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.

Gee, if Mo Rocca likes Luke Burbank, why don't I?

Gay Gary

Is Mo Rocca responsible for all these Luke Burbank videos? My first thought was Frank Shiers because he's always jibber-jabbering about Star Trek etc. ... but another one popped up that echoes the suggestino I made on this blog a few weeks ago!

Another great interview, Michael. Mo Rocca is one of the smartest mouths on Wait-Wait.Must have been fun to talk to him. Maybe if he likes Luke so much, he'll come on TBTL.


TBTL is growing on me, of course so does toe fungus. I hate it but I can't stop turning it on.


I listened to it once. That was enough.


I've listened to TBTL a couple of times while flipping the dial. I tried to give it a chance, but I just couldn't stay long.

To say the program is childish would be an understatement. So, instead it's usually all about KGO and Gene Burns for me, at least his show caters to thinking adults.


Upton, have you tried streaming his Saturday show on wine and fine dining? It is pretty interesting; I listen to his descriptions of places
I will never be able to afford..


I just hope and pray that I'm able to hang on to my portable radio so I can listen to KIRO (and Dave, Dori & Luke) When it gets this bad!


You could always sell your blood if it comes down between you and a cheap radio.


Duff, just like the old days for these Liberals. Nothing better for a Liberal than to see lines of starving people wanting handouts only they can provide them. That link you provided looks like the bread lines of the old Soviet Union. Thats the first step in thier domination of the USA. Next is to get the laws off the books that are holding them back. Like this one in California.“California lawmakers are eager to once again begin advancing a political ideology responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people”

The writing is on the walls. The people just need to wake up to see it for what it is.

Excellent link, D! This is why I only read the Telegraph, but among British papers even that is barely tolerable. The self-indulgent snobbery of Britons in the face of their own national frailty is disgusting; their hawing of food stamps in disregard for the incredible number of their own countrymen receiving Council Tax benefits is bemusedly remarkable.

I've never understood why American banner-bearers slobbered all over themselves slinking behind the communist Blair or even permitted the crypto-socialist "Conservative" Party membership in the IDU.

But regarding those whom this article references, what a celebration if only it were true ... the eventual thinning of our too robust herd; those Americans who were so quickly spiritually disinclined to worship at the altar of materialism and the twin pillars of evil - capitalism and communism - disregarding the Republic's anti-industrialist foundation. ".. when they reach up their vaunted, strong hands to seize our palaces and purpled ease we will show them what strength is ... in roar of shell and shrapnel and whine of machine guns will our answer be couched. We will crush them under our heel and we will walk upon their faces."

Any-whooo ... what silly willies that Independent ... so much like the Graun sans the wonderfully aristocratic Lulu McSnatch and her moggums Mr. Whiskers of the pre '01 era ...


I am not gay..I have never been gay! :)

...but, I gotta tell you GG you are a funny dude; and obviously a pretty in-depth thinker.

Central Concern

That law nevets has nothing to do with recession or 'the deaths of millions of people' as you tried to sell it to no avail. Interesting that you couldn't just leave the title as it was, the Cold War. You had to gin up the fear factor. You are pathetic.


Nevets, quit writing on that wall! We just cleaned it!

And what the hell -- don't you have enough terrorists to watch out for than to worry about a bunch of old hippie teachers belonging to the Communist party? You need to smoke some weed, man, and chill out.
Power to the People!

Oopsie daisy, D, I had a gay fascist episode -- I need to take the armband off and learn to put that little bird back in its cage! Sorry, gang! ACK! LMAO! :) :) :) :) :)

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.
