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
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer

Whether from the small minds on this board or the small minds in radio, all the right seems to have to offer this year is name calling: shit weasels in sandals; childish and meaningless playground talk: What's wrong Joanie, you forget to stock up on the wine coolers? and general stupid stuff: white males all have rings in their noses and are working on their knees on a plantation in Alabama".


And they aren't even original. They actually have to listen to someone who profits off the vacant space between their ears to come up with this stuff.


Amazing, isn't it?

Gee Joanie
Why do you duck the Duffman Challenge?
Seems like you're dissatisfied with the quality of the posters here.
Someone named Pudge is waiting for you.

The Duffman Challenge? I didn't know there was such an event named after a fool to show how dumbed down americans are.

Nancy-poo

Floyd Brown is a neighbor of mine, I was hoping to read some intelligent feedback and discussion of this article. Instead we just get a bunch of personal bickering.
What is interesting to me is that what the Republicans did in 2004 may not work this year. The difference is a lack of money. The Swift boat effort we now know took a lot of money and the work of a lot of professionals. It wasn't a grass roots effort as it posed. This year the money-boys don't think it is worth the effort, and the rest of us are on to the smear tactics anyway.

joanie hussein

Why don't the money boys think it is worth the effort?

And what is there to discuss?

And who are you referring to when you say "the rest of us" and smear tactics.

Actually, I'm not trying to be a "gotcha" or anything. I am curious. If you're not familiar with our blog, we've been there and done that so many times and it seems to serve little purpose. Sometimes new people make assumptions before reading.

I'd like to know what more there is to say about the tactics on the right. And I'd like to know if you think "not worth the effort" because Obama's a sure loser or a sure winner.

Those of us on the left realize the Swiftboat tactics were hardly grassroots and honest. But you'll never get the rightwingers to admit it. Their only source of information is Rush and Hannity, probably in that order.

So, what do you think?


I will say now and have posted previously several times that I think this country is tired of smear tactics and that Obama's natural integrity will win.

Also, Kerry's vulnerability to the lies was because of his anti-war efforts when he came back. That solidified a lot of Nam vets against him. It was too bad. It was unreasonable. But, the foundation for such vindictiveness was already there.

No so with Obama. Well, except for the fact he's black. And if you read some of the people on this blog, that seems to be enough to solidify a hate campaign. Will it happen?

joanie hussein

And what do you think of someone like Floyd Brown who profits from this kind of activity. Kind of like living next to the Bonanno Family?

chucks

Hey B'lam:
How'd you get Nate to shave for the picture? You must have some serious horsepower with ol' merci.

joanie hussein

Well, I see "nancy-poo" was really Floyd's pampered poodle passing by to drop a turd and keep on going.

KS

"And what do you think of someone like Floyd Brown who profits from this kind of activity. Kind of like living next to the Bonanno Family?"

I'd say he is the far right's counter against Media Matters, moveon.org and the Daily Kos against McCain, who all belong in the shitter - Joanie poo.

The hope and change promised is little more than sailboat fuel for the suckers who are enamered with Barry O. and PT Barnum would be proud of him.

joanie hussein

You know, klueless, you're worse than clueless. You're actually stupid.

KS

Ahhhh....Joanie Baloney - Does the truth strike a nerve ? Besides your smugness, you're eyes are brown.

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.
