GOP's 'Pledge to America' Slammed by Prominent Conservative

The Republican "Pledge to America," released today, has taken a beating from conservative blogger Erick Erickson, the man behind

The New York Daily News is reporting that Erickson called the pledge the "most ridiculous thing to come out of Washington since George McClellan," a reference to the ineffective Union general during the Civil War.

But, wait, there's more. From the Daily News:
Erickson blasted the document for not providing specific, long-term solutions. 
 "Yes, yes, it is full of mom-tested, kid-approved pablum that will make certain hearts on the right sing in solidarity," he wrote on his blog, "But like a diet full of sugar, it will actually do nothing but keep making Washington fatter before we crash from the sugar high."

Since when do we expect anything other than window dressing from the GOP? It's yet another Potemkin "Contract with America."

Boehner can't spend much time on it. He has golfing to do.
