I do not think Barack Obama is a closet sympathizer of muslim Jihadists bent on our destruction, but God help me I suddenly understand how some have arrived at that conclusion.Why does he "understand" this now? Because Obama hasn’t unleashed the dogs of war against ISIS, Putin, Libya, North Korea or any other John McCain (AKA Grumpy Old Man and WORST judge of character EVER) sanctioned targets. Yet. War is apparently a panacea for these cheeto-headed warmongers.
So yeah, Erickson’s a bomb throwing, tiny dicked piece of freeze dried Tea Bagger excrement who, naturally in this Orwellian age, calls himself a Christian.
He fancies himself a reporter, an author, one of the established cognoscenti.
Upon being disengaged from CNN he had this to say:
I had to learn an art form too often missing these days in partisan talk — the art of conversation, particularly with those who might disagree with me. I had to learn to be friends with people who I disagreed with.to which TBogg added, amongst other things:
and he learned that it is not considered ‘well mannered’ to call a retiring Supreme Court a “goat-fucking child molester“ Or being such an obvious racist. Or a misogynist.Yup, he’s a Fox “News” Asshole-Who-Skews-Reality-to-Hell-and-Back-and-Otherwise-Makes-Shit-Up — that’s the job title. Really. You can check their HR department manual. Honest!
So, really, Erick’s adventures at CNN are very similar to Dorothy’s adventures in Oz where lessons were learned … except in this case nobody gets a brain, or a heart, or courage. But Erick does get a new paycheck at Fox, so it’s not a total loss.
Incredibly, he found a woman with either low enough self esteem or an avaricious enough temperament (maybe both!) to marry his homely, troglodytian self AND bear him a child.
Additionally he just does not give a fig about global warming. He doesn’t necessarily deny that it’s happening — he just doesn’t give a good goddamn.
The Green Miles presciently points out, in his post Erick Erickson: Screw Our Children, I Want Cheap Coal Now, that Mister Heart-Attack-Waiting-to-Happen Pundit Boy’s "Let the seas rise. Let the wind blow" and “We’re all going to die” grenades are of a piece with the rest of the GOP’s profound disregard for the planet and everyone on it who isn’t them.
Erickson may just be one blogger, but here he gets to the core motivations of today's Congressional Republican leadership — America isn't worth investing in.So, apparently Erickson's cool with leaving a disastrous wreckage of a planet to his child. Or maybe he just figures the kid'll be sufficiently insulated from it all because...because...um...Free Market Unicorns that's why!
Energy? Just give me what's cheapest today, if we need alternatives tomorrow, someone else can spend the money on it. Education? If my family needs that, I can pay to send my children to private school , but I won't volunteer a dime in additional taxes to improve our community. The environment? I can buy home air filters and bottled water — if you can't, too bad for you & yours.
"We are all going to die," Erickson cynically concludes. "Just not today." And by then, it'll be up to our children and grandchildren to build massive hurricane barriers outside every East Coast city to keep out the rising seas and monster storms as the bill comes due for all that cheap coal, oil and fracked gas
Short sighted, terminally selfish, greedheaded, pee wee brained, barbarian fuckwads!
