Just wish Drudge had the balls to admit that he was in the bag for Mittens.

LOl Drduge can do what he wants, it is his site. I am glad because that means FR can do what they want. We need to remember that.

Santorum throughly decked Romney in LA. I just wished that Newt and Rick could work things out and unify into a single ticket. I would prefer Newt as lead, but reality says the ticket needs to read Santorum/Gingrich 2012. They could possible save us from the horrendous idea of Romney heading the GOP ticket. That is a “stay at home” moment for me. I have voted in every POTUS race since 1976, and always for the GOP nominee. However, I WILL NOT vote for Romney. Of course I won’t vote for the Obamanation of Desolation either.

Oh, in regards to Drudge. He is a news link clearing house. He doesn’t even qualify as a blogger.

Spoiler alert: Shameless self promotion.

I had DR as my home page for a decade, including a brief flirtation with foxnews.

Their over-the-top promotion of Mitt turned me off. So it was get mad or get even. My decision:

I used to click on Drudge constantly and had it as my home page on all of my computers for probably 15 years.

I deleted him as my homepage and have not visited the site even once since he starting attacking Newt.

Matt and Mitt can go on a cruise together.

Newt is definitely a drag on the Santorum votes however...

Newt implied recently that his goal is a brokered convention...

If that is to happen, his staying in the race may b better than dropping out since he is probably pulling some votes from Romney...

plus, I'm not so sure Santorum would do so well in a 2-man race because Romney would have a clearer target.

Remember, Drudge is a muckraker, nothing more or less. He will support his friends and cover for them. He will belittle and attempt to destroy any other. Like Winchell decades ago.
However, we may need him if things should go right. Once you realize what he is, the anger should melt away and be replaced by a calm and a sense of purpose.
I’m a Santorum supporter myself, but I tell others like me that I don’t see Gingrich or Paul going anywhere right now, not because of some conspiracy but because that’s what

Looks like a nice site. I’ll be watching. Why such a funny name for it though? I would try to find a Tea Party-esque newspaper-like title for it, like Tea Party Times, Tea Party Telegraph (my favorite I think), Tea Party Inquirer, Tea Party Chronicle, Tea Party Patriot-Times, Tea Party Gazette, Tea Party Post, Tea Party Tribune, Tea Party Journal, Tea Party Eagle, Tea Party Bugle, Tea Party Planet, Tea Party Plain-Speaker, Tea Party Advocate, Tea Party Sentinel, Tea Party Herald. Or an alternative to Tea Party would be to relate it to Paul Revere. It is time to abandon Matt Fudge but we need a clear alternative to send people to that accomplished the same thing. You would probably need to modify the visual style and logo somewhat to avoid intellectual property legal problems if the site became big.

Here is an index of newspaper titles for ideas:

Democratic Underground can do what they want too. The issue isn’t free speech rights. The issue is whether we think his site sucks or not.

First, thanks for the support and suggestions.

A RegretCard is like a business card that just says "I am so sorry". It is a way to mock liberals who think intentions are more important than results, that they can do anything they want as long as they apologize afterward.

I hope Newt stays in as well. Last week, there has been a drumbeat in the media that Santorum should get out.

If Santorum does start to falter I am afraid he would give in to the pressure to drop out and give us Romney vs. Ron Paul. I know that Newt would hang in there until the end and therefore giving us a conservative alternative.

Greetings Katarina:

Drudge can do what he wants, it is his site.

Agreed. Matt Drudge obviously favors Myth; I don't. That's quite fine by me.

If someone doesn't like Matt's moustrap, I say: build a better one. Matt was a FReeper when he launched Drudge Report. Clean. Simple. Fast. Other good conservative content biased sites, but the silly gimmicks, slow loading graphics, scrolling, and especially the pop-ups are annoying; so Drudge keeps my business.

And until somebody does it better, Drudge Report remains one of the best conservative leaning news gathering operations in the world.

Cheers.
OLA

Don't settle for an inferior mousetrap when a better one is at hand.

Don't settle for a 'conservative leaning news gathering operation' when you can patronize a solid conservative one.

I don't post on FR just to promote my site, but this thread lies exactly in my area of expertise, so I feel justified in doing so. Thanks for your consideration.

Greetings 867V309:

Nice start. Except somehow it gives the appearance you’ve plagerized Matt’s work.

And that “Travone All Grown Up,” cute. But have you verified it as an authentic photo of Travone? The “real” journalist axiom: Even if someone says your Mother loves you, ask the source.

Cheers,

To be honest, I wanted to reflect his site because I'm Po'd that he 'betrayed' us (Conservatives). Now I know he's not Conservative. Anything I can do to expose the 'Drive-by Media' as Rush calls it, I will do.

BTW, the value of his site is in the CONTENT, not the format. My site is a loose PARODY of his, but my content is 100% original. I no longer look at the content of his site because I don't won't it to contaminate mine.

I researched Trayvon and am convinced he is not what the media want to project. Can I prove those are his photos? HA! They are far more convincing than BO's birth certificate, IMHO. If you want Smoking Gun Mug Shots, sorry, I can't help.

And, have you read this?: http://www.myfoxorlando.com/dpp/news/seminole_news/022712-man-shot-and-killed-in-neighborhood-altercation

Thanks for replying to me, I welcome your suggestions, comments and news tips!
