Erick Erickson’s Shocking Tong Tweet

Now that he’s with Fox News instead of CNN, all bets are off. More like, the chains are off and RedState‘s Editor is speaking with a candor he didn’t a week ago. Sure, it’s Mardi Gras time in New Orleans, but not elsewhere. Still, like BuzzFeed and their Speaker Boehner booger post, Erickson threw caution to the wind.

For the uninitiated, King Cake is a Mardi Gras thing. They bake a circular cake and hide a little plastic baby inside. The rule is, if you get the slice with the baby in it, you have to host the next party. We know he’s a family man who stepped out of his norm, but just for now, might want to keep Erickson away from tongs, babies and Planned Parenthood.
