Why would anyone believe a single word out of Eric Cantor's mouth? When I heard that he announced a shot had been fired through his campaign office window, my very first thought was "No way!" Why wouldn't that be everyone's first thought, instead of "giving him the benefit of the doubt"? He has not earned the benefit of the doubt; he has only earned a high degree of skepticism on all statements at all times. Same is true for the rest of his crowd.
