• Erick Erickson Is One of the 53 Percent

    You've probably heard of this "We Are the 99 Percent" website that's sort of like online component of the Occupy Wall Street protests and is a super duper amazing bummer to read, right?

    Problem is, it's all liberal and anti-capitalist and socialist and Communist and probably gay too or something, so there's really no good way for Tea Party America to join in and complain too. And Tea Party American really really likes to complain about stuff. So, that really puts them in a pickle.

    Fortunately, some inspired patriot started a conservative answer to "We Are the 99 Percent" and called brilliantly called it "We Are the 53 Percent," and it's all for the 53 percent of Americans who are unfairly not yet poor and starving and clothed in tattered rags enough to get out of paying income tax.

    And, hey look, it's Erick Erickson — who apparently makes so little money as a pundit on CNN that he was forced to get two other jobs (probably as, like, a busboy or a human target or something) — and he's one of the 53 percent

    "I work 3 jobs. I have a house a can't sell. My family insurance costs are outrageous. But I don't blame Wall Street. Suck it up you whiners. I am the 53% subsidizing you so you can hang out on Wall Street and complain."

    Yeah! All you non-income-tax-paying poor people whiners need to stop whining about how the country's falling apart!

    There's already a whole conservative movement that's got that job covered.
