Dave Brat: A Rising Star in the GOP
The Hill Reports:
Like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) and former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), Dave Brat sends a shock through the New York/Washington axis. His victory shows a classic denial of political reality by the political establishment. It comes because the establishment holds fast to "the way we were" and won't let go.
Reading his speeches and writings this weekend, I would say that Brat is instrumental to this rising movement as he brings a structured understanding of this vision to the Congress.
The dependable scorn and irony quotient of the mainstream press is off the charts, giving Brat the highest marks of any newcomer in recent memory since Ron Paul and Palin.
