As the dust settles on the congressional primary race results that saw Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor defeated by a little known challenger, many pundits are offering their theories about this stunning upset.

Loyola University student Dominic Lynch offers possibility one that is truly eye-popping!

Professor David Brat is largely described as a smart and sexy – yet scatterbrained – educator by students who have taken his classes at Randolph-Macon College.

That according to comments about Brat and his job performance on the popular “Rate My Professors” website – which college students often use when choosing classes.

Brat’s RateMyProfessors page boasts mostly positive reviews, with adjectives such as “charming,” “hot,” “eye candy” and “solid” tossed around.

Several students pointed out he could be scatterbrained, but were willing to overlook that because he infused intelligence and humor into his lectures, with a few saying his good looks were quite disarming.

Professor Brat’s “average” score was a 3.4 out of 5 taking into account factors like helpfulness, clarity, and textbook use. He was also rated as 3 chili peppers out of 4 as a “hotness” rating.

“He’s so charming and really knows how to incorporate real world examples to keep the class exciting and (relatable),” one student wrote. “He change(s) assignments a lot and sometimes it’s unclear what he wants you to do. Plus he’s total eye candy!!”

“At least he’s hot!!” stated another, who added nothing else to their comments.

“Brat changes assignments all the time, but he is so charming, you forget to be mad at him,” a third explained.

…The professor’s faculty page provides an interesting list of courses: Business Ethics, Principles of Micro Economics, and Public Finance.But the class that stands out is “Economic Justice” – a term often used by liberal academics to decry capitalism and advocate for socialistic entitlement programs.

The course is described as examining “the major conceptions of economic justice primarily in the western world. Major ethical schools of thought include the Socratic/Platonic/Aristotelian, the Judeo-Christian, and the Enlightenment school of Locke, Rousseau, Kant, Mill and Marx.”

The course also covers Adam Smith, John Maynard Keynes, and Milton Friedman- a healthy survey of economic thought.
