Erick son of Erick son of Erick son of Erick

So one of the outlets coughed up recently, or since I was on vacay, or it is possible that this one escaped my knowledge completely, which near as I can tell is yet another conservative rag in a universe sadly lacking them, called The Resergent has an article by the Son of Erick titled:

Trump Invites a Cesspool of Fake News to Cover the White House. And I’m Not Talking About MSNBC.

Yes, that is what the title sitting next to an opening in the side of a rock face leading to who knows what said to pique my curiosity to find the candle holder, candle, and matchbook, Rope, Pick and shovel and begin my intrepid adventure,,,

Once again, I must admit that one of the better parts of misplacing certain parts of your memory can be the taking of momentary solace. That for a few short months, or in my case a bit longer, you were unaware of a certain existence or a few because they had been involuntarily scrubbed from memory. Such was the case with the Son of Erick.

Now one of the nice bits is when you recognize and are able to place immediately an object or thing into its proper context or next to its companion in the sock drawer…So after the initial holy crap, what is this new RightWing Rag I have never  heard of, and that is a cute assed title by half of half, I wonder who might be the wizard behind the curtain, and lo an behold, there he is…

<i>I don’t mean to bore with these asides, only to attempt to share a bit of the childlike wonder on the one hand and the are you effing kidding me? get offf my lawn on the other that I get to deal with on a nearly hourly basis as I creep along catching up</i>

Ok, so now a quickipedia search reveals that our target has quite the CV for a former blogger. And the chins of a family too far removed from its lutefiskian homeland and fed on enough corn to bleed corn

Erick Erickson (born June 3, 1975) is a politically conservative American blogger who hosts the radio show Atlanta’s Evening News with Erick Erickson, broadcast on 750 WSB (AM). He previously served as the editor-in-chief and the CEO of the conservative political blog RedState and was a political contributor for CNN.

Erick Erickson – Wikipedia

Erick-Woods Erickson was born in Jackson in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates when he was five, and returned to Jackson when he was fifteen.[2][3] Erickson attended the American School of Dubai, previously known as the Jumeirah American School.[4] His father worked for Conoco Oil[5] as an oil company production foreman.[6]Erickson received a bachelor’s degree from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, and a law degree from Mercer’s Walter F. George School of Law and is an inactive member in good standing of the State Bar of Georgia.[7]

Now I’ll admit that while I might have chafed a bit under that impoverished hand, I would likely not have taken a bite out of it, and one wonders what kind of freak an impoverished white kid running around in the back alleys of Dubai can get into…

I never thought I’d say this, but good for conservatives like Erickson and David Frum for having the courage to call out the Orange Crackpot and the GOP bullshit factory.

Strangely enough, they are the last remaining shreds of decency on the shit-encrusted, ignoramus, hate filled conservative movement.

 
Hey, conservatives!
 

You know, if Obama or Hillary had wasted this much taxpayer money, the RW howler monkeys would be screeching and flinging poo…

But since it’s the Orange Crackpot, *** crickets ****

He was one of the architects of this current right-wing morass of mendacity, he just doesn’t have the character to admit this.

Is it petty not to want to give these people credit, given how much they’ve done to create this mess in the first place?

 
 

Quite true, but there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

Not. At. Fucking. All….Petty that is….

I was just having a rundown of the last few administrations going back to Nixon and about the similarities and that a pattern has developed….We fix the mistakes that cratered the economy, got us into war, or a combination of the two plus the abject and shameless looting of the treasury, restore the economy back to a semblance of stability, and the looting hordes come back with a vengeance to loot and destroy the edifice again, while blaming the Negro’s, Messicans, or AyRabistanis….

I just saw a comercial on CNN what looked like a Dubya retrospective…..How the Vandals and Racists took over the party of Lincoln….(I know that I have probably written a somewhat lengthy post on the subject on this very blog)…Continues to amaze me…
Evening Folks…

A side question: Is there anybody more Cluseless than Wolf Blitzer on the TV news, serious hour?!?!?

I am not taking Chris Matthews for an answer, because he is in another territory altogether. One needs to bring in a z axis to properly plot his particular brand of well paid Moron…

 
 

“morass of mendacity”

That has got to be part of a new band name or the title of a punk rock song….

/scribbles note to self

And filing impeachment papers, while bumpers across the USA would appear as if out of the blue crying for impeachment…

unfortunately we are going to have to resurrect IOKIYAR or IOKIYAD (its ok if you are Donald)

The republican party can never fail, it can only be failed…

Sorry I missed this earlier…As much as I hate to say it, and I hate to say this particularly about Erick, son of Erick, but he and Frum are two of the sharper tools in what is a, generally speaking, rock and bone-head laden, GOP toolbox. They are already preparing the ground for escape vectors and have pillows strategically situated to soften their fall, so that they will be ready to regain a clean handed position at the helm, when Donald Crashes the ship of state into an iceberg, after which there will be nary a republican around that will admit to have supported the man, and most will pretend he did not exist…

We have seen this one play out before, with Dubya…The party can do no wrong, it can only be wronged, or IOKIYAR…

I just discovered a bag of catnip…I wonder if it would be ok to introduce my 3 month old kitten to some…

A googling I will go…

 
 

… & to think, it only took his mundane GOP Primary dissent resulting in weeks on end of MAGA-Dementors terrorizing his family for him to start calling out the same wingnut mass psychosis that he himself was such a vital incubator of for so many years!

Same with Glenn Beck. I read a New Yorker article about him and he has two bodyguards with him wherever he goes.

I remember when conservatives used to say that “a conservative is a liberal who got mugged”… that needs to be updated!

“A non-hate-filled conservative is a hate-filled conservative who suddenly got hated by other hate-filled conservatives.”

 
 

Speaking of conservatives with issues… pull up a chair, children, and I will tell you a charming little story from Canada.

It’s about a Conservative MP candidate who turns out to have, shall we say, a rather peculiar skeleton in his closet…

Morass of Mendacity could open for Corrosion of Conformity.
