Drudge's war

Want to know whether conservatives are fretting about the effect the Goldman Sachs story could have on the financial reform debate? Check out Drudge.
The link goes not to a news story, but to, which is benefiting nicely from the traffic surge. What does the company's 2008 support for Obama have to do with financial reform? Nothing, but it sure does distract people from the story of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) meeting with 25 Wall Street executives 12 days ago. Hey, it worked against Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) -- although Kirk was collecting money for his 2010 campaign, which is rather more relevant than the donations of two years ago.
