Don’t look now, but a feud is brewing between Sarah Palin and Scott Brown. The conservative it-girl slammed the GOP’s golden boy last week for not being conservative enough. Liberal Massachusetts might “put up with Scott Brown and some of the antics there,” she told Fox Business, “But up here in Alaska, and so many places in the US … we wouldn’t stand for that.”

But in an interview in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, Brown brushed off the attack. “I don’t know what the surprise is,” he said. “I said I was going to go down there and be an independent voice. … People say, what are you doing? They say, well you are working with the Democrats. I say, so what's the big deal? I do that all the time.” So what exactly ticked Palin off? Well it could have been this. Or this. But our money's on this. (More Scott Brown stories.)
