Liberal Atlantic Calls RedState's Erickson "Most Powerful Conservative in America"

Liberal Atlantic Monthly's title reads:

Is the Most Powerful Conservative in America Losing His Edge?

The writer posted, in part:

.......Erickson-the editor in chief of RedState.com, a right-wing pundit whom Democrats loathe and Republicans fear, a man known for his intemperate remarks, and arguably the most powerful conservative in America today-eats his chicken wings with a fork and knife.

.........Over the past decade, Erickson, who is 39, has emerged as a driving force behind the Tea Party.........

.........Erickson is famous for saying things that are not polite. There was the time, in 2009, when he called retired Supreme Court Justice David Souter a "goat fucking child molester." During the Occupy protests, he said his heart was gladdened by "watching a hippie protester get Tased." He nicknamed Wendy Davis, the Texas state senator, "Abortion Barbie." And in a blog post considering whether President Obama was "shagging hookers," he called Michelle Obama a "marxist harpy" who "would go Lorena Bobbit [sic] on him should he even think about it." (The press, Erickson wrote, wouldn't care: Obama "could be a serial killing transvestite and the media would turn a blind eye.")
