May I wish you Bye?
BYE BYE BYE ERIC CANTOR!!!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHH :) :) :) :) !!!!
So what did his “no” votes get him? I saw this newsflash and had to check it twice. Good riddance to this lying a&&.
Yessss! One down, more to go! :) :)
Loving this news.
Try singing. It may be a much longer career. TRAITOR.
Way to go NCLB!! :)
@Messina2012 If DEMS stick to #Obamacare, #ImmigrationReform, #EqualPay & #ComonSenseGunControl they can CRUSH @GOP on 4Nov14. #YesWEMUST— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 11, 2014
Thanks, Bob. The TeaBaggers control the GOP who fears them as mice fear cats. Canter thought that his behind-the-scene machinations had cemented his post. This man could have used his influence to move this country forward, make compromise with the President and pass &*^&%& bills. No. He was Mr. No. Let him take his CAN’T DO strategy elsewhere.
But I must confess that the website of the Dem candidate leaves a lot to be desired. He needs help.
I do hope folk will support him and, NCLB, I think his modest website is just the right message at this stage – a citizen striving to serve. Stark contrast to ‘big money candidates.’ Let’s just hope #OFA_VA will support him, strongly.
Even though I am far removed from his state, I will support him because I am afraid of this TeaBagger.
Let’s all encourage the DEMS to support Prof Jack Trammell ….
ALERT: @OFA @OFA_VA @DCCC @NancyPelosi @Pfeiffer44 @DWSTweets @TheDemocrats Let's get this fella elected on 4Nov14 trammellforcongress.com— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 11, 2014
“I see Americans as Kennedy did -confident, courageous and persevering. I will work hard in the coming months to hear you, and to communicate effectively what I believe we can accomplish together.”
Yes WE MUST
This bickering is pointless, once Eric Cantor is defeated we will crush the rebellion.
See Ya Dont let the door hit ya!
They just picked a Democrat. Anyone know who that is?
Jack Trammell, a professor who works at the same college in VA as the newly elected BRAT.
I hope the Dem Prof is more popular than the TeaBagger at the college.
I’m not particularly concerned one way or the other – it’s not good news for the GOP. Either the seat is occupied by the Dem, or a Teabagger who will force the GOP to far-right extremism, making it harder for them in Nov 2014 and 2016.
yep…people wake the hell up or suffer the consequences. BIG TURN OUT NEEDED.
PUT IT THIS WAY…IF THE TEABAGGER GRABS THE CUP…THE CRAZY TEABAG PATRIOTS WILL BE HAWKING GUNS IN THE PARKING GARAGE!………FAR RIGHT EXTREMISM…IS LOOKING FOR AN EXCUSE TO CHARGE THE WHITEHOUSE!….VOTE PEOPLE!
I went to his website and was ready to donate, I’m so pumped. However, the donate button is not activated. That needs to be activated soon. Obviously, this came as a surprise to everyone!
Cantor's friends are FURIOUS, said he was told by consultants that he was up 20-30 points, didn't need to worry…— Robert Costa (@costareports) June 11, 2014
Would one of the friends be Karl Rove?
He must share Mittsy Romney’s inevitable optimism.
Another Willard got fooled? Hmm?
With friends like that ……
Who’d they hire Dick Morris?
Who’s his campaign manager, Dick Morris?
@costareports Must be friends like #BainMitt's 'advisers' and dudes like Dick Morris and the Rover … HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA … #DelusionalTwits— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 11, 2014
Dear Bob – I was reading the sad of some earlier posts – your tweet has put a smile back on my face – every one of those 140 characters is so perfect in this situation
But my O my – has the GOP gone off the rails big time – the tail has become the dog. President Obama is the face of sanity among the truly insane.
Did he use Romney’s Pollsters??
Shucks I thought I got first!!
Dear @TheDemocrats: #Cantor had big money and lost big. Put out a positive message and we can win in Nov.— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) June 11, 2014

Drink you my friend, because tomorrow we shall dine in he’ll.
hell have two or three Manhattans…….then do a jig around the house.
I am done sipping my Bourbon. Thanks Eric Cantor. It was a Looong Time Coming……….Over 20 yrs in making…….Hennessy Courvoisier. Now should McConnell gets the kick in Nov, I will drink another glass.
Now is Graham wins in SC, they will ignore that. Immigration Reform was supported by him since 2006.
One down, two to go: Graham & McConnell. If they go down I’m drinking an entire bottle of champagne. But Dems MUST get out and VOTE.
Forget Heat/Spurs, this right here is so much more fun.
I know, Don.
Very rare that anything can compete with NBA finals for me.
Now, if my Knicks were playing, I would have missed the whole Cantor thing. Pre-game game post-game etc.
Real #losers ? All those corrupt #pollsters who had @ericcantor winning by double digits.— (@amk4obama) June 11, 2014
And all the puntwits on cable. Assholes all of them and not a brain between them.
Hello Amk. You are back, Yes!
Hi Nena. Family unit time for daughter’s b’day.
What’s wrong with you, bro? Hardly seen a peek out of you! You have been quite low-key ever since you went off on the birthday jaunt – rendered speechless by all the moula you were forced to shed?
Perfect……..Just Loving this evening. I was going to help do the lawn……No Can’t Do!
Nena, should I brag (aching though I am) that *I* have finally cut the lawn, front and back, using my new lawn mower? Just got done not too long ago, showered, ate, and opened the TOD gate to see Eric heading for the door. Naturally I grinned. Suh-weet! Certainly made up for the poor start I had after I left the house this morning.
Shorter pundits: We are on TV every day and know everything. But not one of us thought to even mention that Cantor might be vulnerable.— Steve Weinstein (@steveweinstein) June 11, 2014
CNN Blitzer is going to have a cow
Hope he does; can’t watch, but somebody report back to us, okay?
That’s why I always caution folks to not trust the media’s reporting on these races until the DAY OF THE ELECTION. They hyperfocus on the Dems and under-report anything to be perceived as slightly bad for the R’s.
That’s what I just said in a rant below.
Funny how the Media Loves to Poll on POTUS.
This is great. The media is having a Cow!
There, there. http://t.co/utKqd8BfbS— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) June 11, 2014

……there, there, maybe Fox will hire both you and McTurtle…..maybe you two can have a drink at that hotel where you planned my “one term as president”……hahahahahahaha.
There is still a steady but quiet justice that moves with a beautiful message: ” Fret not because of your enemies who plot and plan plans to hurt a good man. You even plan your wicked deeds to try to block and hurt a good and decent man’s plans; but your knock yourself out and are no more.”
I am so grateful for the answer to my quiet prayers and supplications every day for justice to be served, and tonight my heart is so grateful that Eric Cantor is out. Keep the faith, my TOD family. I am having a celebration in my space tonight. HZ
“Prayer Posses” are at their posts standing proud and tall!
Thank you for keeping the faith and encouraging us here to do the same.
ROFLMAO. I have to get to work. albeit with a huge smile.
O my – you are all excelling on this thread :) :) :)
McConnell must be sweatin!!
I cannot stand all these political talking heads not even hinting at the fact that they didn’t know that an upset was possible. It would be fine except they are ALL KNOWING NOW as to why he lost. Really? Really? So you preach at us now like you have all the answers – the indisputable reasons as to WHY he lost and we are supposed to trust your shit but you knew ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about this race 1/2 hour ago. GTFOH
Well said forus – this says so much more about the pundits and their polls than about Cantor and the GOP. So busy hating on a POW that they missed the news that was in front of their eyes.
Chuck is making sense.
Hate won this race.
The winning thing was the visual of the last few days. The crowd of children warehoused in AZ.
This will be part of the GOp roadmap. Increased hate especially towards immigrants.
John Boehner just walked up to the restaurant to mine. Do I ask him how he feels about losing Cantor? #HardChoices http://t.co/pxUn9QMRK0— Clara Ritger (@clararitger) June 11, 2014
Boehner looks ill…cigarette in one hand, and leaning on phone with the other…
He is the color of the building
@clararitger Just tell him that he should retire now. Best advice anyone will have ever given him. #LandslideDEMS2014 #YesWEWILL— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 11, 2014
Boehner is probably happy. Cantor has been undermining Boehner at every turn.
that is true

Congrats to @DaveBratVA7th on tonight's win. Looking forward to a winning ticket in November!— Ed Gillespie (@EdWGillespie) June 11, 2014
Yes, you read that right. No sitting House Majority Leader has lost since 1899.— Emily Cahn (@CahnEmily) June 11, 2014
So sad :( :(
Cantor cannot run as an indie per VA election laws, but he has a big decision to make: will he launch a write-in candidacy? #VA07— Dave Wasserman (@Redistrict) June 10, 2014
it's the biggest blow to the GOP establishment in years. Whole network of DC Rs have been wired into Cantor, prepping for when he got gavel— Robert Costa (@costareports) June 11, 2014

Cantor was the mastermind (in 12/08!) of the fight-Obama-on-everything strategy. And he’s getting bounced for insufficient right-wingery?
Do we have a Dem candidate to run against Brat? There seems to be confusion, have seen conflicting info——have even seen 2 diff names as the Dem candidate.
@tmtweetz @ArrogantDemon The winner of the GOP primary will face Democratic Party nominee Jack Trammell – from WaPo article— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) June 10, 2014
There’s a guy named Jack Trammel who is the official party nominee.
There’s another guy named Dickinson who is a far left candidate who didn’t bother with the party and is running as a Dem without their imprimatur, so to speak. This may turn out to be a problem, but I don’t know how much of a chance we have of winning this district anyway. Need to see some stats.
This is a solid red, gerrymandered district. So a Dem win is possible, but highly unlikely. It doesn’t really matter because either way does not bode well for the GOP. The entire party will be aptly painted by Dems as extreme on account of this development – not a good thing for either the 2014 midterms or the 2016 elections.

They have tried to hurt our PBO and it is coming back to bite them in the butt.
NEXT…..Mitch Turtle McC.

Worth remembering the GOP leadership encouraged and enabled the Tea Party before it turned on them
But why is Rachel gushing all over this T Bagger?
Because he is a Libertarian
If it about Chuck……he is their political director.
Dr. Maddow knows more than Todd…….But VA politics? Well, where Cantor is concerned, Dr Maddow probably isn’t all knowing about him.
I have been watching my tape of Maddow and do not see her gushing over Bratt. Think she is just enthused that Cantor unexpectedly got beat, not only beat but walloped.
