Bad Humor Watch: Drudge Report

Bad journalistic practices and rightward-slanted headlines notwithstanding, the Drudge Report has it's place, and you can't argue that Matt Drudge was a pioneer in internet news reporting. But they need to stay the hell away from humor, because the Drudgettes and Drudge readers clearly are, if you'll excuse my languange, fucking idiots.

I give you exhibit A, where readers were asked to "caption the photo" of Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame. It is not funny. I DARE you to laugh.

Reader-submitted "caption the photo" contests are designed by idiots for idiots.

Matt Drudge, stay away from humor and I'll stay away from misleading rightist news reporting.
