Erick Erickson Called You a Shameless Whore (Especially You MSNBC Ladies!)

Well, this isn’t very nice. Erick Erickson went on a somewhat pornographic screed against the news media today in a post to

You guys in the press who are reading this right now can be such shameless whores. I generally try to hold to the standard these days that if I wouldn’t be outraged by George Chimpy McBushitler Halliburton and Darth Cheney doing something, I shouldn’t be outraged by President Obama. And if I’d be outraged by Bush, I should be outraged by Obama.

But you journalists have such erections for everything Barack Obama does, you can’t even summon outrage to report fairly on the latest b.s. from the administration over Obamacare. Is it any wonder so many people have stopped trusting you?

Erickson also accuses the lady journalists of wanting to bone the prez:

But now, you’d rather have cocktails (pun absolutely intended for a good portion of you “journalists”) with the President, jealously size up the competition in the First Lady, and wish you too could be a mistress when you see France’s President and whoever the gal of the week is for him…

…with President Obama, half of MSNBC still wants to have his baby and the women over there just want to be his mistress. Hell, France’s President has one.

Why, you ask, would Mr. Erickson say such things? Well because of Obamacare, obvs.

Under the latest round of Obamacare delays for companies of 50 to 99 employees, companies who embrace the delay can layoff, restructure, and hire part time workers, but only if they swear to the IRS they are not doing so because of Obamacare. This comes on the heels of a much touted CBO report that finds only anecdotal evidence of a shift to part-time work now, but expects a shift in labor among small businesses in 2015.

If George W. Bush had done that, Dan Rather would be marching on the White House with a pitch fork.

We won’t speculate about what journos would or would not have done in the wildly implausible scenario in which President Bush delays parts of the implementation of his signature healthcare law, Bushcare. But we certainly don’t know why one must bring erections and mistresses into any of it. Whatever happened to Lamestream journos being just plain old liberals who, you know, agree with the President’s ideas? Is it really necessary to imagine the national press corps wanting to screw the guy and have his baby?

That said, if any of you out there in DC Journo-Land have particularly vivid or salacious Obama fantasies, please send them to, or deposit them anonymously in our tip box. Maybe we’ll start an x-rated Tumblr or something….
