Sarah Palin Goes a Feudin’ with Scott Brown

sarah palin scott brown feud

Sarah Palin was on Fox Business this morning where she did not hesitate to start a feud with former Tea Party golden boy, now pariah Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) for daring to vote with Democrats on some issues. Palin claimed that Brown was not a hardcore constitutional conservative and that Massachusetts would, “put up with Scott Brown and the antics there.”

When asked if Scott Brown will be voted out of office because he has worked with Democrats, Palin answered, “That’s Massachusetts and perhaps they are not going to look for such a hardcore constitutional conservative there and they are going to put up with Scott Brown and the antics there. But up here in Alaska and in so many places across the US, where we have a pioneering independent spirit and an expectation that the representative in DC will respect the will of the people and the intelligence of the people; we wouldn’t stand for that.”

The “antics” that Palin was referring to are Scott Brown’s votes with the Democrats on the jobs bill, and the financial reform bill. In the world of the divisive Mama Grizzly bipartisanship is tantamount to treason, and the self-appointed Tea Partier in Chief seems to be looking to make Brown pay. This was Palin’s first very public step in ostracizing the Massachusetts senator from the Tea Party, but as with everything involving Palin, there is also a personal vendetta at work here as well.

There are a few very personal reasons why Palin is upset with Brown. The first reason is that Brown blew off Sarah Palin’s Tea Party rally in Boston this spring, by essentially saying that he had better things to do, and perhaps an even bigger reason is that Brown has already came out publicly, in April on Today, and endorsed Mitt Romney for the 2012 Republican nomination.

There is no greater indicator of just how dysfunctional our political process has become when Scott Brown exhibits a little bi-partisanship and gets labeled a heretic by a political zealot like Sarah Palin. Brown’s way of doing things is how Washington used to work, you know how legislation actually got passed, but the hyper-partisan, selfish, small, zero sum game mind of Sarah Palin can’t comprehend this, so she could not resist taking a very public shot at Brown, and putting him smack dab in the middle of the crossfire in the Republican civil war.

  1. Her “mind” is too microscopic to understand the concept of bipartisanship and how it has worked in the past toward accomplishing major legislation. This rigidity and inflexibility will eventually be the death of the GOP in spite of any short-term wins.

  2. hard-core constitutional conservative huh? that’s hilarious. Because anytime you vote in a hard-core constitutional conservative or anyone else for that matter they will be just like the people we have in Congress today. You see there’s a little thing called the American people who have requirements and needs, and those hard-core constitutional conservatives are bound to deliver those needs and requirements.

    Americans have no idea what they would lose if we let hard-core constitutional conservatives take over our Congress. Unfortunately we also have no idea what certain people would gain

  3. I have said it before and I will say it again Sen. Brown likes being in office and will do what needs to be done to stay there if if that means “GUP” work for his constituants and not just the 20%ers who are batshit crazy teabaggers.

  4. If more Republicans were like Brown, it would;

    A. Be better for Republicans
    B. Be better for Democrats
    C. Be better for EVERYONE.

    WTF is SO hard to understand???

  5. Scott needs to do what Mama Grizzly did to satisfy her constituants. QUIT! LOL!
    See how well that has been working for Sarah. Sarah’s a Constitutional Conservative whatever that is. Like she knows ANYTHING about the Constitution to begin with. Lady Blah Blah needs to go the show Are you smarter than a 5th grader and have the whole show focus around the Constitution. I wonder if that would finally put an end to this crap.

  6. Sarah has to grab the spotlight, and like the spoiled child she is, she’ll make trouble just to grab attention.

    What a grandiose sense of self-importance and preoccupation with keeping yourself in the spotlight you have, Sarah! Why do you relish in making turmoil? To appeal to all your adrenaline drama junkies who substitute you for their need to get a real life? I’m willing to lay odds that an accurate psychological survey of your base would reveal a large percentage of your followers have are addicted to “reality TV” and have an unhealthy fascination with train wrecks.

  7. This is Palin. Her logic is a bit different:

    A. Play the victim, get more support. (Scott Brown betrayed the Tea Party).

    B. Attack someone get more media attention for herself.

    C. Get more media attention, and make more money.

  8. Thomas,
    Boy did you just nailed Her and her Poonies (Palin + Moonies)
    I have been trying to find the words to describe her and you beat me to it! Love YOU for that!

  9. Brilliant piece, Jason. I love your final paragraph:

    “There is no greater indicator of just how dysfunctional our political process has become when Scott Brown exhibits a little bi-partisanship and gets labeled a heretic by a political zealot like Sarah Palin.

    If President Obama had enough Republicans like Brown in Congress he might get more done.
