Next up: Cantor hails speedy delivery of Pony Express

Ben Smith gets a major donor's reaction to Minority Whip Eric Cantor's recent tech gaffe at a fundraising dinner.

"Cantor says, 'We understand these things: we need to be on social networking sites — like Facebook and YouTube and LinkedUp,'" the donor said.

The professional networking site is called LinkedIn, and Cantor's words prompted some hilarity among the party's younger donors.

"We’re talking about getting tech right, and the minority whip doesn’t even know the name of the goddamn website?" groused the donor. "At least John McCain was honest."
