Ever since CNN hired the occasionally foul-mouthed
Red State blogger Erick
Erickson, the left's been livid
. He's a
staunch conservative whose inhibitions don't stop him from, say, "spitting"
on Ted Kennedy's grave. This week, Jon
Stewart waded into the debate, not to pick on Erickson but to attack
CNN (whose ratings, by the way
, are tanking).
CNN could hire a guy whose entire resume is incendiary partisan
rhetoric and then act like that's the part of him they don't like. CNN's
like the guy at the strip club who says 'I'm going to hang out but I'm
not getting a lap dance—I'm here for the buffet.'"
