On the opening night of the Democratic National Convention, Erickson Tweeted: "First night of the Vagina Monologues and Charlotte going as expected." This sexist comment was disrespectful in light of the many distinguished speakers of the evening, including First Lady Michelle Obama, women's equality leader Lilly Ledbetter, war hero Tammy Duckworth and Leader Nancy Pelosi. If CNN values its brand as a trusted name in news, it should not tolerate its employees making inflammatory remarks such as this one.

      Erick Erickson's latenet sexism may not affect his work but it will ultimately affect the way he sees his world and his comments in the public domain will influence others and make them think its ok to be sexist if someone on TV is doing it so blatantly. But that must stop. He must be fired, even if to prove a point that this time of bull crap will not be tolerated.
