    Well, not really
    UPDATE: Cantor says shot fired at campaign office building | Richmond Times-Dispatch

    Sounds like he's really stretching. But if someone purposely tried to harm him, that is bad.

    Richmond is a bad town. Like 8th worst city in the country.

    I have lots of relatives that live about an hour west of there.

    This needs to be investigated IMMEDIATELY. Whoever the perpetrators were need to be dealt with ASAP.

    If I were one of the right-wing posters of course, I would be doubting the veracity of the claim right now, but I assume Cantor's not stupid enough to fake something like this.

    And everyone is allowed to carry a gun in VA, so it could have been just about anybody.

    Not fake it, just overplay it. A random shot that no one even knows when happened?

    It's like he's jumping up and down and saying, "Look, me too! Me, too!"

    Every time I see Boehner and Cantor together, I can't help but think of Schillinger and Beecher from the HBO series OZ.

    He originally said someone targeted him because he's Jewish but then it turns out it may have been a random bullet and no one knows what night it happened.

    There's something wrong with that man.

    I don't know Ravi. I think that as much as I disagree with the guy, I'm going to have to take him at his word with this one.

    He would have to be pretty damn stupid to claim wolf on something like this. He may be a manipulative obstructionist, but he's not stupid.

    Though, on the other hand, I would put if past some extremist right-winger to stage this event, if there was no-one in the office when they shot at it.

    However, I would say it's more than likely that even that is not the case.

    There's a lot of "gang-bangers" in Richmond.

    Though one would think if it was one of them doing a drive-by it would have been more than one shot.
