want Bush to lead us through a world war...


Israel is having another flare-up with one of its neighbors. It's WW III! Everybody panic!


Yes, remember the A and B list Reagan had for people in his adminastration during a nuclear event--wonder who is on that list today?



If you wonder if Darcy Burner is tough enough or "imposing" enough, then clearly you have not talked to her in person. It should be the very least of your concerns.


She wasn't very impressive on Goldy's Sunday night show but that may have been due to the format. To have a chance of winning, she's gotta come off as being independent and sharp. That's all.

Considering how many of you endorse her, I'm guessin' she's got the skills for it . . . I hope that comes across in her campaign.


Where are the liberal Christians? They are here, they are politcal activists, but I don't hear them! Now is the time to organize as one blaring voice, oh ye lovers of freedom and the holy ghost!


Dori was talking about the discarded baby this hour. He went from that to tv babies left on doorsteps in wicker baskets. Then on to the Democrats and how their views on abortion have caused people to devalue life and that we are responsible. with out hard line views on abortion, for all the babies left in trash cans.

Then I turned the dial to The Beat where they were talking with Nathaniel Philbrick about the good Pilgrims and the way they treated the Indians . . .

Bizarre . . .


Perhaps because I have a masochistic streak, I tuned in to Dumb and totally Wacked Out this morning, and you have to give Dan Sytman credit for finding someone to sit in with him that makes him look so good. I would blame the mornings normally, but even when he has been on Carlson in the afternoon, Stephan (the "ph" if for phony) Sharansky slurs his words like a stoner who is definintely one toke over the line. Well, luckily for him, he has a voice made for blogging.


Interesting, Joans....I was formerly an abortion, myself!

Everyone thought the Republicans would bite it in the last cycle and they would up doing better than before. I am not getting to confident until we learn some tactical skills.
We should dislike karl Rove, but we need someone who thinks like him.


Had a small dinner party tonight. Eight people here and when I mentioned WW3 most of them assented like they agreed we are in WW3. I couldn't believe it! I said "NO! This isn't WW3! Get real . . . "

Maybe WW3 is a viable strategy to close ranks and win . . . for the republicans. And my guests are - or were - of the liberal persuasion. Scary!
