Calling him "a perfect fit," CNN's so-called Best Political Team has added a mean whopper of a new player - rightwing RedState.com's
Erick Erickson. CNN political director Sam Feist praised Erickson as
"an agenda-setter whose words are closely watched." Is he referring to
the time Erickson called
Michelle Obama a "Marxist harpy,"  or when he told
"ugly feminazis" to "return to their kitchens"? Just wondering.

"Joining CNN is like coming home," said Erickson.
