At least from that 60 Minutes piece, and his general douchbaggy nature in any public setting, he comes across as someone who thinks he's 10x more powerful and intelligent than he actually is.

It will be fun seeing him go down in flames when he realizes that they may let Jews into the club, but his chosen set of friends will never let him run the clubhouse.

Get this through your thick skulls Republicans: The Tea Baggers are not your friends. They think everyone is the enemy. They'll eventually turn against themselves but not before chopping you up and wearing your skin as a suit.

The "take out my problem children in the primary" strategy has been happening forever.

The difference being that previous leaders have been smart enough to have multiple layers between themselves and the targeted incumbents. Cantor may was well have gone to a rally and thrown a rotten cabbage.

One look at Cantor tells you everything you need to know. He practically screams "creepy self centered douchenozzle dickbag asshole". Maybe not in that order, but close.

The Tea Party breaks decades of party unity and discipline. It's weakened the Republicans to the point that they can't even field a middle of the road candidate without a major chunk of the party outright dismissing him as unelectable.

It's like the demons that haunt the Democrats have come to haunt the Republicans now.

Remember when the conservatives had a resurgence in the 70's and 80's led by intellectuals like Buckley who made cases for pragmatic counterintuitive positions, and were able to turn people against post-New Deal liberals who were suggesting utopian goals?

Yeah, now the liberals are the ones who caution that their policies will make things better but may not be ideal while conservatives have treated their policy goals as dogma that will lead to a perfect world.

We've gone from the John Birch Society getting kicked out of conservative policy circles for being nuts who saw communist spies under their bed to letting the John Birch Society host CPAC for the last few years: pathetic.

I don't know if this is outfit is just teabagging, or a relic from the Contract With America days. Many of the 94 and 96 Republicans signed pledges to not go to Washington for more than a few years.

IIRC, was three terms in the House, two in the Senate. A few broke the pledges. Many others kept them. A "meh" story if there ever was one. Other than the constituents, does anyone in the House really miss Jack Murtha? How about Byrd and Kennedy in the Senate?

It's a power play by Cantor. He wants to be Speaker of the House badly. He knows Boehner is a weak speaker and has done what he has to undermine Boehner, like causing the budget ceiling cap compromise to fall through. He is trying to oust Boehner's support base and get people more likely to be open to voting for him over Boehner. Cantor is an egomaniac and a sociopath, so he doesn't care who he steps on or screws over to achieve his goal.

He's already gone Derp.

Cantor is relatively young, in a safe district and has an unquenchable thirst for power. He's also a world-class asshole and isn't above any action to get just a step higher.

He'll politically slit Boehner's throat sometime after the 2012 election, whether the Republicans hold their majority or not. The only way he leaves is if he has a way to get even more power or money somewhere else.

2012-04-07 02:26:53 PM
Cantor, Ryan and the big bloc of freshman and often Tea Party-affiliated Republicans are not exactly known for their subtlety in this "generational change in the Republican leadership" business.

There are so many different PACs Cantor could have funnelled this cash through, including, I think, Aaron Schock's. What he was doing would still have been relatively apparent but at least it wouldn't have been so offensively blatant.

What's going to be interesting is seeing if Cantor's intransigence and culture war issue-pushing comes back to bite him in the ass. Like funding incumbents' primary opponents, he's been attempting to strengthen his power base by rallying the most uncompromising and out of touch elements in his party, and the price he's paying is the whole party's appeal to voters. For example, all the debt ceiling shenanigans and his gleeful support of the Blunt amendment. These things were idiotic. But we'll have to wait and see if the voters punish him.

bobbette: Cantor, Ryan and the big bloc of freshman and often Tea Party-affiliated Republicans are not exactly known for their subtlety in this "generational change in the Republican leadership" business.

There are so many different PACs Cantor could have funnelled this cash through, including, I think, Aaron Schock's. What he was doing would still have been relatively apparent but at least it wouldn't have been so offensively blatant.

What's going to be interesting is seeing if Cantor's intransigence and culture war issue-pushing comes back to bite him in the ass. Like funding incumbents' primary opponents, he's been attempting to strengthen his power base by rallying the most uncompromising and out of touch elements in his party, and the price he's paying is the whole party's appeal to voters. For example, all the debt ceiling shenanigans and his gleeful support of the Blunt amendment. These things were idiotic. But we'll have to wait and see if the voters punish him.


There's no reason to believe his voters will punish him. He will win his election by a substantial margin and continue with his crazy plans. There's a good chance many other members of his party will pay, but not him. He will also continue to set Boehner up in public and undermine him in private.

Eric Cantor is the only Jewish Republican in the entire US Congress, both houses.

The Right's vilifying the very word Liberal is the modern day equivalent to pre WWII AntiSemitism.

No, obviously not his voters in VA. I'm talking about whether the electorate shifts away from Cantor's class of 87 freshmen and the candidates he delivers millions of dollars to with ERICPAC. Which they may do by punishing the Republican party as a whole. Like I said, Cantor's leadership in this style of obstructionist and intransigent politics is offering few advantages for the Republicans. Approval of Congress actually dipped to 10% in February, which I believe is the lowest approval rating of all time.

I don't think that the electorate, as a whole, has any idea of what ERICPAC is or which candidates receive money from it. My hope is that people see the nonsense from this Congress and punish their congresscritter accordingly, but everybody knows that even with a 10% approval rating as a whole, the incumbent Representatives all seem to earn >40% individually within their district.

It's a case of people blaming the dickbag in the next district over for all the problems while "their guy" is fighting the good fight for them. S&P downrated the credit of the U.S. specifically due to the shenanigans and brinksmanship of this Congress, yet it is seemingly OK to publicly blame the current President instead.

"On Thursday, March 15, 2012, Leader Cantor was asked by Congressman Schock to contribute to an organization that was supporting Adam Kinzinger in the Illinois election of March 20," Allen wrote. "EricPAC subsequently made a contribution..."


Well, that's interesting.

That's probably illegal, like giving free sandwiches to your volunteers and supporters, or feeding homeless people or pidgeons in California.

But that's just semantics. Tea Partier works for me.

I think I've waited long enough for any further guesses. (I'm not StopArrestingMe; I'll actually go ahead and tell you what you missed.)

You did pretty good on it; you missed Riverside and Hungaroring. You only bolded half of A-1 Ring, but I figured you knew it and just messed up the code. (And yeah, it was F1 tracks specifically. My greatest shame is that I couldn't figure out a way to use Zandvoort.)

Doing StopArrestingMe posts isn't really all that tough if you know what you're doing. I just look at them as word puzzles with the same general theme every time. You pick a category, find items in the category that you can hide in a paragraph and write/misspell whatever dribbling right-wing shiat you have to write in order to make it fit. And then you just do that until you can't find a place for anything else in the category.

AverageAmericanGuy: Mentat: Get this through your thick skulls Republicans: The Tea Baggers are not your friends. They think everyone is the enemy. They'll eventually turn against themselves but not before chopping you up and wearing your skin as a suit.

The Tea Party breaks decades of party unity and discipline. It's weakened the Republicans to the point that they can't even field a middle of the road candidate without a major chunk of the party outright dismissing him as unelectable.

It's like the demons that haunt the Democrats have come to haunt the Republicans now.


Someone--Biden maybe--pointed out that today's Republicans are much like the Democrats of the late 70's. Which is to say they're held in thrall to the party's most rigid, extreme ideological wing. Of course, everyone knows where that got the Democrats starting about 1980...
