The man behind RedState.com shakes up the Republican Party – St. Petersburg Times


MACON, Ga. — Between pecks at his laptop, Macon City Council member Erick Erickson ticked off some of his goals for the new year:

• Beating Gov. Charlie Crist and electing Marco Rubio as Florida’s junior senator.

• “Taking out” Republican Sen. Bob Bennett of Utah because he’s a centrist.

• Ensuring the Republican establishment receives no credit for whatever success the GOP has in November.

This die-hard Republican doesn’t even necessarily hope Republicans win congressional majorities.

“If they get back into power, who’s going to be in leadership again? The same guys that led them into the minority, and they’re going to think that nothing was wrong,” Erickson said. “The top priority has to be beating the Republican establishment.”

    I am absolutely looking to watch for the iPad from Apple, and I am amazed to see what kinds of gamez and applications will be programmed for it. I just don’t get the idea some of the nitpicky criticisms in this blog. Size of the bezel?? Pffff!
