right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing

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.

hope everybody had a great 4th of july..we know we did because we read on the news this morning that sarah palin was going to be sticking around and she might even do something on a national level and we are so glad to hear this about sarah palin... go sarah!! we love you!!..


Franken got to the US Senate because he is a better baby kisser than Coleman.


Would you want to be kissed by Norm? Ew.


Nice reporting on this. But I'm still laughing at the openner to the last post: "We bet she'd be a one-termer. We were wrong."


I am going to make up some Presidential campaign bumper stickers that say:

"Sarah Palin 2012-2014.5 "


Al is going to be great. He is not as liberal as some on the right are trying to paint him. I remember being irritated at him for supporting the Iraq war for awhile. I admired him for going over there to do Christmas shows for the troops. I don't think he is a blue dog, but he is not as liberal as someone like Ted Kennedy.


I read that Franken graduated from Harvard with a degree in public policy.


From her highness Randi R:

RHODES (34:52): The reasons that I have for thinking he (Franken) will make a terrible Senator are really valid. I’ve kept them to myself. I’ve not put them on the air. I let the man run without the burden of what I know, which is all documentable and researchable and you can find it on the Internet. Never said a word. Left it to the voters in Minnesota to find out. Left it to Norm Coleman to expose it if he did some background operational research he could have found a lot of stuff. Didn’t bother to do it.

It’s Norm Coleman’s fault. I tell you that I think Norm Coleman is a horrible Senator. I think he’s a horn dog. I think he’s a womanizer. I think he’s a liar and I think he’s a terrible senator.

On the other hand, I’ve got plenty of reasons to believe that Al Franken is not going to be the type of honest senator, the kind of transparent operator that were were voting for. The kind of transparency and accountability that we voted for, he doesn’t fit that mold. I know some stuff. I choose not to put it on the air.

What say ye Joanie...you da expert of R/R and I'm guessing you also support Franken. Have you got the goods on this.


No "goods" to get. It came from newsbusters. If it was a print media, it would be useful for wrapping fish, and not much else.


It is no secret that Randi is no fan of Al. It has to do with the fact that she was the only person initially hired by Air America that had any radio experience, but the media focused on Al because he was the one who was well-known. There is a movie about how AAR got started and the crew was still celebrating Al's premier appearance when she went on the air.
It is hard to be the work horse when everyone gushes over the celebrity.
That doesn't mean that Al will be a bad Senator. Randi used to hate Ed Schultz with a hot white heat, and they are best buds now. I have a feeling that Randi and Al will bury the hatchet and will become friends.


No doubt the recording at the website that you can listen to her flaming franken is a fake, Drew?


Odie, would you believe what Daily Kos or Democratic Underground had to say about Sarah Palin?? It's the same thing.


I agree with Drew, it is inane to confuse conjecture with truth. For example here is a quote from Levi Johnston, “She had talked about how nice it would be to take some of this money people had been offering us and you know just run with it” speaking of Palin.


I dont read the DK or DU so I have no idea what they may or have said about Sarah.

I offered a website of a voice recording of Ms Rhodes stating her opinion of Sen Franken. Wheather you accept it or not, I really dont care.

Even the Enquirer gets it right sometimes-ask John Edwards.


And I told you I agreed with the premise that she doesn't like him. Counting on a news source that "gets it right sometimes" seems short-sighted.
