Will Erick Erickson Grow Up?

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.

Hey, I'm really interested in your blog, I've started a bipartisan blog (though I'm a moderate democrat) and I really respect your viewpoints on the modern conservative movement. I'd love it if you'd check out my blog at

Keep up the good work man!
