Erick Erickson is getting his HANDS DIRTY. Not like that, perverts:
I have been doing more than I’ve done in the past for candidates for office. Usually I write about them here at RedState, give them money, and encourage you guys to help. Rarely do I get out on the campaign trail myself. I don’t have the time.
But I’ve been making the time because it is just that important.
SUCKERS! Remember before, when I was telling you all that the fate of the Republic was at stake? I really didn't give a fuck back then. Hope you didn't believe me.
In the past few days, and particularly over the weekend, I made a concerted effort to get to some rallies for folks who made it into runoffs. On Saturday, I spoke at a fundraiser for Jody Hice, running to replace Paul Broun in Congress.
He has made an effort to get to some rallies, you guys. It is utterly critical that this guy gets elected:
Hice's path to politics began in court. In 2003, inspired by "Ten Commandments Judge" Roy Moore, the embattled chief justice of the Alabama supreme court, Hice started an organization to defend the right to post tablets in public places. Hice convinced cash-strapped Barrow County to enter into a lengthy legal battle and promised to reimburse the county for all expenses. But when the county lost the case and was forced to cover the expenses of the winning side (the ACLU), Hice backed out, leaving the local government with a $150,000 tab—and Hice with a reputation as a social-conservative leader in the state. He first ran for Congress in 2010, and made it to the primary runoff in a neighboring district, but he lost to now-Rep. Rob Woodall.
Hice's biggest splash that cycle: a billboard featuring President Obama's name next to a Soviet symbol. As he writes in his book, "In my opinion, the 'C' in Obama’s slogan should have been the hammer and sickle, the emblem of socialism, because that is the type of 'change' he implemented."
