From The Hill:

Newly-seated Republican Sen. Scott Brown (Mass.) on Monday joined Democrats in voting to move forward on their $15 billion jobs bill.

Disappointing, but not really surprising, so I don’t quite understand the shocked – SHOCKED – uproar. Scott Brown is the Senator from MASSACHUSETTS.  He also campaigned saying he wasn’t beholden to any party and would be an Independent voice/vote for Massachusetts. While the Jobs Bill is a crock, I’ll withhold full judgment until the health care votes and see if he sides with Democrats then. I don’t think he will; he campaigned on voting against it and if he wants to be re-elected, he’ll keep that promise.

Speaking of being re-elected, here is a helpful reminder: Scott Brown, who campaigned as a Moderate and whom so many loved a scant month ago, has to vote like a Massachusetts Republican, listening to the people he represents, if he wants to be re-elected. A Massachusetts Republican is not, nor will it be any time soon, the same as a, say, South Carolina Republican. Personally, I’d prefer that outcome (his re-election) over any Massachusetts Democrat, who would surely vote along the lines of John Kerry and Ted Kennedy every single time.

So, I will wait for the health care votes. And in the meantime, still better mostly red than Ted.
