Massachusetts' very own profile in courage - U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren - Thursday voted against the only African-American nominee to Donald Trump's Cabinet, Ben Carson, who was confirmed as secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
The funny thing is that Warren was pretty much OK with voting in favor of the former neurosurgeon back when his nomination was being considered by the Senate Banking Committee - a mere five weeks ago.
In fact, at the time Warren wrote an extensive Facebook post, defending her support for Carson even though "he is not the nominee I wanted."
"But 'the nominee I wanted,' is not the test," she added.
Ah, but that was then, and this is now.
What followed was an onslaught from fellow progressives who are in no mood to compromise with anyone or any policy coming from the Trump administration.
And so Warren did what she does best - she folded, switching her vote and bending to the left-leaning political winds now roiling her party.

Fauxahantis speak with forked RACIST tongue!
This old hag of a fake injun is getting soooooo tiresome. What an absolute loser. I laugh at her existence.
Apparently Liawatha owns more property than the mansion in Cambridge. Not in her and her husband’s name but an LLC. There was a huge fire in Cambridge last Summer that put dozens of families out on the streets. 8 cities had to respond. Story disappeared after a week of non stop coverage. No cause announced. Not a word on who owns the run down property.
Of course, the New York Times would defend the lynching as "regrettable, but necessary, because Trump".
