Erick Erickson, the prolific blogger from RedState, is a new political commentator for CNN. Below is an interview Erickson took part in on CNN. It's quite eye-opening.
I guess what bothers me here is not his extreme views as much as his childish behavior on a blog that has such massive hits. I mean, you write a blog where you call a retiring Supreme Court justice a "goat f*****g child molester" and think that only a few people are watching this?
He says that he knows he needs to grow up and carry on a more dignified discussion, but I have my doubts. The reason he is so popular and why CNN is taking him on is because of his behavior.
I agree with E.D. Kain on this one: when there could have been a number of thoughtful and smart conservatives to choose from, CNN went with Erickson.
And you wonder why CNN's ratings are in the toilet.
