The Atlanta Constitution’s Bill Torpy profiled Conservative blogger Erick Erickson in a December 11, 2009, post headlined “Georgia political blogger holds nothing back.” Writes Torpy:
Conservative blogger Erick Erickson doesn’t mince words. He compared the White House spokeswoman to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. He called a fellow Macon city council member a “cheap politician with a weak character.” And he once tweeted that a U.S. Supreme Court Justice had an unnatural attraction to farm animals.
According to Torpy, “such histrionics, combined with Erickson’s political insight and access to inside dope, have made his local blog, PeachPundit.com
, a must-read at the Georgia Capitol, and RedState.com
, the national Website he edits, a must-read for Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and other high-profile conservatives.”
