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.

My God, this Political Correctness has transcended all bounds -- rediculous! Why must everyone take him/herselves so damned seriously? If only those in the homosexual community are allowed to call themselves "queers," and only blacks are entitled to use that nefarious "N-word" -- and people continually have heart palpetations or terminal teeth-gnashing for such silly crap, this world is in very serious trouble!
When they changed the name of Chinatown to the International District, nobody who lived there liked it, only those with the audacity to lecture we unwashed "how to properly live."
Now they're trying a similar (and laughable, almost) thing in Houston calling Chinatown Asia Town or some such...?
Haven't we got more troubling things about which to be concerned? See, I didn't want to upset some English professor in his/her Ivory Tower with my ending a sentence with a preposition -- although, with today's sorry educational system, I doubt if anyone under age 45 knows what that's all about (so there!).


In a business setting, your suppose to have a little class and respect for the people who work around you. In this situation particularly you have an obligation, especially if you are management to not act like an ass.

If the guy who said this as so little regard for the people that work under him then it doesn't bode well for other aspects of the working environment.



Absolutely robinz, I can't imagine a good leader not having the moxy to realize that folks might be offended. Hey dude...you're not in SLC any more!


Considering your spelling errors, frost, you must be a product of private school?


When you type with your two index fingers and deal largely with the "spoken-word" (as in having been in the broadcasting field for 45+ years), errors may be made on occasion. Sorry, but that's the best excuse I have for the moment..... your witness - - -

No apostrophe on the plural version of homo. It's just "homos."

Ya know?

Are you Frosty Fowler, frost?
I was reading about the firing of those over at KOMOTV, which includied April Zapeda, Bl'am's daughter. The new GM and the news director are from Fox News and are Foxing-up the news in Seattle with more tabloid-style packages and young things. This goes against the grain of Fisher's previous policy. I would say, lookout Connie Thompson, and Dan & Kathy and all you oldsters, over there.


Nigel..please don't say it may be so...could Ken Schramm be next?


Are you Frosty Fowler, frost?

Dear Sweet Lord Cthulhu,

I come to you now on bended knee.

Please let Frost be none-other than Frosty Hardison, Federal Way's "Concerned Parent" who believes that Global Warming doesn't exist (because God says so), and that the world is only 14,000 years old (abid.)



Hey what's wrong with comparing AG to a condom?


..one stretches the truth, and the other truthfully stretches....


Hey Nigel, imagine Sal on that KOMO list. But then he is protecting pizza parlors from the ravages of min.wage employees.


God no... in fact I left the Socialist Soviet of Seattle area several years ago after some glorious years in Alaska, Phoenix, California and elsewhere.
I'm the guy you can blame for inventing the "oldies" format a bunch of years ago: "KOOL Gold" (7/15/61 in fact).
Have a great evening and a super weekend.


Ah so it was the commies that drove you out! Sorry to hear that. I don't suppose you would accept me calling a region of the country (perhaps where you now reside?) that is more conservative...something like Nazi Germany of XXX?

Of course the idiocy of that statement would only be equal to your previous sputum.

    pacific nw talk stations

    • 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....
