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

He's only the third rated Shock jock ? That's rather disappointing.. Maybe that's sheer numbers of listeners. Savage is more shocking than either Limbaugh or Hannity and is less of an ideologue than either of those two. He has called Bush 43, the worst commander in chief in history of America more than one occasion.


One thing you can say for living in liberal Seattle is that Michael Savage is a total ratings failure around here.


Isn't that wonderful, Lars?

Gay Gary

Why is this man on the LDS-owned KTTH?

-- His political opponents are "degenerate slime bags" with "mental disorders" and have a "virus like leukemia."

Luke Burbank has said he wishes his opponents had been sexually molested by pedophile adults when they were young children.


Four hundred years ago, the Jewish community of Amsterdam (or was it only the Hague) improperly adopted the Christian practice of excommunication and applied it to Spinoza.

Controversial at the time, cherem has since been rules inadmissable.

To bad. I would personally move to submit msrs. Medved and Savage to cherem.


SJ: Your Rabbi is currently on KVI, sitting in for Kirby.


Mark Levin will have a field day over Savag's case big thrown out of court.....OMG Rabbi Lapin is sitting in today on KVI. He just admitted to being a real life Robert Niro in Meet The Parents. He said that when one of his daughters is dating a guy she's serious about, he obtains a handwriting sample from the young man and sends it to a handwriting analyst he knows. Has he raised a bunch of spineless wimp girls who put up with this obnoxious domination an meddling in their personal affairs? I can just see Lapin watching the needles jump over his nosy, asinine questions, as the young man is strapped into the lie detector machine.


Savage doesn't pretend to be a Jew anymore. If you don't believe the myths, you are an atheist, are you still a Jew just because you like bagels?


Shun this man. He has the right to say all this, but we don't have to pay attention to him. That is obviously all he's got- everybody being shocked at the garbage he spews.


I think the truly shocking thing is that someone agreed to have sex with him in order for him to have kids.



Rumors about the demise of Michael Savage have been greatly exaggerated. There are only two radio talk shows host with a bigger radio audience than Savage; Limbaugh and Hannity. An audience of 8.5 million makes Savage an absolute superstar of radio broadcasting.


8.5 million people with a collective I.Q. of 14


I do not listen, nor have I ever listened to Savage. However, I have read of some of his psychotic rants and I find it ironic that he does not laud the ADA and anti-discrimination statutes, which he instead so frequently decries. After all, his show's syndicate has hired and continues to pay Wiener, a person with clear mental illness, and he doesn't have the guts (or sanity)to thank anyone.
