Yes We C… Yes It Has!

by Jim Newell

Just to reiterate, but isn’t it funny that the Republicans nominated the guy Matt Drudge hates more than anyone? [Drudge Report]

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Matt Drudge is just jealous he saw a dildo bigger than himself.

tunamelt August 6, 2008 at 5:53 pm

I find it hard to comprehend anything Matt Drudge writes without the aid of an animated gif.

columnv August 6, 2008 at 5:53 pm

I like it when Drudge wears that stupid fucking hat that makes him look like a 1920′s sleuth.

Good job, asshat!

Canuckledragger August 6, 2008 at 5:53 pm

What’s that tiny object in the screen grab? Drudge’s penile implant?

Spence August 6, 2008 at 5:54 pm

What, no sirens?

tunamelt August 6, 2008 at 5:55 pm

[re=53502]Canuckledragger[/re]: anal probe! for aliens!

wheelie August 6, 2008 at 5:55 pm

Why is AP headlining this story as being about ‘tide pressure’? Is Barack Obama really King Canute?

tunamelt August 6, 2008 at 5:56 pm

[re=53502]Canuckledragger[/re]: Or an antigravity space pen.

weirdiowasculpture August 6, 2008 at 5:56 pm

So the guy who’s main claim to fame is breaking the blow job story is now shocked that politics has been so trivialized that we’re arguing over whether keeping your tires inflated saves energy?

The Real JR Revisted August 6, 2008 at 5:57 pm

[re=53488]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: I totally thought it was a dildo at first blush.

Which actually says more about me than anything.

wheelie August 6, 2008 at 5:57 pm

[re=53502]Canuckledragger[/re]: It’s an ergonomic hash pipe, I think. Now I’m even more confused.

Fata Morgana August 6, 2008 at 5:57 pm

That’s a rectal thermometer, right?

weirdiowasculpture August 6, 2008 at 5:57 pm

Can we please get the SWIM girl back up above the Cindy McCain wanted poster please? I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.

The Real JR Revisted August 6, 2008 at 5:58 pm

Seriously though. It amazes me how even though his site is wildly followed, he still hasn’t updated the look of it since, what, Prodigy?

GlennBecksTaint August 6, 2008 at 6:02 pm

i once saw matt drudge eating arugula and drinking chardonnay

Canuckledragger August 6, 2008 at 6:02 pm

[re=53514]wheelie[/re]: I think you’re right. Let me just check with Rivers Cuomo, OK?

EnBuenOra August 6, 2008 at 6:05 pm

I don’t see what Drudge would be complaining about. A Democratic triumvirate would allow him 4,000,000 screeching flashing light emergency headlines per day.

pinko-commie August 6, 2008 at 6:05 pm

Matt Drudge is such a fucking idiot we can no longer use that term for anyone else, except current and former members of the Bush administration. He can’t stand that someone has made a valid point that shows that the Republictards desire to drill, drill, drill everywhere they fucking can is short-sighted and of no benefit to our current oil/gas-troubles.

God, I can’t live through another four years of a Republican presidency.

Mr Blifil August 6, 2008 at 6:08 pm

Looks like a rejected character from Wall-E.

Drudge I mean.

fishcanoeski August 6, 2008 at 6:08 pm

Someone should send Drudgy this article.


I would but his site gives me flashbacks of when I worked on my high school newspaper.

AxmxZ August 6, 2008 at 6:11 pm

Check out the “smoochies” picture of Barry and Hillary at the top of the page. Heh.

sike101 August 6, 2008 at 6:12 pm

has JOURNALISM come to this? Robert Novack must be rolling over in his grave, er, wait….

what, too soon?

The Incomparable Tiny Valdez August 6, 2008 at 6:39 pm

And his name! Wouldn’t you have changed it before you embarked on a career of asshattery? Connotations abound: Dredge, Sludge, Drugs, Dregs, Druids…

Speed Ball August 6, 2008 at 6:39 pm

That’s not tire-change we can believe in.

kellygrrrl August 6, 2008 at 6:40 pm

oh, matt, it’s almost as cool as a “cigar”
maybe you can find obama’s tire gauge and run some DNA tests on it

loudmouthredhead August 6, 2008 at 6:40 pm

[re=53505]tunamelt[/re]: Damn, you beat me to it.
Yes, Matt, is has come time for you to be sodomized with a tire pressure gage. Long overdue, in fact.

Sinfonian84 August 6, 2008 at 6:55 pm

[re=53515]Fata Morgana[/re]: I swear I hadn’t seen your comment before I discovered what Drudge really meant:


bitchincamaro August 6, 2008 at 7:10 pm

[re=53574]The Incomparable Tiny Valdez[/re]: fudge (packer)

Jim Newell August 6, 2008 at 7:26 pm

[re=53531]pinko-commie[/re]: umm, the point is that he’s making fun of mccain for making this a campaign issue…

wheelie August 6, 2008 at 7:42 pm

It’s August; silly season. Even your intrepid and earnest scoop-artist Matt Drudge is yawning at the headlines. Shouldn’t everyone just take the rest of the month off?

JeffGoldblum August 6, 2008 at 7:52 pm

[re=53605]Jim Newell[/re]: Um, last I checked Matt Drudge’s only campaign issue was “doing guys” like all the time. Dude’s gay.

f0r R3aLz0r!!!

JeffGoldblum August 6, 2008 at 7:53 pm

Oh yeah, and vote Hillary(z0r).

jagorev August 6, 2008 at 8:04 pm

[re=53518]The Real JR Revisted[/re]: Personally, I think the Drudge design is timeless, sort of like how the New Yorker’s look hasn’t changed in 80+ years. I like how it doesn’t even remotely try to be fashionable. Designers dream of being able to come up with this kind of lasting power… you may laugh now, but eventually (around 2070) the Drudge homepage will be featured in a MoMA retrospective.

wheelie August 6, 2008 at 8:27 pm

[re=53627]jagorev[/re]: Right. And Britain’s Tate Modern will be celebrating this timeless design classic around about the same time.

jagorev August 6, 2008 at 9:33 pm

[re=53640]wheelie[/re]: And generations of college students will sit through Art History lectures where they discuss the finer points of LOLCAT form and the post-colonial meta-narrative of 2 girls 1 cup (in fact, given that those girls were in Brazil doing a shoot commissioned by a white American, I could hammer out a 10 page paper on this right now).

wheelie August 6, 2008 at 9:49 pm

[re=53668]jagorev[/re]: Oh you could write a paper right now? Ooh, I’m so scared. I guess I will see you at the symposium in Amsterdam in 2065 when I deliver my Cats on Treadmills public lecture, and we will find out then who is the more astute internets historian. See you in 57 years, bitch!

shortsshortsshorts August 6, 2008 at 10:13 pm

[re=53531]pinko-commie[/re]: WHAT? REPUBLICANS WANT TO DRILL? I am in hell right now. Please someone get a throw up bag from Delta for like $30.00 and ask if they can take it out of the stow away charges. It’s nice to see a troll from the left however. Very refreshing.

gliberal August 6, 2008 at 10:42 pm

I think Matthew shat in his hat.

gliberal August 6, 2008 at 10:43 pm

PS what’s the deal with the American Apparel girl in the swimsuit. She’s on here every night and she’s starting to get to me.

RuperttheBear August 6, 2008 at 10:53 pm

“You should all take the tires off your rims, and drive around making sparks and shit.” –John McCain.

shortsshortsshorts August 6, 2008 at 11:05 pm

[re=53697]RuperttheBear[/re]: Oh good he’s appealing to the Oakland folks now. Hyphy. Perhaps later we can all murder-out our bikes and wield a knife for Wheat Thins.

glamourdammerung August 6, 2008 at 11:09 pm

I think the GOP needs to go back to having Senator Larry Craig be their spokesperson regarding drilling.

Lionel Hutz Esq. August 6, 2008 at 11:22 pm

Oh, this is about the campaign. I thought Drudge was just letting us know the only thing he can get off with any more.

[re=53540]sike101[/re]: What? Did he decided to stay in it this time?

valobama August 6, 2008 at 11:32 pm

[re=53697]RuperttheBear[/re]: you said rims

WonkaBee August 6, 2008 at 11:39 pm

[re=53640]wheelie[/re]: oh my god

I think you have indeed found the worst site design of all time.

Put me in the column of admirers of DrudgeDesign, though. Especially after that abomination….

Canmon (the Inadequate) August 6, 2008 at 11:50 pm

[re=53536]fishcanoeski[/re]: That article’s estimates of the amount of oil produced by drilling offshore is based on a 2003 estimate that assumed a $50 barrel oil in 2010. The price is already more than twice that. Oil companies will be able to invest more and produce more if they are getting today’s higher price.

Moreover, the savings by the inflation of tires would only occur if every single person went out and inflated their tires to the proper level immediately upon Obama telling them to do so. McCain’s plan is would result in real increases in supply. Obama’s plan is a thought experiment.

McCain could tell everyone to stop commiting crimes. If everyone obeyed him it would be an effective crime plan but is it realistic? Obama seems to think the power of his words will heal the world but doesn’t seem to be offering real world solutions.

Darehead August 7, 2008 at 12:06 am

I guess we can go to Drudge for probing news anal-ysis.

sanantonerose August 7, 2008 at 1:07 am

Looks like a slide whistle to me! Oh yeah!

TGY August 7, 2008 at 4:28 am

Just…can’t…take…the pressure. Oh, wait. Now I can.

[re=53739]sanantonerose[/re]: Hahaha, dirty. Hm.

BobLoblawLawBlog August 7, 2008 at 7:56 am

Drudge actually made me click on his headline to find out what the hell that thing was, which got me thinking: He should replace the siren with an object so inscrutable and random, it forces people to click to find out what it is. Item 1: McCain’s removed blotch of skin…

Darehead August 7, 2008 at 9:00 am

Obama is too elitist to know how to use a tire gauge. Like when Bush, Sr. went to a supermarket for the first time in 40 years and didn’t know what a bar code was.

liquiddaddy August 7, 2008 at 11:39 am

I find those things very handy for smoking crack.

trophy(forparticipation)wife August 7, 2008 at 12:50 pm

Are these ‘Obama Economic Plans’ made in China?

textbasedboy August 7, 2008 at 6:20 pm

The best part of this headline is that Drudge has spent all week headlining the Obama=Paris Hilton=celebrite=elitist=bad ad, but he points out Obama’s comment on tire pressure as being some sort of ridiculous scheme. At least Obama is able to stick to policy matters when poking fun at McCain.
