Please Explain The Drudge Report To Me

Seriously, what?Okay, help me with this. I've read the article to which it refers. I understand that it's a play on the title of Woodward's most famous book. I've looked through various online dictionaries to see if I'm overlooking something. But I can't for the life of me figure out what Matt Drudge is trying to say here with "All The President's Hen." The president is a chicken? He's a woman? I'm perfectly happy to admit that I'm missing the point, but there is something a little disturbing about the thought that I can't even understand Drudge's cheap digs anymore.

I think it's a play on him not being hawk-ish on war, that in reverse, he's a hen. Then again, Drudge is a moron.

Morgan Little (#7,565)

Shouldn't it at least be "All The President's Hens?"

Still, better than the original headline, "Obama's Got Wood(ward)."

Drudge is saving "All The President's Semen" for October.

Tim Donnelly (#6,230)

They're all chicken??

Vera Knoop (#2,167)

Something something Kenyan Muslim Salmonella?

I think it's a subtle dig on Obama's socialist message and it's similarity to Orwell's Animal Farm. See, Obama is, I dunno, Napoleon and the hens are just listening to all his propaganda or maybe he's Boxer, and, like, Hitler is Napoleon … or maybe Stalin … and Obama's just spouting all this socialist rhetoric about how Stalin maybe had a point. Of course, if that's the case, I would've amended the title to the less confusing "The Final Neighs." But that's just me.

ANYWAY: the photoshop-a-crowd cover reminds me of my Arrested Development DVD boxes. Come to think of it, I wish the pic of Obama was one where he holds his index finger on the side of his face, like Michael does on the Season One cover.

I watch way too much Arrested Development.

I think our internet-rattled ADD minds would — wait, I'm gonna go check my twitter.

HiredGoons (#603)

Maybe he misspelled 'hun'? As in Atilla? Which I still don't get.

cherrispryte (#444)

They're both foreigners who took over other countries? It's a bit of a stretch.

HiredGoons (#603)

Not as much as you'd think, unfortunately.

Smitros (#5,315)

"Hen" is sometimes short for Hennessy, and maybe Drudge thinks all Black people have a cabinet of it.

Matt Drudge wants you know he understands black culture.

deepomega (#1,720)

I think it mean's that Obama, like a hen, lives in eternal fear of foxes.

dado (#102)

Maybe chicken little was a hen, not sure it was ever specified.

You have to understand, my good man The DrudgeReport is a wit free zone. They kill clever people over there, see …

Prez is hen-pecked by bitchy advisors

KenWheaton (#401)

I thought it was the advisers hen-pecked by the prez. There was another headline saying he assigned them homework.

mgw (#89)


I can't get past the the use of ALL (plural) with HEN (singular). Does not work, no matter what "hen" means.

Maybe he is referring to a Hen Party? Like the English people over on Knifecrime Isle have?
Makes as much sense as anything else I guess…

I'll tell you who doesn't think it stinks, The New Yorker. That's right.

lawyergay (#220)

I would have gone with "The President Is A Bird With A Vagina, And I Dislike Him a Great Deal. P.S. I'm gay."

lawyergay (#220)

Or cloaca? I'm not sure birds have vaginas.

Joey Camire (#6,325)

lady bits would suffice.

David (#192)

Suggest you check the Memo issued by David and Charles Koch's team on "Global Strategy for the Reduction of Our Taxes and the Increase of Our Income." I am sure it says "always spell 'men' as 'hen.'

HiredGoons (#603)

Ohhhhhh! I get it.

BadUncle (#153)

I'm just glad Drudge isn't focusing on the President's Cock.

LotaLota (#1,703)

att's sexual fetish happens to be cracking raw eggs on his naked body while having sex. He's calling Obama a "hen", which is a source of eggs.
Conclusion: he wants to make an omelet with Obama.

Bunx05 (#1,625)

Wait, wait, wait. Stop giving Drudge so much credit. The mother fucker didn't use spell-check. That's all.

Pandemic Endemic (#3,825)

Drudge Report is still around?!?!

I mean it for realsie, too. This ain't one of those fake-incredulous, "Lindsay Lohan, who?" HuffPo comments made by a commenter who posts that in every Lindsay Lohan thread kind of comments.
