Just spank me when they've gone so I can come out.Terminally panicky villain-child Eric Cantor was all set to deliver a speech on “income inequality” and its many virtues to what he thought would be a carefully selected audience of approvingly docile business students at the Wharton School, but at the last minute university officials reminded Cantor’s office that the event would be open to the public. Cantor immediately cancelled his address in response, out of a rank fear that the cesspool of unemployed and low-wage commoners and Occupy Philadelphia protesters might turn up to ask a few questions about his Plan for Their Future (Guantanamo).

From the Philadelphia Daily News:

U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, the Republican majority leader in the U.S. House, canceled his scheduled speech at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business because if was going to be open to the first 300 people who showed up.  Given that hundreds of Occupy Philadelphia protesters were planning to march from City Hall to the campus to protest the speech, that could have been lively audience.

“The Office of the Majority Leader was informed last night by Capitol Police that the University of Pennsylvania was unable to ensure that the attendance policy previously agreed to could be met,” Cantor spokeswoman Laena Fallon said in an email. “Wharton is a educational leader in innovation and entrepreneurship, and the Majority Leader appreciated the invitation to speak with the students, faculty, alumni, and other members of the UPenn community.”

Oh, what a wuss. Here he probably thinks that the protesters want to eat him alive. Won’t happen! Because nobody actually likes the taste of rat feces. [Philadelphia Daily News]

    Eric Cantor is the cry-baby younger brother that got beat up once a week whether he deserved it or not.

    • UnholyMoses

      Oh … he deserved it. And probably more than once a week.

      (This is not to be confused with actual bullying, in which someone gets beat up without deserving it. That shit sucks.)

      • GOPCrusher

        Oh yes. Eric is the proto-typical sniveling little shit that used to snitch to the teacher about everything that occurred on the playground. Probably used to volunteer to be hall monitor.
        And couldn't understand why he went home every night with a bloody nose, underwear up around his armpits, and sand burrs in his hair.

      • Barb

        Oh, I went to Vegas. I took the tram from MGM Grand to Harrah's and then walked over to the Venetian, saw the CNN truck and I did misbehave. I had a pretty good time and won some money.

        • ShaveTheWhales

          I thought about trying to make a gerbil joke, but no…

          Sorry to hear about your little medical inconvenience. Needing to have a piece of yourself removed is a real bummer, and, I daresay, kinda scary. Best wishes for a smooth procedure and a speedy recovery.

    Eric Cantor? I HATE THAT FUCKING CUNT FUCK FUCK HEAD SHIT FOR BRANS CHICKEN PISS LUMPY DICK WHORE ASS FUCK!!!! And imagine what I'd say about him if I was in a bad mood.

    • GregComlish

      man, peeps got to stop calling bad people names like "cunts". And this isn't a feminist objection per se, it's just that I love cunts. I love ass. I love fucking. I love fucking ass and cunts with my dick.

      I'm not into shit though, so feel free to use that one on Cantor

      • baconzgood

        You're right. I should watch my god damn language cause there's bitches on this fucking site. It's not like I'm in the cock sucking navy.

        • I dunno, how can you tell who's the fucking bitchez and who ain't? Because, except for Barb, who is pretty much always a lady, everybody else here swears worse than I do, which is saying plenty.

      • Calling a person a cunt is fine, just so long as we all remember what wonderful, tasty little things cunts can be. You know, distinguish between the two. As in Eric Cantor is a CUNT, but "my wife's cunt is the tastiest thing since bread." or something.

    • Excellent. Classic Baconz.

    • It's nice to see you so happy and well, baconz.

    • GorzoTheMighty

      Baconz, friend, comrade and unindicted co-conspirator. Don't hold back. Tell us what you really feel. We are all friends here. This is not the time for repressed feelings.This could be your breakthrough moment!

    Empowered Coward.

    Typical rightie.

  • he also claimed his office was shot at, but it wasn't? correct? Cantor quakes for Quakers.

    • Yeah, somehow a brick in his wall got nicked and he cried and shivered in terror, wetting his pants over fantasies that the mean lib'rulz were coming to get him. Meanwhile, Raul Grijalva's office actually was broken into, robbed, and set on fire, while Gabby Giffords ended up with a bullet in her brain, but none of THAT is important, you know, because it didn't happen to HIS wussy chicken ass.

      • Jukesgrrl

        And Arizona isn't a state. It's kinda like Puerto Rico.

        • Hey hey, what has Puerto Rico done to you to deserve such opprobrium?

        • Biel_ze_Bubba

          I thought Arizona was all about NOT becoming kinda like Puerto Rico. Their loss, I know, but that is what they're about.

          • Jukesgrrl

            Good point.Is there a territory filled with only white people?Maine?

      • Actually, it was a building that Cantor's campaign (and others) did business with. Which makes it even more pathetic to cry about.

  • WordsOfWiesman

    In his defense, when Eric Cantor decided to craft a speech to address the concerns of the 99%, he had no idea that any of those 99% would actually attend.

    • Dashboard_Jesus

      nice one, hope your p-ness rises substantially with this!

  • Bravely bold E Cantor
    Rode forth from Washington.
    He was not afraid to lie,
    Oh brave E Cantor.
    He was not at all afraid
    To face protests about his nasty ways.
    Brave, brave, brave, brave E Cantor

    Brave E. Cantor ran away. ("No!")
    Bravely ran away away. ("I didn't!")
    When protest reared it's ugly head, He bravely turned his tail and fled. ("no!")
    Yes, brave E Cantor turned about ("I didn't!")
    And gallantly he chickened out. ****Bravely**** taking ("I never did!")
    to his feet, He beat a very brave retreat. ("all lies!")
    Bravest of the braaaave, E Cantor! ("I never!")

      Cain, maybe, but his answers are so convoluted that no one dares ask a follow up.

      • terriblyfamous

        He's not afraid of questions because he generally doesn't understand the questions. Probably thinks he's hitting them all out of the park.

    • Not_So_Much

      Walnuts maybe. But only because he just thinks its more kids on his lawn and another opportunity to turn purple and shake his fist in the air at them.

    • I haven't heard of one. They're all cowards.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Judging by how they are treated by fellow Republicans in their "debates," I can imagine why they are afraid of non-Republicans.

      • C'mon, Eddie's WAY handsomer. Eric looks like one of those loathsome kids who went to schul because his Mommy MADE him and he spent the whole time there picking his nose and smearing his boogers all over everything.

    OT Barb,
    How did your granddaughter make out with her ladybug costume?

    • Barb

      Honestly, I don't know. Something horrible happened last week and I've been hiding from the world and not speaking to anyone until I can fix it. Two tumors and I'm going to lose my beloved uterus, "Miss Mookie" in the process. I'm going through the 7 stages of Uber-bitch right now.

      • nounverb911

        I'm truly sorry to hear this, I hope you have a real speedy recovery.

      • baconzgood

        Ohhhh no! My niece just went through the same thing. I'm very sorry to hear that.

      • SorosBot

        Ouch; I really hope you get better soon.

        • Barb

          Thanks BITCHES! You really know how to make a Mookie feel better.
          My doctor called while I was in Vegas and said my blood sugar levels were off the chart. I can't drink booze and I had to throw a box of Twinkies out.
          I have to have an ultrasound on Tuesday. I'm hoping that a miracle happens and they discover that it's just two kittens that God wanted me to have in some sort of immaculate conception.

          • Geminisunmars

            Almost 3 years ago I retired my sweet organ. Wonkette helped me through it. Get the laser laproscopic if that is possible. Healing time MUCH quickker & easier. And my best wishes.

            And that's really awful about the twinkies.

          • tessiee

            "the laser laproscopic"

            To get rid of those troublesome lady parts AND have 20-20 vision?

          • Geminisunmars

            Oh. That's why I don't need glasses any more.

          • LesBontemps

            So sorry Barb, especially about the booze & Twinkies. Hoping for kittens, but if not, speedy recovery. (I assume they let you snark from the hospital, right?)

          • Barb

            You guys are awesome, thanks!
            I went to Costco and got a huge box of Cheerios. What do you do with those things anyway? The box showed them in a bowl with milk or something. I remember my BFF, Bill telling me that he used Cheerios in the toilet to help potty train his kid, kinda give him something to aim for.

            I'll live with all those doctors, seeing my zorch without taking me to Red Lobster first, I'll eat the toilet cereal to try to be healthier and I will sober up. What I can't give up is you guys. You complete me! LOL Bitches!

          • AJWjr.

            Though you probably don't want any of us working on your lady parts. Get better.

            Although, to be fair, they do dope you up real good beforehand. Bottomless and semi-conscious with two hot guys? Best Spring Break evah!

            Hope it goes fine and you recover quickly, tho.

          • You'll be okay, Barb. If Miss Mookie the uterus has to go, they'll install a woomba. Much more sanitary.

            Just remember: there is no "I" in uterus.

          • Barb

            Woomba, it keeps my lady business clean.

          • Fare la Volpe

            Aww, Barb, I'm so sorry to hear that. There are times in life where we gotta do some serious self-care, which in this case is getting that procedure done as soon as possible. One of my mother's friends had her own Mookie removed and was she ever-thankful they caught it early. We're all pulling for you, darlin'! Please keep us updated.

          • Biel_ze_Bubba

            Take care of it ASAP — we'll gladly cancel your appointment.

    Considering his commitment to increasing the number of destitute peasants in America, you'd think he'd proudly greet a few of his "children" instead of scuttling back to his secure compound.
    Cantor is giving off a very Dr. Frankenstein vibe here.

  • SorosBot

    It's Wharton, which is filled with a bunch of smug entitled young pricks who think they're better than everyone else and a lot smarter than they really are who will be shortly joining the big banks and financial firms that destroyed the American economy, so you see why Cantor would assume he'd get a sympathetic audience there.

  • CapnFatback

    “The Office of the Majority Leader was informed last night by Capitol Police that the University of Pennsylvania was unable to ensure that the attendance policy previously agreed to could be met,” Cantor spokeswoman Laena Fallon said in an email.

    There's the problem right there. Cantor should remember that there is no attendance policy in university lecture classes. You're absent at your own risk, which you often realize after you've failed the test.

    And failing the test is something Cantor does know about–too well.

      PolitiFact will show that Cantor actually dId speak at Wharton. Maybe it'll've been five years ago, maybe it was just stopping at a Starbucks on the UPENN campus, but if EC has ever been to PENN, or even just a college campus in Pennsylvania, and wasn't mute, his appearance at Wharton, in the present-day, will be rated True.

        On the East Coast stands the Statue of Liberty, but on the West Coast…should stand a Statue of Responsibility. In my vision, when these two statutes join hands, the American people create a bridge that spans the whole country – a bridge of opportunity. And on the pillars of that bridge, we must erect our ladders with those who are successful extending their hands to those who wish to climb.

        Shorter Eric Cantor: "My vision for America is both retarded and gay!"

        • CapnFatback

          I recognize this! Once you pass the Statues of Liberty and Responsibility, you must take care around the Unwashed Trolls who stand a mirthless vigil at the Bridge of Opportunity. Should you avoid the trolls, the Pillars of Erected Ladders hold numerous treasures of rubies and mithril armor, which makes for an important defense for when you fight the Dragon of Mooching. Defeat the dragon, and you've helped Link rescue the Princess!

      I've said this for years: there is nothing funny about the Big C.

      • Extemporanus

        Nothing funny?

        I would've thought that you, of all people, treated it as more of a Gy area.

        • RadioOcupados

          I can see right through your curieous attempt at humor.

            That anemic response really isn't something to Bragg about.

    Eating rat feces? If it's fresh, that would be a step up from the rancid BS his ilk have been feeding the commoners. Besides, if that's all it takes to take him out, excuse me while I whip out my bib and some bbq sauce.

        I used to live next door to an apartment building that had a basketball hoop in the parking lot. There was this one kid, I guess about 8 years old, who used to hang around, but the big boys wouldn't let him play. One day he got frustrated and yelled at them, "BITCH CHICKEN!!"

        I don't know where that kid is now, or whether he ever got to play, but I do know one thing: Eric Cantor is a bitch chicken.

        • I think I shall yell that randomly at the next teabagger I see. Thank you for the addition to my vocabulary.

    • You could have just used "Republican" and saved some typing.

  • Guppy

    You mean to say that the speech of a member of Congress at a public university would be open to the public? My goodness!

    • proudgrampa

      What a concept!

    • You have to remember: Cantor's hometown of Richmond, VA is still segregated in important ways. They freaked out over a statue honoring harmless tennis guy Arthur Ashe of all people.

      • YouBetcha

        Um, I don't know if you've noticed, but Arthur Ashe was BLACK. I'm pretty sure he was from Kenya. Plus, he had THE AIDZ, which of course, means ghey, also too. You really can't blame the fine people of Richmond.

        • Jukesgrrl

          But it looks like they did take the very best, since little of merit seems to have been left behind.

      • It wasn't as much about the statue as it was about the fact that it was to be erected on Monument Avenue alongside statues of great Confederate heroes like Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and I forget the other two or three idiots who have statues up there. Richmond is proud of its colored sons so long as they remember their place, and that extends to statues of them.

        Heh heh, I said "erected."

        • horsedreamer_1

          The most fitting statuary for what Richmond is would be a GWAR monument.

    • SorosBot

      It is a private university, but yeah events like this are still usually open to the public.

      • emmelemm

        Isn't Wharton Business School part of the University of Pennsylvania, thus public?

        • SorosBot

          It's part of the University of Pennsylvania, but UPenn is a private university, even though the name sounds like it's public; Pennsylvania's public colleges and universities fall under the Penn State umbrella.

          • emmelemm

            The More You Know! {shooting star}

            I knew UPenn was one of the Ivies, and I thought it was the only "public" one. But clearly I'm misinformed. Don't worry, it doesn't hurt a bit.

          • Jukesgrrl

            Only some of them. Don't tell anyone from Pitt they fall under the Penn State umbrella if you want to go home with your head.

          • Callyson

      Paul Ryan would charge for the privilege of admission to hear him trickle down.

    So the tactic of disrupting the town hall meetings of congressional Democrats that his side employed throughout 2009-2010 has, albeit belatedly and insufficiently, come back to bite Eric Cantor on his scrawny little ass. There is some justice under the sun, it would seem.

    • DahBoner

  • magic_titty

    Hordes of people actually wanting to hear what he had to say was understandably unsettling for him.

  • LiveToServeYa

    He obviously doesn't have the courage of his convictions, even though he should be convicted many times.

  • DahBoner

    Yeah, I saw the Powerpoint presentation he had planned. There was only one slide that said:

    More Income Inequality = More $$$$ for Us

    …All the shit you given us is fertilizer
    The seeds that we planted you can brutalize them
    Tell the corporation you can never globalize you
    Like Peter Toss said Legalize It
    Girls and boys hear the bass and treble
    Rumble in the speakers and it make you wanna rebel
    Throw your hands up, take it to another level
    And you can never, ever, ever make a deal with the devil…

    Brave Sir Eric Cantor doesn't even employ a live person at his office in DC. I just called and left a message, and yes, I was laughing.

    • Good for you. I will call his office tomorrow. I hope everyone here will consider giving that worthless cocksucking pigfucker a piece of their mind.

      • onemoretime79

        Your point is well taken. I appreciate the time honored & honest approach of saying something to a public representative's assistant directly. (Rarely do they answer their own damn phones.) So when I have something to say I feel the better path is to call up b/c, it is after all, as close as I can get in person. And it is definitely one way to let our representatives know, there are real people associated with real thoughts that are really affected by their narrow-minded and purile decisions.

        Yet as I stated earlier – I couldn't stop laughing long enough to get angry enough to list the reasons why I find it ludicrous that the majority whip is either too afraid or too cheap, to have (even) his subordinates answer his motherfucking phone.

        Where I come from, that is beyond pathetic.

        And where I come from, laughing at someone will be viewed as a much larger insult than, say, signing an online petition. May his phone message taker get a laugh through the gut, at the one I left and they recorded. Eh?

      I don't think Wharton grads are actually unemployed — they're just making $500,000 a year instead of the $5 million with bonuses they were promised, according to that douche in the Wall Street Journal who hands out $1 tips.

  • Callyson

    NoCandor's idiotic speech, fixed:
    Instead of talking about a fair share or spending time trying to push those at the top even higher above everyone else, elected leaders in Washington should be trying to ensure that everyone has a fair shot and the opportunity to earn success up the ladder. The goal shouldn’t be for 99% to meet at the bottom of the ladder. We should want all people to be moving up and no one to be pulled down. How do we do that? It cannot simply be about wealth redistribution. You don’t just cut more taxes for the guy at the top to cut away even more from the guy at the bottom and expect our problems to be solved.

    Dude has got to see the writing on the wall. He thought the tea party would catapult him into the Speaker's chair, when all it did was make sure this is the highest position he'll ever hold in Congress for the rest of his miserable little life. Reap what you sow you weasly motherfucker; reap what you sow.

    • My friend, you are so intelligent and so wise, and yet you assume that this monumentally stupid piece of ambulatory pooterjuice thinks and feels as you do.

      He does not. If he's getting nervous at all, it's because the KochBros wingtips are pressed down on his balls. He hasn't the wit or the wisdom to see the foolishness and the dangerous level of insult that his speech would constitute. Like the aristos of France, he will assume until he is pulled from the tumbril that the Forces of Law and Order are permanently on his side, and will rescue him from the filthy sansculottes now swarming the streets.

    To be fair, Eric Cantor's ideology has been shaped by his personal struggles, like the time he had to work as a marketing consultant for a company his family owned.
