Someone get Eric Cantor some Ben & Jerry’s, stat. On Tuesday night, the House majority leader got walloped in the Republican primary race in his district, and by Wednesday afternoon he’d announced that he’ll step down from his leadership position in July. The Atlantic reports, “It’s unclear when elections would be held to succeed Cantor.”
Talk about a sudden change of fate. Politics aside, you’ve gotta feel for a guy who’s clearly going through some tough times. Hey, at least he’ll have time now to finally learn to play the guitar. Or get really into home brewing. Or master the art of mixing Old-Fashioneds.
But first, Eric: Cut yourself some slack and tuck into some soothing comfort foods. There, there. It’s OK. Grab a fork.

Spaghetti and roasted tomato sauce. No need for meatballs. Just some hearty spaghetti topped with a sweet dollop of roasted tomato sauce. Oh, and grated Parmesan. Lots and lots of Parmesan.
Chicken soup with rice. A big bowl of steaming chicken soup dotted with juicy grains of rice is just what the doctor ordered. Best enjoyed in bed while wrapped in a large down comforter and wearing a flannel footed onesie.
