So Erick Erickson, you can support Rush Limbaugh all you like, but as a CNN contributor, 3 Chics takes issue with your association with this hate-filled, racist, Rush Limbaugh and your support of his actions. Your ideology and misinformed ignorance about the contraceptive issue is just as insulting to women.

CNN’s Erickson: ” Of Course Rush Was Being Insulting … But He Was Using Insult And Sarcasm To Highlight The Absurdity Of Sandra Fluke And The Left’s Position.”In a March 2 RedState post, CNN contributor Erick Erickson responded to Carly Fiorina, vice chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, after she criticized Limbaugh’s comments as “insulting.” Erickson wrote:
Erickson: Well of course Rush Limbaugh was being insulting. It is not something I would do, but he was using insult and sarcasm to highlight the absurdity of Sandra Fluke and the left’s position, which in a nut shell is they think you, me, and every other American should pay for them to have sex. And while I understand people being offended, I am offended by many of these same people thinking I should be subsidizing what has, for years, been considered a consensual act. [RedState, 3/2/12, emphasis added]
Really, these folks have no shame. Notice how they yell and scream the “LIBRULS ARE TRYNA SHUT DOWN OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS!” And the topper, dig up whatever they can find on Sandra Fluke to discredit her with the already angry, rabid, hateful GOP base.
Jeffrey Lord, the author of this CRY-ME-A-FUCKING-RIVER piece was a former Reagan staffer is arming the troops to fight back and get behind the drugster, Limbaugh. Trust these GOP-PERs are adept at sticking together, when one of their own power is threatened.
Remember Roland Martin got called into the principals office for his homophobic remarks.
CNN has been vying for FOX News status for a few years now. I’ve tuned them out, ever since they took on Erick Erickson from Red State.
