right-wing blogs we like

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.

The only movie Dennis Miller was good in was
"Meet Joe Dirt".

Daniel

Dennis might be a little too high-brow for the average talk radio listener used to dumbed down rants and equally numskull callers. Unless KKOL does some advertising, Miller might languish at 0.0 except Salem has proved they're willing to support a well-known air personality with advertising dollars. Look at what KLFE did with Dr. Laura. They did a modest amount of promotion and bought some bus boards. Unfortunately there's nothing else worth listening tgo on KLFE; not so with KKOL especially with their pending power increase. Dennis might well be the drawing card to encourage people to lock in 1300 AM.

Will

I am sure you know that KKOL only recently boosted their signal so that it can be heard throughout the Puget Sound (yes, it already happened). They have a great line-up and this only improves it.
When the new numbers roll in with their increased signal they will show a significant presence in the ratings.

"Joe Dirt" had that bitchin hemi

Keep on Moppin' in the Free World!

Dennis was actually pretty good in Disclosure (1994), with Michael Douglas and Demi Moore. It was actually filmed in Seattle. Otherwise, I can hardly think of anyone that I once liked that I now so despise...

KS

Dennis Miller is still Dennis Miller - to despise him because of perceived political change is supercilious - too much stupid stereotyping.


Miller still has a dark and comedic side - I believe. Hopefully his show will be more interesting that the others previously named like Hannity, Monson and maybe he'll do some comedy, more along the lines of Adam Corolla. Corolla has a lively show now, with Danny Bonaducci who livens it up as a co-host. Generally good stuff on the END (107.7 fm) from 5-10AM.

cindy

Welcome to Seattle, Dennis. If anyone
listens to you here, I think you'll be popular.

Mercifurious is Dead

Brian Styble is hitting on all cylinders tonight.

Go Bryan Go!

robinz

They have a great line-up...

Really???? Really!!?? :)

Duffman

Wonder if he'll have a laugh track? Without, I don't think he'll click. On MNF even tho he was reasonably humorous - there was always a bit of a ominous silence after one of his funnies.
Was Okay on SNL but still not the best...or may be it's me?

joanie

I liked his attitude more than his humor on SNL. He had great attitude.

But, never cottoned on to his humor or attitude after SNL.

Pilgrim

Have never found the guy funny or clever...but hey, that's just me. Maybe he will find an audience here.

FREMONT

A guy who so loves "the flitting evanescence of the adverb" ought not to be a Republican.. much cognitive dissonance there.

JDB

Miller has always been a bit contrarian (he backed Perot in 92 and 96 I believe), and goodness knows, he used to be funny. The problem with his come to jebus period since 9/11 is that he has been surrounded by unfunny people. For a long time, he placed ideology in front of humor, which leaves you with a dark void where the laughs should be (cf. The 1/2 Hour News Hour).

Given that the average Bill'O fan is in their late 60s, it isn't a bad try to open up a younger demographic to the dying audience that is Conservative Talk Radio. Apparently Salem decided that they needed someone who would play for the late boomers (45-55 years old). It might work, and the gods know he will be more interesting than Dori. However, my guess is like his last two cable shows he will be gone before we even know he was here.

Duffman

"and the gods know he will be more interesting than Dori"

From your standpoint or that of the general listening audience? [I personally don't think he'll be able to touch Dori's ratings]

Gary

Who listens to Dennis now? The last time he was funny was sometime in the 90s, okay?

Get Sirius and tune in to Stern! Howard is the King! THE KING! Ya know?

Baba Booey to y'all.

JDB

"'Jimmy cracked corn, and I don't care.'

"What in the Hell sort of attitude is that?"

--Dennis Miller, c. 1989. Perhaps the last funny thing he said.

J.Robert Johnson

sigh- I was once a hard left person who has since pulled to the center. trouble is with people like you ( and all through high school) any one who disagrees with the mainstream is called names and lableled. I was right with punk, I was right with grunge and now I'm just right, Being in the center. Miller is right, especially about the war and I AM NOT CONSERVATIVE. but hey between your little name calling party and THIER little name calling party some one has got to have the balls to call a terrorist a terrorist. Ya know what? You might engender a little more respect for you by showing respect for those you disagree with. You " blog" just sounds like sour grapes. Miller is spot on he's funny , smart and sharp. Dennis Miller has his own opinions and stands on his own two feet. My hat is off to him.

freebie

Dennis Miller can't say a sentence without refering to pop culture. He is a perfect example of "trash in, trash out".
And his piggy voice is always gushing about his beach house in Santa Barbara or his spoled brat sons, or some twenty-five dollar sandwich he ate at some bistro and how good it was. He also a perfect example of "I got mine".
