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

Savage is stating the obvious!


He shares an audience with Limbaugh. For what it's worth I don't think he's scoring any points.


Just another little family squable. We will be ok in the morning. You just don't worry your pretty little ol' head Michael.


"Just another little family squable. We will be ok in the morning. You just don't worry your pretty little ol' head Michael."

At we were concerned...now we're just amused.


This is a fake radio feud. Limbaugh and Savage are two of the highest rated talk show hosts in American. They command a combined total of 25 million listeners per day. This is pro wrestling on the radio. Triple H vs Hulk Hogan. For entertainment purposes only.


>> They command a combined total of 25 million listeners per day.>>

No they don't. Look closely at the claims and you'll see that they represent the number of people who listen for at least FIVE MINUTES a WEEK on average.

I listen to Limbaugh about five minutes a week, but I'm sure not listening every day and five minutes is all I can stand.


If I had a nickel for everyone Mr Weiner has called a fraud - I'd be able to donate heavily to MoveOn.org. He is all about the shock value. I wonder what is happening to his anti-Great Britain campaign?


Looks like he's calling for back-up, and it ain't coming. Karma can have a pretty nasty bite.


He's looking for the same paycheck limp-paugh has.

Anyway, who cares?

Woody Held

Eating whose own?

Savage is a Bush-hater, and his strident, angry rhetoric is much more common from lefty bloggers than from conservatives.

And isn't the name-change thing a lefty phenomenon too, like in Hollywood? Like with Chris (formerly Christine) or Gary Hart (formerly Hartpence).


No, changing your name to Savage is more of a capitalistic strategy. He knew he couldn't sell as much baloney to you cons with a name like Weiner. Kinda like how he stayed out of the military to grow pot in his apartment (he called it studies in herbal management)- that was sort of a righty thing to do back then.

Woody Held

Growing pot was never, ever righty, it was lefty everywhere, all the time.

Then there is RockStar soda, which he helped forumlate, using his knowledge of herbs & spices used by primatives that he studied as an anthropologist.

Anything called RockStar is inherently left-wing, as is a drink designed around herbs used by primatives.


Limbaugh and Savage are two extremely rich boys having a pissing contest while we watch.

Woody Held

If savage has been drinking Rockstar, and Limbaugh Snapple, my guess is that Savage wins.


What difference will this make 6 months from now ?
