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.

Cool beans. I wish I could have tagged along. I had the same experience a couple of weeks ago when I attended the town hall of one of my reps. My Rep. and I were the only Dems in the room, and I wouldnt really even call my Rep. a Democrat. I had the opportunity to at least temporarily dispel some of the notions these people had about schools in general, and teachers in particular. I was friendly and open and one told me afterwards that I was "brave" to come to the meeting. I asked her "why"..and she sort of wandered off mumbling..
What happened in the midnight hour in the legislature last night was appalling...

You're old man would have been proud of your return to the Republican Fold... :)

Did you drive over there sporting a bumper-sticker that says:

'Dori Is TO a Boy's Name!'

I've heard rumors that you got one on the back of your car...

Glad to see you out and about a bit. Take care.

If more people would participate in such things, there would be more Republicans. That's a political science FACT.


Please understand; Rachelle and crew are doing a great job of taking over- please hang in and keep sending us tips...

How about following up on the recent posts to the old "Jessica Partners With Dori" story? Curious minds want to know about local radio.


Good effort, Michael. I understood that a number of Ron Paul supporters were unhappy about being turned away due to limited capacity yesterday in a number of locations in both Eastern Washington and locally.

A third party movement could become a reality after the 2012 presidential election if it goes as many predict it might. The Senate and House races are under the radar.

There are others besides Ron Paul supporters that would be there with a third party; Jon Huntsman for one has already said that he is open to that and predicted it. The Republican nominees for president and the seeming lack of support by the party is on shaky ground. However, there was a big turnout in this state for the GOP caucuses. It's too early to tell what that all means though, except that those who attended in general are dissatisfied with the Federal Government as it is and want a change.


I listened to a long discussion on the radio yesterday about this, between a liberal and a conservative. Both agreed that at this time, the incredible amounts of money flowing into the Republicans and the Democrats pockets (thanks to the Citizens United ruling) will prevent a third party from gaining a foothold that would have any impact at all. You are deluding yourself if you think politicians on either side of the aisle care about the average citizen being happy with what they do. The will and desires of the corporation is everything. If you want to have a voice again, whether in the traditional parties or an independent third party, then both sides need to work together to get Citizens United overturned so we can go back to the days when someone was elected based on his or her ideas, rather than which corporation pays for their entry into office.


We are doing our research, RQ, on the sudden disappearance of Jessica from Dori's (a girl's name)show. Did Dori have a hand in her not being with the company anymore? Or is she leaving to spend more time with her family?
Our sources are being a little tight lipped, so we are figuring out ways to loosen those lips. Stay tuned.


I am for having the Citizens United ruling overturned, but not unless McCain-Feingold is overturned at the same time. "Electioneering has become a total travesty.


Watching the Washington Huskies basketball game was a better chose for me, than wasting a half a day driving 15 miles to be with REPUKELCONS!
