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.

I did not read this, thank god.


Michael, you dirty old man.
The phase "Going to Tukwila" was originated by ex-Seattle Times columnist Erik Lacitis. He was describing a legally married couple who were trying to see how much sex they could have with each other within their marriage. Instead of "having sex," they described it as "Going to Tukwila." Nothing illicit immoral or sleezy about it. Fundamentalist church pastors would endorse it, as long they weren't using birth control.


Blowjobs in the Oval Office or booty-calls in Argentina. Here is the bottom line. A vagina is the most powerful force known to man. Never judge a politician too harshly when he succumbs.


Didn't work on Larry Craig.


You’re overstating the obvious, it may confuse mrogi.


Ross must read your column, Michael. His last hour today was about some website with 4 million subscribers that is all about sex? Is it the Dear Andrea site to which he was referring? (I missed the reference.)

A married woman called in and talked about her five-year affair with a married man who works in Seattle but lives east of the mountains. She said her husband just isn't that affectionate.

Mrogi, we finally agree.

And thanks so much for posting something new! I almost posted a desperate plea last night for a new thread but deleted it instead.

Anybody have a favorite sex movie? I don't mean porn. I've always loved The Long Hot Summer. Somehow, the music and the actors (Newman and Woodward and even the Don Johnson version) and the steaminess of it all.

I'm giggling.


I also heard that conversation and was astonished how honest she was about herself and to herself.


Speaking of sex...


Sooooo, did Fido at least buy her flowers? Did he call her the next morning?


That is a wellspring of jokes for this blog. I anticipate the wittiness to ensue…..Anyone seen Drew?


Dohh!! you beat me to it.


I was kind of thinking, Rush takes advantage of the Republican Party as they flounder about the ground. Is kind of funny ay?


Heh, I was going to tie this in somehow to the whole Sanford GPS malfunction, but that would be very disrespectful to women. And retrievers.


Switching temporarily to a serious note on movies, I picked up When The Levees Broke, and it is really good. 4 hours long, but it has a lot of commentary from residents and officials from the 9th Ward ad Upton. Still burns me how those people were so easily abandoned (several people gave well-deserved kudos to the air crews from various Coast Guard districts)


I have it also, haven’t watched it yet. I’ll put it on the list to watch.


Canadian Bacon is very good. And I want to get Taking Chance when it comes out on video.


Do you know of the usenet?




Sex sells!

Not a porn movie, but definitely sexy; "Heading South" with Charlotte Rampling. One of the most interesting things about this movie is the reviews. Reviled by male reviewers. Wonder why...? Because it talks about the unthinkable.



Vers le sud. Is it more unutterable these days or unthinkable?


I never saw that AMJ. The last thing I saw Charlotte Rampling in Was Georgie Girl. Does that date me or what!

Maybe I'll rent it.

I was trying to think of another movie with the steaminess of "Summer" and all I could think of was Body Heat. But I think "Summer' is better. More repressed. :)

Anyway, tonight I turned on the radio at 6 to hear Randi. She came on so strong, loud and silly that I finally turned her off. Why does she do that? She's so smart and informed. But when she gets on an egotistical rant, I'm gone. It was annoying.


Just checked out the slide show. Thanks, Ms. Steele. Rampling is beautiful. Nothing like experience to give presence and exude passion.

I'm having fun with this one. :)

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.
