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
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

Take a few days off, Bla'M..we will hold down the fort for ya.


Having just been in the hospital for a while and still recovering I can relate to your concern. I wish your loved one a full and speedy recovery. Indeed the Sparky & Joanie Show can handle it. :)


A salute to all my fellow veterans!

I recently had the pleasure of attending a veterans program put on by one of my grandkids' class. It was true Americana...very refreshing and touching to see 3rd, 4th and 5th graders so apparently attuned to this day.


Sparky and I are up to the task...:)

You and your wta take care, Michael. Our thoughts are with you.


Take care of you and her, Michael. Give me a call this week.


Amen. Milk programs in the schools is important - true Americana and refreshing as you say. Thank you for protecting us against all those evil soy-drinkers. The blood/milk you spilt for this country will not go unrecognized!


Thanks merci; will always appreciate your deep affection for me. :)


The supremely annoying Obama koolaider Dave Ross claimed today that the North Carolina teacher who browbeat the repub student and praised Obama kids in her classroom was taken out of context and unfairly judged becasueo f a youtube clip of her in action. I was ready to hear that it was all an exercise forthe kids in showing how a teacher could go out of line and show bias or aomehring like that. Nothing of the case. It seemed all Ross had to prove his point was that the student's dumbass parents supported the teacher,which means only that they are dumbasses. the people who are outraged are the correctly thinking people. Ross presented nothing to refute the fact supporte3d by the clip, that this teacher is way out of line. No larger context that could excuse he remarks. nothing. Pretty weak Dave. Ross is getting just more and more annoying.


How's the weather down there, Dave, with your nose firmly planted beneath Obama' ass. Get off the air. open a Prius dealership on Mercer Island. Let a new man sit on your studio chair


Today's big Seattle talk radio news was buried in plain sight in The Seattle Times's sports section. The other shoe has dropped on Eastlake:

"KIRO-AM (710) will become an all sports-talk radio station on April 1, according to multiple sources."


Any of you guys been reading about Al Franken stealing the election? It sounds all too familiar to what we had 4 years ago, finding lost ballots in cars, corrections made to ballot totals that affect the senate race only & don't affect any other races voted on. Isn't there someone who oversees this shit or is every jurisdiction just on their own like the old west=?



It seemed obvious that houses were over valued in 2006 but nobody in the media except for a few people like this guy said anything out loud. This was like a colossal pump'n'dump and everyone holding stock or realestate deceptively assured home buyers that houses that cost $200k three years really are worth $300k now, for realzeez.

Those deceived home buyers took out equity loans they can no longer afford as a result. Basicly all rich people lied to all poor people in perfect unison.


Just what Seattle needs, another sports talk station.

Brian Maloney, is that you, whining about Al? Just think, if he wins, you get to fill your website with more stupid ass pictures. Don't complain.


sorry i meant home owners as well as home buyers.


Chin Ho Kelly

Brian, everyone is on board in the new west and the east. The old south is as dead as the GOP is. We have succedded in operation sabotage. We begin exterminating republicans jan 21.


Hello all and thank you for allowing Michael to focus on me this past week; he is a warm and wonderful man. I'm home and grateful for it. You may now go back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    pacific nw talk stations

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. 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.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
