    progressive brilliance from the guy who pointed out Tim Eyman's nascent horse's-assedness
  • Talker's Magazine
    The quirky talk radio trade mag. Check the Talk Radio Research Project- it's not very scientific, but places on the top 15 talkers list (scroll down to Talk Radio Audiences By Size)) are as hotly contested as Emmys (and mean just about as much).

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.

Poor taste Blam...

Caytie

I agree with Rick.

wny not

might be funny tomorrow - but not today

Liz

I chuckled.

sgh

A fine example of the compassionate left.

spambutcher

jackass

sugo

oh jesus, lighten up, breath easy and be happy a real terrorist event DIDN'T happen.

lukobe

This isn't funny enough to be offensive :)

Off-topic--y'all get your voters pamphlets yet? Mine arrived yesterday.

umo

Corey Lidle got his pilot license from the "John Kennedy/John Denver Flight School".

Corey Lidle's last words: AllahU Akbar!

President Bush was so angered by today's Corey Lidle terrorist attack...he ordered an air strike on Yankee Stadium.

I'm here all week folks. Don't forget to try the veal.

Brianne

VERY bad taste. He left a wife and one or two children, and virtually nothing's been said about the peoples' apartments that were damaged and the others who died.

rodman

I'll agree with the string... not your best moment, michael.

joanie

Whenever anyone dies - whether Iraqi or baseball's Corey Lydle - it is a sad event.

Bush seems to have the same indifference to Iraqi deaths . . . 600,000? He says no. 30,000? Now that's a joke.

Life is life . . . value all of it or value none of it.

mercifurious

Bla'M~

Have you ever been given the adjectives "Sick" or "Unhinged"? hahahaha

Before I die, I want a big ol' Orbi "Mercifurious Unhinged" headline. We all have our dreams

spambutcher

If you're going to be crass you have to be funny.

this was crass and dumb.

I've heard funnier from Frank Shiers - a lot funnier.

(and I don't like Frank Shiers)

trickydick

Read this blog a lot and never have taken the time to post. Poor taste and not amusing. I could've given some credit if it was at least amusing...

prismatic so prismatic

I have to agree with trickydick above--I like reading the radio insider dope and the stuff that's relevant to local liberal/left politics, but crass (and feeble) attempts at humor just duplicate the excesses of Ann Coulter and her ilk. Plenty of pinheaded stuff out there to poke legitimate fun at without taking cheap shots and blowing your signal-to-noise ratio all out of whack.

TomF

Not remotely funny.

You can't criticize the president for seeming oblivious to the tragic deaths his policies cause... then turn around and use a tragic, innocent death as a comedy punchline.

Shit like this is why liberals don't clamber back into power. They attack the right for its cruelty, then out-cruel it themselves.

Shame.

jerri

is nothing sacred? LIKE MICHAEL'S RIGHT TO LAUGH AT LIFE??? It's stuff like this that makes me keep coming back here. as the man said, LIGHTEN UP!!!

mikeB

You are by far one sad & sick person. Seek Christ, He will fix that hole in your heart.

sparky

Bill Clinton's penis really wrote the article.

joanie

I chuckled, too, Liz.

joanie

Seems to me a good writer is supposed to get people's attention. Guess you did!

lukobe

Just because a good writer gets someone's attention doesn't mean if you get someone's attention you're a good writer :)

joanie

Oh really? :)

Fremont

Nothing is too sacred in the realm of black humor...giggles can be heard during the the dark nights of the soul. Navigate the void with humor...carry on, Bla'M!

Right Wing Willie

People die every day. Get used to it. The people on the street who were "traumatized" and crying, thinking it was another terrorist attack need to crawl back into their holes. Now wonder the terrorists think we're pussies.

Fremont

Does anyone have current information on the cause of this crash?

sparky

Fremont, all I have heard is the investigation is still ongoing, that the fuel tanks were full and there was no message, as earlier reported, that they were having fuel problems. I did also hear that one of the apartments damaged by this crash belonged to the woman who was injured in a Macy's Thanksgiving Parade a few years ago when one of the big balloons hit a lamp post, causing it to fall on her. I tell ya, God is saying to this woman, " MOVE TO ANOTHER CITY!!"

And, Willie, perhaps you have never lived through a traumatic episode...that is what Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome is all about. Intellectually you know one thing, but your mind and body react to another.
