You can thank Eric Cantor, deputy GOP whip in the House, for this. The quality’s shoddy and it’s a strange, strange issue to try this experiment with, but I like the fact that he’s willing to play it light and leverage the web to move messages. Not the first time he’s done that, either. If the Dems win big next year and the long-awaited rightroots explosion occurs as part of the inevitable GOP backlash, Cantor will probably be a prominent liaison between the Hill and the blogosphere. Patrick Ruffini’s already touting him for the Senate. Won’t happen (this time), but it’s worth striking the friendship now. Click the image to watch.
