    Apparently the House Majority leader is "too liberal" for Virginia Republicans. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/files/elections/2014/by_state/VA_Page_0610.html?SITE=AP&SECTION=POLITICS

    There is a real disagreement in the Republican party about who and what is the party position, and many conservatives believe the establishment has abandoned them.

    Cantor has a 100% rating from the National Right to Life Committee, an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association and a 0% rating from the AFL-CIO political arm.

    It also says "Cantor is the only Jewish Republican in the United States Congress". Makes you wonder if that had something to do with his loss.

    Don't look at me, I didn't do it.

    Well I assume liberals are happy. Cantor was the #2 man next to Boehner.

    Personally I could care less. This is a government that ignores IRS scandals, pretends to deal with the VA scandals but only end up firing people rather than hiring more staff which is needed, does not hold Obama accountable for virtually anything he does, and basically caves to his every whim.

    Heads should start rolling, it's about time.

    Eric Cantor raised $1 million from the GOP establishment while his opponent mustered only $200,000 from conservatives but he won anyway.

    More than likely, his opponent will not be given a dime from the GOP establishment for the election in 2014.

    Again, liberals should be dancing in the streets about this.

    So the Tea Party does not care for Obama cause he is black and they don't care for Cantor cause he is a Jew.

    Got it!!

    Thanks for that.

    I'm sitting here listening to Mark Levin, a conservative Jew, celebrate the loss of Cantor. Maybe he hates himself because he is a Jew.

    I give up.

    Screw the Republican party. They're going to choke away their chance to win the Senate again because of the knuckle-dragging single digit IQ wing who thinks that anyone who cooperates with a Democrat is a blood traitor. (I know that Cantor is in the House, but they'll probably make similar dumb plays in the Senate.)

    I need a 3rd party to support.

    Tell me about the Greens, No1.

    Well, okay, probably not.

    Join the club. I don't have a party either.

    It's just nice to see one corrupt party begin to fall apart. I think it has a lot to do with the hypocrisy within the GOP. Liberals are proud when they increase the size and scope of government while the GOP tries to pretend to hate it.

    I await a Hillary win for two terms. That should bring more conservatives into the fold.

    I love it when a GOP establishment type takes it on the chin.

    Never before has the GOP leadership been this weak in the entire history of the US.

    This type of win has never been accomplished in US Congressional history.

    Screw the establishment, both the D and the R variety.

    Please, don't give up. It was a series of GOP missteps that led to Obama's rise to power in 2008, and it will be a series of Democratic missteps that will lead to the reemergence of the GOP. It was that way before either of us were born, and it will be that way long after we're gone. The GOP will emerge from this situation stronger, more united (and I suspect a little more moderate), as Nietzsche once said: "Out of chaos come order"
