    "Tim Scott, Mo Cowan: First time the Senate will have more than one black member simultaneously since the 19th century."....and remember kids...race is more important than actually being competent to do the job. That is the lesson here, today.

    Who said that is the lesson? pointing out the demographics of the Senate is all the Slate writer did...

    trying to make mountains out of molehills?

    It's a temp job, nothing to make a big deal of. The governor is using John Kerry's appointment as a way to reward a long time loyal supporter. If Cowan shows himself to be good at the job, perhaps the people of MA will actually elect him to continue.

    I am not from Mass, I don't know this "Mo," and I do not know what he does. But, I am glad that old sweet lips Barney won't be back in there. And, there is nothing wrong with Patrick giving his seemingly acomplished friend a 6 month gig.

    I am not sure how anyone not from MA would have any clue over if his pick was good or bad, but I agree that I am just happy he didn't give it to Frank.

    So sad that the first thing mentioned is his skin color, and somehow people take it as meaningful.

    @woodtick57 I stand corrected. The point still remains. Couldn't even get out of the first paragraph. How's about the guy was trusted by the governor, as well as was a good performer. Why did we really need to know or care about his color?

    @Hireman

    we really don't. i would think his trust and performance would be implied by the first mention of his former job.

    @Hireman I think it is safe to assume he will be a part of the CBC as well?(Congressional Black Caucus)
    When a person is in any group/s that has their skin color in the title and main part of it and pretends that they are anything but "working it" is BS. Especially when the hypocrite talks about King’s dream — of a world where a man is judge on the content of his character rather than the color of his skin.
