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

« Dave ross, tony miner, tim haeck, john sharify, & KOMOTV ace the murrows | Main | OPEN THREAD: who won the debate? »

October 14, 2008



Dino just phoned it in. He looked bored. what a grod. I'm stickin with the bitch.


When does a strong, competent woman not get called a bitch?


When she isn't.


I may have missed something, but I don't recall hearing anybody call Patty Murray a bitch. Don't believe I ever heard anyone call Maria Cantwell a bitch.
Oh, OK, I missed the competent woman part. I'll ponder a little longer.
Hillary Clinton? Wait, no. Even I used to say such things 'bout her untill I made a direct promise to others on this blog. (still keeping my word there joanie).
Ruth Ginsberg, Condi Rice, Sarah Baracuda, Michelle Oblahblah, Thatcher, Goldi (not the dipshit at HA, the other woman)?
Never mind Sara. I think that you just won this debate, at least with me.
But I still will vote for Dino Rossi as we need his budget skills. Something Gregoire is totally lacking. She is as bad as Ron Simms when it comes to the concept of budgeting.


The debate was weak...who won; well as objectively as I can I will say this time Sir Dino won (Gregoire winning all previous ones, in my mind). I agree we need Sir Dino's fiscal skills in running this State. Gregoire did not establish a good track record and seems befuddled by budgetary problems. With control still resting with the Democrats in the legislature I think Sir Dino has a good chance of pulling this one one. I hope WHOever wins, wins with enough of a margin to discount the 'illegal votes' issue...we've had about enough of that. Rossi could use more tact in hammering home a point with passion and conviction...he comes across as intelligent but sooooo mild, especially next to Gregoire.
I'm sure that Gregoire is hoping for an Obama landslide at this point so she can ride the heck out of those coattails.


...Oh, and Jean Enerson as moderator....PLUeeeze? Couldn't we have a real one...like may be Dave Ross...or Sabrina Register.


Now that the Seattle Times has apparently endorsed Sir Dino, I wonder how the LP's herein feel about our good Governor's chances at retaining her post?
Care to offer your opinion. I think she stands a very good chance of losing.


I get the impression there may not be too much support from the LP's herein for our current Governor...no one steppin up to the plate to defend her. I understand. :)


I am going out knocking on doors today to garner support for her. Much more productive than "defending" her here.

If you think our economy is bad now, Rossi giving the BIAW what they want means the market will be flooded with cheap houses crammed together, effectively reducing home values, and putting more homeowners at risk.


Well, I admire your gumption if your can garner support (i.e. defend) her record you could probably sell ice to Eskimos. Chucks might want you on his sales team. I guess I infer that she is the best of two evils...wow what a statement. Any way, good luck on your door-belling, stay safe and watch out for drunken football fans...ha.
