Erick Erickson Contemplates Primary Challenge To Saxby Chambliss

Not a week after Saxby Chambliss steps out of the Grover Norquist zone, Erick Erickson steps in, ever so humbly, to declare he's considering a primary challenge to Mr. Chambliss. Oh, not just considering. Prayerfully considering.

Evidently there are some billionaires out there who think Mr. "GoatF*ck" Erick Erickson would be a wonderful Senator simply because he wouldn't raise taxes. Or something.

But we won't forget how he denigrated women with this tweet during the Democratic National Convention, or how he tried to commit identity fraud to "entrap" the Obama campaign into accepting overseas campaign contributions.

Or how he defended deadbeat dad Joe Walsh's attacks on Tammy Duckworth, or pushed the false "death panel" meme, or how he was willing to see the country's economy implode by encouraging conservatives to hold the line on the debt ceiling back in 2011.

No, we won't forget how he bullied Stephanie Cutter, or that he thinks Rush Limbaugh is conservative Jesus.

These things will not go unnoticed. Just as Mitt Romney has scored his 47 percent irony, so too will Erick Erickson find himself on the opposite side of his ridiculous 53 percent meme.

But please, Mr. Erickson. Pray over it. Pray harder. We'll wait. Someone pop popcorn, please.
