Erick Erickson ‘Grew Up Wanting to be a Bernard Shaw or a Robert Novak’

Less surprising than the departure of Mary Matalin and James Carville from CNN is the news that Erick Erickson is also moving on. On RedState.com the conservative pundit writes about what he’ll miss:

When I told my 7 year old I had decided to leave, she laid on the sofa for an hour crying that she’d never see Anderson Cooper again. She’s never actually met Anderson Cooper. But I have and I’ll miss him and his team and I’ll miss Wolf and his team, and all the other terrific people I’ve worked with these last three years. I deeply regret never working up the courage to pull on Wolf’s beard.

For all those liberals who lost money thinking Keith Olbermann would outlast me at Current TV, well, sorry.
