It is amazing!  Here is just some from Google search on the announced challenge by Dr. David Brat, Ph.D, chairman of economics at Randolph-Macon College!

USA TODAY – be “Eric Cantor’s term limit” – clever line!

National Review Online – I always wanted to mentioned favorably in NR!  Today, with its neocon vision, maybe mentioned UNfavorably might be better!

The Huffington Post – Not favorable but surprisingly better tone than I would have expected:

Brat plans to formally announce his candidacy Thursday and is reportedly courting the endorsement of outside conservative groups. He also shares a professional relationship with John Allison, the former CEO of BB&T Bank who now heads the libertarian CATO Institute.


Brat is perhaps the most formidable Republican opponent Cantor has faced since he was elected to Congress in 2000. But despite Brat’s potential to garner endorsements from outside groups that have repeatedly attacked House GOP leadership, he will face an uphill battle in order to defeat Cantor, the No. 2 Republican in the House. In 2012, Cantor won the GOP primary with nearly 80 percent of the vote.

Politico, too!

This is a clever blog post title (but it is not favorable!):  “A tea party Brat is coming after you!”

Well, this is not (yet) an endorsement of Dr. Brat but I can tell you I am acquainted with him and he’s smart and articulate!  And Cong. Cantor’s people better not say Hell will freeze over before he can lose the primary.  Hell did freeze over!  (That’s Hell, Michigan not the real Hell!)

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
