Drudge editor ridicules Rachel Maddow report on corrupt Democrats

Sunday, Drudge Report editor, Joseph Curl wrote, "Even MSNBC’s raving liberal Rachel Maddow was stunned" by the latest report of three indictments against high-profile Democrats hitting the news one after another. Curl quoted Maddow, "

“There are now three Democratic state senators with federal criminal indictments against them just this session resulting already in eight felony convictions. And yes, the Republican Party is essentially defunct in most of California and probably beyond reviving; but, if anything can bring them back, it’s probably days like this.”

The Drudge editor recalled how Democrats were able to dance and sing "culture of corruption," all the way to a victory in midterm elections back in 2006 when it was disgraced Republicans in report after report. Now, Curl warned Democrats, whether cyclical or not, as the old saying goes, "the shoe is on the other foot."

The Democratic party effectively unified local and national campaigns around the slogan or meme "culture of corruption." Curl may have remembered how Howard Dean sounded off in 2006, saying, "Republicans have made their culture of corruption the norm."

In Curl's opinion, it's the nature of the political beast that elected officials who rise to power as their party rises in power all too often sink in corruption — that's the real "norm." The Drudge Report editor acknowledged corruption occurs in both parties. Curl explained, "Sadly, this culture of corruption is cyclical, first one party, then the other — whoever has been in control so long it becomes corrupt."

"Now, it’s the Democrats’ turn," to face the wrath of disgusted, angry voters pointed out Curl. Noting that it was particularly bad timing for President Obama, Curl added that watching " their elected officials being frog-marched in handcuffs," had a chilling effect on the confidence of voters.

Curl referenced the following scandals involving Democrats as politicians are heading into the midterm elections:

In spite of ongoing coverage of these scandals on the Drudge Report, Curl notes that conservatives are mostly mum, "keeping their powder dry." However, Republicans may be waiting to add "corruption" to their bag of Democrat sins. After all, Matt Drudge, the founder of Drudge Report, who pops up in strange company, a report here, name dropping there, recently warned that Republicans were making a mistake if they thought they could win on Obamacare alone.

Curl did give a nod to those who suspect these reports are being broken in advance of the midterm elections, by design. It's a design many think will save Democrats seeking reelection and media Democrat supporters, such as Rachel Maddow, from having to deal with a devastating report of corruption popping up on the Drudge Report on the eve of the elections.
