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

Thought I Saw A Bum

"Cox will travel the country profiling people and doing stories illustrating American life"

Sounds terribly original. She looks hot, do the carpets match the drapes?


She has been a semi-regular on Rachel's show. It will be interesting to hear her on AA; she always seems a little snarky on the TV. Perhaps she will be more professional on the radio.


Oh I hope not...snarky is good!


It is so hard for women in media. They really need to raise it up a notch. And voice is so important. She was one of the first bloggers and only female (that I can remember) to do TV media and even blogging conferences that were covered by CSpan. She was weak. Her observations weren't very insightful nor did she voice them in assertive and powerful ways.

She's gotten better over the years but still doesn't leave the "female" behind and get to the substance of the debate or issue.

I know I'm hard on women, but most women I know just don't have the passion for politics or the fight. Rachel does. Sometimes she borders on "cute" also but has such power and knowledge that you forgive it. Anne Marie is still working on it.

She reminds me of Jessica Savitch. Because Jessica was one of the first, she made it. But never was considered among the "best."

Best? Diane Rehm; Rachel Maddow; Arianna Huffington; Linda Ellerbee; Leslie ?(60 minutes); others I can't think of but not many. Not many at all. I might include Jean Enerson in that group if she'd done more than read the news most of the time. And I like Christine Craft on KGO a lot.

Those are the women I like and admire.


'She looks hot,..'

Hot? Well I guess it's 'relative' and it's certainly your call...but not in my book. But, I'm sure she's talented.


'Cox will travel the country profiling people and doing stories illustrating American life.'

Smacks of CBS's 'On The Road With Charles Kuralt'. I enjoyed that.


with gals like this around, it can be hard for men in media too.


"still doesn't leave the "female" behind..." What, exactly, does that mean, Joans? Tone of voice? Point of view? Enlighten, please...

Ditto on the snark, Sparks


too bad michael couldn't get a shot of her ass for duffman... he judges radio talent on whteher he wants to fuck em.

ha ha

she's not fuckable in duffmans boob world


I think SOMEone has a crush on me...tsk..tsk; you naughty boy!


Still yipping, duff. Get over that.

Fremont, "female" - I don't like watching women who sell themselves by flirting, acting coy, catty or silly. I think that's kept women down. Katy Couric is working on losing the cute and maybe she'll be successful and maybe not. I still can't get past it with her.

Anne Marie has a lot of little girl quiet-voiced stuff to lose.

Some more women I've liked: Nancy Dickerson a long time ago and Charlayne Hunter-Gault (the best in my opinion) on McNeil Lehrer. In fact, Hunter-Gault was absolutely the first to leave behind personality and "girlishness?" and really know her subject and ask great questions. She's still the best in my book. But you only see her for special reports and not often for that.

And she had the double whammy of being a black woman in a field still dominated by men.

One more I like was Margaret Carlson but her soft-spokenness drew criticism and I think she tried to change her style. I was sorry about that. She was good. She knew her stuff and reported well. They shouldn't have tinkered with her but let her draw her audience. She would have.

Can you say you've ever seen or heard Anne Marie Cox provide really thoughtful analysis on anything?

That's my major criticism: her analysis is very, very superficial and thin. I think she was surprised herself when her blog (which I also didn't read much because there was nothing new in it) became well known. And probably because she was one of the few women to do it.

I liked Judy Woodruff, too. She has an easy way about her and asks great questions.

So, that's what I mean. You may not agree since in the end, they are all personalities which we re drawn to or not. When I sense a woman doesn't really know her stuff, I don't watch nor respect.

And now, for the big one: after all I've said, I liked Connie Chung! Go figure.


So Rachel Maddow is moving to mornings on AAR for an hour per day, making room for Reagan.
She should do like O'Reilly and just dump the radio crap. Pay attention to her TeeVee program before it sinks in to the abyss.
As for Ana Marie Cox, it would only take a couple of glasses of wine before I would hit that.
Then again, it would probably take her a fifth of Jose' C for her to let me.


I like Ron, but I would have preferred they leave Rachel where she is and have her on for just one hour, and give Ron the 4-6 slot. I wonder what KPTK will do... It would be ok if it meant an hour less of Bill Press!! I would be fine with the 5-6am time slot...Kind of a weird move. Working a split shift is kind of a drag..I tend to agree with you chucks, concentrate on TV and use the extra time to work on news specials and interviews. The second hour repeat of her tv show from the night before has not been wise.


I'd keep Rachel on the radio even if only an hour. And I like the repeat of the TV show. I'd like Ron for two hours. Rachel is the lure. I'd bet money she's the black ink for Air America.


This smart women has been a semi-regular on Rachel's show. Work of this smart women is useful.
