Ugh: Drudge Teases Some Bombshell Tape, Won't Say Who or What's On It

I need this anxiety?

No, I do not need this anxiety. Neither, I'm sure, do you.

***UPDATE FROM DRUDGE – CAMPAIGN DRAMA: VIDEO MADE 6 YEARS AGO SURFACES ON EVE OF FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE… DEVELOPING TONIGHT… ***

This from Drudge:

Curious tape dropping tonight. NOT from MOTHERJONES. Will cause controversy,ignite accusations of racism — in both directions!

— MATT DRUDGE (@DRUDGE) October 2, 2012

Internal debate at news network about airing tape tonight, on eve of debate… MORE

— MATT DRUDGE (@DRUDGE) October 2, 2012

I honestly don't need this.

Possibly just to steel myself against bad news, here's my speculation: The tape hurts Romney, in an unfair way. The "network" that has it wants cover, to release it, and not be called out as a partisans pushing an unfair October Surprise.

So, they let Drudge know about it. Knowing he will build interest.

Now, interest built up, the public will clamor for the tape, and thus the media network can't be called out for partisan motive. After all, they're just doing what the public demands, right?
