shoo bop de loo bop...

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) had a lengthy argument on the House floor Friday afternoon in which they alternatively blamed each other for the failure of the House to address issues like jobs and the deficit.

The exchange, which could be the last of their weekly colloquies until after the November election, included moments in which Hoyer laughed at Cantor's prescription for job creation. Cantor could occasionally be heard muttering things like "here we go" as Hoyer launched into a new criticism of GOP policies.

The long floor fight highlighted the intensely partisan atmosphere that critics say has undermined Congress's ability to address the nation's biggest challenges.

Cantor started his remarks by saying the House would only be in session next week, after which members are expected to be free to return to their districts and campaign until the Nov. 6 elections.

The fight also seems to mark one of the lower points of cooperation between the two leaders. The relationship between Hoyer and Cantor has always had its ups and downs, but it seemed to be on the upswing earlier this year. They found a way to cooperate on a bill extending the Export-Import Bank, and have cooperated famously on the issue of strengthening support for Israel.

guys?  you're both to blame.


Because I can,
