Troublemaking Fat Kid Making Trouble Again

Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler of the RedState Trike Force Eric Erickson ups the ante in the never-ending contest among the wingnuts to see who can be the most hysterical over nothing at all:

At what point do the people tell the politicians to go to hell? At what point do they get off the couch, march down to their state legislator’s house, pull him outside, and beat him to a bloody pulp for being an idiot?

At some point soon, it will happen. It’ll be over an innocuous issue. But the rage is building. [...]


Were I in Washington State, I’d be cleaning my gun right about now waiting to protect my property from the coming riots or the government apparatchiks coming to enforce nonsensical legislation.

Of course Erick does not live in Washington. He lives about as far away from that state as is possible while staying within the continental United States. Erick lives in Macon, Georgia. He will of course remain puddled on his couch, disavowing any responsibility for any gun-related tragedies that happen in Washington, even as he proudly points to himself as being named by the London Telegraph "the sixty-ninth most influential conservative in the United States."

Erick also claims to be a deacon at his church. Remember that smart guy last year, who got so much heat for mentioning the bitter people who cling to their God and guns? Yeah.

Oh, by the way? The reason the fat kid thinks encouraging others to beat politicians and shoot people is a good idea?

A proposed new law that will require dishwasher detergent sold in the state of Washington to be phosphate-free.

Guys like this scare me - and make me despair of the present and future.
