House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) slipped Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) a note in study hall asking if she would be his date to the State of the Union address. However, the former House Speaker said no and stated she’s already had a date. It was true heartache for Eric Cantor being rejected by little Nancy.
The invitation from Cantor was made Monday evening through staffers for the two leaders, spokesman Brad Dayspring said.
The pairing would have been among the more high-profile for an event that has in recent days been compared to a school dance, as lawmakers scurry to find cross-party seatmates for the president’s annual address. Instead of the traditional party-line seating arrangement, dozens of members have planned to sit with lawmakers from the other party as a symbol of renewed civility.
BTW, no Weasel Zippers you are not the only one that finds the “date night” SOTU a total irritating bunch of BS. It is not important are mean anything who you symbolically sit next to an a faux image of unity … IT MATTERS WHAT ONE STANDS FOR NOT WH YOU SIT NEXT TO!!!
