What would Erick Erickson’s vagina say?

Erick Erickson, right wing blogger and political commentator, is afraid of ladies that won’t submit to an agenda that destroys every right we’ve earned. So much so, that he called the Democratic National Convention the “Vagina Monologues.” 

He apologized. But not really, he apologized for offending you, you easily offended vagina-haver. He didn’t apologize for his larger transgression, probably because he doesn’t realize it. Erickson is afraid of vaginas, so even when women are  expressing themselves in way that is nothing similar to the style of expression in a popular college play–all he sees is a flying vagina.

But the real question is: How does Erick Erickson even know what the Vagina Monologues are? And, is he secretly a fan? If so, Erick–what would YOUR vagina say? Or wear?

Other than a big sign that says, “I’m a douche-bag.”

Update: Ultraviolet is asking that CNN fire Erick Erickson. Sign the petition if you think that a CNN correspondent shouldn’t be calling the DNC the “Vagina Monologues.”

    Fox Boobs (Fox News as Norman Goldman calls it) has a job awaiting Erickson once he’s fired, I suppose. I can’t believe CNN scraped to the bottom of the garbage can by hiring Erickson. Go to Media Matters and read his history of conserva-sleaze.

    Erickson is well-known in the Macon, GA. area for his use of demagoguery to offend those not agreeing with his narrow-minded sexists, racists, and homophobic conservative agenda. He is simply a snollygoster (opportunist) intent on using hate speech to line his pockets to the detriment of those preferring logic and rationalization instead of his deliberate lies. Fire him now CNN.

    Is that supposed to be an insult? Am I supposed to be offended by that? First I’d need to have a low opinion of “Vagina Monologues” I guess.

    I know the names of plays too! Let’s call Paul Ryan “Rock of Ages” and Mitt Romney “The Book of Mormon” (which I got to see and liked, actually, but go along for the gag.)

      Erm… the Vagina Monologues has the problem of massive rape apology.
      “The Little Coochie Snorcher that Could” involves a girl being raped and having said raped being portrayed in a positive light. Its pro-pedophilia.

      That said, I’m 99% sure that wasn’t what he was going for. He was just calling the dems vaginas.

        I’ve not read that monologue from it. I’ve read a few that seemed fine.

          Also,” Erm”…even wikipedia said that line was removed from later editions, which could explain it not being the first thing that comes to mind.

          Also, I know what the guy’s point was. My point was that it was a ridiculous remark that to me deserved a ridiculous response, so that’s what I gave. Actually, I can’t believe I missed a crack like “Let’s refer to the RNC as ‘Wicked'” , that would’ve worked.

Male viewer writes letter to the editor explaining why women can’t play soccer

This weekend, England’s women’s soccer team played Germany in an historic match at Wembly national stadium. As the Independent reports, “It was the first standalone game for women at the home of football, drew a record crowd of 46,000, was shown live in TV coverage on the BBC, and introduced a generation of young girls to the idea of the women’s team being treated the same as the men for the first time.” 

After the game, one male viewer, David Hickey, wrote a letter to the editor asking why it was aired when women’s soccer clearly doesn’t compare to the men’s game. “Women can’t play football,” he wrote. “They don’t even know the basic rules.” Here’s his full message:
