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.

In my opinion Carlson & Schram (the 'Ron & Don' of KVI) need to go away and Carlson needs to be on in 'drive time' and cover local topics (especially politics). Therein lies his appeal. Like him or not he does have a good 'feel' for local politics and he can generate a good amount of interest in his view points (for or against). For me they just can't compete with Dave Ross and where as I would listen to Carlson in the afternoon I now hardly ever listen to him. Bryan Suits has a unique sense of humor and is good but not in his current time slot.
Dave Ross is still the one to beat in my estimation.


How do you Get Styblehead off your front porch????????
HOOTY HOO !!!!!!!!!
And as as always !
Duffman you DoA Man
God Bless Ted Nuggent !
My Vote is for Fred Thompson !
A New one : Give Phil the news Junkie Stybleheads 3 hours on sunday night.
Styblehead radio is more than just bad it's plan wrong !!!!!


HAy Duff!

the live streaming station is
are try the Scott Cox show good wacky moring radio out of Bakersfield ca. his show is on at 8:00am to 10:00 am live streaming radio on www.kernradio.com


Why do Styble & Phil still have shows? Hello Bonneville?


"Air America will eliminate its news department and hourly news breaks at the end of June"

wonderful, more time for more of the same commercials.


New Animal planet show- "Propagating with Bryan."


Now we know what Styble means by "With the Space Needle at my back?"


I was "fortunate" enough to catch "The Frank Shiers Show" last night, and what a conundrum he did present. Hard gritty news like the war in Iraq, or immigration? Nah, the horrendous personal dilemma that he and his wife and their beloved Veruca Salt (on whom the sun sets and rises) had made a "commitment" (Yep even little 4 year Veruca was involved in the "commitment." ) To attend a birthday party.

Well, gosh golly, doesn't another friend of Frank's call him to invite him to attend a baseball game, but not just in any seats, actually "in a suite."

Poor Frank, and the big ethical question. Do they need to attend the already committed to birthday party, OR could he bow out and attend the suite at the baseball game "with rich people."

A few callers were kind enough to offer suggestions to Frank. Perhaps others here would like to tell him where to go.

Chances are "Tiger Beat" hasn't gone to press this month and perhaps their adivce columnist could help you with this quandary.

However, however bear in mind by choosing the ball game certainly sends the message to SaraLee that committments in life can always be broken, if something better comes along.


...and Frank lest you forget: I seriously doubt that one of the last things you say/think before you check out of this planet is 'I wish I had attended more Mariner games' !!!


Ok, Liz, I'll take up the challenge.
Talk about self-congratulation! That topic was just a way Frank could remind the rest of us how honorable he is and tell us how much integrity he has for "keeping his word" just like his dear, dead papa raised him. Unlike the rest of us, you're a great daddy, Frank, and morally superior. Thanks for filling us in on why and by how much.
I don't like baseball, but I would have gone to the game in a New York minute, just for the beer, you asshole. Sara Lee lives her life w/you,(a fact she'll be soon trying to change, if she is half as smart as you say she is) but free beer is a commodity rarer than pearls and certainly more important than somebody else's kids birthday party.
And one more thing, SHUT UP! you condescending prick.


mrogi: excellent in-depth analysis...you're right; beer trumps EVERYthing...even your reasoning, eh...have another..


I like rabbits


Mrogi, you da man. BTW, Bla'm, seeing Styble's picture, it's no wonder he lives in a batcave--doesn't look like much propagatin' going on there.


Actually captured that from Styble's myspace page - just before he deleted it.

Why oh why would Styblehead ever delete such a fancy-pants photo of himself - posed so thoughtfully w/ a backdrop video tapes? Probably the same reason Styblehead wishes he had not sent me profane emails

But Bla'Ms version - buying it off a KIRO garage freak - has a better ring to it, so I'll go with it. Let's just say that I put out the flag on my condo balcony & Mark Felt came to the rescue.

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.

      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
