Sarah Palin said Wednesday that Massachusetts "puts up" with Senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.), but he would not get elected in Alaska.
The former Alaska governor said that "you dance with the one that brought you" and that Republicans should not "follow the herd" by going along with the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda.
This prompted Fox to ask if Scott Brown was "on notice," adding that "he's gone along with the Pelosi-Reid message for the past couple of votes."
"That's Massachusetts," Palin replied. "And perhaps they're not going to look for such a hard-core constitutional conservative there and they're going to put up with Scott Brown and some of the antics there. But here in Alaska and so many places across the U.S. where we have a pioneering spirit and we have an expectation that our representatives in D.C. will respect the will of the people and respect the intelligence of the people. We wouldn't stand for that."

UPDATE: Scott Brown's camp responds, according to a dispatch from the Associated Press:
BOSTON (AP) -- A spokeswoman for Republican Sen. Scott Brown is brushing off criticism from Sarah Palin, who questioned his credentials as "a hard-core constitutional conservative."
The former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee faulted Brown, once a hero of the tea party movement, during an interview Wednesday on the Fox Business Network.
Palin said that while Massachusetts voters might be willing "to put up with Scott Brown and some of the antics there," voters in her home state "wouldn't stand for that."
Brown has sided with Democrats on a handful of initiatives including a sweeping financial overhaul. He skipped an April tea party rally Palin headlined in Boston.
A Brown spokeswoman said that his votes are based on what's best for Massachusetts and that his priorities include jobs, controlling spending and deficit reduction.
