CNN commentator and right wing hate spewer Erick Erickson finally wrote something today with which I can agree wholeheartedly:
The base is revolting...
Absolutely! When a conservative audience boos gay soldiers, cheers for letting uninsured people die, cheers Newt Gingrich's blatant race-baiting, boos Juan Williams, and shouts "string him up" when Gingrich mentions Obama in his SC victory speech, "the base is revolting" is right on the mark.
OK, I admit that wasn't exactly Erick Son of Erick's point. None of the things I cited above really bother him at all.
He's actually praising the loony Tea Party base for being hostile to Mitt Romney, and voting instead for a thrice-married Speaker of the House who resigned in disgrace after being fined $300,000 for ethics violations. Erick's ecstatic to see this level of animosity toward the only GOP candidate who stands a chance against Barack Obama.
But the base really is revolting.
