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

omg......Tenino....home to a lot of Uncle Daddies......


"...he is self-employed and delivers meat." No!


Where's Mrs Lovett?


In other news, the KRKO towers are going back up much to the disappointment of nearby residents.

Maybe those "eco terrorists" will appear out of nowhere to carry out yet another mutually beneficial act of property destruction.


Aren't you going to post the photos from Rush's wedding?


that's a nightmarish little scenario. Woman moves from the big-city horrors of gang- infested New York City to the idyllic countryside called Tenino and gets raped and murdered. Isn't Yelm the home of J.C. Knight and Ramptha? Maybe they could help out. And LInda ??? from Dynasty?

Too many coincidences here. I'm truly sorry for her. I find a lot of scary people in that area. It is comprised of former loggers and still some, poor people and uneducated people. Can't think of a large business except for Weyerhauser but that may have changed. Little diversity. i lived down there in the area on my parents retirement farm and I was never very comfortable.

Once they start looking at this guys history, no telling what they might find.


Off-topic so delete if inappropriate: Thomas Frank was in-studio with Ross this morning. Last column appeared for Wall St. Journal and he's on to Harpers where he will have 2000 words once-a-month instead of 800 weekly. Camping out on the Peninsula. He's so cool.

Told the story of how he used to be Republican until he read a book - can't remember the name. His Kansas City learning had been that it was the farmers against the "elite" and "elite" meant government. That book taught him that the "elite" wasn't government but big money-the bankers. Changed his life. Became a democrat.

Some similarities here with the Shirley Sherrod story. She, too, learned it wasn't white against black but money-the bankers again-against the poor. Why don't these tea party-ers get it?

Is it possible that the graft and corruption of local governments in the South set the standard for "elite" down there? Maybe government down there deserves that label. Whatever, it sure is sad and destructive.


There is nothing idyllic about S. Thurston county.


Well, if you take away the meth labs, the junker cars in the yard, the "Recycling for Jesus" signs, beer cans along the side of the road, it's a virtual paradise.


Don't forget everybody's favorite conservative who displays those anti-everything liberal billboards on his property next to the freeway.


That's Lewis County, and they're worse LOL


"Don't forget everybody's favorite conservative who displays those anti-everything liberal billboards on his property next to the freeway."

Makes you feel so welcome, doesn't it? Seems like that billboard's been up since the 70's. That old crank must be in his 90's.

I've spent a lot of time in the area and some of the folks aren't so bad. Just don't bring up politics around them.


The book Thomas Frank talked about was, "The Populist Revolt: A History of the Farmers' Alliance and the People's Party" written by John D. Hicks and published in 1931.

Allen at Division is right. British politics and courts are very different. I would have a difficult time in a British courtroom with a judge that looked like this. I would definitely be thrown in the gaol. Notice how I threw the British term for jail in there?
