Erickson in for Hannity in Atlanta
From 4pm to 8pm ET tonight, I’ll be on WSB Radio out of Atlanta, including filling in for Hannity’s spot tonight while he’s out. There’s a lot of polling to talk about, Herman Cain to defend against Lawrence O’Donnell, etc. Oh, and Moe insists I talk about Snooki and the Situation. And you can participate. It is a call in show, after all. You can | Read More »
See, We Told You So
Back in 1994, Rush Limbaugh wrote See I Told You So. From page 88 of the book: [T]he cure for: a) the budget deficit = more taxes; b) unemployment = more taxes; c) recession = more taxes; d) environmental problems = more taxes; e) illiteracy = more taxes; f) L.A. riots = more taxes. It doesn’t matter what the nature of the problem is. This | Read More »
Photoshop Contest: One Does Not Simply Mock Into Mordor
As you may be aware, Senator John McCain, reading from a Wall Street Journal editorial on the Senate floor Wednesday, invoked Tolkien, quoting the passage here: The idea seems to be if the House GOP refuses to raise the debt ceiling, a default crisis or gradual government shutdown will ensue and the public will turn en masse against Barack Obama. The Republican House that failed | Read More »
Tim Pawlenty repeats call to hang tough on debt ceiling.
It’s hardly a surprise – Pawlenty has been arguing since January that automatically raising the debt ceiling without exhausting other options (read: spending cuts) first is a bad idea – but the video below shows that the former Governor of Minnesota continues to want Republican legislators to not back down on this issue: As GOP 12 noted, this statement by Pawlenty… Now is the time. | Read More »
Tech at Night: Hacker threats and arrests, we must defeat Patent Reform and the Texas Amazon Tax, Sprint’s spending exposed
The cyberterrorist groups Anonymous and its apparent splinter group Lulzsec are getting bold. The latter gang of criminals is attempting to blackmail the United States Government after attacking government networks, which is just insane and I hope will lead to mass arrests. While the former is attacking the Spanish government after arrests made there, and suffering further damage from mass arrests in Turkey. I hope | Read More »

It’s A Judgment Issue, But I’m Not Personally Offended
There is a story out this morning that Sarah Palin’s top aide Rebecca Mansour sent out a series of nasty direct messages on Twitter about Sarah Palin’s daughter, Mitt Romney supporters, others, and me. The Daily Caller has the details. Regarding me, Jonathan Strong reported: RedState.com founder and CNN contributor Erick Erickson is “a total douchebag,” wrote Palin speechwriter and domestic policy adviser Rebecca Mansour | Read More »
Unfortunately, I’ve just been informed that Donald Trump needs to reschedule our one on one interview. Those of you who have registered already will get a note when the rescheduled interview takes place. Sorry about that. And my plane ticket isn’t refundable. Oh well.
Why Yes, I Am Interviewing Donald Trump
He’s a blunt new voice that’s hitting our conservative establishment with the force of a wrecking ball. The guy fascinates all of us, but let’s face it: he also raises a lot of questions. I’ll ask Donald Trump those questions, 1-on-1, live, for a solid hour. Is this all just posturing? Is he running — or not? Let’s get answers. Who’s the real guy behind | Read More »
Erickson & Trump. One on One.
Yes, it is true. On Tuesday, I will be going one on one with Donald Trump in his office in New York. He has agreed to sit down and have an unfiltered conversation with no topic off limits. Thus I will ask him those questions many of you have wanted to ask him and flesh out why he thinks he is a conservative, why he | Read More »
Lawrence O’Donnell Is Biblically Ignorant and Barack Obama Comes Out In Favor of HIGHER Gas Prices #EERS

We’ll discuss all this and more tonight on the Erick Erickson Show on WSB starting at 7:05 p.m. ET. You can listen | Read More »

Greg Sargent Encourages Unions To Commit Violence Then Demands We Look At His Record on Palin and Arizona
UPDATE: Sargent just took to Twitter and called my quoting him directly “comical lies.” That seems to be a rather damning indictment of Greg Sargent about his own writing. ——————— Greg Sargent is whining at the Washington Post, not that I pointed out his calls for union violence in Wisconsin, but that at the very end, after all was said and done, I besmirched his | Read More »
Thor’s Hammer + Releasing the Kraken
I have been moving this week and the site has descended into chaos in the comments. There are multiple petitions by many of you, the diarists, readers, and commenters of this site, to disband the recommended diaries list because it is being gamed by a number of diarists at the expense of new and, frankly, quality non-conspiratorial material. Being Scandinavian, let me introduce you to | Read More »
