Eric Cantor's "stunning" loss to Tea Partier David Brat really is not all that stunning. After the 2010 census, Cantor's dependably Republican district was further gerrymandered to make it even more Republican and more conservative. For Cantor, that may have backfired.
Brat's campaign issue was immigration, where Cantor had let a tiny glimpse of light shine through between his position and the brick wall of the hardest of the hard right. "We all don't care much for furriners in these parts."
Well, then tell me, Jim Bob: how do you feel about the Jeeeeewwwwwws?
