Leading the Drudge Report this morning:
Drudge originally linked to this photo. A single photo. While pegging, “SHOCK PHOTOS: Thin and Wasting Away…”
Now, Drudge is linking to a story it created in The Daily Mail, which is just great. The following is from the story, presented without comment:

Really? Well, it has been a key issue for Drudge. In 2009, Drudge splashed a story that, again, was headlined “Barack ‘N Bones.” It linked to a photo that called attention to Obama’s “dramatic weight loss” and questioned whether he was chain smoking.
In January 2011, according to a Drudge Report Archives site, it linked to a story in the National Enquirer, which is always a great source. It was entitled, “Why Obama is Scary Skinny,” and it said he was battling parasites.
Oh yes, everyone. It’s general election season!
Here’s the photo in question:
