Eric Cantor announced in a newspaper interview yesterday that he is going to resign from the House on August 18th. He is calling on Governor McAuliffe to hold a special election at the same time as the general election to fill his seat, giving his successor seniority over every other new Congressman elected this November.

Don’t do it, Governor.

After losing his primary, Cantor said he was going to complete his term. Either he lied or someone explained to him that resigning would make the new, likely Republican, Representative from Virginia more likely to get plum Committee seats. Cantor says he wants to make sure that Virginia is represented in the lame duck session by having the new Representative start on November 5th. If Cantor truly wanted Virginia to be represented by a senior Congressmen during that session, he can stay where he is instead of going back on his word and pulling a Palin.

Holy shit, Eric Cantor just lost his primary! Cantor is about as conservative as it gets, but he crossed the Teahadists when he came out in favor of immigration reform. They were able to find a nobody college professor with no money to put up against Cantor and Cantor lost. He lost badly and the Teahadists are raping his corpse.

If Cantor isn’t pure enough, there is no hope for the Republican Party.
