On Sunday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor made headlines for endorsing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. But following his appearance on "Meet the Press," some critics found a hilarious portion of his interview that many people overlooked or missed all together. In speaking about the Republican battle for the 2012 nomination, Cantor mistakenly said that it has been "a hard fart primary."

Now, quite obviously, he was attempting to say "fought" and his accent and/or a slight mistake may have taken him off the rails a bit. Nonetheless, the clip is funny and worth watching if you need a break from the daily grind:

Gawker's Emma Carmichael, of course, used the opportunity to take a swipe at the GOP candidates, writing, "The representative has a point...The GOP primary race has essentially been one giant, continuous, squelching fart joke."

Now, it's one thing to make an error in oration, but it is another debacle entirely to actually pass gas while engaged in an on-air interview. While The Blaze didn't weigh in on either side of the debate, we did ask readers what they thought about Barney Frank's alleged gas attack last August (95 percent of you believe that it was, indeed, what critics alleged).
