"Even Obama's New $100 Bill Looks European." Of course, the Bloomberg article to which Drudge links makes no such claims, but rather reports on the security design of the new bill, which is "aimed at thwarting counterfeiters." The other link Drudge provides goes to Juli Weiner's tongue-in-cheeck Vanity Fair blog post on the new design, in which she asks Drudge, "Is this bill a Communist-style invasion of our civil liberties? A fascist and also very European-seeming prohibition of our Constitutional right to produce and distribute counterfeit currency?" Either Drudge didn't pick up on the sarcasm or he's just revealed to us all that he does have a sense of humor.

For the record, here's what a Euro looks like:
