Color me amused by House Majority leader, Eric Cantor, losing his GOP primary. Good riddance, as far as Cantor is concerned, but it's scary to imagine him as being too left-wing (which some Virginia voters apparently think). It'd be nice if that allowed someone who could reasonably be called a moderate to win, but it seems unlikely.
We can be sure, though, that Mr Brat (an economics professor at Randolph-Macon college) will not be bucking for House Majority leader if he wins the general. You'd think him feeling insufficiently informed to have an opinion on the minimum wage would be a catastrophic failure, but I wouldn't bet on it.
This sort of ideological shift generally stops dead when it runs into a wall of going too far. I'd've thought the GOP was already there, but apparently not.
