The obligatory “Drudge teasing political sex scandal story” post

posted at 10:00 pm on October 31, 2012 by Allahpundit

People have been e-mailing for the past hour wondering if it’s The One. C’mon — President Spock, caught in a sex scandal? He’s years away from his next pon farr.

It’s not him:

SEX SCANDAL TO HIT CAMPAIGN…

STORY SAID TO INVOLVE POWERFUL SENATOR, SOURCES TELL DRUDGE. DAILY CALLER PLANS LATE NIGHT RELEASE…

That second line appeared on Drudge’s site only within the past half hour or so. Before it did, Ace posted that he’d also heard tonight about a sex scandal involving a senator — a Democratic senator — that was set to pop soon. Follow the link for details. Spitzer’s meltdown would be hard to top, but if the allegations are true, this would do it. No word on whether it’s someone who’s up for reelection but it’s hard to resist jumping to that conclusion given the timing.

That’s all there is right now. While we wait, via Breitbart, here’s a visit from the Ghost of Sex Scandals Past. Evidently the GOP wants people to know that rape and incest “are not problems” anymore. Thank goodness he informed me of this before election day.

Only scandal is that he apparently shorted them on their fee.

Dud.

Now if he would just show the same restraint at spending OUR money, he might land Tea-Party support!

Zzzzzzzz….lot of nothing about nothing.
Is Drudge now taking his blockbuster surprise cues from Donald Trump?

Bottom line….no October surprise….again.
This every 4 years “October Surprise” election myth must die.

Another stain on a blue dress state.

A sex scandal for a Democrat carries the same weight as a parking ticket. Morality, like everything else for these dirtbags is relative.

Number one rule of hooking, get the money first. Even I know that.

I think number two is, don’t fall in love with a john. That’s what did Diamond Lil’ in…

Someone with Drudge’s acumen knows this story isn’t blockbuster. My thought is that maybe he was hinting at what a lot of us already know about O’s sexuality. When it mentioned sex scandal and then a senator, I honestly thought Drudge might be going there w/ O and Lott.
He didn’t but maybe some others have connected the fits with Drudge’s continued innuendo re: Obama.

Obama doesn’t like to read Hot Air. He can’t get past the “BLOWBACK” without getting excited.
