Im late to this story but Mickey Kaus and David Steinberg are all over it. You know the background here: Eric Cantor, whos been on the outs with House conservatives lately and whos championed immigration reform for DREAMers for more than a year, is suddenly facing a surprisingly tough primary challenge in Virginia from Dave Brat, whos attacked him for being soft on amnesty. How tough? Tough enough that Cantor recently ran away from Jeff Denhams ENLIST Act for DREAMers despite having expressed support for it before. Tough enough that hes now aired not one but two ads in his district attacking Brat by name, something a well-known incumbent is naturally loath to do against a little-known challenger unless he fears hes in trouble. Tough enough, even, that Cantors team sent out a mass mailer to voters celebrating him as a, er stalwart amnesty opponent.
Coincidentally, Democrat Luis Gutierrez, the Houses most vocal immigration champion, decided that today would be a perfect time to visit Virginia and protest Cantor for being such a hard-ass on amnesty. Which is funny because, as both Kaus and Steinberg note, Cantor and Gutierrez were part of a House delegation that toured America for three days last year to celebrate ta da immigration. They are, in other words, both committed to this cause. And if the cause requires them to pretend to be enemies temporarily in the name of protecting Cantors seat, so be it. Kaus knows kabuki when he sees it:

They are called the Ruling Class for a reason. Washington is an incestuous relationship for the purpose of growing the Federal Beast and imposing their will on the rest of those they think they rule.
This is why I cannot stand those who lecture us that it is better to vote for someone with an “R” after their name than someone with a “D” after it.
Even when it can be demonstrated that the GOP Establishment supports and aids the Obama agenda while the MarxoFascists support and aid the Establishment GOP to further the same agenda.
LOL if you need that slime ball Gutierrez to help you get elected, you don’t deserve your seat.
Not only is Cantor a RINO, he is a flat out liar just like a democrat.
Get rid of this hack in the primary.
This is the way it’s going to work from here on out, and more of it.
Nancy Pelosi is behind it and doing the same for hapless rogue Boehner, a stranger now to small government and sovereignty.
It’s decent politics as strategies go, of course, and it needs to flow BOTH WAYS.
So. What Democrat can we work to keep considering his opponent would be dangerously worse for us?
