CNN’s Erickson: ‘I Got a Man Crush’ on Tea Party Radical Joe Miller (Video)

September 3, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—CNN’s right-wing contributor Erick Erickson is all tingly and weak-kneed, gushing like a school girl over Alaska’s senatorial tea party candidate Joe Miller. The radical “tenther” Miller, believes Social Security, Medicare and unemployment benefits are unconstitutional and he wants to eliminate the Department of Education. And he spouts off all of this nonsense sporting a checkered flannel shirt and a neatly trimmed beard. Well, all of this conservative beefcake is just too much for the vitriolic Erickson, who recently likened the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque” to a Satanic center for “Human Sacrifice.”

Erickson admitted his man tingles on CNN’s John King USA last night, as he gushed over Miller’s likeness to conservative icon Barry Goldwater:

“You know Joe Miller– I got a man crush on the guy. He’s Ron Silver from the 80s in Blue Steel and he sounds like Barry Goldwater. Works for me. You can almost hear him say, “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” You know, he’s tapped into something. The Democrats are calling these guys extremists. They are saying they are outside the mainstream. But you know, a lot of mainstream voters right now– they think social security is going to be bankrupt in 10 years and they are never going to get on Medicare…”
