THE GOP – THEIR “GOOSE IS COOKED” – ERIC CANTOR – #2 HOUSE GUY – LOSES BY 56% TO 44% TO TEA PARTY CHALLENGER! GOP = “GET-OUT-OF-THE-POTOMAC” PARTY!

.

.
In an absolutely stunning loss yesterday, the number two House Republican (Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor VA) lost to a Tea Party challenger, David Brat, an economics professor and political novice who runs a libertarian-funded program at Randolph-Macon College in Virginia.
.
But, what should really inspire raw, naked fear within the GOP establishment is this stark fact:  while Eric Cantor amassed $5.4 million in campaign cash, his Tea Party challenger, Brat, raised a mere $200,000 and yet still managed to best Cantor by 12 percentage points – 56%-44% in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.
.
It should be fairly obvious, BY NOW, that the GOP  is outright INFESTED with Tea Party adherents who constitute the very fabric of the GOP itself and the GOP finds itself in a stage 4 cancer condition.  The party’s elders dismissal of the Tea Party last week after a few GOP mainstream candidate primary successes was put in perspective by a Democratic lawmaker:
.

“[A]ll the pundits declaring the establishment’s victory over the tea party was premature ejaculation

 .
What this actually means, in this blogger’s humble opinion, is that House Leader John Boehner (Rep.) will be leader in name only and has been virtually stripped of his powers to control his own caucus, much less the House as a whole.  He can now just be a total asshole and just win his own re-election in Ohio in November and then hunker down until 2016 only to see the GOP  suffer yet another defeat in their futile quest for the White House.
.
But, that is really hot an option.  Boehner will be pushed aside before that, either by the Tea Party contingent or he will simply retire and take a lucrative job as a Washington lobbyist.  Then again, perhaps he will make some accommodation with Democratic Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, to actually enact some meaningful legislation and merely tread water until the tide turns back in his favor.
.
But, the reality is, John Boehner doesn’t have a clue, anymore than you or I do, as to what will actually take place between now and November 2014 or November 2016.  All that can be said for now is that the GOP has long since worn out its welcome among the voting electorate, save the Angry White Guys, and as I have been repeatedly saying for a long time now, the GOP is on its way out the door as a national party with any  national relevance.  It may remain as an “organization” but that is not the same as a relevant, major political force.
.
The GOP is now the “Get Out of the Potomac” Party!
