What Racist Bombshell Will Matt Drudge Drop Tonight?

Could it be ... Satan?
Above is an important tweeter that noted journalism maven Matt Drudge loosed upon a bored, Tuesday-before-the-debate-slow-newsday world.

But what, WHAT could be on this tape that Ghost Andrew Breitbart hasn’t already dropped???

The answer, of course, to this Sphinx riddle shit, is “nothing.” Because in order for it to ignite accusations of racism “from both sides,” it would have to be Republicans doing something racist, and Democrats racistly pointing it out. And since Matt Drudge loves Miffed Romney like Peggy Noonan loves gin, this whole thing is some Romney-Rice 2012-level nonsense and Matt Drudge is just as bored as the rest of us.

    Dude, has Drudge's Hat just cold gotten bigger and bigger through the years or am I crazy? Fedora just ain't cuttin' it anymore.

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      His fedora had sex with a top hat and what you see up there is the progeny of that mating.

      Ya gots ta do it right, the Richard Pryor way:

      1. MosesInvests

        Or Tyrone Green, prison poet:
        "I hate the day, I hate the night,
        I hate white folks because they's white."

      If it was that important a tape, he'd have made sure it was released in time for the evening news. As it is, it looks like he's angling for a spot on Hannity.

      EDIT: Holy shit I was right! He's going to release it on Hannity!

    1. UnholyMoses

      Only the assignment editors of major media outlets, and wingnut bloggers.

      Otherwise, not so much.

      1. ChrisM2011

        I remember our main editor would have his site up on her computer every day but that was what- the 60's?

        1. UnholyMoses

          Seems like it. And dude hasn't updated his site since then, either.

          It really is fucking pathetic how the guy gets so much run, and all because one fubugly broad gave him info about Clinton getting a hummer from some slightly less (but still) fubugly intern.

          That's it.

          That's the beginning and the end (the alpha and omega, if you will) of what he's contributed to society: being part of the longest, most expensive, and utterly and totally fucking pathetic witch hunts against a sitting President since forever.

          1. ChrisM2011

            Same thing with Fox News, I seem to recall. In the 90's, their numbers were abysmal (Like maybe 60,000-90,000 viewers?) but then Linda Tripp came along and the rest is history. Sad, horrible history.

          2. PhilippePetain

            Can you imagine what history would have been like if that one single act/story hadn't happened? Fucking Mr. Fusion in every home, Arabs and Israelis singing in the streets, Backstreet Boys never happened… I would give an arm to see that parallel universe.

        2. Guppy

          Yes, back in those innocent days, when congressional prostitution rings and ass-fucking were shocking.

      2. actor212

        There's a woman in my office who swears by his website.

        I told her, one lucky plant twenty years ago is about as accurate as my dead aunt Zelda.

      1. Esteev

        From pdiddy's link. Is this comment a Poe? You decide!

        "Liberals won’t understand however we Constitutional Conservatives are not surprised by this story. You see the laimstream media portrays us as the minority when in fact the liberals are the minority. We also are no longer the silent majority, we are going to stomp ass every election until we root out all Marxist from both parties!"

    2. Lionel[redacted]Esq

      I gave up Drudge for lent about five years ago, and have never regretted it once. I only go back on really bad Conservative days to see how they are trying to spin whatever their latest embarrassment is.

    3. Chet Kincaid_

      The early HuffPo was an obvious liberal counterpoint to Drudge, and opened the floodgates to the notion, "why are we relying on this asshole for all of our leads?!"

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      I had a subscription for a while, but I found that I would get so fucking angry when I read it that I was afraid I would stroke out or have a heart attack, so I let the subscription lapse…

      1. Terry

        I found out recently who the original Mother Jones was. In the early part of the 20th century (could be around 1912, but I may be off by a year or two), the United Mine Workers were trying to organize coal miners in West Virginia and Pennsylvania (including my grandfather). The mining companies would hire "security" who would shoot or otherwise attack any union reps going into the mining camps. Mother Jones, an Irish immigrant in her 80's, would walk up to the camps along the stream beds which were public lands. She used her age and gender to sign up miners for the union, basically daring the mining companies to shoot an old lady. She was also critical in the banning of child labor in mills and mines.

        1. PhilippePetain

          Yeah. It's things like that that make it hard not to get pissed of when friend-of-a-friend hippie/Paultard/losers say that there's nothing a person can do to change anything. I really just want to tell them "well, a whole lot of union folks a hundred years ago were willing to get shot so you could have a few days off, so maybe you should just stop whining." but then that would probably sound like something a republican would say to them, because they're all pussies with smooth brains.

        2. FeloniousMonk

          Also a co-founder of the Wobblies, bless their little cotton socks. If anyone here can remove the "citation needed" from this quote on Wikipedia, I'll be grateful forever till Thursday.

          when she was denounced on the floor of the United States Senate as the "grandmother of all agitators," she replied "I hope to live long enough to be the great-grandmother of all agitators."

    1. coolhandnuke

      I know what it isn't….something that a winning Mitt Romney will never cross come November.

  3. finallyhappy

    I'm going to see Looper so I'll have to check back on the new updated BIrth of A Nation when I get home

    1. docterry6973

      Now don't be nasty. I bet Drudge is a simple son of the prairie and has good reason to dress like that. A reason that in no way makes him a pathetic poseur.

  4. Mumbletypeg

    Well Drudge: I hope whatever it is significantly disappoints conservatards if they cannot fling it like poo, and libs if it proves our folly for having paid an ounce of attention more to your sorry ass than it deserves.

  5. UnholyMoses

    "WHAT could be on this tape that Ghost Andrew Breitbart hasn’t already dropped??? "


    No, sorry. Brietbart has probably dropped some of that.

  6. veritass

    Drudge Report looks like a serial killer's notebook. Hey Matt, here's a hint: you don't need to put an ellipsis at the end of every sentence.

    1. Negropolis

      On another forum I read there is poster who does that after literally EVERY sentence. It's nothing but a giant paragraph with ellipses at the end of every sentence.

  7. Terry

    Romney is going to break the news to African-Americans that one of Obama's parents was caucasian and thus they shouldn't vote for him.

  8. ManchuCandidate

    It's from Blazing Saddles.

    Olson Johnson: All right… we'll give some land to the N-words and the chinks. But we don't want the Irish!
    [everyone complains]
    Olson Johnson: Aw, prairie shit… Everybody!"

  9. SoBeach

    Is this it? The October Surprise? The game changer? The thing everyone will be talking.abou…..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  10. HRH_Maddie

    I hope the bombshell isn't that Obama's half black. I've had my suspicions for years, but I really hope they aren't confirmed tonight.

  11. i_AM_ready

    It's Romney screaming at and firing an African American household servant. And the "both directions" part is that George Will says it just shows how far we've come.

  12. MissTaken

    Michelle Obama with a bowl of neopolitan ice cream, but she only eats the strawberry part. She blatantly ignores the chocolate and vanilla – in both directions!

  13. Tequila Mockingbird

    Yawn. It's probably some crayon drawing Barry did in the third grade. I love the smell of eleventh-hour desparation.

    1. savethispatient

      Something I've been wondering: why do we call her Egg? Is it because she's delicate and white? Or because she has to be kept in the fridge lest she smell bad?

      1. actor212


        Ann Veal
        None of the Bluths with the exception of George Michael can remember Ann's name. In the Year Book she is listed as "Not Pictured" under her photograph, although they did print a retraction in the spring supplement.[14][15] Michael disapproves of his son's relationship with Ann and refers to her variously (and always accidentally) as "Bland," "Egg," "Annabel," "Yam," "Plant," "Plain," and "Ann Hog." He once abandons her in Mexico accidentally.[17] Maeby takes pleasure in referring to Ann as "Bland".[18] George Michael tells Maeby that Ann is "not bland" when forced to defend his love interest.[18]

  14. Callyson

    Yeah, why do I think this is going to be the right wing's answer to the promises from Julian Assange and Co that a major release of documents indicting the banks would soon be released…unless I missed something, still waiting…

  15. hawkny

    Drudge is gonna announce that Senator Sleaze, Scott Brown, of Massachusetts, was really born on Atlanta, Georgia, where he learned the Indian chop, first hand, as the wigwam boy for the Atlanta Braves. At 16, he drove his red pick up truck up north, when he moved to the Bay State, and proudly states that he perfected the chop move, all the way up I-95, while waving at 18-wheelers. Unfortunately, he only perfected the left handed version, which explains why he keeps his right hand in his right rear pocket most of the time.

  16. actor212

    Trix, apparently, its something from 6 years ago.


    Lemme think….six years ago would be 2006…Romney was running in 2006, but Obama hadn't announced yet…

    Oh, please let Chief Editor Korir be behind this!

    1. Guppy

      Please, a steampunk version of Romney was running in 1896.

      Hell, he may have even shot McKinley, all Terminator-like.

        1. Guppy

          The jolt of Edison's electric chair seemed to stop the heart of "Leon Czolgosz," but in truth he had no pulse to begin with. His "corpse" later disappeared from the morgue, heading to Mexico, to wait…

  17. IceCreamEmpress

    Headline says "racist bombshell" but there are no pix of Victoria Jackson, Janine Turner, or Michelle Malkin.

    Thread does not deliver.

      1. IceCreamEmpress

        She's a bombshell for racists. I am equally mystified, though I suspect some variation of the Bugs Bunny Syndrome that makes wingers think Ann Coulter is hawt.

  18. Toomush_Infer

    I don't know – if I see that video of Michelle back in the day, jeans and headband, shouting "Fuck Whitey" again, I'm gonna cum in my pants….

  19. kittensdontlie


    Who is the only black person Dems revile, and Repubs can also with his white wife:

    Clarence Thomas!!

  20. CalvinsChoice

    Could anyone over the age of 13 possibly think those shades and that hat make him look cool?

    1. anniegetyerfun

      There are definitely developers at my office who believe that nothing says "badass" like being a zit-covered, pasty white 25 year-old male wearing a leather duster.

      1. Pragmatist2

        And good news for Strom Thurmond who not only did father a black child, but also could use some good news.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      Yes and nothing to do with the abject evil racist stupidity of the Republican party whatsoever. God I still love the "How's He Doing" skit from SNL with Maya Rudolph and the whole debate on what it would take for black people not to vote for him, like if he cheated on Michelle –

      Host: No, no, no — he is in love… with Ke$ha.
      Althea Davis: [ shaking her head] Mmm-mmm! I do not like it, but I am okay with it as long as he does'nt move in with her.
      Host: He moves in and they have a joint bank account.
      Althea Davis: Oooooh, no! No, no, no! [ she shakes her head ]
      Host: Does he still have your vote?
      Althea Davis: [ a beat ] He does.

  21. mustangsavvy

    Matt Drudge is the gunman on the grassy knoll, the missing Jimmy Hoffa and for good measure, the sixth Spice Girl! Drudge Spice, if you please.

    Tape Dropping (2012)

    Romney, deeply immersed in the Utah milk scene, tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the tax shelters and influence of friends, which, of course, are corporations.

      1. weejee

        Brownie doing a good job with Katrina? No, that was 2005 – seven years back. Six years back, six years back??? Got it, Mark Foley blew his Congressional Seat.

  23. coolhandnuke

    Some grainy old Beta of Obama drinking a White Russian with a black woman in Stalingrad.
    Or is it Obama drinking a Black Russian with a white man in Leningrad.

      1. Chet Kincaid_

        Oh Gawd, remember when Imus ruled the mornings of MSNBC? I perversely enjoyed punishing myself with that show, and yet, do not miss it at all. The whole show was based on the shtick of having connected media types sit there and listen to the racist producer's nasty jokes, and daring them to enjoy it. Morning Blowhard doesn't have any entertainment value, just roundtables of dickishness.

  24. Mojopo

    Let me guess. Sen. Obama at Taste of Chicago rejecting a Mexican burrito in favor of the Muslin falafel.

  25. Preferred Customer

    As of right now, clicking on the Drudge headline takes you directly to a Romney donation page.

  26. CalvinsChoice

    It's a video of the first meeting between Ann Romney and Barack Obama. Although the audio is not of the best quality, it sounds like she asks the president to "bust up a chifferobe".

  27. Preferred Customer

    Oh, god, now it says:



    Seriously? It is a bombshell because of the "accent?" Which I assume must be a Hawaiian accent, right? Does he keep referring to people as "da kine" and saying "brah?"

    Or possibly it's just a really obnoxious Northern Cities Vowel Shift?

  28. Schmannnity

    Click on the Drudge headline and it redirects to a donate to Romney site. Seems unbiased to me.

  29. Mittens Howell, III

    Drudge: 6 year old Obama video tape surfaces! You heard it here 3, 741, 426, 697th!!!

  30. Negropolis

    I think it will be that Obama is found out to have fathered two black children with a black woman from the Southside of Chicago.

  31. fitley

    It's videotape of a seance with Breitbart and Obama's father. Obama's father is calling Breitbart a cracker. At the end of the tape they show Tucker talking into a cardboard tube pretending to be Breitbart and Obama's father.
