Connecticut has inflicted Joe Lieberman on the nation; no doubt many in the Nutmeg State regret that choice. Now Massachusetts appears likely to send Scott Brown to Washington. One wonders how Barack Obama can deliver on the promise of change when states like these stand in the way of progress. Can the good people of Massachusetts not know of the burden that is now on their shoulders?
Remembering Dr. King today -- we miss his wisdom and character today, and his practical commitment to the work of making real progress happen. If good men and women do nothing, the liberal agenda of social justice will go down to defeat. I hope that the voters in Massachusetts will be mindful of their responsibility to the nation.
