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
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer

doo dads....heh..now that's funny!

Puget Sound

I like watching Lawrence. He's smart and knows his politics.
This will be must see TV come November and the tension mounts.

While Olberman is a sane guy who plays his crazy schtick on TV,
Lawrence is a crazy guy who plays like he is sane...when the mask falls off it is damn fine television.


Mr. unhinged himself with the spittle on the corners of his mouth -

I have seen him when he has seemed sedate and normal at times, but he seems like he's got that Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde thing going.

Johnny Sombrerro

Well Socrates saw "meat with heat" and you know what happens there

Gramps Flamboeski

hahaha "lamestream media" that's a funny joke. never heard that b4 (x-cept 4about a hunnert billion times!!!) hahaha funny joke. Ju make that up yer self??? purdy funny. God bless America!!! hahaha


O'Donnell's has an uncanny ability to not put emphasis on anything. He's like the human equivalent of ticker tape.

Corporate Suit

I had a very sober conversation with a high-ranking Bonneville KIRO employee on Thursday. There are changes coming, yes, but what they are, no one knows. R&D aren't going anywhere and the morning news block will remain as is. Pete Gammel coming back to KIRO is a good thing as Ursula Reutin will be able to have a life with her family but still manage the news operation during the day. Shiers, Ross, et al all stay the same. There really isn't any 'gossip' or anything like that going on. Everyone is doing their best to keep the station on the rise.


I really like O'Donnell. I always wondered why he didn't replace Olbermann. He is erudite and very, very savvy politically.

Also, I heard somewhere that Olbermann was the new Murrow? I think it's Maddow.

Mike on Ring of Fire interviewed Ed Schultz. If you missed it, you missed a good hour. Ed sounds midwestern meat and potatoes, but he's savvy as well. I wonder why the flip talkers are more impressive to some city folk than plain speaking regular guys? Kind of like the difference between Carter and Reagan. Carter was honest, brilliant and had integrity. Reagan was a showman. Carter's vision was energy independence by 2000. A smart man leading a stupid country.

There once was an island called Easter. There once was a country called America. There once was a planet called Earth.

Puget Sound

'Big Ed' Shultz appeals to those 'lo-information' listener types.
Thankfully, we only had 4 years of Jimmy Carter's 'brilliance.' The fact that a few lone nuts still try to make the argument that Jimmy Carter was an effective President is testimony to the above. But keep doing so, as even your fellow 'usual suspects' won't be touting that 'line O Crap.'

By the way, Lawrence O'Donnel married very well to a wonderful actress. So he's also got that going for him.


That would be the still-gorgeous Kathryn Harrold.

Hubba-hubba, Lawrence.


O-o-oh, how "special" is "Blatherwatch’s special friend"?
We can't access the Scar link, Bla'M! Try again, please.

blathering michael

In other words, Corporate Suit, you got nothin. Hope he at least bought your coffee.

    pacific nw talk stations

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. 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.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
