Chris Rock v. Matt Drudge

Okay, if you didn't know already, Matt Drudge is obnoxious. Granted, I visit his website occasionally too, but apparently he's calling for Chris Rock to be uninvited from the Oscars.
It begins with Drudge bashing Chris Rock as a choice to host the Oscars due to some quotes from his routines that are sure to enrage conservatives, particularly the radical right and evangelicals.

Drudge expands his reach by taking it to Hannity and Colmes Monday night, where he is granted not one, but two segments-- alone --with no guest taking the other side. Crooks and Liars has the video....

Despite Drudge's ambiguous denials of an agenda to get Rock de-invited to host the Oscars, I'm not buying it. He repeated the same lines by Rock over and over, hoping to cause a firestorm and create a groundswell of support for Rock's ouster.
Granted, this really isn't all that newsworthy, as the odds of Rock not hosting the Oscars are pretty small - but still, it's just...weird. To be honest, I had forgotten all about Chris Rock until this whole thing started.
