Laura was relentless in going after Eric Cantor over immigration, oops, amnesty. Cantor tried to have it both ways, claiming he was a champion in the fight against amnesty when, in fact, he was right at the heart of the Chamber of Commerce's argument which has led to the debacle we are currently facing at the border. Cantor even went so far as to try and call Dave Brat a liberal because he was a college professor. He also tried to whitewash what he had been doing by sending out a ridiculous mailer clearly lying about his own positions. He was truly an example of why we need term limits.
Jonathan Karl tried to create a stir on ABC while interviewing Cantor after his defeat, asking him about Laura's sarcastic comment that we could use Cantor as a trade with the Taliban. Cantor flashed just a bit of anger when he said that her comment was over the top and that it wasn't worthy of the good people in the Tea Party who didn't like such talk.
Really, Eric, I'm a Tea Party supporter and while I knew it was clearly not serious I thought it was a hoot. Many I know felt the same way. Laura was just making a point about the poor taste of your approach to the man who defeated you. You really do need to get a life; you should have just laughed it off or do you just take yourself too seriously?
If you can't take the heat, get out of the frying pan. Better still, since you've now been taken down from membership in the DC power structure, just go home quietly and be done with it.
Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin were the two talk show folks who went to bat for Dave Brat when all of the others walked around the edge. Both of them are frequently accused of being harsh when, in fact, they are merely speaking truth to power and the power brokers clearly don't like being challenged. I say this: if you are in politics and you think your arrogance is the answer for America, forget about it. Americans want truth, not sound bites and non-answers and it's folks like Ingraham and Levin who seek it out day by day.
So thanks, Laura, for sticking to your convictions and keep it up. I look forward to your program every morning on the radio and appreciate you sticking up for us, the "great unwashed masses of flyover America" who have to pay the bills for the mess that Washington continues to create. As a minimum you give us hope but, when the wind blows strong to the right, you help to give us a great victory like that achieved by Dave Brat. Never, ever let the Washington elites get you down, we've got your back.
