OK, I know I'm not going out on a limb here. We all know this guy is an "attention whore".
And, just to prevent my remarks from being misconstrued; yes, I literally mean that Matt Drudge has sex with complete strangers in exchange for attention!
There. I said it. I don't want to get into one of those ridiculous "Hillary pimping out Chelsea" controversies, so I'll admit it right up front.
Plus, he can kiss my ass.
Never the less, he really proved what a dick he is by amplifying some vague rumors that Prince what's-his-face was deployed in Afghanistan. Now, I don't really give a shit about the British royals. In fact, I think they serve beautifully as a warning against breeding within too small a population to support genetic diversity. But even that retarded-looking ginger kid deserved the opportunity to serve his country in anonymity.
But Matt Drudge took it upon himself to break the "story" and thus endanger the prince and his fellow soldiers.
How can he possibly justify doing that? This isn't a Monica Lewinsky story. It has nothing to do with politics, especially American politics. This is simply an example of Drudge's relentless quest for publicity and notoriety.
The entire British media, a motley collection of ruffians and rapscallions, managed to keep their attention-whoring traps shut about this. An Australian paper ran a little mention of it, but it wasn't picked up. One or two other sources possibly mentioned it in passing. Nothing ever came from these whispers.
But leave it to Ol' Sourpuss to ruin things for everyone!
If he had revealed the name and location of a famous American in Afghanistan, can you imagine the uproar we'd hear from everyone in the media? But for some reason, this Inspector Gadget resembling idiot is getting a pass.
Well, not from ME he doesn't! What he did was inexcusable and undoubtedly criminal. There's no justifiable reason to endanger someone simply for the fleeting publicity of an international story.
Let me make something clear, Matt Drudge; this isn't a fucking game, you moron! This is people's LIVES!
