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.

What john Curly is to Kiro, was what Brian (Empty)Suits was to the former KKKVI.Their fates shall be the same


Well, he is gay, you know, ergo the tats on the ass.

Lawrence "Larry" Fishkiller

Jim, do you think whatever is on his ass would bust him out of the closet? Cool. Hope Hood gets that picture. Actually, I might like him a little better if I knew he was one of The Gay.


My Gaydar goes off, Larry. Doesn't yours?


today Curley was going on about soem hillbily lady who wore a bikini top to Walmart and was thrown out. He first tried to make a joke about her teeth but producer Jason stepped on his punch li0ne. The joke was old and cornball and should have been blocked by Jason from ever getting ove the air but the great Curley was extremely annoyed and condescending to Jason for interrruptong him unintentionally. "Jason what am i going to do with you" he said with an asshole's petulant, arrogant edge to his voice , before delivering the hoary old, unfunny punchline. Then he wenyt on to deliver an impression of the hypothetical shopper busybody who Curley was convinced was the one who complained about the lady's top. Thwe impressio0n was mildly humorous at best , but Jessica gave it a great big horselaugh anf giggle, really kissing John's butt. Curley thought so highly of his impression that he repeated it a couple times more.Incredibly, though , there IS a worse radio team than Curley and Gottesman. An Ass named Mike Slater comes on a San Diego talk staiton, KKFMB, AT 6 AM WEEKDAYS, with a newswoman/sidekick type and deliverS the phoniest, most annoyingly RINKY DINK sounding show I'ver ever heard. The sidekick woman makes Gottesman's hollow laughter seem downright sincere. This morning they were talkin g about a marine who invited a starlet to the Marins Ball. The celebrity declined but sent some big bottles of champagne. The sidekick woman upon hearing Slater tell this last part of the story about the champagne breaks into rollicking , loud peals of horselaughing, as if she's just heard the funniest joke of the century. These are the two biggest and stupidest lamers on radio.

Curly is even more insufferable than dori. Having read about his mean streak here, I never heard him until this week. I am really surprised he has a job. If I had to compare hm to anyone it would be that douche from Illinois, joe (I'm not in the Eagles) walsh. curly would make a perfect federal teabagger. A selfish, mean, knuckle dragging luddite. Every solution for him is 'common sense',and I agree that this, 'his sneering get-a-job-solutions for young unemployed people made homeless in the deep recession...'reveals him to be one of the most painfully odious people in radio around here.
Does he really have the numbers that warrant his continued employment in Seattle?

Mike Barer

Curley will be gone when election season rolls around next year. He may have trouble defending his record on the city council (he doesnt have much of one) but a familiar name in a Red district may be all he needs.


I actually liked hearing what I did hear of Curley filling in for Dori, but just kept getting fed up with Jessica.
Tune away to KTTH and KOMO, then check back later...
Not sure why she's there.
The whispering...
But yeah, Curley has a place in Seattle radio...
He obviously pushes the liberal's buttons.


I like listening to Curley. He is smart, edgey, fast, does a ton of charitable work - puts his money to work where and when it is needed. I get the impression he speaks to a listener 97.3 would like to cultivate. Time will tell...but it is clearly more up lifting than listening to "drag you down to my level Dori".


Hoteles Huelva, one word - ASSIMILATE..por favor...

Jim Smith

I just wish they'd dump Dori once and for all. At least John's voice is not annoying to listen to. I agree he's not the best (Ross & Burbank are the best, IMO), but he's far better than Dori.


I had to endure a small portion of "the john curley show" a few days ago. I was waiting for Coast to Coast AM. Anyway, him and some other guy were talking about how great they are for the planet, because they ride bicycles (to work? I don't know) And Curley said with the most smug voice...that he spent 7 or 8 thousand dollars on his bike. Who the hell does that? He's a moron, don't like him...never have...he's GAY.
