There’s plenty of bloggers on both sides of the political spectrum who take themselves and their supposed influence a bit too seriously. But Erick Erickson sets the standard:
I am more and more mindful — and I used to be oblivious to the fact — that when I endorse a candidate or support a position, the implication is that RedState does too. In fact, it is why I expressly refuse to endorse a lot of things I’m asked to endorse. I know people don’t want my endorsement so much as they want the implication of RedState’s endorsement.
I’m glad Erick is no longer oblivious to the massive impact his opinions have on elections.
