  • Talker's Magazine
    The quirky talk radio trade mag. Check the Talk Radio Research Project- it's not very scientific, but places on the top 15 talkers list (scroll down to Talk Radio Audiences By Size)) are as hotly contested as Emmys (and mean just about as much).

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

Remember when Gottlieb was Mike Siegel's only sponsor on Siegel's nationally syndicated show in the early '90's? The show lasted about 15 minutes and was noteworthy for the Gottlieb Gun commercial repeated in every break.

James Meredith

I love this comment over at (un)Sound Politics, shows you who they are.

I am Glad we Gun Owners Scare YOU !!!!

Be Afraid..... But more importantly, I suggest you Move to Another Country where perhaps Guns aren't an issue. You see, we have had the RIGHT to own them for years, you are living in the wrong country buddy.
Maybe your an illegal "alien"?
Hope you don't have a girly friend, she may shoot you!!!

It's really scary to me that people are associating the illegal status with the crime committed even though his status has no relation to the crime. Those people are effectively convincing themselves that illegal immigrants shoot their ex-lovers, and that more strict anti-immigration laws will somehow prevent ex-lovers from being shot in the future. I have little faith in the longevity of our species.

joanie

I have little faith in the longevity of our species.

On that we agree, Andrew.

sparky

Probably the same people who said the British sailors were "wussies" for going along with what the Iranian captors told them to do...

With all due respect: 'RUBBISH'!!

joanie

Ah, Duff, I defer to the arrogance of the human species thinking it can overcome nature. We shall see . . .

Andrew

The fact that so many people, even college educated, are duped by the most unsophisticated varieties of logical fallacy, means we are doomed to repeat mistakes of the past over and over until someone sets of a huge bomb that blows up the whole planet. Mexican immigrants are becoming the new Jews.

blathering michael

I disagree, Andrew. Jews have long suffered from being in that despised place of having money but no power. merchant class- everyone hates them. The Mexicans will achieve political power in this country.

Andrew

The similarity is that otherwise rational people are buying into irrational logic in order to justify getting rid of something. Deporting all illegals because a few of them of them shoot people is like persecuting Jews because a few of them killed Jesus. Maybe they hated Jews because they were wealthy but when they attacked them they gave other reasons.

People only want to be sensible human beings until their own interests are at stake, and which point everyone becomes a con artists fooling themselves and others, and it will be that way until the end. Modern enlightenment is disposable on a whim.

Grace

WOW, what a bunch of B.S. - I can certainly see that you view life as a glass half full - NOT!!
Can you feel a little more sorry for yourself...and mankind. I can imagine how far this world w/have progressed with attitudes like yours. Have a good life this is not worth discussing further...rather it be siphons and fish tanks!

sparky

The rain does that to people....

joanie

Oh, Andrew, such cynicism at such a young age. I agree, however, mankind is its own worst enemy. And people are sensible until they see that their own ox has been gored . . . latest example? Matthew Dowd.

Back to fish tanks, gas tanks and siphoning . . . what, no physicist with the answer yet?

Andrew

So there goes Grace, doing the "appeal to ridule" logical fallacy, attacking the messenger rather than the message, then puting in her earplugs to avoid any reproach of her weak and fallicious one-size-fits-all response. In Grace's world, only Grace can be heard. Thank you Grace for helping dig the grave in which mankind will surely lay.

chucks

Grace,
Why get a glass that is too big or too small. Just get the correct glass in the first place.
Joanie,
If you fill the hose in the tank before extending it from the tank while covering the draining end. Unseal the end of the hose after getting it to the low drain point and you may not have to provide manual suction.
Happy spring break.

sparky

Im going to run out and try that this very moment...with all this rain I have have some siphoning to do...

dink

I got a hose for you.

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber

    • 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.
