Erick Erickson ‘Prayerfully Considering’ Primary Run Against Sen. Saxby Chambliss

Erick Erickson is looking at a move from editing RedState to representing a red state. The leading conservative blogger told his radio audience that he is “prayerfully considering” a primary challenge to Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) in 2014.

“What I do know is that Saxby Chambliss has spent twenty years in Washington and in that time has been complicit in growing Washington,” Erickson told local station WMAZ on Tuesday, adding that “significant and prominent conservative groups” had asked him to run. “It’s time for him to come home. Whether it is me or someone else, I hope someone rises to the occasion to challenge him.”

He discussed his grievances with Chambliss in more detail on RedState the same day and offered a preview of his own governing style on Twitter: “If I were a senator I’d object to every , until Obamacare was repealed,” he wrote. “Shut down the Senate lest they shut down America.”

Activists on the right sense blood in the water around Chambliss, especially after he denounced Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge this week, saying “I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge.”

2. In other words ...

Lesson learned from the most recent election:

"We just were not radically right enough!"

I would have loved to go back in time to when many of these rightwingers were in pre-school. I'd gather the class together and hand them a "peg and hole" game and video tape what happened.

I'll bet, while the other kids are happily enjoying their graham crackers and milk, the young rightwingers would frantically still be trying to fit the square peg into the round whole.

5. Actually

The little GOPigs would try gnawing the corners off the square blocks, then accuse the round holes of bias.

6. Yes! Please do!

Chambliss is a cancer. This redstate turd would provide comedy gold.
