Drudge is probably secretly happy. If Obama is elected, Old Matty will be taking easy potshots an incumbent rather than trying to defend the indefensible actions of the Bushies.

I actually thought the right wing would take this a little bit better than they are. I just got really freaking depressed for like three months when Kerry lost so I figured they would just be sad for a while. To see the fact that they are literally losing their shit before our eyes is truly glorious.

Since his taxes will likely go up, he has to cut back on his use of the space bar and appropriate capitilization. When the Marxist Muslims come to power, it always the whiney talentless link-farmers who are worst hurt.

He’s fucking drunk. Leave him alone.

Lionel Hutz Esq. October 27, 2008 at 10:05 pm

The interesting thing is that there is no story. It seems that Msr. Drudge must have had a stroke and just typed out his last hope. The one thing I’ll give him is that it is more coherent than anything Hannity says.

And the fact that Drudge has moved off of “Obama is a secret socialist” story shows that that wasn’t working.

[re=151746]rocktonsammy[/re]: That is because the answer is obvious. Of course FNC is wrong.

It’s glorious.

jagorev October 27, 2008 at 10:23 pm

Remember how all-powerful Drudge seemed to be at the start of this year? Remember how Hillary Clinton had a special staff member just for Drudge outreach? These days, he can barely even move the news cycle an inch, no matter how many sirens he unleashes. The problem is, there’s real news happening in the world, and Drudge has no idea how to deal with that. He keeps throwing his partisan bullshit talking-points, but they’re just not sticking like they used to. No uptake in the mainstream media. Watching Drudge slowly his mind and influence has been even more fun than watching the ongoing implosion of the GOP.

organiccoffee October 27, 2008 at 10:23 pm

It would be poetic justice if an Obama win drives some wingnutes to complete madness. I would settle for Drudge – it would be fun to see him mumbling on the street “But he should’ve lost. Whites will never elect a black president.” That would be bonus.

I am usually not this mean but I hate these mingnutes particularly today.

Texan Bulldoggette October 27, 2008 at 10:26 pm

[re=151813]Q2[/re]: Why is Drudge such a Republican? It’s not like any of them (other than Mark Foley & Larry Craig) would piss on him if he was on fire. His pandering to those assholes just makes him look sad–like the equipment guy on the football team trying to get the jocks to like him & invite him to the jock parties.

Keram2 October 27, 2008 at 10:32 pm

[re=151778]OffTheRecord[/re]: What scares me is how hard it’s going to be for Obama is going to be able to govern this country with a whole buncha race-baiting rednecks calling him an “illiterate muslin socialist black panther” at every presidential function. Seriously, unless you consider cooking meth a “job,” most of these mouthbreathers are unemployed and have nothing better to do than follow around Obama for four years, passing out “racialist” pamphlets in the parking lots and fucking up assassination plots. Ugh.

I’m assuming that Drudge is just throwing a hissy-fit after learning that Walnuts! is gay.

He probably concluded this after tasting shit on McCain’s dick.

The .416 Cheyenne is better ballastically, and comes with its own computer so that you can program in for things like the rotation of the earth; muzzle, mid-range and target cross-winds, etc.

And it’s legal out here in California.

You know, for “target shooting.”

hockeymom October 27, 2008 at 10:50 pm

I need my fellow Wonketteers to talk me off the ledge.

I spent a couple of hours watching FOX today to get an idea of why my neighbors believe what they believe. It’s incredible…every interview (even Shep, to an extent) starts with the premise that Obama is a radical liberal who is going to steal your money, then goes downhill from there. Actually, I’ll take that back. Major Garrett delivers his packages without any spin. Any every discussion of polls starts with the sentence “polls are tightening”…even if the rest of the story would suggest otherwise.
At the end of the day, I was left with the feeling that Obama was losing. Despite ample evidence to the contrary.

Then, I see this crap the RNC is putting out about Franken. Trust me when I say this will work in Minnesota. My dear mother who still lives in the state says she’s voting for Barkley because something about Franken “just isn’t right”. And this is someone who marches for gay rights and raises money for Planned Parenthood. Coleman’s numbers probably won’t rise, but Franken is going to lose votes to Barkley and it will cost dems a pick-up in congress.

THEN I see that The Tinkster is only about a point ahead of Bachmann. Not a wide enough margin, in that part of the state.

THEN, we learn that yet ANOTHER bunch of crazies were planning to take out Obama. (not to mention people in Iowa are flat out shouting the N word at Palin rallies now).

I keep going back to Nate Silver’s site…to look at the little sliver of pie that shows the chances of McCain actually winning…but it’s not helping.

Please tell me this is going to end well and I’m being hysterical. Because I kind of feel like throwing up.

I think the secret service can take them. Hell I could probably take them (I’m crafty). Plus, they are just worked up about it now cause it is interrupting their Nascar/Judge Judy/Wheel of Fortune. The majority of them are going to forget who is president in a few months and go back to screaming at the damn Jeff Gordan.

I’ve known about Drudge Report for years, but I’ve never been to his site until today. Has it always looked like shit? The stories are on his site are nothing special and the links are terrible ( News 2 in Dinkleyville, AK). I get the impression he sucked a few dicks for one or two big hitters and rode on that fame (e.g. lewinksi ). Am I right? I’m not sure what the big deal is.

[re=151806]twoeightnine[/re]: Let me explain… About 1-2% of every visit to a website generates a click on ads. If you get 250,000 views a day, you’ll make around $250,000 a year even if the content of the website is a cat litter box cam and your users are crazy old cat ladies. If your site attracts people advertisers actually want to reach, the haul can be much bigger.

No, this time, the Hobbits will unmake the Ring of Power. Come in, we’ve got your hand, and have a good brew. TV next week will be better viewing, especially Faux.

Had a nice, long early morning drive that took us through Lyon County- Nv.
Went past the McCain Campaign office downtown.

The windows were dark – not a soul around but for a very old man waiting for the wife to come out of the doorway of the pharmacy nearby. (at first I thought it was John and Cindy)

Competing with the McCain/Palin signs in the window was a bigger sign that eclipsed them all – an OFFICE FOR LEASE sign…already in place.

[re=151823]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Drudge as the Republican “Radio?”

Drudge’s website reminds me of the way people who speak in conspiracy theory save old newspapers and bottles of urine.

So are those Obama’s cheekbones or is he sporting Superfly sideburns?

[re=151882]Keram2[/re]: I guess Courier font and a dorky fedora makes him feel like a real journalist. It will be the end of the Drudge Report very soon.

[re=151902]gjdodger[/re]: Thanks for that….it made me so happy that I almost sent the guy twenty-five bucks, then I remembered Obama was going to spread my wealth for me, so I decided to just let the socialistic marxism kick in. He’ll get the money eventually. Right?

[re=151859]S.Luggo[/re]: Oh my gosh, the Obama is Irish song is the cutest thing ever. Hockeymom, listen to it, and it will make you feel better. (As an African American of Irish descent, like a lot of black people, I was kind of moved.) Any way you listen to it, it was adorable.

[re=151849]hockeymom[/re]: It’s going to end well. You’re being hysterical. Come in off the ledge.

SisterTruth October 28, 2008 at 2:26 am

hockeymom: You’re not hysterical. This is scary because the dems always screw things up, but this time the repubs screwed up even more so it’s going to be okay. And in the spirit of gurukalehuru’s comment, here’s a little line from Shakespeare in love to cheer you up. Replace theatre business with politics. And replace Nothing with “except to volunteer and to vote”

Philip Henslowe: Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business[of politics]. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.
Hugh Fennyman: So what do we do?
Philip Henslowe: Nothing [except to volunteer and to vote.] Strangely enough, it all turns out well.
Hugh Fennyman: How?
Philip Henslowe: I don’t know. It’s a mystery.

[re=152027]SisterTruth[/re]: Okay it is almost certain at this point that you are Tony the Tiger, the Gawker terrorist sent to destroy us all.

SisterTruth October 28, 2008 at 3:12 am

shortsshorts: I’m not telling you not to masturbate. I think it’s very healthy, especially for someone like you who must find it very difficult to find a (willing) partner. Just leave me out of it, dear. Also, the Tony the Tiger insult means nothing to me because I’m not part of your club. Sorry, cela ne signifie rien.

shortsshortsshorts October 28, 2008 at 3:25 am

[re=152032]SisterTruth[/re]: Did you know that you are currently engaging a pair of shorts in serious argument for some reason? For that reason alone I hope you find yourself before you vote. Remember Sister, your vote is only a week and a half away.

I bet you’re voting for the white guy, aren’t cha? You betcha you are. So now I will go back to masturbating all over my objects, that are not people, but merely toys that a person as deperate as I am can play with.
The better question is: where the hell did you come from? Are you the internet Messiah? I am confused these days on which Gawd to worship. Maybe you are that guy Nietsche told everyone about? That would be awesome! Imagine the Ubermof right here on Wonkette? Wow. We have all been blessed with an incedible oppurtunity.

incredible, austainably awesome, absolutely marvelous, sometimes upsurd, always awesome is what I meant by the whole “incedible” spelling issue.

Drudge is the nets version of radio dinosaur, Paul Harvey. I can’t tell the difference between his “reporting” and his “selling”, either.

But I only know that because I wasted my junior year at Berkeley wading through the Hoffman translations.
