TNR’s bad Brat Headline

With the headline I thought author MacGillis would reveal something about Brat that wasn’t all it seemed, but that’s not the case.  It’s about Cantor, and his ties to Wall Street.

But I think the accurate conclusion to draw is, the TPers aren’t all that hypocritical and it’s not a movement fueled by astroturf.  Given adequate insight, they toss out the fakes.

In my reading lefty wonks have been largely complimentary to Brat.

I really like this:

Koch brothers were mysteriously absent from this whole thing it seems.
