The giant slayer isn't quite ready for his close up. For the three days since Dave Brat took down House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the GOP primary Tuesday, he's been holed up in his suburban home, avoiding the reporters and TV trucks waiting out front. While the world wants to know more about the economics professor turned sudden tea party star, Brat's in hiding, apparently unprepared for the tempest he unleashed. In a text message to The Associated Press, Brat said he was not doing any public appearances and had "shut down for a week with the family."
