The Drudge Report is not at all thrilled with the prospect of Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., becoming the next House speaker, and the conservative news aggregator said as much on its front page Tuesday evening.
"King Paul: Pledge your allegiance," read one boldfaced headline.
Others read, "Dem favorite. Obama's new partner."
However, like many engaged in the right-wing entertainment business, including radio hosts Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and Fox News' Sean Hannity, the Drudge Report's strong disapproval for the Wisconsin Republican appears to be relatively newfound.
In 2012, after former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney picked Ryan as his presidential running mate, the Drudge Report hailed the news with gleeful enthusiasm.
