Well-written, and flaming.

"Authentic ELF? Ask ATF/FBI about restricted water mains." is likely in reference to this. Not exactly a secret.

There is no central ELF, so every act is copy-cat by definition. It has nothing to do with the environment and everything to do with justifying lighting fires or destroying property. The typical IQ of an arsonist is between 70 and 90 and people who commit crime in general have a lower IQ. Those poorly written "ELF" responsibility signs don't bespeak of a high IQ. They're not environmentalists. All the tree huggers I know are well above average intelligence. The real question is why did someone actually want to light that building on fire? Why did someone actually want to knock over those radio towers?


'Is it really ELF who's responsible? They've taken, the credit, as usual- they're assholes.'

Bravo! for telling it like it is, Bla'M.


I prefer O'Donnell on Countdown. Keith is getting a little cheesy. Seems like O'Donnell moves the show along better.

Clinton easily and eagerly went down the con's path. He didn't put up much of a fight. Hilary Healthcare notwithstanding, Clinton was the happy con on the left. Goes back to his Arkansas days when he had to become more conservative to win. That set the pattern.

The DNC is continuing the fraud.


A tuesday oddem prediction.
I think it's only a matter of time (and it c/be shortly) that the lovely and gracious Ms Palin will likely divorce her husband.
She will never again be able to successfully run for political office.


She does not need to run for office. She can project power from her soap box, make great money to support herself and God, can she drive the libs nuts.
She will have influence on both sides of the aisle.
She is more likely to go at it from a libertarians point of view as that seems to be more where her heart is.
We will see. Palin is going to be around for a while and will be of help in evicting the neo-commies from office.


e're ratings whores, too, and having Beck in our backyard brought a butt-load of national traffic, and gave us some of the attention we crave and adore.

Translation: Joanie and Duffman posted 40 times a day instead of their usual 30.


Why are you lying.


Welcome back, Oddems. Here's for more gossip from Seattle radio.


Here's the article on Shiers mentioned in the post http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2009/sep/26/bremerton-native-a-star-of-seattle-talk-not-yell/

It's definately not a fluff piece. It's as kind as it is harsh.

I'm sick of the assertion that Shiers is "center right". He's all about the "Obamacare" and he's worried that Obama is indoctrinating school children. It's cookie cutter Limbaugh without the personality. He speaks to an audience that already agrees with him. I'd rather hear someone who has clearly thought things out for themselves. Using a partisan buzzword like "Obamacare" just shows that you've went into the debate with your mind already made up. That's what makes him predicatable radio, and predictable radio means bad radio.


I think 'someone' just learned how to linky-linky. :)

Mark C.

Palin has effectively zeroed herself out of the national political equation. That she is an opportunistic babe on the speakers' circuit, making headlines whenever she can to make a buck, sell her book, doesn't bother me. What would scare me is the slightest chance she be given even one watt of power of governance in this country. She's just another pretty face, selling her ass for th highest price. That's OK, whoring is an honored profession in America, lewft right and center.


I invented linky linky.


Why the fuck are people talking about Sarah Palin? She went to China to boost enemy morale. That's all the fuck there is to say. Oh I get it. She's in your age group. She can't seem to find her way out of your fantasies.


Can you think of an odder Tuesday oddem than Ms Palin. [smile]

Grand Oligarh

“Shiers uses suck-up as a broadcasting style.”

Soooooo true.


I heart linky linky


shiers is on kiro not ktth, tho shud be


Frank probably told his hometown newspaper interviewer something almost exactly liek this--- "I'm pretty populaR HERE ON kiroFM EXCEPT FOR SOME BLOGGERS OVER ON BLATHERWATCH....but those are just a few 40 year old kids still living in mom's basement , with ditrty hair, typing on 10 year old Dell's running Windows 2000." Big Frank will wait fo rthe laughter from the reporter which actually will not come, as the gu is bright enough to recognize selfserving' defensive drivel when he hears it. Also as a listener to Frank's show , hes heard him use this exact same line for the past 4 years. For the record, my computer is a brand new Compaq Presario running Windows 7......oh and i live on the ground floor.....in Queen Anne , not Georgetown or South Park....
