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

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.
