right-wing blogs we like

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.

Good riddance.


There apparently was another on Faux recently where the commentator slipped up by saying Osama when she meant Obama and then covered it up by saying well both if we could (or something to that effect) - also in reference to assassination - but likewish I'm not seeing this in MSM? It was just time to jump on Hillary again. Man I hope she finds a way to win this thing!


Sorry, here's link Faux F***-Up


Gee Sparky
Care to address why people were so silent from your side when Bush was the subject of an assassination joke by Randi? You'll recall how I even put the mp3 -courtesy of your 'favorite' the Radio Equalizer- for you to listen to of Randi uttering the 'jokes' when you denied it ever happened.

You'll also recall how you wouldn't even admit then you were wrong.

Well I am glad that you are now onboard with assassination jokes being beyond the pale.

And Joanie, the only bully on this board is you. You namecall/caterwaul/skeddadle in an attempt to stifle any dissent from 'the word' according to Randi.


Good catch on Fox Liz Trotta. Stupid joke and she was smart to come on to quickly apologize. She probably should be suspended.


The last seven posts on this blog:

- Obama scolds Rush

- Bush is an illegitimate president/Memorial day

- Al Franken

- Robert Mak

- Robert Mak

- Scott McClellan

- Some sport radio guy in Pittsburgh

Does anyone else get the feeling that the owner of this blog doesn't listen to local talk radio? I know he used to. I don't even think he listens to national talk radio. I get the feeling he just scans the internet for radio-related news stories for material for blog. So then why say "listening to talk radio so you don't have to?"


..because participants like me, Tommy008, PUTS, joanie, sparks, etc, et al DO!!!


They're also pretty quiet about their side's miserable attempt at talk radio, and one of it's founders. Evan Montvel-Cohen was just arrested. Story here: http://radioequalizer.blogspot.com


So that's the game? Everyone here realizes BM is bored with listening to local talk radio, and so you just put up with him being a national political/media blogger wannabe, getting his material by scanning the internet, and you just go ahead and comment on local talk radio anyway, no mater what his posts are about? Why don't we all try to nudge him back on track?

BM, go back to what you do best. Go back to your niche. The blogosphere is overcrowded with general political and media blogs. You were meant to be a local talk radio blogger.


Wonder if this will affect Al Franken in any way?


So much of this blog is about Hillary and the fantasy that her presidential campaign isn't finished and washed up.

She and her husband have used whispery versions of every sleazy tactic you can think of, whether tossing out the suggestion through a proxy that Obama was a drug dealer, to holding up fear over Obama's safety as a political asset. If you squint really hard at the comment you can make it seem unoffensive, but in the larger context of how the Clintons have tried (unsuccessfully) to smear Obama throughout the campaign, the intention is clear.

We should hold politicians to higher standards than we do our mouth-breathing sports talkers.


Putz really gets heartburn for Randi, she's still on the air and no investigation either. I think you should give it up. You're starting to sound like old man Dr Bill.


Puts addresses sparky, re-coil responds...just like we figured, eh puts. too funny!


Duffboy, I bet if I look up "suckup" in the dictionary, I might just find your picture. I did not realize there were so many rules to follow here about the timeliness of replies and the subsequent worthiness of the poster.


...and yet another! Oh Boy this is too revealing...haha; if you looked up said word you'd probably find a mirror


And Gullible.

Who cares what Clinton says anymore anyway? The Queen of Appalachia is finished.

LOL! Too funny. Well Duff, you called it and it happened like you hypothesized.


Hey Duff
J Hova is kinda silent since yesterday...

Let's pause as we wait the obligatory 'high fivin white guys' or 'circle jerk' comment to be inserted.

So predictable.

Of course, Joanie is the wild card. No telling what that nutter talk will fly out of her Polident slathered pie hole.


Holy Crap. Let me rephrase.

And the jerks are circling again...

DT, your assertions re: Bla'M are hilarious! 1) No one "owns" a blog...he is not the "owner" and 2) Bla'M not only listens incessantly to local radio, he listens to three stations simultaneously!

Duh-f: Has your conspiracy theory identified Sparks as Coiler? WRONG, wrong, wrong!


Okay everybody.
Pay attention please.

Sparky is NOT Coiler.
Got that.
Coiler is NOT Sparky.
Got that.
Just want to get this fact out there:
Coiler and Sparky are not the same person.

There you go Freemont. Feel better?

joanie hussein

Poor putsie, being bullied by poor me. Yet he seems to want to talk to me all the time. Poor putsie. Poor, poor putsie.

joanie hussein

putsie, do you search the world wide web looking for mean and stupid remarks to make about people? Somehow, none of your comments seem authentic or relevant to of the topics.

And what the heck does Freemont mean? Why the extra e? Some obtuse message in that?

DT: in case you haven't noticed, a lot of talk radio focuses on politics. Since politics and current talk radio seem to go together, what's your complaint?

I haven't seen or heard or read that anyone has dragged you to this site kicking and screaming...

You know, DT, you remind me of Hal in "2001: A Space Odyssey."


Joanie, just as Americans like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought and protested to make this nation a better place (and in doing so, was even more patriotic than most), so am I trying to make this blog a better place. Instead of criticizing my efforts, I should be held up as a shining and heroic epitome of blog commenting activism and social justice.
