Eric Cantor may not be a Jackass

HEARTLESS: As Cantor's tornado comments show, that's the word for today's Republicans | Crooks and Liars:
"House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Monday that if Congress passes an emergency spending bill to help Missouri’s tornado victims, the extra money will have to be cut from somewhere else.

But he sure says the kinds of things that one would say.

“If there is support for a supplemental, it would be accompanied by support for having pay-fors to that supplemental,” Mr. Cantor, Virginia Republican, told reporters at the Capitol. The term “pay-fors” is used by lawmakers to signal cuts or tax increases used to pay for new spending."
