The Erick Erickson Show
Tonight at 9:00 p.m. on AM 750 and 95.5 FM WSB in Atlanta, the real and true premiere of the Erick Erickson Show gets off the ground. I’m excited. We had a four hour run yesterday, but I considered it a beta version. We worked out most of the kinks and we’ll go live tonight. You can listen online at http://wsbradio.com and call in at | Read More »
Sensibilities and the Ground Zero Mosque
Here’s me on John King USA last night talking about this issue.
Me vs. Michael Steele
Someone has started a silly rumor that I will be challenging Michael Steele for RNC Chairman thanks, in part, to RedState’s tremendous win record so far this year in GOP primaries. Mixed into this rumor is the suggestion that I am somehow to be opposed because of my position on gun control. To clear this up and stop more reporters from calling me, let me | Read More »
For those of you who have not heard, my book is coming out in two months. Some of you have emailed to ask why my front page postings have been lighter than normal, both here and at Peach Pundit. Well, now you know — I’ve been writing, just not here. You can pre-order Red State Uprising: How to Take Back America right here via the | Read More »
Today is my Birthday
It’s true. I’m only 35. As we do every year at this time, here are my birthday requests for today: (1) Call your congressman and complain about something. I don’t care what. They just need to hear from you. The number is 202-224-3121. (2) Give money to Pamela Gorman and Robin Smith. We need these ladies in Congress. (3) Do what you can to get | Read More »
The Countdown to John King, USA
So you might have heard a little something about me being on television a bit more regularly. It starts tonight. 7:00 p.m. ET on CNN you can tune in to John King, USA and I’ll be there live from Atlanta.
Since July 11, 2004, when RedState launched, I have written 5,064 posts. That is a lot of writing. I have tried, over the years, to say thank you as the need arises. This is another one of those times. I had a pretty good idea that the moment last week’s news was announced the fan would just break given what all would hit it. Having | Read More »
Here’s My News: Erick Erickson Joins CNN’s Roster of Political Contributors
A week after Christy decided to be a stay at home mom back in December, I got a call from CNN and was asked to meet some people in Atlanta. Since that time, as you all know, I’ve been on more than a few times. Well, CNN made an offer I couldn’t refuse. I’ve joined the network. Starting next Monday, you’ll be seeing a lot | Read More »
Han Solo Was a Cross Burning Racist
Han Solo told Luke Skywalker, “Don’t get cocky.” Who knew Solo was using coded racist language to attack Luke Skywalker?!?! Surely in all the re-writes to make Star Wars even more awful, George Lucas would have stripped this out. If he was going to make Han Solo not shoot first to improve his image as a militarist, surely he’d not want him to be a | Read More »
DailyKos Short Bus Riders Want to Send Martha Coakley and Me to Jail
The not so very bright readers of Kos want to send Martha Coakley and me to jail. Why us? Well, I published the list of union organized phone banks for Coakley on Friday night. Some genius who probably thinks Joe Stalin was just misunderstood now is convinced I must go to jail. WITH A POLL!!!! I assume s/he (that covers everything including transgendered I hope) | Read More »
By popular request
When I track down the Hannity clip from yesterday and the Blitzer clip from today, I’ll add them.
Battle of the Cajuns on CNN
While my dad may be Swedish, my mom is from Louisiana. Today at 4:40 p.m. ET on CNN, you can witness the Battle of the Cajuns. Carville v. Erickson Consider this an open thread.
ZOMG! Pray?! No Way! Repent of This Nonsense You Christofascists.
Last night, 17,000 19,298 people joined Senator Jim DeMint and me on the telephone to talk about several Senate races. Talking Points Memo makes this the lead story this evening. And what is one of the key take aways? Yours truly asked activists to not just donate to candidates but . . . wait for it . . . to pray for candidates too. Scandalous. | Read More »
Scozzafava Campaign Goes After Me. Subtly.
Well, I guess I am having some sort of impact. If I wanted validation, I guess I have it from the Scozzafava campaign. Humorously, the interview is with the Los Angeles Times. See here: “Her positions on a lot of issues are reflective* of the electorate here,” said Matt Burns, a Scozzafava spokesman. “If the idea is that every Republican that runs for office needs | Read More »
I Have Arrived!!!!!
Friends, I have arrived. If ever you doubted that I am somebody, we now have definitive proof brought to us by the Southern Poverty Law Center. They list Sean Hannity, Chuck Norris, Glenn Beck, Rick Perry, and me as examples of prominent voices on the right stirring up the next generation of Timothy McVeigh’s. Apparently, daring to be critical of government and pointing out the | Read More »
I’ll be on Hannity at 9:30 p.m. ET tonight
If you get bored tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET, you can tune in to see me on the Great American Panel on Hannity. Consider this an open thread.
The Atlanta Tea Party Just Got Bigger
April 15th was going to see a big tea party in front of Georgia’ Gold Dome, but it just got bigger. Tonight on Fox News, Sean Hannity intends to announce that he’ll be live from Atlanta that evening covering the Atlanta Tea Party in front of Georgia’s State Capitol Building. He’s asked me to be there with him. I’m looking forward to it. If you’re | Read More »
David Brody Thinks I’m Shrill. I Think Brody Is Letting Perceptions About Objectivity Get in the Way of Facts
David Brody gets good access to Barack Obama. Obama, after all, is making superficial outreach efforts to the evangelical community (probably not for much longer). As a consequence of this access, Brody has every reason to play it straight, even to the point of being unwilling to connect the dots himself regarding Obama’s support of infanticide, dots that are abundantly obvious. By not doing so, | Read More »
