Time for Eric Cantor to try to Find a Job in the Economy that He Helped to Destroy

Even my 8-year-old pug who sleeps through pretty much everything these days took notice of this…

In what was described as a political “earthquake,” the No. 2 Republican in the House, Eric Cantor, lost his primary on Tuesday to a college professor and political neophyte.

With 97% of precincts reporting from the Richmond-area district, Cantor trailed Dave Brat 56% to 44%, according to the Virginia Secretary of State’s website. Turnout was low.

“This came out of nowhere,” said Mark Preston, CNN’s executive political editor, who said a defeat for Cantor would have national implications since he has been viewed as a potential speaker.

“This will be an earthquake” for Republicans, said CNN Political Analyst David Gergen. “I think this will send shockwaves through the Republican ranks.”

…and immediately began laughing uncontrollably.
