How did the No. 2 man in the House lose a primary? Chalk it up to immigration and the Tea Party. Its one of the most shocking losses in U.S. electoral historyand its bad for America. Heres the thing: Eric Cantor did not fall asleep in this race. He spent around $5 million. He ran lots of TV ads. He knew this was going to be a close one. He campaigned. And he still got creamed.
And heres the other thing: Cantor was not an enemy of the Tea Party. He was in fact the Tea Partys guy in the leadership for much of the Barack Obama era. He carried the tea into the speakers office. And still he got creamed.

Once upon a time Cantor was considered conservative — then he was mortally wounded by Potomac Fever.
Everybody across the political spectrum always complains how 95% of congressmen get re-elected and shows the establishment runs the country. Throw one RINO overboard and now its the end of the world.

here that folks- he was our guy.....
Why bother commenting on a screed from someone so clueless.
Is this guy on crack? Didn't Cantor say he was going to destroy the tea party in VA by slating their candidates?
If Tomasky’s against it, this is a GOOD thing!
i mean hear....
Was it an open primary? Does that mean that Dems voted for Brat?
LOL—bad for America? No, bad for you destructive commie libs. We’re coming for you in November!!!
Cry Me a River
Somebody doesn’t know how to spell ‘awesome’.
You bring up an excellent point.
Michael Tomasky = ass clown
DC is a lovely place.
Few can resist its charms over the course of several terms.
Ironic part is Cantor will now go out and make some serious coin in lobbying or law firms.
If Michael Tomasky isn’t happy about it I’m ecstatic!
RAT/RINO butt-hurt is large.....
Yeah, and Rove is too :)
