right-wing blogs we like

Well-written, and flaming.

Interesting to read about the possible ruling prohibiting booing at sporting events, along with a possible ruling in Lakewood that would require speakers to remain civil. Interesting that we have reached a point where we have to "legislate" civility.


perhaps a little scary?

Last night on his show, Goldy kept proudly proclaiming that the language on HA can be profoundly offensive and anything seems to go . . . not sure how I feel about that. Sometimes the point gets lost in the language.

 Ragnar Danneskjold

Goldstein is an obscene lout. You're right, his obscenities totally obliterate everthing he says. He's just a noisy crow circling the garbage dump.


"Sometimes the point gets lost in the language."

Agree! Doesn't appeal to me.


Lenny Bruce could use offensive language and be brilliant.
Others use offensive language just to be offensive and are seldom brilliant.
The thing about the Lakewood issue is an attempt to stop not only booing but some of the offensive chants that get started in the stands.
It still amazes me that at a little league game parents will boo a ten year old kid.


The woman needling Harry to "tell them about the discount" has been changed from an abrasive, ditzy airhead, to an equally annoying, superior-voiced, well-modulated scold. Both versions are asinine as are 99% percent of today's ads portraying women interacting with men.


you'll enjoy this goof on 'ol tom leykis -the fellow that likes to put others down on how they look- from when he was in his late 20's. i think he actually looks better today...
of course, the smokinggun has the court documents about him being arrested for assualt against his then wife, susan.

neither one of the links are a real surprise.


Leykis- what a douchebag. Little tub of goo sitting on a couch, i had know idea he was such a little porker, who obviously never exercised a day in his life. He now says he goes to a gym, but he still looks like a pile of crap, although better, I agree. Leykis always repeats that charges were dropped against him whenever anyone brings up his arrest. That's not really true. The most serious charge, atempted murder, was dropped, that's all. He tries to claim that it was all bullshit, and he didn't do anything, but the fine print of the story is that he had his attorney plea bargain the d.v. charge down, or whatever, to where he got off with going to court-ordered group therapy classes for batterers for several weeks or months, where he had to finally admit he was a batterer to a "bull dyke man-hating lesbian"(Leykis'es words) who taught the class, before he was allowed to stop going. He claims he simply agreed to this for paractical reasons, but the fact is he could have pleaded innocent, insisted on a trial to clear his name, and won an acquittal. That didn't happen.


T-8 you reflect exactly my opinion of Leykis.
Here is another clip of Leykis back in the day. i have absolutely no idea who this comedian is.
I do like the forward combover.


i noticed that too about the "discount Harry" commercial.

oh--and you can legislate civility about as well as you can legislate morality (i.e. not very well at all.)
