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

maybe Ron should have been the one to ask that queston AND hold The Hair's feet to the fire.

Tom C

There's no such word as "broadcasted"...


Wish I had this week off to hear the show. I did hear Monday's and it was a good one.

Honestly, I can't remember the last time I heard Reichert actually answer directly a question. Anybody know if he got his assignment on Homeland Security? I read he was hoping for it . . .


Actually there is such a word as "broadcasted" and that is the first step in creating a bronze of a woman.

I am working tonight so I will miss the Bush speech. More money, more troops?

What's that saying, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.


i want to know what Congress will/can do if Bush sends troops even though Congress says no....
Yesterday, Tony Snow said that Bush can do anything he wants if he thinks "Congress voted the wrong way." All Hail King George.

blathering michael

Hadda look it up in my Webster's Unabridged (2nd Edition) and in "the radio sense," there is indeed a word, 'broadcasted.'
Thank you Liz for what must be the 2nd or 3rd, but my favorite definition.
And Mr. C. thanks for writing, and sending me hurly-burly to the dictionary, although you are not Tom Clendening, KIRO PD.

Tom Clending

I AM Tom Clendening! I am!!


joanie, This is the week KIRO began rebroadcasting the Dave Ross show at 1AM. You could listen to it instead of sleeping.

blathering michael

Maybe you are Tom CLAMdening, the chowderhead who re-hired The Styblehead


Please God, I know I'm not much of a praying man, but if you can hear me, please turn both Ron and Don into pumpkins.

Thank you


Listened to Ron and Don last night doing investigative journalism. Something about a dead girl being dropped off at the hospital . . . they were very serious, indeed. Intent on getting to the bottom of the mystery.

One seemed a little more thoughtful than the other . . . sorry, didn't listen close enough to keep them straight.

BTW, I HATE DORI MONSON Details to follow. . .


Sorry Tina, only groundpounders call Washington National "Ronald Reagan Airport". NATCA still remembers 1981 quite well.


The car that picked me up at Sea-Tac yesterday afternoon, was tuned to KIRO, just as the two deadheads were babbling on about that poor girl from Everett.

What makes idiot talk show hosts, think they are crime detectives, and know more than professional law enforcement officers?

Also, one of the idiots always prefaces his acusatory pontifications with ass-covering statements like this: "I don't want to throw Stevens Memorial under the bus"...then proceeds to do just that. UGH. I hope Stevens retains high-powered legal services, and puts them to use.

By the time we reached Boeing field, I told the driver to turn the radio off, or change the station. He chuckled and said, and I quote verbatim, "Yeah, I don't know where they found these two, but they won't be around long".

So there you go, straight from a limo drivers' lips to God's ears.


Speaking of investigative journalism, Bla'M is quoted widely about the demise of AirAmerica in the current issue of Seattle Weakly.

coochie mama

Love Ron and Dave; despise Dori. I can't turn the dial off of KIRO fast enough at 1pm. I hate the sound of Bush's voice only slightly more than I hate Dori's.

Speaking of the Chimperor:

Patriot missles and Naval task forces ain't about Iraq.

Just sayin.


Might we be talkin' ego here? and oil?


Wonder if they'd considered broadcasting from Cato?

How high should we raise the minimum wage?...


innaresting minimum wage article in the New York Times, talking about Liberty Lake, WA, and Post Falls, ID:

    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....
