Knowing what we do about Matt Drudge, none of us should be surprised that this Anderson Cooper item is receiving top placement on the Drudge Report. In Matty's world, elections and Euroriots don't hold a candle to a handsome gay icon talking about his special sauce.

What does amaze us: Cooper's ejaculation-metaphor piece was first posted to the CNN website in August (and was originally featured in the August 2003 issue of Details, to boot). That means Drudge waited calmly — tenderly, lovingly, so as to increase one's pleasure — for quite some time before going apeshit. Who knew he had such patience, such discipline? We totally had Drudge pegged as a two-pump chump.
