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.

John Curley. Isnt he the other Kramer


There is a really nasty, ugly email being circulated right now by a White Power group ( a friend received it and has NO idea how she got on their list) that makes it sound like this is not over in Spokane. Hayden Lake was cleaned out, but they just moved to another part of the state. I am pretty sure the Southern Poverty Law group is aware of the email but it was really scary.

It doesn't sound like John C. is doing much more than keeping busy until something else comes along. I bet he ends up as a spokesperson for some highly visible company who wants a familiar face to represent them.


The Aryan Nations tried to take over Hayden ran for City Council as their last gasp(and their founder an for Mayor), to say they got whooped is an understatement. The incumbent won with 90+% of the vote rather than elect they guy who gave the area a bad name. Didn't help that one of their guys was in jail for a hate crime while campaigning.



Listen up JC! This is good advice.


Hey, KIRO evenings could be a lot worse than Curley.
I hear a bit sometimes when turning on a radio that was at KIRO earlier in the day and Curley is fine for those few minutes as long as he isn't giggling with Mike West.
He just started, give him a chance.
You people really want Frank Shiers back?
That's right...
I said "you people!"

dave (not dave ross)

On tuesdays Curley is at the Sammammish city council meetings so there is always a guest host. Last time Mike West filled in and i have to say i found him calmer and more entertaining and he has a great voice. That would be my choice for kiro evenings everynight.


how quickly forget... he's not Frank Shiers.


I like Curley, alot of people out here like Curley. They find him quick, smart, edgy and yet, "real"...So what if he isn't a radio "professional", whatever that might look like...I think that might be a plus, considering the "chit chat" by some of the other on air "professionals". I'll take Curley.



You've got to be either his wife or Mom?


Nick, Nah...just like listening to something a little different on the radio.


John Curely's new show is flat out garbage. Evening Magazine gets cancelled because it was god awful and now in desperation he turns to 97.3 polluting the airwaves with stereotypical conservative vitriol. Curely's show consists of him talking about a headline and then ranting about how it was caused by Democrats, "liberal media" and the "liberal agenda". He often defends and rationalizes conservatives for making offensive, racist and bigoted comments by comparing them to liberal soundbites that are taken way out of context. It is no secret that John has a very unsavory reputation around the Seattle area for being a rude, arrogant prick. He also has had several accusations of racism against him from co-workers at his previous employers. Hopefully this douche bag will get kicked off the air soon.

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.
