Scott Brown votes with Dems on jobs bill, teabaggers go apeshit

Remember Scott Brown?  The GOP challenger who unexpectedly won Ted Kennedy’s former Senate seat in Massachusetts?  Well, it looks like the honeymoon is finally over:

Not long ago, Scott Brown (R-Mass.) was elected to the United States Senate and a nation rejoiced, because he was going to drive down to Washington D.C. and become the President of Filibusters. But a funny thing happened yesterday, when Brown decided not to cast the 41st vote, and instead to vote as if he’d like to one day get re-elected to office in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Whoops:  this is where the rubber meets the road.

That was enough to earn Brown the Drudge banner, complete with the demon-red tint of betrayal!

The problem a conservative faces when elected in a liberal state is that if he wants to get re-elected, he has to govern like a liberal: it’s a no-brainer.  Amid high-pressure pre-election intensity, conservatives were able to overlook Brown’s suspiciously moderate stance on certain issues, but now that he’s safely installed in the senate it’s Payback Time, baby, and he’s expected to Bring The Wingnuttery.  Thus his vote in favour of the Democratic jobs bill yesterday, while it might have been in the best interests of his constituents, was an abomination to the tribe of the teabag, and they reacted with vehement, misspelled, CAPITALIZED rage on Brown’s Facebook page:

And the unkindest cut of all… oh, the humanity… they’re all unfriending him.

    “. . . he was going to drive down to Washington D.C. and become the President of Filibusters. . . .”

    I quite wonder if he can even read a road map and I wonder how he got to DC in the first place. Maybe he followed the Interstate numbers and arrows on the gantry signs.

    I really think this guy needs a compass. He is well and
    truly lost. Not a clue in a closet.

    Wow. “your full of bs you jerk eat a back of rocks”. That is chilling! Never before has someone on FB been told off with such incoherent force.

    On the contrary. I think he knows good and damn well what he’s doing. He doesn’t have to side with the Dems on everything, but if he keeps throwing them the odd bone, he might well get re-elected.

    Dr.Prole – Oh, some of the comments are amazing — some people really got their freak on, calling Brown a DOUCHEBAG and a SLIMEBALL and all kinds of things 😆 Just a few days ago at CPAC they greeted him like a King-in-waiting 😯

    In US right wing circles I thought that “DOUCHEBAG and a SLIMEBALL” were pretty mild insults compared to calling someone a “LIBERAL”.

    rww – Oh, don’t worry, they’re calling him a liberal too. There’s no shortage of invective being hurled at Senator Brown today by the same people who thought he was the cat’s ass 2 days ago.

    Scott Brown is not a man of honer he was to stop spending he is in bed with Obma and the rest of the mess in D.C. they just do not get it what jobs and the jobs they do get will be a low number and jobs a real person will not get. Mr Brown it is a sad day for you and a sad day for this great land we live in sir you are a man with no honer and you lied to the people you work for. people looked up to you to be working for them but you lied to them,i was 17 years old and J.F.K was a man that i looked up to for hope sir you are no J.F.K you have lied to the people and you have lied to the people that looked up to you as a leader.trust will never be a word that you can no longer be put with your name.

    Good morrow, all!
    Richard Hall: 1. If you are seeking to employ the English language in your pursuit of your point: spelling, grammar and punctuation are amazing tools to utilize. Look into them. You may be surprised at the clarity of communication that one can achieve.
    2. Oh, dearie my, did one catch a whiff of ammonia in one’s cornflakes this am? In an effort to mollify one’s outraged sensibilities, one may do well to remember:
    Scott Brown was elected by the people of Massachusetts to represent the people of Massachusetts, their interests, their aspirations, their needs, wants, desires, wishes and dreams.
    THEY are his boss, THEY are paying his salary, THEY call his tune. He was NOT elected to snog Sarah Palin, fellate Glenn Beck or be chief fart-catcher for Limbaugh the Hutt, none of whom have any obligation to be accountable to the electors and taxpayers of America. Scott Brown has that obligation.
    As for job creation: the private sector has done one heckuva job in that area. For Mexico. For India. For the Phillipines. For Korea. For the Yew Ess, Eh?…uh, not so much.
    The sacred private sector (yeah, those people that flew their private jets into DC and demanded an advance on their allowance) are to job creation what FEMA was to New Orleans in 2005, after Katrina and Rita.
