Quote of the Day

"I have criticized members of my own party for making [President Obama's birth certificate] some kind of an issue and so I'm really surprised that the White House is actually doing the same. We've got a lot of things swirling right now—you've got gas prices over four dollars a gallon, you've got over fourteen trillion dollars in debt in this country we're trying to deal with, you've got unemployment that's still stuck up around nine percent. How in the world is this now the issue we ought to be focusing on? … There are much more important issues for us to be dealing with, obviously."—House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Eprehensible).


I can't believe he got through that with a straight fucking face.
