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.

Stefan is the biggest GOP stuffed shirt since Don Benson, and the brooch he wears is bigger than mine.


I'd love to see him run on an anti-public financing platform. I think he would suffer the biggest defeat and funniest loss in my voting history! That would definitely be worth a look.

For every step we liberals take forward, the conservatives seem to take two back.


Off subject:
Has anyone come up with the nickname
"RINO Dossi"?

Just checking.


So far his trial balloons have floated off and foundered in Sedro Wooley or wherever Republican ideas go to die

I'm pretty sure it's between Chehalis and Centralia. The ideas bypass OlyWA, and then make it onto Uncle Al's Billboard. Then they die.

The hard part for The Stefan, who takes a breath one day, and lets it out the next

Both through his mouth, I'm assuming.

But seriously Bla'M... If he decides to go for it, Can you imagine how busy we'd be?

I have dibs on Sharky's KIRO mouth Shudder Shiers.


Um, Michael, Dems actually outraised Republicans in the 2006 cycle in Washington state (at the state House and Senate level, at least) - and not by a little bit, but by a metric-butt-tonne. Public financing would level the playing field, but right now that might actually hurt Dems.

I'm just sayin......


public financing. do you really think the candidates would change their campaign style if their campaigns were publicly financed? my guess is not. so do you REALLY want to pay for the kind of crap ads they run now? or do you want to impose government speech controls since, after all, we'll be paying for the ads and we are the government?

and who decides who gets money? will it be only the Ds and Rs?

let's think about this...

blathering michael

Don't bother me with facts, goddamnit. Actually, Willis, 2006 was a special year for Democrats. Special interests grokked correctly a losing election for the hapless R's. That doesn't hold true in presidential years. Besides, I can live with 'level.' Our ideas are better, I believe, and if given fair and equal hearing, can and will prevail. The issue of public financing for Supreme Court justices is certainly the Lord's work- the public in general would benefit from not being assaulted by such rich bullies as the BIAW in financing partisans into the process. I'm just writin'...


So with public financing, who pays for it and how. Do we start a new tax for elections.
Do we put Ron Sims in charge?
How would we distribute the funds?
Who determines how much which party gets? Dino Rossi? Chris Gregoire?
What if the Libertarians come up with a viable candidate for Gov?
Would Dino and Chris give um enough to compete?
Screw public financing. Let us have complete disclosure of the source of all funds.
The BIAW spent alot of money on the judges and we all knew it. They got thier asses whipped anyway.
We can not give our friends in Olympia any more power over our wallets. If you can dream it, they will tax it.


speaking of Olympia and taxing, what did you think of Dave Ross's total demolition of Sen. Prentice this morning regarding a new Sonics arena? Go Dave!!!

Stefan Sharkansky

Yeah, well, I agree with my critics here that my odds of beating, say, Frank Chopp, by running an anti-public-campaign-finance are about as good as the odds of any other Republican running against Chopp. But if you get your wish of public financing for candidates who can't raise their own money, I'll be more than happy to take the money and run (so to speak). Be sure to come to the stripper and booze party!

But I'm not going to run unless I qualify for public financing.


Just a little campaign advice for Stefan: Use your psuedonym, Eric (I agree with liberals) Earling.


Please run Stefan. You lack all the things a Republican in Washington State needs to lack in order to get the nomination--humility, sense of humor, positivity, big ideas, charisma, and an obedient wife.


Fabulous obit. on a nasty local icon, Nate...great reasearch!!


can you suck my dick



I think this is Anthony's special way of saying "Can you be my Valentine?"

I would go with "No", but it's your call. He might just have some hidden charm that I neglect to notice. Could be all that penned-up residual hatred from past V-day jiltings, perhaps

I'm just going from my personal troll experience with MID (ie Webb's Bob Dole). Take it or leave it.

Oh and Happy Positive-neurotransmissions-turned-into-Greeting-card-market day, Fremont.


But we dont know where it's been....


Thanks, MF...I always say that the hallmarks of a good man are the poetry in his soul and the soul in his dick. Ant' is a Hallmark valentine...eloquent, seductive, everything a gal/guy dreams of...but, you, MF....YOU have the soul. Let's share Ant'...
