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

Wow..good luck, Tina! That is an exciting move!


Congradulations Tina.


Good luck Tina...I will miss that quirky voice.


"I sort of feel like I've been called up to the majors"

Wha, I thought Seattle was the majors. I mean, we have Dori Fuckin' Monson! Come now!


When I read that I was concerned about that line...KIRO really is the majors! There are incredible people here who are amazing. I learned everything here - and was lucky to have ever stepped through the door!!! The network in NY just feels like a major deal and I know that I am lucky to have it - for sure.

Thank you for your kind words - really!

Now I feel like I should say something obnoxious or bad so that I don't seem like such a polyanna! Geez...


I hope KIRO will get someone like you who lends a woman's voice in the producing of these two men. I've appreciated the balanced gender perspective I've heard over the years from your behind the scenes work.


Tell Bl'am what you are doing once in a while. I'd love to watch your career. You are a role model I point to for my 12 year old daughter.


Looking at that picture Tina, you need to get on the tv. Radio is not the place for such a great smile. Good luck to ya!


I wanted to write something snarky about Dori. But not here. NY is the majors! Everything else is just a step. PS. NYC is a fantastic place. Key the mic once n wile for us.


Gosh, who will tell Dave what to say?


I admit to a bit of envy. I've given you some grief but sure am happy for you. What an opportunity. Make the best of it.

Oh, I love the network of Dan and Mary. He was the last of the real journalists in TV in my opinion.


Seattle Patriot

Darn. Tina was the epitome of Seattles "progressive" establishment: intolerant of ono-liberal views, cloistered, and downright arrogant.
Good-bye & Good-riddance.


OMFG, I'm quite embarrassed by the company I'm keeping in reading this blog.


Hey SPatriot---Heil Hitler, baby.

David Tatelman

Michael, I can never forgive you for making me think for a few seconds that Tina had died. Please don't ever do that again.

Tina has been a wonderful foil and addition to the Dave Ross Show. I particularly enjoyed reading her blogs. Like many of us I will miss her and wish her the best.


blathering michael

David: as a long time reader, you should know that RIP is traditional around here for people leaving the market suddenly. Tina is disgustingly young and has promised that she will never die.


From one Greener to another, Best of Luck Tina, you will be missed.


that spot has got to be the top of the producing heap as far as news talk is concerned. there will be a stampede for that job.

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.
