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.

Michael, you're so baaaad! You're going to make poor Stefan and The Asian so apoplectic they might actually do it just to spite you. But really, they can't help themselves; it's those stool softeners . . . .

The question which demands an answer is this: what, exactly, was Stefan up against, vis-a-vis Misty, when she denied -- unconvincingly! -- that she was not moved by what he was against.

But don't let this go to your head, Michael. I can't endorse everything you wrote, especially comparing Stefan to Tony V. It's an insult to barbers everywhere.

Ultimately, I think you (not to mention Stefan and The Asian) need to aim higher. Yes, Congress. Yes, the 7th. Yes, The Shark vs.
. Oh, sure, Darcy
vs. The Magnificent Hair
was good. But we'll forget about it in a New York Minute if Stefan throws his hat in the Big Ring.

I'm tingling at the thought. Really.


I got too thinking last night when Stock yard Vinnie was on 710 am Kiro , Vinnie is on channel 13 new's sports northwest , you know they Fired Wayne Cody for being over weight So what is the story with the over size Vinnie, On top of being VERY over weight , he can't talk ! DoA , Wiff, ting , daat, HAy Vinnie ! here is a little help on the weight ting , stop drinking a gallon of hole milk in the morning with you pancakes
Take Datt !


Nothing personal against those that do...but, I'm thankful I don't live in Seattle, or King County for that matter.

I would take Vinny over Wayne "If you don't know the answer, guess" Cody any day. Wayne Cody was more about Wayne Cody than sports.


Sounds like Misty might have her eye on Stefan's seat as well


I'd vote for Stefan in the primary- him on the stage with McD would be gold.


If Stefan ran for Council- all his readers would have to move back into town from Arlington and Duvall and Bellevue. Doubt if he could scrape up enough voters in Seattle to make a dent. the competition for Peter's seat is already heating up.


On the other hand, he could probably do better against McDermott than that little weasel with the bad attitude who ran against him last time...


Bizarre. Hey, how come you didn't post this in HUMOR IN A JUGULAR VEIN?

It would be interesting having a Republican on the city council...

The Ump

It would be interesting having a Republican on the city council...

It would be interesting to have anyone interesting on the City Council.


I don't buy Steinbrueck's explanation. He could have held on to his seat and fought the viaduct at the same time..


If Stefan were to run, I would register to vote at my sisters house, my two brothers houses and my three nieces houses.
Congress or council doesn't matter. That city needs some diversity. Hell, I would even through some cash in the cookie jar.


Given that Sharansky and his ilk have led the State GOP into irrelevance, and that his own blogs readership now is about half that of Goldy's, all I can say is:

Run Minnow Run!


that guy's right- in the interests of democracy and great reading in the Stranger and the blogs,I'd vote for Stefan in a minute.


Harm he could do:00.0. Entertainment value: priceless

Mike Barer

Maybe it's time to go Shark hunting.


Fucking awesome potty-post, Bla'M...

 Ragnar Danneskjold

Stefan could win against Baghdad Jim if the city fathers didn't steal his votes.



That's the mindless paranoia that makes me keep saying Run minnow Run!

Jenna Bush

Oh! Even Daddy's interested in Sharky's seat. Sharky has a nice seat!

    • 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).

      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
