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.

THE REPUBLICAN MANTRA Forgive us Lord,for we know not what we do ,and we dam sure dont want to learn. Being uninformed and ignorant is our defence.

Right Leaning and Right

So, if the people of Iran do stand up for themselves in effort to defend themselves from the mad mullahs and the horrors of Ahmadinejad and the rest of the tyranny of that country, what is Obama, along with Clinton going to do to help or support those people?
I hope Ms Pavaz his the sense to stay covered up and act properly so as to not get beaten or sexually assaulted by the men folk. There are rules that women must follow or their owners can bring much pain and suffering to them.


RL&R: I've worked pretty closely for the last several years with local Iranian-Americans (both genders) who travel frequently back home. They're perfectly competent at complying with the theocracy's enforced cultural norms when appropriate, as is Ms. Parvaz, I'm sure.

That said, the vast majority of Iranians, especially in the cities, are culturally pro-Western. (Rick Steves did a nice travel special on Iran and on Iranians' response to Westerners a couple years ago; seek it out.) The adamant fundamentalists tend to be the folks in the countryside. Not too different from the US, in that respect.

The Anti-Dori

"and act properly?" - as if you would know what that is. For some strange reason, I think she probably knows what she needs to do, thank you.

But, then, maybe your expertise is unlimited.

If ever a poster has been more full of himself, I do not know who that would be.

I don't usually pick fights here but you're asking for one.

Pete, you treat him with too much respect.

Right Leaning and Right

I guess I need to be a little more clear when insulting the 7th century Mid-Eastern men and their treatment of women as chattel so the likes of the Anti-Dori can understand the risk, especially to western women that challenge their backwards ways.
Perhaps, because it was several days ago, you have forgotten how CBS reporter Lara Logan was brutally assaulted by heathonistic men celebrating their new found freedom from oppression (a freedom their women will not soon experience) by sexually attacking Mrs Logan.
I initially thought that you were an ass just out to impress the bizarre blogstress joanie, but am beginning to believe you are her. So your head, by being up her arse is in fact up you own arse.
Pete, I really hope you are 100% right. No woman, not even joanie, should be subjected to that abuse and humiliation.


You need to get your face out of fixed news and into the twenty-first century. And "joanie" is the last person to give a damn what an imbecile like you thinks.

You're always looking for strawmen.

I remember you saying that a good salesman could always get a job. What happened? Overrate yourself? Well, that's hardly surprising.


Coiler, did you catch Malloys segment on the Koch family? Preston Bush and Hitler and Koch and the Communists. Wow. And they're so respectable now. Like the Beatles sang, all it takes is money la la la la la.

Unbelievable. And these fools want to give them the rest.


I'm listening now. Malloy is spot on


As I was getting into the car to come home, I heard Malloy in the middle of an article on the Koch family and how they got their $$$. Missed some of it so have been googling. Anyway, had something to do with Russia and the communists and some sort of theft along the way. Apparently, William Koch turned in his family - he was a whistleblower on the Koch Family and they ended up paying the government $22m or thereabouts. Now they are respectable society.


No wonder RLR likes these guys; they share the same values. Doesn't matter how you get it as long as you get it: MONEY.

I have a little more respect for Mitch Daniels who has suggesting pulling the bill on collective bargaining in Indiana. To his credit, Daniels admitted that he didn't like this tactic. He said that he didn't run on doing away with collective bargaining and doesn't think it should be on the table without a good airing. Even if Walker said he would pull the bill, nobody believes him. He's got that kind of reputation. He's corrupt.

Malloy is a storyteller. I love listening to him.


One more thing: getting rid of union results in less money on the left which we all knew but also the Koch Industries wants water and other natural resource rights in Wisconsin. They are not an overly developed state apparently and there's wealth in them there hills. I heard that earlier anyway. And there is a push on the part of international corporations to privatize water.

Better be careful what you wish for, RLR. I don't think you know the half of it.


Apparently Curley is most comfortable teamed up with a female. The past two nights he's had a lowkey woman ( the same one i think both nights, although i couldnt swear to it in a court of law). Kind of a jokester type, purring-voiced sidekick compliantly playing seconf bananna to Curley's jerky , abrasive "alpha".

Progressive Blog Junkie

Yes Joanie, Malloy is a story teller. A great story teller. Thats why i stopped listening to him. Now that you finally have realized that, maybe you should to.


That's a dumb response, but if it's all you got, so be it. You were always an alpha wannabe, huh? My word for you is yappy.

Progressive Blog Junkie

Lets me make it very clear for you Joanie. I am no threat to your standing on this blog. You are the "ALPHA" here. We have a lot in common. As one Progressive to another, i was just giving you some advice thats all. You even said it yourself, Malloy is a story teller. You dont get news from a story teller, you get news from journalists. Show some standards for petes sake, it'll make your stay on top much more easier.
