Really, if there’s one guy who embodies everything whiny, stupid, self-righteous, and willfully-oblivious about the right more than Erickson, I don’t know who it is. He’s not even smart enough to be a Limbaugh or even as charming as Hannity is occasionally capable of being (in between long bouts of logorrheal stupidity). Erickson’s just this ginger blotch on the internet, never an original or insightful thought in his head, just a desperate need to belong to something since all the hipsters won’t talk to him. Well, jackass, I don’t get a lot of hipster-love either, but I didn’t dedicate my life to getting revenge on them with stupid stunts like this 53% non sequiter bullshit.
Really, Erickson, you ignorant idiot, I’d love to see you take the bait and show up here, because “Erickson gets ass handed to him on obscure blog” would be a great headline. Unfortunately, Erickson, like any weak-minded idiot on the right, won’t let himself get caught up in anything resembling a rational debate with anybody who isn’t already a mouthbreathing rightwinger unless he can spout some soundbites and scramble.
It just amazes me that after 30 years of continual pillage by the wealthy, where even the top twenty percent of earners have barely seen gains compared to the top 1%, that when Americans finally get pissed enough to speak up about it he can only think to throw a tantrum that has nothing to do with it, EXCEPT HE HAS A PERCENT TOO!!!
Bring it on, Erickson, you sad sack.
UPDATE: Terrific tumblr here lampooning the maroons calling themselves 53%-ers. Best one here. So many of them are ranting about how poor they are and how they’ve needed government assistance or employment, yet don’t realize that they aren’t in that 53% that pays income taxes. Btw, who passed a bunch of tax cuts ten years ago excusing so many more people from income taxes?
