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
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

Because Michael, it..um...creates jobs..that's it. It creates jobs and...uh...


That is a stupid response Sparky and admittedly unexpected on my part. You are not known for stupid comments (arguably disagreeable, perhaps, frequently) in my opinion. Oh well, we all have bad days.
Corporations and unions should not be able to make political contributions. Both are entities and not people and as such have no constitutional rights.


Hey, boys and girls - It's pile on Joe Miller time...

No thanks here - I'd rather pile on Lisa Murkowski.


Morning Joe is meeting with Bloomberg to consider whether they would make a good Independent Presidential ticket for 2012. I guess a dead intern isn't the game killer it used to be.


Fishing . . . just fishing. I don't think Joe will be his VP. More likely, it is a way to get some kind words from MSNBC if Joe thinks he's in the running.

Bloomberg will not let on who is on his short list, I betcha. Judging from the way he picked his Joel Stein replacement (education in NY), I don't think we'll know anything for quite a while. And judging from the way he picked Black to succeed Stein, I'm thinking I don't like Bloomberg as much as I thought I might. Reminds me of the way Stanford picked Olchefske to run finances at Seattle Schools. That sure turned out good.


Bloomberg seems like a better choice than the current prez. However, he is too much big government and political correctness to warrant my vote.

Elizabeth in Alaska

Our sitting Governor supported Joe Miller (probably only in public), kept all Sarah's appointments and only after being certain Miller would lose; this week cleaned out Sarah's faithful.

Everyone in the state knows someone who ended up on Sarah's hit list for some reason or no reason at all.

The National press keeps claiming Alaskans are pro-Sarah, but the snap-shot they took the day of her Vice Presidential election victory (in Alaska), was preceded a couple weeks earlier with EVERY Alaskan citizen getting a check with Sarah Palin's signature on it! My family received more than my 1st house cost, as Sarah pushed through an additional $1,200 per person.

The truth is; Palin spent more money than any previous Governor.

Palin let her husband rule Juneau, causing legislators to consider "what would Todd think?" before any initiative.

Sarah pushed through a $500 Million dollar give-away to a Canadian Company that didn't require them to build anything! (it was her version of "playing hardball" with our US companies)

Sarah stayed in Wasilla when Gov and charged us per diem for more days than there were work days during her time as Governor. (per diem for staying in her own home)

She quit the only 3 jobs she ever held in Alaska, always creating some drama with her caste as the perpetual victim.

We are glad to be shed of her!
