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.

He was also a mole for Nixon during the Watergate investigations while at the same time playing the part of a panel member looking into the scandal. In other words, he would tip off the Nixon Administration as to what the panel was looking into.

I saw another poll and a lot of people dont know who he is or much about him. As usual, it is the media who is trying to proclaim him as the savior.

He could also possibly be a President who would take more vacations than Bush. His record as a Senator shows he did not wear himself out with work.

Good one, Bla'M very apt!


yo mango: whatdaya think?


Do not concern yourselves with Mr Thompson folks.
There is nothing to see here. Just keep moving. That's it folks, just move along. Nothing to see.


Haha...good one chucks 'nothing to see' indeed UNLESS his wife is standing next to him :o)


from wikipedia

On the June 4, 2007 edition of the Morning Joe radio show, which aired live on MSNBC, conservative commentator Joe Scarborough created an uproar when he wondered aloud whether Mrs. Thompson "works the pole."[4] [5] Scarborough subsequently explained and apologized on June 11, 2007.[6] A July 8, 2007 New York Times article considered whether the "May-December marriage" could become a campaign issue, noting that "she is not a home wrecker" and is "accomplished in her own right."[7] The Times also suggested that Mrs. Thompson is a "trophy wife," according to what that term "originally meant." Mr. Thompson has in the past been at odds with the New York Times.[8]


..and why couldn't he be regarded as a 'trophy husband'


Don't think that happy couple could get by the pecksniffian Republican Women. Jeri may have a good heart, and be smart as a whip- but she looks like the woman middle-aged wives of middle-aged men fear the most. First Lady? I don't think so.


What's Rush slobbering for--didn't they take his Viagra away?


The righties I hear from say he fills a void. They don't seem to want to look too closely. They need a viable candidate and they like the image.

It really is a good year for an earnest and moderate Republican to lead the charge. I'm not sure it is in the bag for the Dems unless they stick with the field they have currently.


Honest question to all the libs here: What do you think of Rudy Giuliani?

He may have a hell of a time getting nominated, because of his moderate views on abortion etc.

But if he does, I can't help thinking that he would absolutely mop the floor with Clinton or Obama, or even both on a ticket together.

Have you seen him speak? He's like the anti-Bush. He's one of the best speakers I've ever seen--far better than Clinton. (I haven't seen Obama speak much). Am I missing something?

What do you think?


What will be the effect of the anti-Giuliani NY firefighters commercials? I don't think he has a chance myself. But, who knows?


BTW, when I said "unless they stick with the field . . . " I meant the Republicans.
