right-wing blogs we like

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.

ugh. Cannot listen to that fat buffoon.

1st, he must inform us that he is a huge media personality. Ok, he is uge, and it is a weekend so his normal viewers may have forgotten this.

2nd now he's slamming the First Lady on nutrition, complaining she was eating ribs on a ski vacation. Hey, fatass - you burn quite a few calories skiing, not that you would know...


Nothing wrong with ribs. In fact, in the attempt to reduce fat in childrens diets, some children aren't getting enough fat and that is a problem, too. Has to do with seratonin and other brain chemicals. Children need some fat.

A balanced diet includes protein and fat and it is most important when children are developing. Even vegans were born of humans whose ancestors ate meat. It is part of our diet. Everybody is an expert these days.


Medved is still a far right disgrace who just last election time a few months ago was paraising the Repug clown candidate in Delaware and deriding those who were saying she had no chance of being elected. she had a really good chance, he said. Really. A few days ago he had a nujob flogging an anti-Obama book he wrote, on his lame radio show. This screed, which sounded like something from Regnery or other rightwing publishing house,claimed among other things that Obama didn't write his two books. I switched the radio off at that point, so i didnt know whether he went on to name the usual suspect the wacked righties have been claiming wrote the book- that ex- Weatherman bomber guy turned professor. I don'r believe Obama to be brilliant, and im not even an obama fan, but he is undeniably a quite intelligent fellow Does anyone relly think that htis ex-mad bomber professor guy is smarter and more capable of writing a book like this than Obama? The two books he wrote were not Dostoevsky novels and something a man of Obama's education and intellect could easily write, with perhaps some generous help from an editor. The writing prowess of the books, which were done in a competent workmanlike job, nothing more, was not the reason they sold. It was his life stories contained inside them . The idea that he would need a ghost writer to write his own life story for him is ridiculous. e


this ghost writer claim might make sense if the hate screed guy on Medved was talking about say two autobiographical books Governor Jesse Ventura of Minnesota claimed he wrote himself. The Ventura guy is a cheap schoolyard bully and an undereducated boor. It does not make sense when you are comparing the mad bomber guy to a fellow who graduated from as high or a higher quality university than he did( probably higher...im taking a wild guess that the bomber guy did not go to the Ivy League) and was a professor at a more prestigious university than than the bomber/professor guy.


ok i guess Bill Ayers, the mad bomber guy, went to Columbia teachers college for his masters and Michigan fo rhis B.A. Columbis is Ivy League, but Obama still wins on points. Look up Ventura's background on wikipedia if you want a good laugh.


Medved is a mixed bag - he is a neocon - BAD ! but has some good moments as an interviewer and brings on guests from the left a fair amount and tries to stay civil in his interviews. He is wise enough to know that Palin is not presidential material, unlike some talkers on the right.

You and I could do a blog on Mikes and Michaels in the radio biz and have plenty of content.
