I told you all once how this is going to go down:
And should he accidentally go too far (and God knows what would actually be too far for CNN at this point) and get canned by CNN, then this is an even bigger win for Erick. Now he gets to be the victim who was silenced by the evil liberal media, and anyone who has been paying attention knows that this is the route to real riches- playing the martyr for the wingnut welfare gravy train.
In fact, as the current incentives are set up, not getting fired by CNN just gives him a steady job and the opportunity to mainstream right-wing bullshit. Getting fired is a path to riches, whether it be in the form of a book or a syndicated radio show or maybe just sympathy checks from the teabagging public. It really is a win-win for Erick, no matter what happens.
It is happening right in front of your very eyes:
RedState.com editor Erick Erickson scored a book deal with Regnery Publishing, poised to publish Red State Uprising in fall of 2010.
I suspect a steady stream of offensive but non-firing offenses until a couple of weeks before the book becomes available, and then he will drop the bomb on CNN, they’ll act shocked and fire him, he’ll be the victim, and then the book tour starts. The mass purchases will push the book up the charts, and he’ll be a fixture at FOX, on the talk circuit, and so on.
