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.

One might wonder if Reagan didn't break into the Newsmax office and sneak this column into the issue past an unsuspecting editor.

One might wonder why Chuck Norris or George Bush aren't invited to pen a column in Mother Jones.

But one might never vociferate this wonderment, for it doesn't fit the drumbeat of this reactionary blowhole blog.

People confident in their position need not shudder in fear at the opposition voicing theirs.
Laudits to Newsmax.


Whether you like Newsmax or not, it's a popularly-read thread and Reagan knows that. As an 'aspiring' radio talk-show host Ron understands exposure and therein was his motive in that piece. Much like Saturday Nite Live gives so many 'aspiring' politicians exposure - so does venues like Newsmax, Drudge, etc.
I'm sure you seen pics of politicians (including the climate guru, Al Gore) in front of his computer terminal with the Drudge Report appearing on his screen. This is nothing more than astute marketing. Over and above everything else, I'm sure Mr Reagan realizes this and will continue to attempt to further enhance his image and popularity in like manner. Good Luck, Ron - with Air America, you're going to need it.


it's a popularly-read thread

And what does that say about its readers?

Reagan's got a good sense of humor and I bet his dad would be proud of him if he were here today. In fact, I bet Reagan SR. would be ashamed at what the Rethugs have done to his party. Even though he started it all.

Keep on baaing, Baart. :)


A professed liberal-progressive predicting (after the fact) what some former conservative President with Alzeimer's Disease would think is a bit of a stretch....at best! But your comments are always welcomed herein none the less.


..and I doubt he (or his son Ron) would say "The Republican Party needs to be executed as quickly as possible." - as your hero talk show host Mike Malloy apparently spewed.


your comments are always welcomed herein none the less.

WHo asked you?


Duffman - on behalf of Joanie, I'd like to thank you for your kind words toward her. I, too, have been working to create a more welcoming environment.

Let's all join together to make her feel welcome. She's done an incredible job posting here considering the challenges and impediments she faces and is an inspiration to us all. If I could deliver a fruit basket to her, I would. It would be filled with delicious kiwis, sun-ripened raisins, ripe oranges and exotic guava.

Yummy-yummy in my tummy-tummy!


Newsmax evidently matters and Ron Reagan is smart enough to see that.

Malloy is a real winner - maybe the progressives like him are the ones who should be sent to reeducation camps. Malloy should just be glad we are not under Sharia law and existing in a Dhimmitude.
