Erick Erickson

Every morning, Erick Erickson rolls out of his race-car bed, changes out of his feetie pajamas, pours a bowl of Coco Puffs, (for which he is CooCoo!) and opens up the morning paper. Skimming through the headlines, he pauses at each article and thinks to himself "how can I make this story be about the badness of Barack Obama?"

Today, the story was Honduras.

President Obama gave a mild sort-of-condemnation of the military coup which ousted President Manuel Zelaya. So how do we twist this? How can this be a story about Obama's treachery and wickedness? Hmmmmmmmmm.........................

In the battle between good and evil, Barack Obama endorses evil

Whether Hamas, Hezbollah, Chavez, or Castro, Barack Obama faithfully sides with American enemies over American interests.

Oh, well done! That's a finely crafted, attention-garbbing headline! Now to fill in all the blank space left under the title part, and I can watch my cartoons!

We need to pay attention to Obama’s foreign policy. It is shaping up to be fatal to American interests.

Fatal! That'll scare some people!

He has given only tepid support to democratic protestors in Iran

And God knows how strong U.S. backing would have increased the credibility of the protestors. And our "American interests" lie directly in having the slightly-less crazy hardliner be the figurehead of Iran!

He refuses to take on the North Koreans despite their intentions to launch a missile toward Hawaii.

I gotta tell you, there are fireworks stores in Tennessee with more impressive arsenals than Kim Jong Il. The odds of him being able to hit Hawaii with one of his sad little missles are about the same as Erick Erickson's odds of hitting Angelina Jolie with his sad little missle.

And now Barack Obama is standing with Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, and a host of communist regimes and sympathizers in Central and South America on the issue of Honduras.

Also Canada, Russia, the United nations, the European Union, but whatever.

Oh, Erick, Obama and Chavez also agree that the sky is blue! They must be in cahoots!

Barack Obama sees it differently. He is supporting the democratically ousted President of Honduras. He joins Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.

Democratically ousted? Losing an election would be democratcally ousted, I guess, but being evicted from the country by one's own military? That's a coup. And just because Fidel Castro agrees doesn't make it untrue.
