Whichever Democrat winds up sitting with House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) on what's being called bipartisan "date night" will likely know that he or she wasn't the House Republican official's first choice.

That's because Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the former House speaker and present minority leader, tweeted an apology to Cantor for being already booked.

I thank @GOPLeader for his #SOTU offer, but I invited my friend Rep. Bartlett from MD yesterday & am pleased he accepted

Here's hoping Cantor or one of his aides at least got a phone call beforehand, that they didn't have to read it first on Twitter.
