....“This is an earthquake,” said former Minnesota congressman Vin Weber, a friend of Cantor’s.“No one thought he’d lose.” But Brat, tapping into conservative anger over Cantor’s role in supporting efforts to reform federal immigration laws, found a way to combat Cantor’s significant financial edge.

Brat, an economics professor, simply failed to show up to D.C. meetings with powerful conservative agitators last month, citing upcoming finals. He only had $40,000 in the bank at the end of March, according to first quarter filings. Cantor had $2 million.....

Side note from Patrick Ruffini:

"Heads up: Precincts 210, 213, 219 in Henrico went for Obama with 81%, 79% & 85% and for Brat with 77, 83 & 86%."

"The job title is representative. It's hard to represent people when you haven't met them," complained Brat, who teaches at Randolph-Macon College, a small liberal arts school north of Richmond.

This November Brat will face Democratic nominee Jack Trammell, a professor at the same college.

"I'm as stunned as anybody," said Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. "I've yet to find one person nationally or in the state outside the Brat circle who thought Cantor would be beaten.

"This is one of the most stunning upsets in modern American political history," Sabato said. "This is the base rebelling against the GOP leadership in Washington, as represented by Eric Cantor.

"Everybody agrees that if immigration reform was on life support before, they're pulling out the plugs" because no other House Republican will want to end up like Cantor, Sabato said.

Fox News Political Editor Chris Stirewalt said Brat's election means comprehensive immigration reform is "dead meat."

Pretzel logic aptly describes the rationale -- and I use that term loosely -- of the Left.

This is just the next step in the right wingnutting themselves out of existence. Expect more gridlock. Expect more Repukelican whining. Expect more hand-wringing and navel gazing.

And expect more Democratic wins. While we look at the right moving further and further away from sensibility and responsiveness, the rest of the country will just look at themselves getting crazier and crazier till only their old man grandaddy pant suspenders are the only things holding them together.

Congratulations to Mr.Cantor....now GO HOME !!!

expect Americans to continue to abort the rot in Washington, and elect people who will demand the law be followed.

Stacking the deck to impeach the entire Obama administration, and manslaughter charges against Hillary.

Exciting times ahead.

Why hello Reader, long time. My you sound cranky.

I guess that subscription to American Spectator Magazine ran out and no one in the hood can fund it's renewal? Or did the pizza delivery guy forget the anchovies?
