No, the Drudge Report can't stay stuck in unattractive photos of The Enemy, e.g. Hillary Clinton (what a blast from the past) or sensationalistic headlines (LibertyWritersNews stole its thunder).
So, it's no surprise that the Drudge Report headlines with a serious analysis of the new power structure in Washington D.C. - and in New York City. At the top is Jared Kushner. Here is the lengthily article in Forbes which details Kushner's political genius in getting his father-in-law Donald Trump elected.
For example, Kushner operated the campaign as a startup. And, indeed, it was a startup with few designated resources. And no tradition-bound leadership or conventional models. Therefore, like Facebook and Google, it wasn't tethered to any past.
Meanwhile Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin were leveraging a decades-old playbook. The moves were predictable. Therefore, they couldn't shake off the usual kinds of attacks the way the Trump campaign could. That is, the old-line Clinton campaign lacked a startup's ability to move fast and in a fresh direction.
For example, Clinton was stuck with everything from the dredging up of Wild Bill's past to the FBI's second investigation. Trump could veer away from P__yGate by changing the conversation. And that he did.
But like the power brokers from the past, Kushner knows he has to be brutal. His purge of Chris Christie sent an early message of the need to "get" what Trumpism is all about.
