“Down, down I come, like glist’ring Phaeton,
Wanting the manage of unruly jades.
In the base court?  Base court, where kings grow base,
To come at traitors’ calls, and do them grace.”  – Richard II

[Note:  The first two lines refer to the fable of Phaethon, who

drove a chariot of sun but couldn’t control the horses (or jades),

and they drove too close to the earth and set fire to forests and cities.]

Cantor couldn’t control the unruly Tea Party and now he’s thrown down; thrown down in the base court of Congress.
