The move to demonize Cantor begins

Mike Allen reports on Democrat efforts at targeting congressional members in Republican districts:

SAMPLE AD: 'Did you know Congressman Eric Cantor voted to bail out big banks, but opposed tax breaks for 95 percent of American workers? Times are tough, tell Eric Cantor to put families first.'

The ads are called "Putting family's first"; ironic considering the contraceptives Democrats pushed to include in the stimulus.

UPDATE!: Another sample ad.

"Republicans' champagne wishes and caviar dreams simply don't connect with middle class families struggling to make ends meet and furious that their tax dollars are going to bail out banks, build schools in Iraq, or send American jobs overseas."

"Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams". Sounds like an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.
