Music to My Ears

Virginia Republican Congressman Eric Cantor shows us all how the game is played in the big leagues. Responding to the calumny hurled by Democrats against Obamacare opponents, charging them with participating in or inciting violence, Cantor swung hard and hit the pitch deep into the Left field seats, the cheap seats.

Cantor has only been a congressman for a few years, but he's quickly worked his way off the bench and onto the starting lineup. Keep an eye on him. In the meantime, if you can, call or e-mail his office and let him know you appreciate what he did this afternoon.

By the way, until today I had no idea he was Jewish. Highlighting, once again, a key difference between conservatives and liberals. We conservatives rarely count, or even notice for that matter, race, color, ethnicity, religious affiliation, etc. Liberals, by contrast, do so almost by nature. They also routinely play the victim and had Cantor been a liberal Democrat instead, is there any doubt that he and his party would have long ago played his Jewishness for sympathy and political leverage?


  1. Wise Sage,

    Cantor is an interesting guy. He is the only Jewish Republican in the House of Representatives. I think he has a great future ahead of him.

  2. Thanks sf. Frankly, I think the whole health-care debate has revealed a young, but solid and deep GOP bench. (Opening day's just a week or so away and I couldn't help myself.)
