  •  I think what happened with 'The Politico' (7+ / 0-)

    is that it got all of's mojo, and I'm sure that Matt Drudge and his band of winged monkeys from the Wizard of Oz are making sure it gets self-reinforcing buzz in DC.

    Drudge gives Politico a head's up that he has something coming.

    Drudge breaks story, and immediately Politico hypes it to amplify that 'something big is happening'.

    Since Matt Drudge is like a small town's busiest prostitute, everybody who chases the gutter uses him but nobody wants to be seen with him on the air, Politico writers with DC cache appear on the cable news shows to pimp Drudge's ride without the downside that comes with Drudge.

    Rightwing cable news pundits and DC gasbag hosts pretend that Politico, and not Drudge, is driving this with a wink.

    Drudge rules their world, but has a beard to help with the bottom line in these bad times for Bush-Rove/Atwater Republicans.

    Your Playstation isn't Parris Island, HALO isn't military service, and SUV magnets aren't medals.
