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.

Thanks Styblehead!


On behalf of everyone here in the Bla'M Fam, I'd like to congradulate Styblehead on the OUTSTANDING upturn in his ratings - a whole 0.01%!


Cliff Mass and Jeff Renner are two forces behind the campaign to reinvent the math curriculum in Seattle and Bellevue particularly and get it legislated in Olympia through a group called "Where's the Math." Guess these atmospheric science majors are big-time activists. Cliff, especially, has been outspoken in Seattle.

Sorry about Dave Ross. Interesting that Reagan is doing a bit better. Dave is suffering from the crossover to AA but some people apparently return to Reagan at noon . . .

Also, your comment, Michael, about Schram finding less and less about which to disagree with Carlson may bode badly for their show.

Who knows? :)

How in hell does anyone get through to the no wits at Entercom that Shires and trucking are offensive yet boring. This programming lacks even the titillating provocateurs of the Publiconazis. Medved may have the morals of Abramovitz, but Medved is literate and Limbaugh could make a good living as contemporary Mort Sahl.

I have an idea ... clone the Montlake. Move the Goldstein fan club from Montlake to Eastlake. The barkeep can be the host and KIRO can sell virtual beer.


When is KVI going out of business? What a bunch of fucking losers. I can't listen any more, I'll fall asleep and crash my car.


If you must crash while listening, please be on Vashon Island, here is KVI's transmitter location


Dave Ross was better before he started asserting his own view point so consistently.

Used to do a great job of facilitating open discussion on any given topic. Now he's condescending (yet polite) to anyone who doesn’t agree with him.

So he looses the lefty’s to Air America – and the rest of us go elsewhere.

Commentators make for far better radio. Maybe their ratings will pick up in the long run…

Wish they’d put Reagon on some other time when I could hear him – I’m not entirely down with his politics – but he seems less of a nanny-stater than Dave Ross.


Reichart is a weenie and I nearly gagged when I heard Shiers doing his "reading" the other night. My husband and I both listened; between gales of laughter and utter astonishment, we remarked that he sounded like a train wreck. Wasn't that the awfulest thing you ever heard?

And he actually thinks he has TALENT!!!


Remember when Bush FLIPPED OFF AMERICA? BIg time!


Yes, he and Big Dick also called Adam Clymer of the NYT "a major league asshole, big time" on a open mic. Something the kool aid drinkers have forgotten


But how is Ed Schultz doing against Medved and Dori?


Bring back Mike Webb!


Yeah Mike is better than Shiers, but all he can talk about is Bush. Don't know if you listen to his podcast, but all it is is him playing tapes from Keith Olberman and CNN and then Mike laughing.


When Mike was on KIRO he was only on the air for 3hrs/day. Now his internet radio show is on all day and night.


Do you expect any host to stay up all day and nite, doing live radio?

      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land.

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
