Often the target of criticism, controversial central Georgia pundit Erick Erickson recently reversed the roles, explaining in the process why he considers his wife his hero.
Less than a month ago, the former Macon City Councilmandrew fire over his comments about "breadwinner moms" during an appearance on Fox News.
But on Thursday, he responded to singer Melissa Etheridge's criticism of Angelica Jolie's decision to have a preventative mastectomy by penning a column about his wife's own.
Titled "My wife's choice, like Angelina Jolie's, is rooted in bravery and courage, not fear," Erickson said his wife had the surgery just three months after they were married and through her ordeal, he came to appreciate what women endure after having the procedure.
He writes that he hopes Etheridge's comments won't make other women "second-guess a decision that could save their lives."
