Has a politician ever fallen faster than Eric Cantor, who has turned into a body in the Republican morgue in less than 48 hours?
I’m not trying to start a political discussion here – rather more of a historical one. Cantor went from a position of great importance to roadkill very, very quickly. And it was because of politics.
I can think of a couple politicians who turned into dirt pretty quickly -
Andrew Weiner and his text messages
the Congressman caught in the airport bathroom trolling for gat sex
Eliot Spitzer and his affair while governor
and even Bill Clinton
but none of those guys fell so far so fast.
Isn’t politics fun?
