Speaking of cornflakes ( another post from years ago I just read ),
Jindal took a page out of Trumps own book on how to get some free press.
Just start the day by taking a leak in Trump's cornflakes.
They say all free press is good,
They also say don't tug on Superman's cape.
We'll see how this works out soon enough I guess....



Jindal has no chance. But I must admit his attacks on Trump were at least entertaining...

I'm of the opinion that hypocrites who peddle anti-gay rhetoric and then turn out to be a closeted gay themselves should be sent adrift on an ice floe.



What "anti-gay" rhetoric has Drudge pushed?

What rhetoric of any kind has he pushed for that matter?

This story is on drudge today...doesn't look like "anti-gay rhetoric" or "agenda" to me...

"The singer pointed to studies showing that emerging economies which protect LGBT rights have a higher gross domestic product per capita. He says "so being tolerant and inclusive is not only the morally right thing to do, for the new Ukraine, it's the smart thing to do.""

So I am assuming that some of the links are to things that contain positions that are not favorable to the gay agenda, so that makes it anti-gay.

Most people would just assume the guy has made a good business linking news stories to a web page. Maybe with a bit of a slant, but what news deliverer today has no slant at all????

The guy has an amazing ability to put up news you would never look for yourself but can't wait to see. His headline writing ability while yellow is the best in news. I imagine he has 100 or so sites he checks and the rest are links people send. I've send a few links, a few of the stories showed up. I am not arrogant enough to think it was my tip, he probably gets multiple emails every second and filters any links sent. When he gets so many he probably checks them out.

I heard Drudge say in an interview that he sometimes
personally updates the page 100 times a day, so it's
constant relevant with the newest stories. It's a huge
amount of work, but he makes 10's of millions a year
from advertisers, it hot site to sell your product on.
2mil unique hits a day? There are 25 MILLION total
hits a day, the ads get seen over and over. So far
this year it's 8.6 billion hits.

10s of millions a year? That's a lot of money.

I'm willing to bet the FBI's recent raid on rentboy.com hit Drudge's interests hard...

Some posters seem unable to resist smearing said aggregator without any basis. Responses are a natural occurrence.

The good thing is that is just as easy to block the thread as it is to complain about it!!

It'll come back to the election at some point...most long conversations go in a bunch of different directions.
