It may be time to commit Erick Erickson to the Asylum for the Politically Insane

I fear Erick Erickson is on the verge of having a nervous breakdown. 
Since becoming one of the founders of the NeverTrump movement, his radio ratings have fallen and in his latest article he demonstrates classic psychological projection by saying a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for Hillary Clinton. 

Erick Erickson writes

“At this point, a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for Hillary Clinton. As long as the GOP sticks with Trump, it is helping Hillary Clinton get elected. Donald Trump’s continued existence in the race is nothing more than a shield for Hillary Clinton.”

Here’s the definition of the psychological term known as “projection”. 

Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.

I think Erickson can’t handle the fact that he’s become a useful idiot for Hillary Clinton.  He can’t handle that he doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude to get into a rough fight against the Crooked Hillary machine.  Or in other words, Erick Erickson is a coward!    Too bad though, I thought he was a man.
