Chaos erupts at Cantorís election night headquarters after his departure

Then it got really rambunctious. In the room of downcast Cantor supporters, a new energy suddenly erupted — but not the kind they wanted election night. A group of immigration activists stormed the ballroom, screaming and waving a flag. “What do we want? Immigration reform! When do we want it? Now!”

Couldn't think of a more perfect ending.

Adios, Senor Cantor!

I’d say they were an election late and many votes short. Never fear however, Obama is going to “phone and pen” it for them.

I bet the fact that Eric lost really upset their plans.

The fact that he scurried off like a little weasel says he was privy to and endorsed their little "tantrum."

That would have been the most ridiculous gang fight since the Jets and Sharks mixed it up in West Side Story.

“further depressing the stagnant wages of the middle class that are being further eroded by higher taxes and the unprecedented grand theft of disposable income “

that’s the plan, to make us brazil.

I missed Cantor’s concession speech.

Did he voice his support for Brat — you know, in an effort to UNITE THE PARTY and all that?!?! Cuz that’s what conservatives are always told, right? We must join together to fight the “real enemy” the Democrats.

I don't see how any amnesty proponent can complain about trespassers or party crashers.

They're really just undocumented guests...
