Matt Drudge, editor of the widely-read Drudge Report, has revealed just how low he’ll stoop when he doesn’t like someone. Drudge’s attacks on Mike Huckabee in recent days has revealed just how much of a tabloid his site is.
Today he attacks Huckabee’s most recent Christmas campaign video with this headline: Huckabee Ad Features ‘Floating Cross’. Go ahead, watch the video. And you’re going to run this as a “scoop”? Sounds like a headline I’d see in the checkout aisle of the grocery store, right next to Scientists Plan To Blow Up Moon, Say It Will Fertilize Earth.
Worse yet, he quotes Ron Paul as saying: “When fascism comes it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.” Sinclair Lewis actually said it, but… Fascism? Maybe RP was just caught off guard, but… Fascism?
Even if Huckabee did put it in there on purpose. Is that so bad? He did wish everyone a Merry CHRISTmas after all. Probably best if he’d have said “From all of us here at the Huckabee campaign, we wish you a Happy Winter Solstice Holiday!”
Too bad, Drudge used to be my addiction.
