(Newser) – editor Erick Erickson has finally endorsed a presidential candidate: The Sweet Meteor of Death, a joke candidate put forward by political blog Ace of Spades HQ. "You could presume that being a conservative of course I would choose something like a great fireball coming from the sky annihilating us all because women and minorities are hardest hit," Erickson quipped on his radio show. But no, the real reason is simply that he can't stand the current field.

"I've decided a pox on all their houses, they're all terrible," the influential blogger said. "I feel like a man without a country." Erickson has been a vocal Mitt Romney critic, so many had expected him to throw his weight behind Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum, the Hill reports. But in a blog post, Erickson explained that he doubts either can beat President Obama, so he wants to see a brokered convention. "I hold out hope that someone or some meteor saves us from ourselves."

And we thought this campaign was going to turn dull after Cain and Bachmann quit. On the contrary it just keeps getting funnier!

See the real problem is the GOP threw out their only truly *perfect* candidate early in the primaries ;-)

How about the sweet meteor of death fly right up Erick Erickson's honky-asscrack! He has got two candidates that probably support every single platform issue that cockmuncher has EVER advocated for. And still he isn't happy. Still he's bitching! Get up off your ass and campaign for Santorum, Erickson you big pussy!! Jesus Christ Santorum is perfect Red State material. I doubt there is an inch of daylight between Santorum and Erickson on any issue of note.What really bugs Erickson is that he KNOWS Santorum cannot and will not win. Why? Because the American People are not all a bunch of stupid Nazi teaparty brownshirts and they never will be. They will not give up their freedom to the Catholic Church and REDSTATE fuckin' KNOWS IT! O The Sweet Schadenfreude! Too bad, Erick!!
