Today is the 47th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s I Have a Dream speech delivered during the historic March on Washington. In 2010, we are improbably presented with a shock jock turned conservative cable television commentator, the doofus Glenn Beck using the occasion as a call to action in restoring America's honor. I personally despise everything that Beck stands for and, whenever possible, deliberately ignore the pronouncements made by this numbnut. That said, I wonder how many folks have taken the trouble to read what King said in 1963 and how far it is removed from what Beck is saying today.
