“Republican folk hero Sen. Scott Brown is being taunted by triumphant Democrats–and slammed by irked conservatives–after the historic health-care bill he was elected to kill was signed into law by President Obama yesterday,” reports the Boston Herald.

Among Brown’s critics is Tea Partier Jeff McQueen, who traveled from Michigan–where he is most likely registered to vote–to Massachusetts–where he is most likely not registered to vote–to get Brown elected. Now, McQueen is wondering if the energy he spent traveling to another state to affect the outcome of someone else’s election was wasted. “We start to wonder whether we helped a RINO (Republican in name only) get into office,” McQueen told the Herald.

“If it wasn’t for the Tea Party movement, Scott Brown wouldn’t have gotten that seat. We expect to see a true conservative in there.”
