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.

Cue the comments about everyone being jealous of Beck.

Duffman

By the way, seen the latest Time Magazine Cover ?

Radio is Dead

Wow. This blog is so desperate that Hood has to dig up material from a guy's early years in the industry. We all looked and sounded foolish 30 years ago. Give me a break!

KS

I saw the Time Magazine cover. I also heard Beck say that he didn't have a problem with the story, except that they embellished the networks too much.

I heard Beck mention that the Republican Party is about ready to implode because it stands for nothing and will be followed by the Democrats. Beck appears to be a Libertarian who believes in conservative principles. There are some inaccurate statements above - Beck the spokesmouth for a headless Republican Party, that he claims stands for nothing ? Get real !

mrogi

A million broadcasters wish they could get on TV and whip the masses into a lather with histrionics and hysterics, get big ratings and laugh all the way to the bank. None of them have the talent. Glenn Beck is the rare Golden Child.

sparky

so was Gold Member

KS

Gold member was fictitious - the MAd Man is for real. Bummer, dudette.

Beck Comedy Tour 2009

"We all looked and sounded foolish 30 years ago."

That's right, radio. But some of us grew out of it. What's your excuse?

Stan

Anybody seen Time magazine circulation figures nowadays vs years ago--in the toliet! Thats where Beck should be.

mrogi

Less than 5 people in America can attract humongous Glenn Beck talk show ratings on a daily basis. If you deny Beck's talent as a broadcaster you are a partisan dishonest douchebag.

Coiler

If it was more than 5, the apocalypse would be around the corner.

sparky

Which 5?

KS

crazy talk ! this blog has become a Glenn Beck obsession.

mrogi

Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Beck and Savage are the tiny elite group of political talkers who draw massive superstar numbers on nationally syndicated TV and/or Radio.

sparky

oh..tiny elites! No worries. Advanced Gain can help.

My Man Dori

Don't forget my man Dori!

M.Steele

With the difference being, these propagandists have become the spokesmen for the republicans.

Coiler

Indeed, the gop is not distancing themselves from them, nor is the crazy mayor of whoville.

AuthenticAndrew

this blog has an OBSESSION! with glenn beck. So does KING 5, KOMO 4 and KIRO 7 because he's going to be in Seattle soon and there's a huge controversy involving a mayor of a local town who has a special gift waiting for beck. Tune in tonight @11 for OBSESSIVE coverage!

RUSH LIMBAUGH SCOOP: OBAMA WILL POISON YOUR ANUS: Gordon Brown if you are out there on the Internet we must pass along Rush Limbaugh’s very important safety warning about the dangers of poison anal fucking: “But the slobbering [over Barack Obama], the slobbering… this guy, folks I’m telling ya, if he keeps this up throughout the G20, Gordon Brown will come down with anal poisoning and may die from it.” Maybe he can walk us through the mechanics of this on tomorrow’s show.

AuthenticAndrew

BTW, incase anyone missed it, Dori made mention of a comment posted by someone named fatso on this here blog today during the noon hour of his show, despite having previously referring to this blog and it's participants as "human scum" I beleive. It's nice to know that human waste like us aren't beneath his consideration.

Erictheeditor

Great articles in Salon about Beck's early radio career for anyone obsessed with Beck or radio.

Duffman

Thanks for the tip 'Eric..', anything in there about Edwards' current career?

KDS

Beck is guaranteed to affect our lives significantly less than Barack and only slightly more than the ambulance chasing, ethically bankrupt low-life bottom feeding lawyer John Edwards.

Authentic Andrew, you one of those that bemoan and bitch about Dori but never miss his show. You're wrong, Dori fully understands that people like you are his bread and butter. He is extremely careful to keep you coming back for more...and you do!
Too funny. (NY Vinnie was right.)

lcjasper

Glen Beck is inspiring, funny, serious, not so serious, and a patriot! I am crazy for him...and of coarse you progressives hate him...progressives usually want to silence their critics by trying to discredit the personal character of those whom they disagree. I am much more impressed with those who attempt to win the debate while actually debating the issue!

FreeParking

Of coarse.
