Really, John Boehner?

In what can only be interpreted as a smack in Eric Cantor's face, John Boehner will campaign alongside Rich Iott, Nazi re-enactor. Not only will he campaign alongside him, he's funneled more cash to Iott's campaign than previously reported. The

In what can only be interpreted as a smack in Eric Cantor's face, John Boehner will campaign alongside Rich Iott, Nazi re-enactor. Not only will he campaign alongside him, he's funneled more cash to Iott's campaign than previously reported.

The DCCC had some choice comments to make about it:

Not only has John Boehner recruited, embraced, and financed a disgraced Nazi enthusiast running for Congress, but now Boehner is pouring gasoline on the fire by throwing a campaign rally for him," said DCCC spokesman Ryan Rudominer. "Thumbing his nose at our nation's veterans, women, and people of the Jewish faith, all the while refusing to stand up for basic American values in order to try and win an election, apparently this is what Boehner meant when he said, 'We're not going to be any different than what we've been.

Taking out the hyperbole that tends to dominate the final week of any election cycle for a minute, I just have to sit back and wonder about how it can be that Republicans are so confident about sewing up the House majority. If they really think they've got it in the bag, why send the future Speaker of the House on the campaign trail with a guy who thinks SS officers were interesting enough that he spent his weekends pretending he was one?

Hmmm. Things to ponder.
