Dreadful, even for Drudge

The top headline on the site currently reads:

THE HUNDRED DAYS: SUPPORTERS INSIST HE IS GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER

It links, naturally, to an achingly lazy Politico piece which pretends to know what WH aides want reporters to write about Obama's first 100 days. But here's the thing: nowhere in the article does it even come close to suggesting that supporters think Obama's the "greatest president ever."

Drudge just made that up. Fantasized it. Manufactured it. Describe it however you want. But there's zero in that Politico piece that even remotely hints at the headline Drudge dreamt up; a headline designed to portray Democrats as loony Obama worshipers.

FYI: Sadly, I don't think this is a joke. From the Politico piece [emphasis added]:

Full disclosure: POLITICO plunged in with our furrowed brow appraisal of Obama's first 100 days, which will be published on Friday in a special glossy 100 Days magazine.
