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.

"Balin spoke with jurors after the trial to see where she could improve her case. "We told her bottomline- she did awesome," a juror told Blatherwatch." Awesome? A meteor shower is awesome. A prosecutor doing his or her job is "great," but not "awesome." If you don't want to be viewed as stoned/stupid/teenager, then don't overuse the word "awesome."

Mike Barer

It was such a sad deal for a man with such talent.

Awesome post, shaniqua

my remake of Sorcerer, the great film of the seventies by Friedkin director of The Exorcist- remember that old film about the four losers (a Palestinian terrorist bomber, a French embezzler, an American criminal who robbed a Catholic Church with his gang, and a Mexican hitman) who end up in that miserable South American hellhole? In my remake, Mike Webb flees before the retrial, and the owner of the Seattle pawnshop busted for being the alleged kingpin of the 12 year long theft ring using crackheads and derelicts to steal from stores to order,jumps bail and flees. Duane Dog Chapman and his son Leland run before their extradition back to Mexico (they were arrested today by U.S. Marshalls on Mexican warrants) , and by coincidence all three of them end up in the same torrid, sweltering stinkpot village in Uruguay.......

Tommy008

sorry, all four of them.

Steve

Maybe Mike could forge a newspaper headline that says "Bush says Webb guilty" and shove it in the next jury's face. That didn't help Charlie Manson but in our oh so careful and politically correct age who knows.

joanie

I don't get that. Sorry Steve.

sclub

What DID Webb spend all that $$$ on?

joanie

I was wondering that, too. Good thing he's got some family.

Steve

Joanie, watch the movie Helter Skelter and you'll get it. Or just google Charles Manson.

sparky

I read that book a long time ago..guess I will have to go back and look because I forgot that part...

joanie

Sorry, Steve. The last book I read about true crimes was In Cold Blood and that ripped me apart so that I would never read another.

I just don't have the mettle for that kind of thing.

joanie

I really don't watch those movies either . . .

tarzan

To me it was always obvious there was something very wrong with mike. Now he is threatening suicide and his own sister is notifying the Cops that he has a weapon at home. Where do you go from here ? whats the next headline ? .. "hallucinatory leftist mike webb scales white house wall ..... Someone needs to take some action here - it's about time mike really does go to a doctor bob

    pacific nw talk stations

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. 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.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
