If today’s Obama-Crowley-Gates beer klatche isn’t the most transparent photo op of 2009, it’ll do till something else comes along.
Dead giveaway that this is a shadow dance: Imageer-in-Chief Barack Obama has beer-shifted (for reasons that the chin-strokerati have belabored in Talmudic detail) from first-reported Budweiser to – Breaking! – Bud Light, accent on light.
Let’s hope Cambridge police Sgt. James Crowley and Harvard University poohbah Henry Louis Gates Jr. are more steadfast in their choice of malt beverages.
Beyond that there are the numerous public polls along the lines of the BettyConfidential survey, “If you had a beer with the President, what would you discuss?”
All due respect, but who cares – outside of you, that is.
Regardless, the Beltway Beer Summit will no doubt produce more bromides than an Alka-Seltzer factory.
Given all the hoopla surrounding this brew-ha, it serves us right.
