They Came Not To Praise Scott Brown...

U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) was the darling of conservatives across the nation when he won a special election against a less-than-ineffective opponent to take over the late Senator Ted Kennedy's seat.

Recently, when Brown was a part of a handful of members of Republicans that voted for the Jobs Bill, the honeymoon was over:

Glenn Beck says he's upset with Scott Brown as Senate passes The Jobs Bill. Michelle Malkin has her minions flood his Facebook page with angry comments. And the conservatives are just so angry that Senator Scott Brown's not the Senator Scott Brown they thought they got. This blogger howls!

When Republican U.S. Senator Scott Brown won the Massachusetts special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by the passing of the legendary Democrat, U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, conservatives cheered and TV pundits and Fox News and CNN hailed it as the beginning of the end of the Democratic majority in Congress. But forgotten in all the hoopla and flowing cocktails after the win was that Scott Brown never called himself a conservative, but said he was an independent.

Come to think of it, Charlie Sykes, who daily had his tingling leg syndrome and giggled like a school girl every time he mentioned Brown's name, has been awfully quiet about him lately. Poor guy must be suffering from a broken heart.


  1. They must have caught Brown with his pants on the ground.

  2. That can't be it, grumps. They like that sort of thing in their people.

  3. If you read or heard the comments during election time, Brown was a moderate, not atrue conservative. Still better than a dead Kennedy.
