But who will Joe the Plumber endorse ?


Does anyone really care what he thinks or has to say. Really TPM


“There’s a real difference between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party," Cantor told the BBC in October. “And I would say Donald Trump is reflective of the modern day Republican Party, he’s not a conservative.”

(Edited for reality purposes)

I’ll agree with Cantor in regards to the conservative part. Like most in that party, the current GOP front runner is an opportunistic authoritarian.

like these guys



Trump most certainly represents Republicans in this nation. He’s a know-nothing buffoon with no real ideas for dealing with national and international issues. He has ADHD, likely reads very little, is a narcissist, a xenophobe and bigot, and dismissive of those with different beliefs or solutions to problems. He’s always right and you’re always wrong. I think he represents Republicans perfectly. Throw in the fact he’s 40 pounds overweight, an adulterer and insecure about his loss of hair and he’s threaded the needle quite nicely.


Sure, but it’s an excellent headline, for once.


+1 for the sarcastic headline though.

And then Cantor said: “Have you heard the new Britney album? It’s fab!” ~puts headphones back on!~


How the hell Trump can fault Cantor for losing his primary is odd. For his failure Cantor got a better job at a higher rate of pay.


Rule of Acquisition #27: “There’s nothing more dangerous than an honest businessman.”


Cantor made the bold prediction

In the face of mounting media complicity…

A starving wolverine in the passenger seat of your car might compete for that honor.

HEY!!! Get back under your rock, Eric!


How much $$$ is cantor making’ now?

According to a filing with the SEC noted by Business Insider, Moelis will pay Cantor $400,000 in base salary this year and next, with a bonus of $400,000 in 2014 plus $1,000,000 in restricted stock units. The base salary alone compares very favorably with his salary as a member of Congress, which was less than half that amount.


Who dug this azzhole up? Gee, if Cantor said so, it must mean Trump will survive as old Eric is always wrong!


Cantor Can’t…

So Cantor, the man who bet against America, is now betting against “Making America Great Again”?

You can just feel the love for America oozing from Cantor’s patriotic pores.


Or a Tiger.

Nice summation of Mr. Stubby’s “attributes,” steviedee, but you left out short-fingered vulgarian.

Here’s a funny anecdote from the author of that epithet, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter:

Like so many bullies, Trump has skin of gossamer. He thinks nothing of saying the most hurtful thing about someone else, but when he hears a whisper that runs counter to his own vainglorious self-image, he coils like a caged ferret. Just to drive him a little bit crazy, I took to referring to him as a “short-fingered vulgarian” in the pages of Spy magazine. That was more than a quarter of a century ago. To this day, I receive the occasional envelope from Trump. There is always a photo of him—generally a tear sheet from a magazine. On all of them he has circled his hand in gold Sharpie in a valiant effort to highlight the length of his fingers. I almost feel sorry for the poor fellow because, to me, the fingers still look abnormally stubby. The most recent offering arrived earlier this year, before his decision to go after the Republican presidential nomination. Like the other packages, this one included a circled hand and the words, also written in gold Sharpie: “See, not so short!” I sent the picture back by return mail with a note attached, saying, “Actually, quite short.” Which I can only assume gave him fits.
