Drudge rules our world, responded Slate journalist David Weigel to Smiths post on Twitter, later adding sarcastically, SOMETHING SHOCKING HAS BEEN POSTED ON THE INTERNET.
Our right is nuttier than your right (US to 193 countries), wrote the Al-Monitors Laura Rozen.
The Washington Posts Greg Sargent begged his followers not to talk about or visit the Drudge Report.
Dear everyone: Talking about how Drudges visuals are ruse to get attention = giving Drudge attention, he wrote.
Also, dont link to Drudge link to twitpic, the Washington Posts James Downie added.
Why didnt @Drudge just go all the way and put Obamas photo between Adolph and Josef? asked Michael Rosten, a social media editor for the New York Times.
The new gold standard in Godwins Law violations, wrote Business Insiders Joseph Weisenthal in reaction to the picture.
Seriously Drudge? asked Newsweeks Michael Moynihan who added a link to one of his own columns, Someone needs to read my @tabletmag column.
Yep, Obama is just like Hitler and Stalin by trying to clean up databases on gun purchases and violence, Sam Stein from the Huffington Post tweeted sarcastically.
Has the Drudge Report ever been Drudgier than it is right now? tweeted The Washington City Papers Mike Madden.
Drudge thinks that there hasnt been enough Drudge talk lately, surmised Mike Memoli a reporter in the Tribune/LA Times DC Bureau.
Really? Drudge is shocking people? asked Roll Calls David Drucker sarcastically. Cmon.
Whoa. Drudge sending a message today. Wow, tweeted Breitbart.coms Matthew Boyle.
So Drudge is right now comparing President Obama to Hitler and Stalin on his homepage, reported John Avlon, a Senior Columnist for Newsweek & The Daily Beast.
Current splash on Drudge Report should satisfy the entirety of their mouthbreather audience, tweeted the Huffington Posts Drew Guarini.

After years of similar accusations against Bush that they ignored, suddenly they are shocked — shocked, I tell you!
Consequences of having a foreigner in the White House.
Well, there is an old saw about cooking a frog.
Put it in boiling water and it immediatly knows it is in trouble (e.g. conservatives) and jumps out vs putting it in a pot of cool water and slowly turning up the heat (liberals).
By the time liberals- and the frog - finds it’s being cooked, it will be too late.
Drudge did good, when he ran those two pics.
it’s shocking to msm journalists becuase someone actually published the truth for a change.
The image doesn’t work.
One puppet master with two puppets makes sense. Two puppet masters with one puppet does not.
Too bad he forgot Mao.
I am currently reading “The Roosevelt Myth” by John T. Flynn, (originally published in 19480 and I am horrified by the parallels between their political careers, their economic illiteracy, their self-importance, and their overall incompetence/naivete’.
When Archie Bunker sang about how “We could use a man like Hoiboit Hoover again”, you have NO idea how correct he was!
The press has been in the dimrats’ pockets FAR longer than you realize.
Oh PLEASE, America, WAKE UP!
Those snots are so out of touch.
Nothing shocking at all.
Drudge was right on!
And how exactly can the GOP combat that? I have no idea.
So, when the Hollywood crowd made a Movie about assassinating President Bush, a sitting President at the time, all these “Journalists” rose up in outrage?
I must have missed that.
Well, at least he hasn’t gotten us into a big war yet. I will be so glad when my son gets home from Afghanistan.
Bush loved America. The Obama communist monster dictator hates America and wants America destroyed
there is a stranger in our house.
Good for Drudge. Finally someone says the truth
