What A Wuss

Congressman Eric Cantor took to the stage to respond to the threats to Democratic lawmakers and said that his office was fired on. Alas he never expected that there were going to be forensics involved: Richmond Police Detail Shooting Of Cantor’s Office.

The short version – some whacko fired a gun into the air and gravity took it to an empty meeting room in the building where Cantor’s office is located. The bullet broke the glass, but was deflected to the floor by the miniblinds.

Of course, as a Congresscritter, Mr. Cantor could introduce a bill to make it a Federal felony to shoot into the air, and then he would have something to worry about.

Bye Bye, Bibi

Ha’aretz reports: Netanyahu leaves U.S. disgraced, isolated and weaker.

Bibi can’t control his foreign minister; his interior minister was the one who actually insulted Joe Biden; his brother-in-law called Obama anti-Semitic; and the city government in Jerusalem torpedoed his emergency trip to mend fences with the US.

Netanyahu is not in charge of his government, and everyone can see it. The Palestinians can truthfully say there is no one in Israel to negotiate with, so there is no point in talking.

From the US point of view, Israel has twice insulted the current administration and refuses to honor its previous commitments.

Bibi should just call an election and bow out. He isn’t even getting respect from his own coalition partners.
