Like a journey to the center of some small, hostile planet... unspeakably horrible.
Matt Drudge is worse than a little turd he's a dangerous right-wing fanatic, I think it has to do with rebelling against his upbringing, he's never gotten over his childhood. Unfortunately many are unaware that he is misleading them.
There was a retarded guy in our Seattle neighborhood named Paul, who back in 1984 used to wear a "Madison Park Sheriff's Association" T-shirt and leave "parking tickets" (he scrawled unintelligible stuff on short order pads) on driver's windshields who parked near the Red Onion Tavern. Paul was very big and scary looking, even though completely harmless. You should have seen the reactions from people parking there who didn't know about him. Too bad You Tube didn't exist in those days... :-)
You put forth some interesting premises, definitely food for thought.
