Crazy--Even For a Republican

Erick Erickson, a leading conservative blogger, on why liberal blogs are more popular than conservative blogs:

Erick Erickson, editor of the popular conservative megablog RedState, conceded that progressives currently enjoy an advantage over conservatives online — though he attributed it to an asymmetry in free time, since conservatives “have families because we don’t abort our kids, and we have jobs because we believe in capitalism.”

Wow. That's almost Jonah Goldberg level stupidity. Gee, I wonder why you are less popular. Could it be that you are an asshole? Could it be that you make patently absurd statements? Could it be that you could say the same thing to conservatives who listen to talk radio? Could it be that you spell your name wrong?
