And if you don't like their principles, well, they've got others.

OK, this is just downright funny:

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) appeared yesterday at a health care reform discussion hosted by the Richmond Times-Dispatch. As the newspaper reported, constituents "listened without booing" and "left in an orderly fashion -- without shouting, fighting or the escort of law enforcement." What a refreshing change of pace.

No, no, not the part that shows how folks can attend a Republican town hall without becoming violent. The next part:

As Think Progress pointed out, there was only one glitch: Cantor told a woman whose uninsured relative needs a tumor operation that she ought to look into "an existing government program" or seek charity to pay for the operation. Way to stick to conservative principles.

The lack of self-awareness is truly mind-numbing, isn't it?
