"...A modest job-creation bill advanced in the U.S. Senate on Monday as the chamber's newest Republican bucked his party and sided with Democrats on a $15 billion package of tax cuts and highway spending.
Republican Scott Brown joined four other Republicans, 55 Democrats and two independents to overcome a procedural hurdle that sets up a final vote later this week..." (source)
His Facebook friends were not amused.
It's okay though. A Rino in Teddy Kennedy's seat is still good with me. His win and the collective liberal gasp it caused still exceeded my wildest dreams. So he's pro-choice and pro-porkulous. He'll shape up. I have a feeling. He's eying the Oval Office already. Thinking he can be the next CIC heart throb with a Boston accent. But he knows he can't do that as a pro-abort. He knows he can't do that as a tax-and-spend fiscal moderate (And if he doesn't, there will be plenty of people to tell him). I think he wants to ease in. Tell the Democrats and Independents that voted for him that they did the right thing. And I don't even care. There's a man with an (R) after his name in Teddy Kennedy's seat and the thrill of that has yet to wear off...
Alright, so the fact that he broke a Republican filibuster just a few short days after speaking at CPAC bothers me a bit... but probably not as much as it bothers Teddy that a Republican got his seat.
