who cares what Dori thinks.....

Nice picture, by the way, Bla'M!

Fremont

Jeez, Bla'M, that was brutal! Pitiful...Monsoon is pitiful!

But the pic is stellar...ditto, Sparks!

Wild Bill

yawn, oh excuse me, these diatribes against Monson are getting soooooooo tired. The Big Show is what it always has been, entertaining. So Dori doesn't run in your Drinking Liberally old school "Seattle Liberal" model. Oh well, that model is pretty rusty and self satisfied and pudgy and balding and getting colon exams and shrinking brains. What do you got against flooring anayway? I bet you've walked on some for most of the minutes of your life. The Dori I listen to on the radio (which is the only one that I care about) cracks me up and makes me think and pisses me off, and isn't half of the things you claim he is. Maybe a big picture book, with plenty of puppies and flowers and horses and clowns, and a big glass of warm milk and some cookies would calm your unjustified fury. It's Hour number TWO ooo ooo ooo ooo

Wow Bill, you described my shop teacher in high school. Always talking about his bodily functions and how the cold air outside always made him want to pee. He also had bits of ass protruding when he walked around and how the govt. was targeting him specifically over some silly violation like not paying his taxes or child support.

Vera Smalls

Dori's day is done. Only people just like himself listen to him. He's sunseting... he just getting some noogies before times up.

I'm loving the Dor-ster (Dori & Star 2008!), but - seriously - what the F is up with Kirby and Co.? I've now listened for 2 straight weeks and I don't exactly understand how that show stays on the air, unless someone forgot that it's still on, which could be possible based on how poorly KVI is scheduled (both in terms of programming [not shows, just scheduling of shows] and clock).

* First of all, Kirby sounds drunk.

* Secondly, Carleen (sp?) Johnson comes across like Nicole Kidman's character in The Golden Compass.

* The Matt dude reminds me of the Korean kid who ran our Junior State chapter in my senior year at Juanita HS.

Their so-called "experts" are like "WTF?" They had some entertainment expert on the other week and I thought "hmmm ... the KVI equivalent of Tom Tangney?" No - it was some guy who was like the assistant manager of a cineplex in Redmond. (?!?!)

Unless they sex things up like Luke Burbank has done with his show since he started flirting with his board op I'm on the verge of tuning out. Maybe have the Junior State kid start flirting with Carleen or something? Not really my bag there but it could help. I don't know, they just need to do something.

Sorry for my potty-mouth and stream of consciousness I just feel very passionate about this. Don't waste the frequency, please! Thank you!

merks

Carleen and Matt do a lot of heavy sexual innuendos both on-air, and off-air. Methinks she is ready for her pre-menopausal affair. She's so religious, she may not be aware of that on a conscious level, however. She definitely needs some action "outside the home," as the Christians say. Matt probably isn't aware of it except on a lizard brain level, such a geek is he.

Wild Bill

Vera, are you saying that there are no special snowflakes? I'm going to cry. Every snowflake is special! Your Absolutism: "Only people just like himself listen to him," makes me think of Yul Brynner in the 10 Commandnments, arms at his sides in some shiny Teal skirt, sneering, as the lackey says, "so it shall be done!" Let's see, Dori's married and lives in the burbs. I'm single, live on Capitol Hill. Let's see, I love Obama, and Dori, well, doesn't. YUP, exactly the same! I do love that TBLT, though; it's almost to the level of Uncle Alan's short lived Playhouse 90. Keep up the cultural stereotyping, though, that us and them thing is going to catch on.

It is sad about the Wilbur show, & the commentators too. The last time I listened to Kirby they were talking about an education issue. Young Matt repeatedly talked about school 'facilitators.' I'm pretty sure he meant 'faculty.'

Send Rev. Carlene back to the newsroom, young Matt back to the phone lines, and let Kirby fly solo.

Monson was on Nancy Grace tonight, on CNN Headline News, regarding the video of the Marine throwing the puppy over the cliff. Grace t put him down for suggesting that the pup was maybe a stuffed anaimal, basically saying, of course in different words, that any fool can see that it wasn't a fake, stuffed dog. Dori recouped a bit, minutes later when he cautioned people against tarring the whole Marines with this incident done by one idiot. Grace smiled out at the little feller and said she was glad he said that , since her father was a war vet. Enough to make the little man's "golf putter" stand up straight tonight.

mick horan

About 10 years ago when I first retired I enjoyed listening to Dori M. But something happened and he started to change. His talk became hateful and so about 5 years ago I stopped listening to him.

Looks like I made the right move.

KIRO710 precious girlyman talkhost Luke Burbank is doing a Wednesday's with Gary shtick now, playing clips of Gary Busey, who made a fool of himself at the Academy Awards last week, when he crashed a Ryan Seacrest interview iith Jennifer Garner. The next morning Busey called into Seacrest's radio show, and rambled on and on. The man has obviously never recovered from his motorcycle accident, almost certainly has suffered brain damage, and I don't find Burbank's new shtick amusing at all. In fact it only confirm's my initial instints that the guy is a smug, conceited punk.

What is that picture? Is that a photoshop job, or is it a really deformed person?

sparky

I googled the picture:

This odd baby that looks like a character from the "Star Wars" was born in Charikot, the headquarters of Dolakha district, on March 29, 2006, and a large crew gathered to witness the event.

The baby, devoid of neck and missing the upper part, having extraordinarily large eyeballs literally popping out of the eye sockets, was the son of Nir Bahadur Karki and Suntali Karki. The child died 30 minutes after being born.

"We wouldn't have been able to save it, even if it had been brought here alive. This is an extremely abnormal case," said a nurse attending to the mother at the hospital.

The newborn weighed 2 kg (4.4 lbs) at birth and was delivered after the normal nine-month pregnancy period. The couple already had two normal daughters, and the mother did not experience any disease during the pregnancy.
This was an extreme case anencephaly, a developmental defect causing the absence of the cerebral hemispheres of the brain or the presence of minute ones. The embryo develops without the upper part of its skull and neural tube. These embryos can in some cases develop through all the fetal stages and even survive to be born alive, but they cannot survive The cause of anencephaly is unknown. Some genetic factors may exist, like low levels of the transcription factor TEAD2. Certain medication, like that against epilepsy and diabetes, could be a risk factor. Low levels of folic acid (vitamin B9) in the diet, too, have been blamed. And women should not wait until pregnancy to start taking folic acid: by the time she founds she is pregnant, the formation of the neural tube (which forms the spine and brain) defect has already occurred.

We've known for a long time that Dori creates a list of pros and cons, fors and againsts in any given debate, and then goes on the air and reads column A while ommitting column B resulting in the outrage and indignation of anybody who cares about column B. He has done it time and time again and once you recognize the pattern its no longer interesting because you know he can't possibly be dumb enough to be oblivious to the counter examples of his position, and you know you're being played. He's absolutely nothing more than an internet forum troll transplanted to AM radio.

It's like if I were to say Jean Enerson and Dennis Bounds are akin to arsonists for heaping free publicity on the arsonist's cause and are therefor accessories to their motives. It's an all too common pattern in the scummy elitist Seattle liberal media. YOU CAN'T STEAL THIS DORI, IT'S MINE!

DT

While I think Monson is an idiot for thinking that may have been a stuffed or previously dead dog that that Marine threw off the cliff, I think that frog baby is a hoax. Why would the parents allow their baby to be paraded around in the streets like that? No one would do that to a dead baby. This has to be a hoax.

YellowPup

Just a note that I was surprised recently to hear Tim Eyman also being allowed to blather on without questions/challenge in a KUOW news story.

BTW, is it just me or is all of the news on KUOW just read directly from the pages of the Seattle Times?

Caleb

Don't try to shit me about that picture. That is Dori Monson. I recognized the dick.

Duffman

Dori (agnyk) Monson is simply brilliant at what he does, and the fact that he's brought up so much herein and discussed ad nauseum only reinforces that. His delivery is incredible and his knack for 'stirrin the pot' (so to speak) generates interest whether it be pro or con. This is why he gets paid the big bucks and is so highly rated. :)

Duffman

And furthermore Would You Buy A Used Car From This Man? :) [Aren't you glad he won't be around selling them much longer?]

Tommy008

Delivery? Dori looked and sounded liek a deer-in -the headlights idiot on Nancy Grace last night. A smalltown rube. It was embarrassing for our city. When he started off terribly, with the bonehead commen about the pup maybe being a stuffed animal, Grace barked at him, treating his comment derisively, like he was a fool.

fremont

Nice job of anencephaly enlightenment, Sparkly! Digging out the ugly truth...someone's gotta do it! Thanks!

Liver lover, knock it off! You suck me into the black hole of despair every time!

cowpotpi3

"Take it from us: we know Dori Monson better than he knows himself: he doesn't really believe these things he says.

That pretty much sums the guy up right there. He's just an actor that has figured out a formula after 9/11. Attack anything liberal and claim extreme connections like all liberal politicians are eco-terrorists. Ignore any issue or question that indicts anything on the right unless you absolutely have to and then make a generic "I am against X" comment and change the subject.

I don't like him at all but he does have a great many idiots duped.

Wild Bill

You can't apply these math formulas to a show built around a human personality, or personalities and chemistries. To try and do so is to pull the petals from a flower in an attempt to understand its beauty. The differences amongst us are more fascinating to me than Legion. chips and implants and Kesey's machines in the walls...Empirical Seattle Thought is icy,,,Dori is a flower threatened by the heel of the proper, rational shiny robots. The art of radio is not a math quiz, the business of radio is.

Wild Bill

>>he can't possibly be dumb enough<<

Yes he could.

asdf

He must be doing something right. You really have to get someone pissed off to get the times to write about you, especially if you are a talk show host.

The "real" media will go out of their way to not mention a talk show host if it's at all possible. In this case, Dori played the times like a fiddle.

The only group the "real" writers hate more than talk show hosts are bloggers. You guys should take some lessons from dori.

sparky

Just doing my part, Fremont. Facts are often missing around here :-)

KS

Dori was on with Nancy Grace-less another CNN shill - she's rather pathetic. Those who expend all the energy disdaining Monson are pretty much clueless, when large pieces of significant s**t are hitting the fan, such what will undermine our liberties - considering how to make this country better after Bush, instead of worse - I'd say worse is definitely in play - which is scary.

Fox News (faux news for Joanie's momentary jolly) has the news babes - i.e. Megan Kendall, Laurie Dhue (but not Rachel Marsden)- I'd rather see them anytime than the hags at CNN and MSNBC.

Tommy008

Monson played the tape of himself on Nancy Grace today and I picked up on somehting new. It was worse than what I remembered. When Dori makes the comment about the stuffed animal, right off the bat, it seems Grace goes out of her way to put him down and make him look like an idiot. She interrupted him and said,"there's no way that's a stuffed animal. Even I can tell that from two thousand miles away." Monson spent an hour of his show today trying to ridicule Nancy Grace, trivializing her show and dissing CNN for not telling him it was Grace's show he was to be on until it was too late to back out. He made fun of Grace's pronunciation, so forth. Dori, At least Grace has graduated from being an ATLANTA assistant D.A. , a mid-sized city mildly successful local yokel like you, Monson, to National bigtime on CNN and Court tv before that. When she appears on the screen she doesn't look and sound like a small town bumpkin with a deer- caught- in- the- headlights gaze.

AuthenticAndrew

CNN didn't tell him whose show he'd be on, as if he wouldn't lick CNN's toilets clean at the drop of a hat.

Racist Ray talaiferro, KGO's 1-5 a.m. snarling troll, frazzled and stressed over Hillsry's Tuesday electoral asskicking of his idol, has resorted to dishing nightly dirt on the Clintons. This morning he resorted to trotting out the old "circle of death" crapola made popular by the righwing hate machine during the nineties. This had to do with the supposed high number of sudden or strange deaths sourrounding the Clintons in Arkansas up to and including Vince Foster and some others during Bill's first term. The obvious slander was that the Cinton's were involved in murder, and of course that's the slander Ray is slyly making. Shame, ahame Ray. Shameful.

KS

Taliaferro is a racist pig, but the Clintons are no pillar of moral virtues. However, he wouldn't know the truth if it bit him in the ars. Funny that he is repeating all of the dirt on the Clintons that the right-wing loons did in the 90's - what a jackass !

It's fun to watch the Dems cannibalize their own with their vitreol now, instead of the talking-head conservatives who did it earlier.

howie in seattle

Once again, it is time for me say (reflexively)
Dori is an ass.

Mike Barer

After hearing Dori on the radio, I have to turn to a Liberal like Mark Levin or read that Pravda-influenced Sound Politics.

I, being a right of Reagan conservative have no problem standing with my lunatic left friends on this site in suggesting that you put your butt plug back in your mouth and go away. What you have just posted is about as childish and idiotic as anything I have read here in years.
If there is some kind of gay joke in that post, I can't see it.
If some of those leftwing idiots do come to your house, there will be hell to pay when your mommie finds out what you posted. She will restrict you from the computer for months.
So, be a good boy, get your homework done. Get a good nights sleep and listen to your mommie and your teachers. Come back when you are a big boy and have learned how to behave in public.
