Quote of Day


ISN’T THIS LEAKING DIVORCE DETAILS OF A RIVAL kind of an Obama trademark?  I’m just sayin’ . . . .

That would presume Drudge got the tip from an opposing campaign, and forced ABC’s hand to release it prior to South Carolina in order to influence the election.

And there is no proof of any connection between Drudge and another campaign which would warrant such a concern.

Such speculation would be demonic.

Update:  This seems about right:

Spot on, Professor Reynolds! So true!

I love the “withholding” part.
What is clear now is that if they are withholding anything about a Republican, it means there is nothing there, but for Democrats it works the other way.

Did Marianne Gingrich mention the fact that she was doing Newt while he was still married to his first wife (the one who was in the hospital dying of cancer)?

    If I’m ever “dying of cancer”, I sure hope that I do it like Newt’s ex. 20 some years later and she’s still kicking around this veil of tears. Doesn’t stop the agenda driven from attacking Newt with his “dying” wife, of course, but hey, why let the truth get in the may of a good smear?

Love the demonic link!

Yes. Just ask Jack Ryan.

Next question…

I love the quote. It’s literally a page out of Obama’s playbook, and we should be adressing FAR more serious concerns.

But, in defense of Drudge, it’s not like this is the exact type of salacious story that Drudge links to to drive traffic… oh wait… it is exactly the type of story that drives Drudge. Sorry, I just don’t see a conspiracy here. I see a savvy purveyor of links that get people interested.

The rushed out coverage by the Washington Post and ABC [both fully controlled subsidiaries of the Obama campaign] indicates something else. Through this campaign they have largely left Romney alone. There have been a few stories, but they have not pushed them too hard. After all, the fact that Romney’s company has money [legally] in the Cayman’s could be turned around to attack Obama and Biden fairly easily if Romney and the RNC had a measurable testosterone count.

But they are going with a splashy story to try to defeat Newt in the South Carolina primary; and pushing it hard and early. That tells who they fear more.

Note for the record. My preferred candidate is not in the race. In her absence, and with the field we have now; I could at least vote for Gingrich without having to have a janitor mop out the voting booth. He, unlike Romney, will at least stand up and fight to take the White House away from Obama. Romney has never stood up to a Democrat other than trying to run to the LEFT of the Democrat in his political life.

    I wonder if it’s not a case, for Mr. Axelrod, of “who do they fear more” but more finding and using targets of opportunity. Mr. Axelrod wants WHOEVER the Pub nominee is to be as weak and dirtied up as possible, and the sooner the better lest the Pub nominee start to get some traction with the public.

    Mr. Axelrod certainly has reason to fear Newt: Newt is pugnacious so he won’t back down from a brawl, he thinks quickly on his feet, he’s clearly a superb debater, and he’s been at this a long, long time.

    Axelrod certainly has reason to fear Mitt: Mitt is an achiever, he’s innately likable, he’s done well in both the public and private sector, he’s superbly well organized and well funded, and he too has been at this for a long, long time.

    Axelrod knows that his man can’t exactly run on his record, at least outside of the most committed (and I may mean that legally) supporters in their camp. If you can’t run a positive campaign then you run a negative one, and Axelrod will go as low as he has to, count on it.

    While Axelrod doesn’t know who the Pubs will nominate yet, it’s not too early to hack at the most likely nominees, all in the hope of leaving the Pubs dispirited and independents wondering if maybe, perhaps, just possibly they ought to look at Obama again. That’s all Obama needs to win.

    Axelrod knows that, count on it. That’s why (I bet) he’s behind a lot of this.

Since I’m not overly enamored of egomaniacal yellow journalism purveyors, the quaintly costumed Matt Drudge has never impressed me much. That said, as an odd duck he has been useful in the past – and mildly entertaining.

Now that he’s jumped the shark his value as a news source is declining faster than the increase in his bias. He should have stopped reading his own PR years ago. Now, he’s merely another “Dan Rather” wannabe. Sad.
