A Peek Inside the Office of David Brat

Politico is running a series of pictures from David Brat's office  at Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, Virginia, where he is a professor.

They tell an interesting story.

It seems he has a sense of humor:

This is not encouraging:

He appears to be a big John Allison fan. I read Allison's book and am not such a big fan. See my review: A Dangerous New Book from the Head of the Cato Institute

Brat's Rand collection is not surprising given his fondness for the Allison book. Allson is a hard core warmongering Ayn Rand fan. SEE: Panic Inside Cato Over a Potential War Hawk Turn. But it doesn't appear that those Rand books have been cracked. Note also that in the pile to the right there is a Peter Schiff book and a Tom Dilorenzo book:

In this pile, we have more Ayn Rand books (He must be giving them away.)

  1. This is exactly why it is so difficult to get anyone of character and substance into the political sphere: the media anal exam. Anyone of true character and substance is going to have peccadillos, idiosyncrasies and maybe even some skeletons. One thing is for certain: a Thomas Jefferson or a George Washington would never be elected today. Heck: the Republican establishment would never even allow them to get on the ballot.
