In the aftermath of Drudges shameful headline story yesterday, Rush decided to take a dig at Drudge using his new headline about $6 gas prices:

drudge is a flaming queen....
“Santorum praised the Catholic Bishop Samuel Aquila for pledging to deny communion to politicians who support abortion rights and said the matter went beyond politics and was a symptom of Satan’s reach in U.S. society.”
What’s wrong with THAT???
If you are a Christian and don’t recognize the existance of Satan and his effect on the world, you are in the wrong religion.
Its refreshing to hear a politican who is not ashamed of his Judaeo-Christian background and who doesn’t pander to Maniac Muslims.
I am getting the impression that Drudge has severely damaged his brand by going in the tank for Milt so blatantly. His bread and butter customers are Conservatives who can see through this BS. Now you have Rush and other Right Wing people mocking him. I don’t think he is going to have another record year in ‘12.
Rush can’t hit Drudge too hard since he wouldn’t have a show if the Drudge Report went away.. that’s almost entirely his source of daily material and usually in the same order
I’m already starting to develop the habit of bypassing Drudge, just like I did the Daily Dish (Andrew Sullivan) over 5 years ago, and more recently Romney cheerleader Hugh Hewitt.
“Drudge has this plastered up. The Democrats have found it. It’s all over the place. Think Progress and whatever leftist think tanks have dug this up, and it’s part of the predictable attempt to impugn Santorum as an absolute religious nut and wacko.”
By playing the excerpts in question, and in giving his commentary, any of you Rick supporters think Rush is defending/helping Rick here????
I don’t— just like he hasn’t defended/helped Newt.
Note that Rush lays the blame specifically— “The Democrats have found it. It’s all over the place. Think Progress and whatever leftist think tanks have dug this up.”
Yeh, well I think Romney and the GOP-E dug this up- and in that I believe Rush supports Romney- I’m not surprised that Rush is harping on “satan” today, while not criticizing Alan Simpson, the GOP-E and Romney as the one’s who are pushing the smear.
It’s all about Truth in Advertising.
We have a First Amendment in this country where every man and woman is free to believe or not believe what they wish.
If you do not agree with the teachings of the Catholic Church, that’s cool. Just don’t try and represent yourself as a Catholic. Or your organization as being Catholic.
I still like Drudge Report. I click on it at least twice a day.
When push comes to shove, these people eventually out themselves as not the Conservative pundits they claimed they were. They are actually lock step with the establishment Rove types or in Sullivan’s case, a straight up liar.
I believe in the First Amendment and I believe people have a right to believe or not believe what they want personally.
But I KNOW that America is a nation based on Judaeo-Christian values. The kind of society the Founding Fathers established requires that its citizens - most of them - share those values. If they don’t - it won’t work.
All the basic human “rights” we enjoy had to come from somewhere. The French and British will tell you those rights come from the State and as such can be removed by the State. In many oher governments, its not an issue. Citizens HAVE no roghts there. Here in America, the Founding Fathers believed everyone has those rights as a birthight from GOD.
And THAT was the main difference between our revolution and so many others.
And so, I applaude Santorum’s pride in expressing his Judaeo-Christian Values as they are the values which made America Great.
And Secular Humanistic Atheism represents the “values” which are destroying it.
People don't like the truth but many churches have become nothing but liberal propaganda outlets.
RC Sproul said recently that it may be time to stop protesting abortion clinics and start protesting churches that support abortion.
Clearly, Santorum is wrong, Satan, the deceiver that he is, has no hand in this: http://www.catholic.org/national/national_story.php?id=32962
Bravo! Well stated!
I can’t got to DrudgeReport any more.
I never cared about Matt Drudge’s personal life one way or the other. But I began to notice a pattern. There would be several negative headlines about Newt or Rick and nothing about Romney. Then, while Newt was making good showings in debates, Drudge began hammering away at Newt. It didn’t make sense to me. It went on for days at a time. Then I learned the word on the street was that Romney’s man Matt Rhoades and Drudge were butt-buddies. And there you have it. That’s Drudge’s angle: help his man’s man. Never post openly good articles about Romney but always post damaging articles about Newt and Rick.
Whatever, Drudge. I can see you now.
Santorum speaks truth!
IMHO such a place isn't a church - it's just another satanic outpost that God will judge quite harshly.
Matt Rhoades’ “fiance” (I don’t know whether she is a beard for him or not) recently received a plum political patronage appointment from Chris Christie.
The RINO fix is in for Christie as Romney’s VP if he gets the nomination.
Lord help us.
This is very foolish indeed, because Santorum was forgiving liberals and not making a condemning statement on the American people, but only stating the truth that we are under the influence of evil ideas.
The emotional retort was to condemn the guy who was trying to have us forgiven in the eyes of God.
Romney probably told Drudge he would have him as his VP
Yep. I always would check Drudge until he literally set out to destroy Newt. Same way with Beck. I noticed a certain relentless viciousness against Newt with him. After that he would have the travelling brother love show. I was too disgusted with him to listen. I have developed a wariness of both now and Fox News really was not subtle as well. What a shame. Now it is Santorum who is getting hit with the twisted nonsense on Drudge.
RC Sproul is a genius. I’m not Catholic, but that man is one apologist on fire for Christ! Bob
Oh, if you’ve never seen his interview with Ben Stein about Stein’s movie “Expelled”, it’s fascinating.
I will try to explain Santorum’s remarks, but to those who choose not to understand, it won’t help.
Santorum was trying to avoid pointing a finger at the left, at the Democrats for the destruction of the culture. Instead he chose to speak in the language of the church and let those for whom the shoe fit, so to speak, wear it.
He gets more material from FreeRepublic. It is likely you have read many of his posts, and you often hear him make statements that our fellow freepers have written. I am proud that we are a major source of his “show prep”.
We have a lot more news than Drudge and you can tell items that are striking a chord by the amount of response threads are getting or the number of times similar stories are being posted. The attack on Rev. Franklin Graham is a prime example.
Don’t forget Michael Medved.
I HEARD that b*%#& interviewed on FOX the other day and she turned my stomach.
People like HER and denominations like the Episcopal Church are WHY Christianity is on the ropes.
EVEN IF YOU PUT ASIDE THE ENTIRE ABORTION ISSUE, the Bible is REPLETE with condemnations of and judgements against homosexuals.
When ostensibly “Christian” churches select creatures like this one to be their spokespersons, let alone even ORDAIN them, what do we expect???
But then when you look at the Episcopalian Church Historically, what CAN youi expect from a church founded by a serial polygamist??
I recognized Rush’s dig at Drudge immediately.
Rush is VERY loyal and nice to his people, and even to his arch enemies.
If Matt has put even Rush in the position of making this tiny mention, then Matt has done something sort of serious.
Umm....when Matt started down this path I was thinking it was some master strategy, or something.
Now I don’t think that. I do agree that his coming out for Mitt is pretty clear, and I do think it is tarnishing his reputation.
I no longer go to Drudge’s website. He has become progressively more left leaning and partisan.
Formerly, he was the guy I would go to in order to read the conservative side to a debate or contested piece of legislation.
I no longer trust the man. Anyone know if he suffered a severe head injury????
“drudge is a flaming queen....”
Some people put that out there, but who knows, as the homosexuals have made a tactic out of accusing anyone over 30 that’s unmarried of being in the closet.
Drudge is supposedly Jewish, but I get the feeling that they guy is not very religious, and maybe even embarrassed by religion. If that’s indeed the case, it would explain a lot about his all-out assault on Rick Santorum. There’s a relatively small, but powerful subsection of the right that’s as antagonistic to faith as the Democrats are. Karl Rove is one of them, and maybe Drudge is too.
I no longer hit drudge. He used to be a daily hit, but since he has “bedded” with mittens I have wiped my hands of him.
Perhaps drudge can become his 2nd wife.
That's disgusting. Glad I don't watch it anymore.
FR should build a competing front page to Drudge and simply use the articles posted here every day to feed headlines to it. Give Rush a conservative alternative to the RINO media.
The Catholic church would almost certainly preach in favor of amnesty or at least favorable policies toward illegal aliens. After all, where in the bible does it say thou shalt cast out the illegal alien? That’s a very different issue from gay marriage and abortion which are obviously against Christian principles.
Not to mention when Mitt made his big gaffe about not caring about the poor, I think it only merited a small headline several rows down on Drudge, and within the headline itself he wrote in a “but” with Romney’s excuse.
I haven’t gone to Drudge’s site more than a dozen times or so in the dozen or so years since he first removed the “FreeRepublic.com” link. I found this site via Drudge’s link to the “WhiteWater Report” back in early ‘97, IIRC.
Well, at least Drudge was good for something.....he led you to FreeRepublic.
I can’t recall how I was introduced initially to FreeRepublic, but once on the site, I realized very quickly that members held the same ideals and conservative views that I espouse.
no he doesn’t.. if you look at the Drudge Report 30 minutes before Rush comes on air you will see almost all the subjects come righhrt off of Drudge.. even Rush admits it.. that’s why Rush hasn’t slammed Drudge when he should have.. they are pals and everyone who is honest knows why
