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.

Pete

Why, Obama hasn't done a damn thing to catch us real terrorists! Right, Osama?

Osama?

Bill

Has-beens like Norris and Jon Voight have nothing better to do than criticize Obama. Maybe they should take up gardening.

Chester

7 out of 10 Muslim Somali Pirates agree with Chuck Norris. The other 3 have been shot in the head by Obama.

Chuck Norris -- running for President in a nuthouse near you soon.

Coiler

He rates up there will the all time 'aw shucks' actors. What has he really done beside karate movies and shows and hawking shitbird home athletic equipment?


Der Moderate

What's this have to do with talk radio? Opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one. Must be a bad day/night for the progressive liberal agenda. Hell, as a moderate, this is getting a little far fetched.

KS

If Chuck Norris were a liberal, he'd be the best thing since sliced bread - right ? Coils, Chester and Bill - you are too transparent..

Time to overhaul DHS and streamline it - it has served to bloat government and make it more inefficient than ever - examples - Hurricane Katrina and last year's Gulf oil spill by BP. This would mean reviewing regulations and getting rid of one's that don't fit.

Coiler

No King Shit, Norris is your own, his racists views are the platform of the GOP and your fear of anything non-white.

Funny, you didn't say anything about streamlining DHS when it was in the hands of the GOP.

KS

You are a liar. I felt the same way then. Did you or anyone bring it up then ? Hell no !

Why are you a hater ? Why do you want this country to become a cess pool ? I do not fear Allen West, Condolezza Rice, Marco Rubio and Gov. Sandoval of NV and any non-marxist non-white. Race-baiters like you hate the conservatives and the non-marxists and support the nanny state.

joanie

Shut up, KS. Just shut up.

KS

Mind your own damn business, Joanie Sombrerro.

Radio Queen

Shut up, KS? Mind your own business, Joanie? This blog has become a joke. Hood throws out political bait like it's candy, and the children fight over it.

joanie

Well, maybe you're just too good for us, RQ. There are other blogs you know.

Chester

I actually DO like Norris. He perfectly illustrates what the Republican party has become -- A bunch of ignorant, white, racist, gun-wielding, Bible-thumping bigots.

Next stop for the GOP:

An openly gay, Chinaman, Democrat President.

Pete

I'm with RQ on this one. I've got no problems with disagreeing on politics (or anything else), but, criminy, at least pretend you made it past kindergarten.

And I hate it when those kids are on my lawn, too...

joanie

Yes, you and RQ are a mutual admiration society. I've noticed. As I said, there are lots of blogs out there where people's posts are not controlled and censored. Thankfully, it doesn't happen here even though some of you seem to wish it were.

Radio Queen

I'm not talking about censorship, Joanie. I'm talking about simple self-restraint. The comments I quoted were childish and do nothing to promote intelligent discourse. You, of all people know that, don't you? Or do you just like being of the resident trolls?

Radio Queen

...one of the resident trolls...

joanie

I'm sorry, RQ. I'm not interested in your need to hall monitor. I seem to recall a reactive comment about a crane radio . . . perhaps you might consider your own tendency to judge as you are doing right now. I've bettered you in several discussions and it irks you no end. But continue to play hall monitor if it fits. It's not my place to judge. You've taken over that role. Enjoy it.

KS, shut up.

joanie

Hey, Queen (notice what you named yourself?), I'll be the resident troll and you can be the hall monitor. In reality, that's probably pretty close to what we are. I can live with being the sassy confrontator(not sure that's a word) if you can live with being the hall monitor.

The Queen and the sassy bad girl. I like it.

Kant

This blog makes me feel a little dumber. That is only because there is no fact checking, the comments hold no substance, there is no clear intelligence in the posts (or comments), people here do not know how to use spell checker, and using Obama in a sentence with "he has done" (anything) is like saying 2+2 = 5.

I would guess the majority of you have never turned the TV or radio off long enough to have a valid thought of your own.

That is to be expected in today's society of shills regurgitating the pundits talking points.

If Jones is such a "flack/quack", I would suggest you call him sometime and debate him on the issues you think are crazy. You calling Jones would be like Freud(you) talking to God(Jones).

Before you think I am calling Jones a god, I suggest you take a deep breath and come back to reality for a moment so you can dial the phone number.

KS

RQ is correct, in that she labels Joanie as a resident troll and butinski. In case you've noticed, I'll play down in the gutter to her level (admittedly juvenile), but keep in mind it takes two to tangle.

Once again, I'll reiterate; mind your own business, Joanie and I'll mind mine - but not until that is done.
I don't need this blog like Joanie does, so I don't have a problem moving around, but it won't be to her satisfaction.

Johnny Sombrerro

what?

joanie

Hahaha, you asked for that one, Queen. Hahahahaha.

Now shut up, KS.

KS

Back at ya, Joanie Sombrerro..

KS

Yep, that's the way the progressives/resident trolls like it here- anything goes in their bubble utopia. If others bring facts to the table, it shrinks and threatens their bubble world. I find it envigorating to challenge them and then read their responses that consist largely of strawmen or red herrings, just like the President does in his campaign speeches.

Rick Perry's Ego

Nobody on this blog makes me smile like Joanie. You go girl.

Evet, gibi ilericiler / yerleşik troller, burada herhangi bir şey kendi balonu ütopya gider yolu. Diğerleri masaya gerçekler getirmek durumunda küçülür ve kendi balonu dünyayı tehdit. Ben onlara meydan ve ardından Cumhurbaşkanı kampanya konuşmalarında olduğu gibi büyük ölçüde strawmen veya kırmızı ringa balığı oluşan tepkiler, okumak için envigorating bulabilirsiniz
