FEET TO THE FIRE.

Drudge is in it for Romney.

Drudge. Romney. Hannity. Limbaugh. Clear Channel. Goldman Saches.

Same thing.
Just say NO.

What are you going to do? The Nazi generals make excuses after the war: OK, you can have a job in OUR government.

No. You made your bed, now lie in it.
Drudge deserves the same fate as the Establishment GOP.
Bon voyage!

Wow, how cool!

I follow https://twitter.com/#!/search/ian56789 pretty smart fellow.

Not a BROKERED convention...

an OPEN convention. The media apparently doesn't know the difference.

I don't play, I commission the league.

It will only be an Open

It will only be an Open Convention once everybody is able to vote their conscience, but after that if nobody has enough delegates to win the nomination outright it becomes a Brokered Convention. The reason people say that it will become a Brokered Convention instead of an Open Convention varies, but there will be an Brokered Convention by the end -because in all reality neither Romney nor Paul will have the delegates outright to win, so they will have to make deals with Santorum and Gingrich delegates to win the nomination; unless one of them tries to do a nomination from the floor and wins -but I don't see that happening, but it could by suspending the RULES. So, one group of supporters will eventually have to cave or I'm not sure what would happen if it ends in a stalemate.

He tagged intrade. Which

He tagged intrade. Which means his intentions could be much more devious than it appears. He' may be trying to make either himself, or some buddies some money by buying the shares early, spreading the word and then selling hard against anyone else who jumps on board. That's my theory. I don't trust drudge anymore. besides if he really wanted to share the news he'd put it on his website.

Edit: I just read the comments. It makes sense that it wasn't actually drudge doin it lol. You can see I dislike intrade ;).

Did you hear that loud

Did you hear that loud popping sound?

It was Matt Drudge's head popping out of his-ass. Finally...

"doubled", meaning up to 5%

Right now, the chances are listed at 4.8% on Intrade. You can buy shares for a little above that.

never mind

It's not fake, it's just not run by drudge

I started the Twitter account because at the time Drudge didn't have an official account. Now I use it to tweet out both drudge articles and articles that I find interesting.

I appreciate the link nonetheless.

Sorry!

I thought it was Drudge by the post. I've followed you on twitter for a while. Anyone can follow me if they want.

@RalphHornsby

I do follow you as well

another good follow!

Easy to make the mistake

If you enjoy the service, keep subscribed. I appreciate doing it, and I'm working to make it tweet drudge even faster. A lot of people think I'm Drudge, which is an honest mistake. We are, however either the first or second oldest drudge twitter. I'm pretty sure that Drudge's "official" Twitter is actually run by someone else as well. I don't think Drudge does anything other than the site and his personal Twitter.

That is not a real Drudge profile

These are his real twitter accounts

@DRUDGE

now if matt could just...

Now if Matt could just add some links about the delegate victories to the top of his page with a siren, Dr. Paul might get a bit more momentum.
