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.

"If it bleeds, it leads"...fabulous!! Andrew said he didn't remember one citizen who didn't speak out against media consolidation. "Packed house". The FCC has heard us...will they care? Thanks for this, Darryl, and the fucking brilliant Andrew from PSI, as well...

Wip the Lip

I attended the FCC hearing last night. It was a repeat of March, 2003 at the UW HUB. I testified and asked how many of the media were present. While some hands raised, very little of the hearing made it into the media last night or this morning. The Times covered the story. I could find nothing in the P-I. KOMO-TV, which is not owned by a mega-media did not air the story last night. In the 2003 hearing only KING-TV covered the story and the Times. Maybe some of you saw the story elsewhere this morning or last night. I'd be interested to know. Thanks!


You're probably not coming to tonights Xmas party either.

Bill Wippel

Yes. 7:30pm at Doc's in Fremont, right?


The Seattle Times was a sponsor of the event....no surprise they'd carry the story, and the P-I didn't...


Check out Geov Parrish's piece on "The lefty/regulatory gap"(HA). Said about 400 attended and had an interesting take on the evening. Sounded like the two commissioners who were there are on the left anyway so who knows who will hear our plaintive cries in the end.


Also, off topic but . . . did anyone catch our Resident Idiot's emphasis on "my decision" if adjustments will be made . . . in his speech yesterday?

He is absolutely truculent and will probably dig in even harder now that daddy's sicced (sicked?) the big dogs (Baker and Gates) on him.

He's hopeless.


and dangerous.


And who the hell is Geov Parrish? Wasn't he going out with Madonna or someone?


Sorry, Fremont. Did I get Geov's name wrong or something?


Just reading Postman who says "The most interesting take on the hearing comes from Geov Parrish..."

There you have it, Fremont. 'nuf said :)


Oh, THAT Geov Parrish! Yeah, I've heard of him....


Joanie, didn't hear anything about your decision since your daddy stepped in.


What are you talking about, Steve? Did you make an offer . . ?

BTW, nice to know you're still around. Am I not a gracious woman?


Darryl, didn't you say you went to the FCC hearing? Did you comment?

If anyone wants to hear this, go to FCC hearings

Kind of a long time later, but I found it interesting . . . especially some of the early speakers like Carlson. It is a three-hour video.


I took my first credit loans when I was 20 and this helped my relatives a lot. However, I require the car loan over again.

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3

    • 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).

      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
