    For years I've gotten a kick out of the headlines Matt Drudge pulls out of his ass that don't relate to the story he links to. This is a thread where you can post his make believe headlines. Here is today's.

    No different really to what we see on here every day. Sometimes I wonder if people even read what they link to.... this is particularly true of the HuffPuff brigade.

    Oh I always click on the story when I see obviously fake headlines like that on Drudge. I always want to see what caused him to fantasize.

    Drudge headline sounds like Boehner wants to do pay cuts.

    View attachment 11936

    The real headline in the linked story.......not so much.

    Boehner under fire: First cut should be lawmakers' salaries - TheHill.com

    Soon-to-be Speaker John Boehner (Ohio) is being pressed by taxpayer groups to slash the salaries of House lawmakers.

    Cutting member pay would show voters the new GOP majority in the House is going to lead by example in their efforts to rein in spending and start with their own wallets, say officials with three prominent taxpayer advocacy groups in Washington, D.C...........

    .......Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner, said that no decision has been made to slash members' salaries, but pointed to the promises the GOP made in its "Pledge to America" in September.

    "The Pledge to America calls for cutting Congress' budget, but no specific decisions have been made about how that will be done at this time," said Steel.

    Obama: $45B deals show China's rise can help US

    By MATTHEW PENNINGTON, Associated Press Matthew Pennington, Associated Press – Thu Jan 20, 6:42 am ET

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is looking to assure Americans that they should not fear China's economic rise, using Chinese President Hu Jintao's high-profile state visit to announce job-creating business deals worth billions of dollars to U.S. companies.

    On another big American concern, human rights, Hu conceded that "a lot still needs to be done" to improve China's record.

    The business deals and Hu's human rights comments were among the highlights of a ceremony-packed day seen as key to building trust between the world's top two powers.......
