Scott Brown paves way for vote on jobs bill

Just one month ago, Pete Sessions was crowing about Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts, issuing a statement that said, in part:
Tonight, Massachusetts voters relived their historic roots with a mass revolt against the Obama-Pelosi agenda of bigger government, higher taxes, and fewer jobs. No matter how Democrats want to spin it, there is a movement building in America that threatens their majority in Congress. All across this country there are candidates like Scott Brown who have had enough and are running to put an end to a culture of fiscal recklessness in Washington.
But yesterday, Scott Brown joined a handful of Republicans in voting in favor of cloture on the Democrats $15 billion dollar job bill, allowing the bill to go forward for a vote.

Democrats are praising Scott Brown for his bipartisanship, while Republicans are calling him a low-life scum hypocrite. Wonkette has tweets, and you can vote for your favorite Facebook screenshot at Gawker.
