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.

That the Republicans have to jump on a comment about toilet paper that was made in jest, coupled with the "controversy" of Edwards' hair shows just how much they are scrambling. Wow.

Liz

The "Wearing Red on Fridays" is for real up here, at least I think it is. I don't live near a base, but I would suspect it would be more noticable in those areas.

Wearing red on Fridays: Wear something red on Fridays to show support for the CF and their families. (Red "Support Our Troops" t-shirts and golf shirts available at: www.cfpsa.com/canex).

As for the public at large, right now the focus is on hockey jerseys.

Duffman

Well just about out the door on a risky secret mission for a while. Will miss you guys (no computers where I'm goin). Keep solving the world problems. [T008 w/look fwd to more installments of your thriller..you are a talent my friend]. Bye y'all.

seattlejew

Red ...

as in Socialist Red?

Mao Red???

Stalin Red???

Blood red?

what will they thunk of next?

lou

Here in Lake City, we're using toilet paper on Fridays in support of Alberto Gonzales.

dwindle

Support the Red guard!

sue

How about black armbands to support the troops? Let's support our congress to stop this war.

mercifurious

Didn't stop talk radio from running with it, though- obviously not enough in the news more important his week than trying to make Sheryl Crow look silly- proves global warming is a scam, dunnit?

Ask Duffman. He'll swallow any anti-GW spoiled-fish you feed him.

OH, and drudge-fed garbage about Edward's $40 haircut - ie, the most important news ever.

Note: I wonder if Duffy knows how much Drudge hates his goddess?

Shaniqua

Drudge is such a sissy, y'all.

JDB

I'm sorry, I watch FOX News. Do you mean that something has happened in the last week other than Alec Baldwin, Sheryl Crow and our continued success in Iraq? I thought that the Attorney General was supposed to testify to Congress, but no one seems to be talking about it on FOX.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week on MSNBC, Stephanie Miller and crew will be broadcasting live on MSNBC in Imus' old spot. That makes it 3 am -6 am our time on the west coast...I plan on taping it for later viewing. This morning they had quite a discussion of what they would have to leave off the air since they would be on TV and would want to be "sensitive" to recent events. I suppose that means the " You're a lying sack of crap" song is out....

mercifurious

Sparks on my future wife:
That makes it 3 am -6 am our time on the west coast...I plan on taping it for later viewing.

Actually, I think they said it would be on during their "normal time" here (6-9am). Only if you wanted to call-in, it would be 3-6am... I think.

Will be watching/listening. Perfect replacement for Imus - and the polar opposite: Hot, Smart, & funny.

Note: Herr Falafeloofa is gonna have a coronary about this MSNBC move. Let's hope that Orally tries to add Stephanie Miller into his Soros web of evil.

Note2: What are the odds of Kim Jung Il ("K to-the-I to-the-M-J-Izzy") Making an appearance. 0-to-none?

O-moron is just pissed because they fact check his ridiculous lies extensively. Notice how he won't refute any of their source evidence, rather he just stoops to smear tactics because he's aware his audience is too stupid to notice.

sparky

well it will be recorded and played at the regular time here on KPTK, which I will listen to as usual, but I would like to watch them in action....

Shaniqua

O-Moron? Can't we come up with something more creative? O'Rile-Me or something, ya know? Okay?

tink

How come Rush Limbaugh is able to play this parody (pre-written; pre-planned; thought out in advance) and there's no firestorm of criticism?

http://www.alternet.org/story/50998/

Am I missing something? How come this fat fuck can be a very clear racist and bigot, but Don Imus is off the air?

cowpotpi3

I heard that clip today too, Tink. Just chalk it up to yet another example of ultra-right hypocrisy.

And Shaniqua, I defer to your creative stylings, my insults need some panache.

KS

Sheryl Crow is ridiculous for hinting to the vultures of the media that she urged people to use one square of TP. They ran with it and made her seem psychotic - oh well. Not hard to see why Lance dumped her.

sparky

Thanks for playing "People Who Should be Thinned from the Herd!"

Martin R. Howell

Did anyone notice the timing of Mike Webb's apparent cessation of his internet show? Hint: Same general period of KIRO changing ownership. The return of his show to replace any of those lesser than him on that station (and I would argue that would include all but one) represents a potential gold mine in ratings for the upcoming NEW KIRO, and a solid start to putting things back together the way they were when the station ruled the nest. Looking for Mike? Look behind the scenes at KIRO right now.

fuzznuts

I can't (in my wildest dreams) imagine that he would be back on KIRO.

The computer says noooooooooo

gary

Well, JM, you can run but you can't hide...found you again. I am on annual mission to analyze destruction of great NW as I once knew it, oh, and see the rels too.
Going to have my own 1/3 of a blog shortly to hype the Three Berets art show (Holyoke) in which I hang, hat and all. I will be guest on XM Oprah Friend Dr. Oz Oct.19, again, plug the show. This may be redundant if I raise you by phone.

    • 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).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
