Preliminary thoughts on Cantor’s loss

This is huge.

Eric Cantor is not just some backbencher. This is as big as when Tom Foley lost his seat in the Gingrich Revolution.

And Cantor outspent his Teabagger opponent by 25-1. And lost. Humiliatingly.

Cantor was the epitome of the GOP establishment. And that helped him not a jot.

What this shows is that there is a ferment on the Right against politics as usual. But the Right is so far out of the mainstream that it opens a door for the center-left.

If Democrats learn anything from tonight’s results, it’s that the GOP is vulnerable. All GOP candidates will now lurch to the right to avoid Cantor’s fate. And in doing so, they will be positioning themselves out of the mainstream. What works in a GOP primary does not work in a general election, as Mitt Romney showed.

Gird your loins, Obots. Things just got interesting.

Chat on!
