Erick Erickson Asks Herman Cain If He Tried Turning It On and Off

by Wonkette Jr.

'Do you talk on radio? I do.'Now that the puddle of human goo that used to be Rick Perry has finally been covered over with cedar shavings and left to dry overnight, perhaps we should refocus on polishing the rest of the turds who for some reason are still interested in getting Iowans to hate them slightly less than the other ghouls scrumming to become GOP CEO. (Because the rusty Democrat machine hates bizness, only the GOP gets to have a CEO. Enjoy those General Assemblies, hippies!) Erick Erickson, current jefe of #1 internet stratagem database/thinktank RedState, has some ideas for one particularly handsy GOP candidate which he shared in a open letter like some kind of peeved-off Democrat senator from a Nor’easter state.

Actual child Erick Erickson writes to his pretend pen pal:

Herman, you said you’d surround yourself with the best people and you’ve surrounded yourself with Class A failures. The problems you are facing are problems of campaign staffing. You’ve failed to live up to your own standard of hiring the best people.

That’s fine, Erick. Let’s temporarily just Ignore the Fact that Herman Cain knows close to nothing about close to everything. Now, while we are pretending his campaign suffers merely from personnel mismanagement, let’s remember that usually the “best people” don’t like you manhandling them or their colleagues, sexually speaking. So naturally they are going to have a hard time working for Herman Munster, who can’t even hold his hand up to his chin around a lady without doing it sexy. Any other ideas?

Herman, you must reboot for victory.

Yes! Also, Herman, you must unplug your microwave and then push the reset button on your router, for freedom. Herman, I’m going to need to put you on hold while you climb up to the roof and tie a good luck blinky to your antenna, for liberty. Herman, please go ahead and create a new guest user called “Ronald Reagan” and try logging in as that, for the whisper of a chance at winning. The password is je11yb33nz.

Just what is this Herman Cain anime character to Erick Erickson, anyway?

I owe you a good bit of my present career in radio.

Oh, boy. The American people can look past a lot, probably including boundless claims of sexual harassment because what is that even, isn’t it all just in the eye of the beholder, who can say, WOMEN DO IT TOO, etc. But helping to launch one-third of Erick Erickson’s “careers” is really unforgivable. Therefore, Herman Cain, you are sentenced to win this nomination. A somber congratulations to you.  [RedState via TPM]

 

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Herring_Burnit November 10, 2011 at 7:34 pm

Oh, god, Dok, you are TOO fucking cruel!

Reminds me of life working for one of the so-called geniuses of the hi-tech industry, who had us all slaving night and day for WEEKS to get a beta lined up for him to demo to the press and investors. We were all ordered to be present on a Saturday morning for the demo. He didn't know how to start up the demo.

We didn't laugh (out loud, anyway) till after everyone left.

It's amazing how much "magic" can be created with a black box and one flashing LED. I have heard of products that were nothing more than nice cases and knobs and flashing LED's being demo'ed at trade shows to the oohs and ahhs of the rubes dropping by for brochures and bags. No software, no real hardware, no real product yet, but lotsa flashy LED's to convince you there was a product in there…

Like Limbaugh or Beck, he is so Right, he's wrong!

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 10, 2011 at 6:19 pm

So, Erick, son of Erick, believes that Herman Cain is just a robot that likes him the women folk. Actually, that would explain a lot. And Rick Perry must be a faulty Chinese knock off that likes men?

By son of Erick's standards, this is brilliant.

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 10, 2011 at 6:20 pm

I keep waiting for a Jonah Goldberg article on Herman Cain, using pizza as a metaphor, but I would suppose the drool must keep shorting out his computer.

MissTaken November 10, 2011 at 6:36 pm

I assume that he is unable to write that Cain article since the smell of pizza is K-Lo's viagra and she then forces him to make stinky monkey love with her.

So Erik is saying smoker guy is a turd. Very astute Erik. Maybe you should work for Herman and bring the staff IQ up to Forrest Gump territory.

Herring_Burnit November 10, 2011 at 7:41 pm

I think you nailed it. Erick's just hoping Herman will give him a job so he can cash in on some of those sweet millions flowing through the Pizzaman's hands.

HistoriCat November 10, 2011 at 8:20 pm

Poor Erick is already "working" three "jobs" … he doesn't have time to Cain's homey!

Stupid Ewick. According to the MBA handbook, when an MBA sez that it actually means: "I'm surrounding myself with the best asskissers and toadies money can buy." For the most part, being a Class A failure is a bonus.

SayItWithWookies November 10, 2011 at 9:00 pm

Indeed — I believe it was professor Lawrence J. Peter of Peter Principle fame (work expands to fill the time available) who came up with the rule that administrators want to multiply subordinates, not rivals. Therefore the truly self-interested administrator will never surround himself with people who can do a better job than he can. In Herman Cain's case, that doesn't leave him much to choose from.

Son of Erick may be realizing the truth that many, many 'successful CEOs' are simply grand bulllshitters who bluff their way through different companies, making millions in stock deals and then moving on before they really screw-up the company they just fucked over.

Also works for crafty politicians such as Dick Cheney.

Those really great companies have really great people in the trenches doing the day-to-day work, allowing the CEO to tour the country claiming to achieve success through individualism and hard work.

Erick the Red obviously has multiple personality disorder. His little sheet of paper whines about his multi-million dollar "jobs", his house he can't sell, and his "outrageous" insurance costs, then it says "Suck it up you whiners". Normally sucking it up doesn't include writing it down and posting it to the internet, redtard.

Lascauxcaveman November 10, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Eweck has forgotten that Cain is used to hiring people for minimum wage + a small share of the tips jar.

ttommyunger November 11, 2011 at 6:56 am

I think he is interested in the “tip” of something else Hermie likes to offer. Not saying Eweck has teh ghey, but I think he would hold one between his teeth until the swelling went down, you know, just fer grins.

tessiee November 10, 2011 at 9:12 pm

"want you to know I would be available as soon as you want me; and Herman, you won't have to push my head down to your lap."

Herman Cain is perhaps not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but I think not even he is so lacking in basic self-preservation instinct as to push the t-man's head down to his lap.

Why does Eric son of Eric holding up what looks like a timestamp for 4chan's /b/ board? Tits or GTFO Eric!

Beware of what you wish for. I'll bet that tubby putz is rocking about a B cup.

crybabyboehner November 10, 2011 at 7:07 pm

That "radio" is gonna be big, I hear.

anniegetyerfun November 10, 2011 at 7:08 pm

"But I don't blame Wall Street."

No? But it's cool when the Teatards blame the government for EVERY FUCKING THING THAT EVER HAPPENED, right? And by "government", I mean, "the black President".

Guppy November 10, 2011 at 7:09 pm

First off, I think he's just talking about a Godfather's Pizza sponsorship deal on his programs.

But more importantly, Ewick has a house he can no longer flip? My heart weeps!

user-of-owls November 10, 2011 at 7:16 pm

All your base instincts are belong to poor staffing.

imissopus November 10, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Poor Ewick sounds depressed. I hope his wife keeps her shotgun on a shelf he can't reach.

emmelemm November 10, 2011 at 7:24 pm

He has a wife?

flamingpdog November 10, 2011 at 7:36 pm

He has a life?

weejee November 10, 2011 at 7:44 pm

Appears that Ewick has done the shotgun thingie a few times in the past, but what he's shooting at is awfully small.

glamourdammerung November 10, 2011 at 7:18 pm

So we have gone from "sexual harassment does not exist/matter" to "we need to find a way to get better staff on Cain's campaign to try to get everyone to ignore the sexual harassment". I guess that is the first time E.W.E. was involved in something that was kind of like progress.

flamingpdog November 10, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Most bloated Teabaggers ride a scooter, but Erick Erickson walks everywhere with a Cain.

neiltheblaze November 10, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Erik Erikson is a Class A failure – so, you know – he's an expert.

DemmeFatale November 10, 2011 at 7:24 pm

No snark here. Sorry.

What's with all the minimizing of sex crimes?
A question about Cain and sexual harassment is booed?
The Paterno thing is all about Joe, not the victims of Sandusky who were RAPED!?
WTF?!

Chet Kincaid November 10, 2011 at 7:30 pm

With regard to JoePa, it seems like most people get it, except for a bunch of dumb-ass college kids.

4TheTurnstiles November 10, 2011 at 7:43 pm

the get it NOW, that is, now that it's in the news and affecting fundraising

weejee November 10, 2011 at 7:56 pm

Do you think they also get that the only frickin' thing that matters in college sports is the bottom line? Not only sweeping sins under the carpet, and the not so much real academics for the jocks, but pre & post-game gatherings for tailgated alums to drink more beer & wine and ogle bushel baskets of young students shakin' their booties as well as the pompoms. Revenue, revenue, and revenue.

Chet Kincaid November 11, 2011 at 2:21 am

College football and basketball are a gigantic farce, and sooner or later, a bunch of high school kids with some smart lawyers and agents are going to get together and force this hypocritical garbage to end by getting paid, legit and straight up. What people are "getting" now, I hope, is that when you see a kid getting raped, you call the police, no matter who you are and who the rapist is.

anniegetyerfun November 11, 2011 at 1:15 am

I have relatives that are freaking out about it. Relatives that, to my knowledge, have never been to Pittsburgh.

ShaveTheWhales November 11, 2011 at 2:59 am

State College. (stupid detail)

LiveToServeYa November 11, 2011 at 7:02 am

Maybe years of abuse by the Catholic church have numbed us.

donner_froh November 10, 2011 at 7:39 pm

Since anyone hired by Herman Cain will be in the same stupid, untrustworthy and ineffectual mold as he is I don't think hiring more people will help.

Thanks anyway Erick.

politics_nerd November 10, 2011 at 8:13 pm

What?

BarackMyWorld November 10, 2011 at 8:31 pm

That photo is begging to be photoshopped or blingeed.

Rotundo_ November 10, 2011 at 8:35 pm

Surrounded by "Class A Failures". Ewick even overstates their talent when slamming them. As failures go, they're pretty mediocre. Class C or less, to be a Class A failure you need to go Bernie Madoff in scale.

tessiee November 10, 2011 at 9:19 pm

So wait… Is a Class A failure better or worse than the Class B and C failures?

I'm making the same hourly wage I made 20 years ago — when I can even find work.
My insurance costs are through the roof.
I paid more in taxes last year than Enron.
But I don't blame Wall Street and the corporations — because I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO UNDERSTANDING OF CAUSE AND EFFECT.

Negropolis November 11, 2011 at 12:55 am

Herman, you said you’d surround yourself with the best people and you’ve surrounded yourself with Class A failures. The problems you are facing are problems of campaign staffing. You’ve failed to live up to your own standard of hiring the best people.

Herman Cain: "Who the fuck is Erick Erickson? How could Herman Cain have sexually assaulted this man? Herman Cain has never even met the man."

Negropolis November 11, 2011 at 1:46 am

Question: About up to where does Erick come to Herman?

ShaveTheWhales November 11, 2011 at 3:00 am

About up to here, when he's in heels.

Negropolis November 11, 2011 at 7:56 am

Well played.

What is it with the commenters at the right-wing sites all having these ridiculous signature quotes at the bottom of each of their comments? Can you imagine how fucking tedious these pages would be if we each concluded every comment with a quote from Saul Alinsky or John Kenneth Galbraith? It might be funny for a day or two, but…

Maybe we could all end our comments with a quote from America's most eloquent political philosopher, George W. Bush. Kinda like this:

"There's no question about it. Wall Street got drunk — that's one of the reasons I asked you to turn off the TV cameras — it got drunk and now it's got a hangover. The question is how long will it sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments." –George W. Bush, speaking at a private fundraiser, Houston, Texas, July 18, 2008

not that Dewey November 11, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Not to worry — Wall Street had some Hair of the Dog, and now it feels like its old self again, ready for more.

"I owe you a good bit of my present career in radio."

America wants to know. When Erick was auditioning for his radio job, did Herman grab the back of Erick's head and shove it into Herman's crotch? Or, is that only required of the lady applicants?

Aaaah, the old Microsoft slogan, Comrade!

Chet Kincaid November 10, 2011 at 8:51 pm

This would be an appropriate time to retort with a certain quote that dare not speak its name…but I refuse!
