Hahahahahaha-"Every Republican is Crucial"
I was under the impression that Eric Cantor wanted to aid in creating a more bipartisan Congress, since he uses the word as much as possible lately. I mean, I get it; Cantor is worried about his job, as well he should be, since he is Bush's latest super-ally and lapdog since former Senator George Allen.
But it appears I was wrong. Cantor has named his pac after himself, with a "nifty" little acronym:
About 215 returning lawmakers reported having leadership PACs in the 2006 election cycle. The 298 leadership PACs that were active in 2006 raised about $156 million and doled out roughly $53 million to other federal candidates, two thirds of which went to Republicans, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor's "Every Republican is Crucial" (or ERIC) PAC contributed the most to other lawmakers that cycle, giving about $1.2 million. In addition to being a mechanism for donating to other candidates, leadership PACs can fund their controlling member's travel-often to raise money-and boost the politician's profile beyond his or her district or state.Ha, what a joke. It is certainly not as funny as this, but still pretty hilarious. He really loves himself, doesn't he? In my opinion, he probably should have saved some of that money. If things continue the way they are going, Cantor's approval ratings will be in the toilet, right next to Bush's approval ratings.
