So last night, while our President tried to explain everything that sucks right now to America and her idiot press, House Republican Whip Eric Cantor went to a Britney Spears concert.

It's true! He even confirmed it, to a blog. In a really evasive, roundabout way:

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 Senator Landrieu and other Democrats.

Yes, Eric, we've all been to the Verizon Center, but not to watch emotionally damaged manic-depressives dance in their lingerie for our amusement! We saw Bruce and the E Street Band.

(Also his office later had to retract the bit about Mary Landrieu.)
