One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.


Erick Erickson is the managing editor of, the largest online community of conservative activists and the most widely read right of center blog on Capitol Hill.

After six years as an attorney in Macon, Georgia at Sell & Melton, L.L.P., Erick worked for a year in Washington, D.C., commuting each week from Macon. He started an online advocacy project for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. During the time, Erick worked behind the scenes at RedState, where he had developed a following for political commentary. Erick Erickson's homepage.

Redstate may be a conservative site in the broad sense of the word. If you prefer your conservativism shrill and invective laden then by all means visit Redstate. But it is certainly not the type of conservative site that I prefer.

Redstate frequently bans conservatives who disagree with some of their hyperbole. It goes like this...

1. someone disagrees with their post

2. the admins come out and do a Heckle and Jeckle act to try to make the poster angry by calling them names

3. if the poster responds in kind, they ban them for an ad hominem attack

4. if the poster does not get angry they eventually ban them anyway

During Bush's administration, people who were clearly conservatives were banned for suggesting that Bush was spending too much or that we shouldn't invade Iraq.

The site had a blanket ban of Ron Paul supporters back during the campaign.

Do a little research and notice how the admins operate. They preach conservative unity but don't practice it on their own site.
