Scott Brown, A Sheep in Wolf's Clothing?

A few weeks ago Scott Brown, the centerfold, turned politician, and Republican at that, was elected to replace Ted Kennedy as the Senator from MA. His election was celebrated by the teabaggers, nee Republicans as the end of the just begun Obama era. He was endorsed by the Alaskan Bimbo, embraced by John Boehner and his buddies, and lauded as the next coming.

But wait! Something terrible has happened. This scumbag turncoat has said that he will vote with the Democrats on the jobs bill. Hanging is to good for this dude! Draw and quarter him! Disembowel him and leave his bones to bleach on the steps of the Capitol as a reminder to any Republican member of Congress that bi-partisan thinking is forbidden in the modern era!

Who knows where Jones stands? Time will tell us, of course, whether he is truly a teabagger's delight or a moderate Republican. Given the position that Jones has taken on the jobs bill, one has to wonder whether he is a sheep in wolf's clothing. Could it be that he was fooling? Republicans are so easily taken in by a few radical words. A smooth talking politician only has to say that he or she supports a ban on gays in the military, hates abortions and Mexicans, and wants to put the church in charge of the government. The votes will roll in. Teabagger Republicans is so stupid!

You know, I have to think that if Brown wants to be more than a one term Senator he will have to align himself more with his liberal voters than with the Teabaggers. And that would be a good thing.

Little off topic but saw your comment on Tony Cartledge blog this morning.
You will want to read and quite likely blog on the cover story of Mother Jones about folks in uniform taking armed resistance to the Politics of Obama; group embraced by many elements of the Tea Party Movement
