Adam Serwer deflates Erick Erickson. Enjoy.
By the way, Serwer also has a good post on silly liberal reactions to Tucson. Which is fine, but I only mention it because I see that a high-ranking Democrat (in this case Jim Clyburn) has actually come out in favor of reviving the Fairness Doctrine. Now, Clyburn is third-ranking Democrat in the House, and third-ranking member of the minority party in the House is sort of like being the back-up to the back-up to the Detroit Lions quarterback in January, but still...this is certainly going to help keep anti-FD rhetoric alive and well for years, I'd guess.
(I'm afraid I tried, and failed, to find some way to work in a reference to the quarterback situation at Lawndale High. Sorry about that).
