Eric Cantor (R), the supposed next Speaker of the House, lost his re-election bid tonight in Virginia to a an even more extremist candidate, Tea Partier, David Brat.

Per the chatter on the MSN (which I take with a grain of sale), I’m hearing that Brat defeated Cantor because of Cantor’s willingness to entertain the notion of amnesty for immigrants.  I’m also hearing that, because of this result, any kind of immigration reform before the 2016 election is dead because Republicans are now scared shitless.

A time will come when Republicans can’t win without the Latino vote.  But hating on “illegals” is a central part of their message and it brings their voters to the polls, as in what happened today in Virginia.

So what do they do?

They’ve created a monster.
