Do you agree with Eric Cantor about Jews?

The Wall Street Journal reported last weekend on its lengthy interview with House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA), who the Journal noted “would be the next majority leader — the second most powerful post in that chamber behind the speaker” if the GOP wins control of the House this November. But during the interview, which was conducted by the paper’s conservative columnist Steve Moore, Cantor made a startling admission:

Mr. Cantor is the only Jewish Republican in the House and Senate (there are more than 40 Jewish Democrats), and we discuss why. “First of all,” he laughs, “I’m looking for some company in Randy Altschuler,” who is running in the first congressional district of New York. “Randy’s looking good in his race, so we are hoping to double the Jewish Republican caucus.”

  • Mr. Cantor believes the American-Jewish community is overwhelmingly Democratic because Jews “are prone to want to help the underdog.”

  • A startling admission...? I would be inclined to think it's a little more "tongue in cheek" humor.
