Gov. Ricketts's vulgar selfie bud, Erick Erickson, fetes Stothert win with Omaha Steaks, finds out dry ice is the best thing in the box

Erickson got one thing right
Erick Erickson, who boosted Gov. Pete Ricketts's candidacy, once called Supreme Court Justice David Souter a "goatfucking child molester," which is kind of a contradiction, unless the alleged goat really was a kid.
     Ricketts paid tribute to Erickson by appearing at his Red State confab and taking a selfie.
     Now Erickson has tweeted his little celebration of GOP Mayor Stothert's Omaha reelection win yesterday with an Instagram celebrating the arrival at his house of a shipment of Omaha Steaks.
     In 2012, Consumer Research looked at a number of reviews of Omaha Steaks (sadly, none reviewed the company's dry ice) and found the other contents of the company's shipping boxes to be sorely lacking:
Omaha meats do not earn the highest ratings in any of the reviews we read. Paul Lukas' review in Money magazine gets right to the point: "While Omaha pioneered the category, it's not a premium vendor." Cook's Illustrated, meanwhile, pans Omaha meat's regular boneless strip as "thin" and "grainy," and the company's Private Reserve strip fares even worse, earning comments like "tough," "stringy" and "chewy." No reviewer rates Omaha beef as the best mail-order steak.
