Powerhouse figures of every ilk have publicly thrown their weight behind candidates in the GOP field or stood by their man, President Obama for the upcoming 2012 Presidential Election. But there’s one candidate making a “meteoric” rise in the eyes of one particular right-leaning blogger. His chosen candidate? A doomsday meteor that will turn our once-proud country into a desolate wasteland.
RedState.com editor Erick Erickson came out in full support of “The Sweet Meteor of Death”, a tongue-in-cheek candidate put out by the political blog Ace of Spades HQ.
“You could presume that being a conservative of course I would choose something like a great fireball coming from the sky annihilating us all because women and minorities are hardest hit,” Erickson said on his radio show.
Though this comment was intentionally incendiary, Erickson followed with the real reason he has decided to endorse an apocalyptic event over a field of empty suits: he simply hates the field of candidates.
“I’ve decided a pox on all their houses, they’re all terrible,” he said. “I feel like a man without a country.”
Erickson has been a huge critic of front-runner Mitt Romney, and many of his followers have expected him to announce his support of Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum at some point, but Erickson doesn’t think that either of them can beat President Obama in the upcoming elections. With time falling off the clock, Erickson has either lost all hope and given in to cynicism, or waiting on a hail-mary play that changes the game.
“I hold out hope that someone or some meteor saves us from ourselves,” he said.
Have you lost hope for the upcoming election, or are things proceeding swimmingly for your candidate?
