King's Dream

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.

Of those who attended Beckfest? Zero.
