Eric Cantor Dumber Than a Rock!

Today, Eric Cantor [R-Va.] (House Majority Leader) reveals he knows nothing about how a bill becomes a law. He said in a press statement (with Speaker Boehner standing beside him):

if the Senate fails to pass a measure before April 6, 2011 providing for the appropriations of the departments and agencies of the Government for the remainder of fiscal year 2011, H.R. 1 (as passed by the House on February 19, 2011) becomes law.

Maybe he is not dumber than a rock, and he is just confused or even forgot. Maybe he is demonstrating to us exactly why we should not cut education spending. Or then again, maybe he is just another Tea-Party idiot, who knows how to be a very good corporate "yes-man" and just do as he's told.

I would say he probably feels like an idiot but sadly I think I would be wrong. And besides I'm sure Fox News and Glenn Beck are already planning to spin this and make their viewers/listeners believe somehow he didn't say what he said or what he said was taken out of context and it was Obama's fault.

However, what is most alarming is the fact no one has called out him on his ignorance. I must agree with Lawrence O'Donnell on this. Why is it we allow the Republican / Tea Party Politicians to be the most ignorant, birdbrained dumb-asses and not call them out repeatedly on their stupidity and utter ignorance on almost every issue? It's like we have grown accustomed to them being uninformed douche-bags. I need more than two hands now to count the number of these morons.
