Lesser of two evils loses  
Paul Krugman finds hope, as well as schadenfreude, in the defeat of Eric Cantor. I continue to look forward to the ultimate Republican moment when the faction that believes Obama is a Muslim from Kenya is purged by the faction that believes he is a reptile from space.

Apparently deciding that Cantor was insufficiently heartless to represent their district, Republicans turned out to the polls to elect David Brat, a man whose political views “border on sociopathy,” according to exit-poll responses from voters who supported him.

Cantor's something of a - how should i say? - dick who was, nonetheless, talented at "rallying th' troops" (i.e., Congressional Republicans). Brat, on the other hand, might actually make the district competitive for Democrats (not that i'm rah-rah up-and-down for the DNC, but ..). and, yeah, i would've liked to see one of the Tea People defeat Lindsey Graham, because - as far as foreign policy views go - his were the gold standard for "dumbass."

Apparently it's an "open" primary and a lot of Demos voted for the TP guy.
