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.

"If I had a nickel for every sucker..."

OTOH, why, exactly, is this a network? Don't networks, by definition, require affiliates - either broadcast stations or cable systems? Why is GBTV.com a "network" rather, than, you know, a web site?

glenn beck is an interesting cat. he has skills in being able to reach some folks, just not my cup of tea. but to deny he has skills, some may call it hucksterism, is to miss the point.

but yeah, pete, i know what you mean, those 'suckers' are also known as 'low information voters.'
al gore took advantage of many of 'em, even got folks on this blog who still think that 'carbon offsets' are on the up and up. right, joanie sombrero?

Johnny Sombrerro

He'll probably come back to Puget Sound(not the idiot above me) but the body of water and throw himself in.


PSB, I'll be the first to give Beck props for having talent. He's very, very good at what he does. The problem is that what he does is sell unhinged conspiracy theories to the credulous, and laugh all the way to the bank.

JS, it would never occur to Beck to throw himself into a body of water. He thinks he can walk on it.

Nye, Eve

I think Beck (and Limbaugh and all those Fox dummies) and even local Jerkoff In Chief, Dori Monson) don't actually believe the crap they spew. I think they are all just in it for the money.

I don't know if such a thing is available, but anybody have any income statistics for these people?


I usually don't listen to Beck on the radio - I prefer Bob Rivers on KJR-FM. Not necessarily my cup of chai either. However, he has talent and seems to do his homework on various topics, and is too quick with the conspiracy theories and hard to take him seriously.

Beck's TV show is better than his radio gig and he did a fine research job on Mr. Soros, who immediately sent a few of his henchmen over the Fox News to request that he get taken off the air. Seems like Soros was annoyed with him disseminating too much information that Soros wanted to keep hush-hush. Now he is off Fox News - they parted fairly amicably - according to credible sources, but he has popped up somewhere else - OMG - his own TV network, but am sure it won't last long - right ? (sarc)

Arty Ziff

I really can't wait for Dori to graduate to Fox News and be out of our hair...


Amen to that, Arty Ziff.


Anybody see John Carlson on O'Reilly tonight? He did a fine job on covering the Longshoremen thugs criminal invasion in Longview Thursday.

Johnny Sombrerro

No we didn't see it, but thanks for alerting us to a far worse form of thuggery in the name of herr Reilly. Keep up the guard shack duty, chucks.


if these longshoremens apes have to stoop so low and ignoranr as to pull crap like the invasion in Longview, it really proves that they could never make the six figure salaries many of them make, out in the nonunion, general job world, competing head to head with men much brighter than them. I do not oppose unions...these peple should appreciate what they have as far as salary and so forth and be realistic.

Oh JOANIE Sombrero, even YOU should know that John Carlson is one of the more talented local talkers. He even hosted Rush for three hours.


Public Sector Unions like the one below are the ones that have to go - the private sector unions have a justified cause. Here it is..

hey KS
I love that clip.
wonder if he spends time up in Birch Bay...LMAO



It seems like the current President condones this type of behavior in the name of his re-election campaign. When it comes to asking him to denounce it, all we hear are flimsy excuses like he didn't hear or see it or just crickets chirping.

Grape Stomper

KS was missing in action when Rand Paul goons were beating a woman in the gutter for simply asking a question. KS has cognitive disorder issues.


Grape Stomper - Show us the evidence then lest you be called a liar.


Rumor is Beck could not get the appropriate permits from the EPA to open a factory within 2000 miles of the Sacramento River so as to not harm snail darters.
He will likely build his factory in Guatemala. That will save his employees a fortune in commuting costs.

Söylenti Beck salyangoz darters zarar vermeyecek şekilde Sacramento Nehri'nin 2000 km mesafedeki bir fabrika açmak için çevre uygun izin alamadım.
O muhtemelen Guatemala fabrika inşa edecek. Onun çalışanların yol masrafları bir servet kazandıracak.
