Cool Water

04Feb10

It’s over. So now it can begin.

Over the course of a couple of weeks last month, Scott Brown went from being a state senator looking to expand his statewide profile with a hopeless U.S. Senate run into the most prominent U.S. politician after the president.

“I can’t promise I will be right in every vote I make. … I will do the very best job I can,” Brown told reporters.

And today he was sworn in by the Vice President of the United States.

We have been parched by the long drought, with self-rule denied the people of Massachusetts by Ted Kennedy and John Kerry for so many decades. The joy of self-determination flows through the state like a rush of cool water on a scorching summer day.

The orderly transfer of power – such an unusual event over the course of human history – never loses its impact. But today, with John Kerry and Joe Biden forced to hand so much influence over to Scott Brown in a dignified and gracious proceeding – it is a rich moment, one that we shall savor.

    I couldn’t be happier. I had the proverbial goose bumps watching Senator Brown being sworn in. It should be noted that although Biden and Kerry acted like adults, they will throw him under the bus in a big way.
    Biden also loused up the swearing in.
