Erick Erickson Is in ‘Prayerful Consideration’ About Far Right Challenge to Chambliss

Loony wingnut blogger wants to enforce ideological purity
Politics • Views: 23,391

Redstate blogger Erick Erickson is reportedly thinking about primarying Saxby Chambliss, because Chambliss is no longer pure enough for the right wing: Erickson Considering Challenge to Chambliss.

“For a week now, I’ve been getting calls to see if I would challenge Saxby Chambliss, once he really got into the whole ‘raising taxes issue,’” Erickson said in the opening segment of his radio show Tuesday. “Well, the pace quickened. I got a lot of people pledging a lot of money in the last couple of days if I did something like this. And I’ve been very adamant, I wasn’t going to do it, but after a few conversations today with a few heavy hitters in Washington, D.C. and some here in Georgia, I should at least consider it.”

Erickson, a CNN political contributor and editor-in-chief of conservative haunt RedState, added he was “very flattered” and was in “prayerful consideration” about waging a possible challenge to the two-term Chambliss.

“Prayerful consideration” always plays well in Wingnut World, but maybe he should also ask God how He feels about Erickson calling Supreme Court Justice David Souter a “goat-fucking child molester,” and saying the Nobel Prize Committee had “an affirmative action quota” when they honored President Obama.
