Say whaaatt?? According to The New Yorker, Eric Cantor's wife is a liberal democrat

<snip>

Late in the afternoon on the second day of the retreat, Cantor and his wife, Diana, who happens to be a liberal Democrat, met me for coffee at the Trellis restaurant, in Williamsburg. Cantor, who is forty-nine, is slight and speaks in a nasal Southern drawl. When cameras are around, he has a tendency to look frozen, as if hed just been caught doing something wrong; his smile can look like a snarl. Hes more genial in person.

1. I remember reading about that about a year ago.

She's for marriage equality and women's choice and is said to be a lifelong Dem.

I fail to see how to people working toward such different goals could be compatible as life partners, but that's just me.

5. perhaps otherwise she is one of those

fiscal conservatives

and thus despises working people just as much as Cantor (or Obama)

3. He clearly does not deserve her.

And she sure as hell doesn't deserve to be stuck with him!

4. Why not? Do you think a wife must agree with her husband on everything?

13. Let me rephrase; I have trouble imagining being able to be married to someone with whom

I would have such a clear and obvious set of deep philosophical differences.

I don't "need" to agree with my wife on everything, certainly not politics, but we share a core set of values.

Eric Cantor, at least based upon how he acts in congress, is far away from those values.

17. I don't even watch or listen to Eric Cantor any more

I have got him on the Big Ignore. And when he unexpectedly appears on my screen, I turn him off. When he appears on any political commentary show I am watching, I switch stations. I am starting to do this with just about all Republicans because I don't want help their numbers.

9. I think holding two completely different philosophies

within a marriage is strange- at the least. This isn't about liking football or not liking it.

Eric Cantor's views on humanity, compassion, fairness, etc, are diametrically opposed to the beliefs of liberals.

12. A lot of people have weddings like that.

I know conservatives who are great people and liberals who are perfect jerks.

7. Most tea party people are male. Which is why Texas will soon be blue.

 

In the comfort of the voting booth, people are free to not vote the way their spouse does

11. The public square, the exchange of political ideas is so important to me that I could have

sex with a republican but I would never marry a republican. Especially in this increasingly toxic atmosphere that surrounds the media about politics.

16. I always felt that they both are putting us all on

and laughing all the way to the bank.

After all, neither has ever stood for election.

it's all a show.

15. So in other words, his nasty disposition and attitudes are due to lack of sex.

 

It's a common GOP problem, but it's compounded by having a liberal wife.
