Styx is the government!!!!

You wouldn't know it by looking at him, but clean-scrubbed House Republican Deputy Whip Eric Cantor is a huge fan of Styx. "I grew up on Styx -- 'Mr. Roboto' and 'Lady,' and 'Come Sail Away,' which I still like to sing, but I'm not going to sing it for you now," the 40-year-old Richmond resident told us yesterday after giving members of the rock band, in town to play MCI Center, a tour of the Capitol. "I was happy to do it because I did it with fond memories of the band," Cantor said. "Yeah, they were dressed more casually than most people in the Capitol. There were definitely earrings and some dyed blond hair."

Huh. That's something you don't see every day.
