I wonder how much he paid her?
Seriously, how much did Erick Ericksen pay Suzanne Smalley for this write-up in Newsweek? I get the feeling that Ms. Smalley doesn't understand the basics on blog traffic or just what pathetic shape Redstate.com is actually in financially ... at least based on their begging for supporters to give them money so they can upgrade the website to something like Daily Kos. And the reason that they have to beg for money is that the traffic on the website is so low that they can't make enough money from their ad stream to pay for it. Yeah, really influential there.
She'd have been better off featuring the people from The Next Right which though conservative, has some interesting thinking going on there.
