What are the benefits of Brat’s defeat of Cantor? I am starting a list.
1. It emboldens freedom loving tea partiers.
2. It frustrates pollsters and shows people pollsters can’t predict the future.
3. It confuses and frightens the Republican establishment.
4. It confuses the Democrats.
5. Word is that it kills amnesty for illegal aliens.
6. It puts the lie to “he is the only one that can win.”
7. It confuses the media, which means they will make something up and get it wrong, again.
8. It shows money isn’t everything in elections. See 6. above.
