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.

...the theory being they're much better at and comfortable with offense against government.

They are much better and more comfortable being offensive period.


Obama's choices are very Clintonesque. They're having a field day with him now. If the country weren't in such a mess, he's be feeling the pain. But the Bush misery index is buffering him for now.


You heard it here first: Fred Thompson will not survive. He's lazy, boring, and doesn't have a very good radio voice. Just my opinion so we'll see.

sparky

I trust his sponsor will be NoDoz.

Puget Sound

yes, we know how many many many successful liberal talk show hosts you got out there.

joe the plumber was on cnn and laughed the laugh of the common blue collar guy.

Joe laughs at 'newsreader' claim of unbiased coverage of Obama

Note: this will be immediately denied by the usual Seattle Libs but that just shows how out of touch they are with the common folk.

Puget Sound

rather than try to understand the viewpoint you'll get the 'he ain't a real plumber' crap.
which is exactly why liberals don't do well on commercial radio. they do very well on gov't sponsored shows.
oh by the way, what happened to those Ohio Gov't workers who illegally looked into Joe the Plumber records.

Nevets

Here is a good article from a soldier who is still in the service. Does he describe you with this Joanie...

Instead, he will be nitpicked and torn apart by partisan hacks who are too ignorant to see past their sheepish blinders..

There are 4 more parts if you care to check them out.

joanie

nit picked and torn apart

you mean, instead of letting you spew your misinformatioin all over BW?

Funny, isn't it, how when we do it, it's called nit-picking . Now what's it called when you do that?

Puget Sound

common sense

Puget Sound

spot on nevets

joanie won't understand. she is the same one that put down the service her own brother gave to this county.

KS

Sound point Puts...

Fred Thompson can give a good speech, but he was disappointing in the presidential primaries and would be boring after Michael Savage. Maybe KTTH will pick up someone else who is more dynamic.

Face it Bla"M and the rest of the progressives who show intolerance toward a non-liberal POV, there are no leftist talk show hosts that will garner the audiences of the conservative hosts (even though I don't really care for or listen to Rush or Hannity).
Left-leaning talk radio doesn't sell that well - like Air America ?

It's more a case of people getting burned out on political talk radio when they have recently seen this country going down the dumpster and little constructive action being taken by the talk show hosts (like community outreach or being more active in the causes they espouse). I would respect them more if they actually did something noticeable that could have an impact on Congress or even the President instead of flap their gums - that goes for both the right and left on talk radio.

You gentlemen still trying to pick a fight so close to Christmas?
Santa knows who's been bad or good....

Saw a guy today holding up a cardboard sign on the street corner...it said "Why lie--Need Weed"
Hilarious!

Merry Christmas from Michelle Obama:

While many of us will spend the holidays counting our blessings and sharing dinner with loved ones, millions of people around the country won't be so fortunate. Donating to your local food bank will help provide a holiday meal to people in your community who can't afford one.

Talking with the families of deployed troops was one of the most rewarding experiences I had during the campaign. Giving to Operation USO Care Package is a great way to send members of our military stationed around the world a reminder that someone back home is thinking of them.

This is a time to celebrate our blessings, the new year, and a new era for our country. But it's also a time to come together on behalf of those who need our help.

Do what you can to help today by locating your local food bank and giving your support.

Or send a care package to an American in uniform.

Thank you for all that you do and have a very happy holiday season,

Michelle

Fremont

Wow! What a blast from the past to hear that Paul Harvey is still orating...he's ninety years old! His voice and delivery are inimitable... the oily voice of Thomnpson can't replace him!

mercifurious

"common sense"

"spot on Nevets"

"Sound point Puts..."

Sweet Cthulu, for a bunch of homophobic wingnuts, I don't think I've ever run into so many folks loving to give one another online blowjobs.

Enter Duffman:
"IHO, Nailed it!"

PS to BW visiting wingnuts: If you haven't noticed, the liberal talk-radio "deficit" didn't hurt us in 2008. Hmmmm, an anomaly. Either talk radio is dead, or people listen to wingnut water carriers for entertainment value.

Take your pick

joanie

Spot on, merci.

KS

Spoken like a true wingnut, Merci (more homophilic than homophobic)...

Nevets

Paladin(AKA-Merci), does the wife still let you play D&D still?

mercifurious

does the wife still let you play D&D still?

Thank you for making the jokes for us, Nevets. Does your wife (KS) know about your grammar deficiency?

Speaking of deficiencies, BW Repugs, take a stab at the riddle (again):

The liberal talk-radio "deficit" didn't hurt us in 2008.

So either talk radio is dead, or people listen to wingnut water carriers for entertainment value only.

Your pick?

Last Mango

Hey nevets, does your wife know you play with your dog's nuts when you're drunk?

sparky

ok I just spewed hot toddy all over the screen.

Merci, you need to be here on a regular basis, please.

I everyone having fun playing with their new toys???

Jasper barfed and then peed on the sack of gargage, so my day is complete.

mercifurious

Your welcome Joanie. Hot Toddy spew is my specialty. I hear Duffy and Nevets are computer-screen spew-shield salesmen.

Protects laptops from all sorts of lap-emissions. Ask them about the latest model.

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.

      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
