Drudge: “Obama Left Them Behind”

On Monday a friend emailed me about the likelihood of conservatives going all out to make Sandy look like Obama’s Katrina. “I’d watch Drudge for the cues,” he said. “He should have a picture of a stranded black person up at some point tomorrow.” Today he emails to claim victory:

He was a couple of days off, and the picture also includes some white people, but not bad! Here’s another of his predictions: “If Obama wins, you’ll soon start hearing the impeachment drumbeat building from Fox News types over Benghazi. They’ll go through the usual period of finger-pointing and disappointment, but it will quickly shift to a full-throated movement to re-focus their rage on Obama, and Benghazi will be the rallying cry. Trust me. I know these people. It’s not going to take that long.”

Hmmm. I hope he doesn’t know them quite as well as he thinks. We’ll see.
