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.

Go get 'em Bill! Who cares 'bout the PI? It's Seattle's second rate paper under the Times. Hell, the Journal gives it a run for it's money. The PI does have a somewhat decent sports section. To bad that all this gives the PI some undeserved attention and of course B'watch to blog & spin.


The Journal?


O'Reilly is an egomaniac and an idiot; much like 'Rush' and 'Randi', 'can't we all just get-along' WITHOUT them.

Clark Kent

Maybe he meant the "urinal"?


Every time Jesse Watters ambushes somebody with a question, the response should be, "Ask Andrea Mackris"

Let's see if Billo puts that on the air.


Spot on, abob!


Interesting. I think Washington is a 2-party consent state. That means recording someone without permission is a crime. Wonder if Mr. Oglesby has thought about filing a complaint.


Since the liberal MSM invented the "ambush interview" the P-I should be honored. At least that worthless liberal rag got some publicity.

Piper Scott

If you watched O'Reilly segments leading up to the "ambush," and then watched the ambush itself, you'd see that Ol' Rog ran like a scaredy cat, as well he should for refusing to cooperate with a legitimate FBI investigation.

And Ms. Parvaz? Hey! If you want to say in an editorial that you sympathize with those who seek to blow up churches, then I guess you deserve all the grief that comes your way!

Curious...did she ever figure out where she could register to vote...legally?

The Piper

largely liberal

Hey Pip: did you actually read what Parvaz wrote? It's innocuous unless you're looking for something to bop somebody over the head with- which is O'Reilly's show business schtick.

You're a blowhard, Piper, a paper patriot--and a chickenshit as well.

It's easy, Piper, to be outspoken and and patriotically correct when you're anonymous. When are you going to put your name alongside your prolific opinionating like Parvaz does?

Why should anyone listen to you, an anonymous blowhard? Because your kid is in Iraq? That ain't good enough, you fake.

Dr. Rabbitfoot

The P-I is nothing but white wine-drinking, cheese-eating effete liberal elitists.

They hate the troops, they hate America, and they're rooting for Al Qaida.

And I am a Bush-hater,too.


Oh, some of the GoldyFam has decided to pay us at BlamFam a visit. Welcome Welcome.


Amazing this knucklehead writing blatherwatch is so upset that a member of the media gets put on the spot for decisions he has made.

If the PI sent a reporter to get o reilly in his driveway, blatherwatch would be calling it "outstanding journalism."

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3

      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).
