GOP Whip Chooses Britney over Obama

If you had to choose between a Britney Spears concert and yet another night watching President Obama, wouldn’t you opt for a little dancing? That’s what Rep. Eric Cantor evidently decided. Instead of tuning in to Obama’s press conference last night after attending a National Republican Congressional Committee fundraiser, the House Republican whip headed over to Spears’ “Circus” show at the D.C. Verizon Center with a bipartisan group of legislators, Wonkette reports. Cantor’s office said in a statement: “After attending the NRCC dinner, Eric, like President Obama has been known to do, enjoyed a night at the Verizon center. It was a bipartisan night, as Eric was joined by…Democrats.” “Obviously,” snarks Wonkette, “the scandal here is that Eric Cantor is friends with socialists.”
