His Imperial Majesty has an ambivalent relationship to Drudge. Mostly positive, mind you, but occasionally we do get pissed off at him for ignoring what we, in our Imperial Wisdom, consider important. And since our Imperial Wisdom, which is a term that we just made up, finds it important then by G-d it IS important.

Whenever he does it we go “ouch!” and we’re not even the target of those one-two punches of his.

Damn. But DAMN! That’s beautiful.
