Tea party hero Scott Brown voted with the Democrats on Monday in favor of a $15 billion jobs bill. He’s also pro-choice, pro-civil unions and voted for universal healthcare in Massachusetts. How long before the tea partiers and regular conservatives, who practically named him the second coming of Christ when he won the election for Kennedy’s seat in the Senate, turn on him as a RINO? The honeymoon can’t last much longer.
Conversely, how long before Olbermann and others who savaged him as being slightly to the right of Attila the Hun back off from that silliness? Brown was, and is, a moderate Republican who is fairly liberal on social issues. He’s not Jesse Helms reborn and he never was.
