SENATE WARNS EMPLOYEES TO AVOID THE DRUDGE REPORT (Drudge)
drudgereport.com ^ | 3/9/2010 | Matt Drudge

Posted on 03/09/2010 6:42:27 AM PST by Evil Slayer

Just as the healthcare drama in the capitol reaches a grand finale, congressional officials are warning employees to avoid the DRUDGE REPORT!

The Senate's Committee on Environment and Public Works issued an urgent email late Monday claiming the DRUDGE REPORT is 'responsible for the many viruses popping up throughout the Senate.'

The committee ordered hill staff: 'Try to avoid' the DRUDGE REPORT 'for now'.

On Monday DRUDGE served over 29 million pages with NOT ONE email complaint received about 'pop ups', or the site serving 'viruses'.

The site was seen 149,967 times since March 1st from users at senate.gov and 244,347 times at house.gov. [10,825 visits from the White House, eop.gov]

The Systems Administrator may want to continue taking her antibiotic until the prescription runs out.

Reminds me of one group of snotty noses on the playground warning about a certain select few to avoid for fear of cooties. Yeah, that’s the mentality of DC right now.

Filthy Harry Reid was probably torqued off at that continued headline story about ‘Only 36,000 lost their jobs today - Harry Reid’, and Drudge NEVER posts a picture of Nazi Pelosi that is not highly UNcomplimentary, as she so rightly deserves.

Hope Matt Drudge is watching his back, it would not be out of the realm of possibility for those 0bamunist thugs to take him out to meet Jimmy Hoffa sometime.

Yes, viruses.

Viruses such as 'The Idea Of Freedom', 'The Concept Of Accountabilty', 'Sanity', and 'Actual News'.

You know, those sort of viruses.

Trying....really hard....not to think of......AAARGH!

When I was in high school, one Friday afternoon the head cheerleader announced on the PA that all students were commanded to come to an assembly the last hour of the day. The library and classrooms were unusually full the last hour of the day with students who opted instead to spend their time studying. I didn’t know that head cheerleader was now working for the senate....

If this warning isn’t based upon evidence, then Drudge should sue.

Obama admin is worst ever in history of presidency! Drudge only pulls up things from other news sources. So he ads his own comments...

I read Drudge 3-4 times a day. First thing I pull up on my p.c. every morning.

Barbara Boxer chairs that committee. She had to have authorized this. Drudge must have been really, really bugging her lately. Our future: tinpot members of Congress telling us what we can and can’t read when it comes to POLITICAL COVERAGE.

Since Drudge does nothing more than present news from other sources, are the Dems recommending avoiding all “unpleasant” news from their staffs? This will really sharpen their grip on reality.

Ahh, it happened to me yesterday. Clicked on Drudge and immediately a window from an unknown source popped up saying a virus was detected and to "click here" blah blah blah.

No, I didn't click on anything but got out, did a virus scan, rebooted and then did a Spybot scan. A couple minor things came up on Spybot but overall a clean bill of health.

I think I dodged a bullet by NOT clicking on that window to "fix" the problem.

I envision a a committee of sub-basement located, loser, safety patrol sissyboys and super smart no sense of humor girls charged with keeping those with 1/2 of a working brain cell away from conservative talk radio or web sites.

Nerd 1:
“What about Drudge?”

Nerd 2:
“They don’t know anything about pop-up blockers. We can tell them a pop-up is a virus. Yeah, that works. Send it to the Senate and the word will spread from there.”

Nerd 1:
“This job is too easy. It is almost criminal to get paid for this. BTW, we need to spread some more about Massa. People are looking into Hikel’s (American ex-pat in Canada) associations. A few preliminary dots are being connected.”

Goebbels used to write long treatises explaining WHY it was forbidden to listen to foreign radio broadcasts, even if you were a loyal Party member.

The more things change, the more they remain the same...

Rahm doesn’t have anything to do with how the Senate is run. I still think that, given her chairmanship, Drudge offended Queen Barbara somehow and her loyal committee staff flunkies did this.
