What..? What’s that you say? Not so good? Oh, too bad.
It seems Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), who drove his pickup truck straight to Washington D.C. on the backs of Sarah Palin and the Tea Baggers has decided (like most of the country) that their way just isn’t the way to go. Who could have predicted THAT?
From Think Progress via The Boston Herald:
U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, whose stunning victory in January was fueled in part by Tea Party anger, has snubbed the fiery grassroots group and declined its invitation to join Sarah Palin Wednesday at a massive rally on Boston Common, the Herald has learned.
Brown’s decision to skip the first big rally in Boston by the group whose members are credited with helping him win election has some experts saying he’s tossed the Tea Party overboard, as he prepares for re-election in 2012.
Apparently it just wasn’t enough to pretend as if he’d never heard of Palin right after winning the election when she claimed to have congratulated him by phone, and he said “Phone call, what phone call?”
According to the article they’re playing it down, but I wonder how long it will be before he’s thrown under the Tea Party Express bus?
