At this point, I really shouldn’t care any more, but holy frijoles:
Jane Hamsher, the publisher of the liberal blog FireDogLake, said that many bloggers like Mr. Erickson test rhetorical limits, but ‘that’s no reason to keep him off the air.’ Ms. Hamsher said she would rather debate Mr. Erickson, whom she called an ‘honest broker,’ than an opponent reciting prescribed talking points.
You know, I could easily bury the hatchet and have a drink and a civil discussion with certain conservatives who really are honest brokers. Misguided and wrong, but honest.
Erick Erickson, on the other hand, is somewhere in the range of Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage on the Wingnuttia Scale of Hacks and Liars. One of the worst of the worst.
Something tells me that trolling for attention and traffic is a higher priority for some formerly admirable members of the tubes. Very sad.
