GOP Cantor, David Brat, Slayer Avoids Any Policy Questions Day After His Win

David Brat, college professor, accomplished a historic political milestone last night. Brat defeated House of Representative Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, in a district primary election, thus becoming the first ever candidate to unseat a seated party incumbent Majority Leader.

Is it possible the newly elected member of the US House accomplished such a feat with no preparation for policy questions? We should keep in mind, questions about policy within hours of an election win are primarily questions related to the candidates opinion. Should we assume Professor Brat has no opinion?

To pique your interest before the following video, be aware Brat responded to questions for MSNBC's Chuck Todd in a most peculiar manner. After realizing Brat actually accepted a phone interview with Todd and his network, my long standing thought on Todd as a broadcast conservative must have have facilitated Brat feeling he was on safe ground.

As I re-watch Todd/Brat following segment below, I am reminded of two of my favorite video vignettes.

Vignette One

Vignette Two (based on denseness and the loss of reality, not substance use).

All fun aside, the following without question validates commonly accepted reality of GOP "lockstep." 

There is literally no way an Economics professor from any college should be ill-prepared to provide as a minimum a perfunctory response on his thought regarding increasing the minimum wage!

Did the Brat feel post-election celebration would continue in some form of perpetuity?  I wonder if he mistakenly thought he was on Fox News?   

In actuality, what you heard above was classic need for GOP "Playbook" responses to questions, talking points and permission to "go there." Brat has no real connection to his party that would have resulted in an overnight briefing. He did to benefit from warnings from Karl Rove and others to avoid MSNBC. Those who know Brat may also know he is smart enough to avoid answers that will pin him to a position in order to avoid a "flip-flopper" label. As a newly elected Member of Congress he must also do all he can to run a barometer check on Koch positions even when sucked into the mainstream like a Kansas Tornado. 

Yes, David Brat has been sucked into a "Dorothy and Toto" Land of OZ (AKA The House of OZ)
The Road to OZ is not a road paved with Yellow (Gold) Bricks.
