The Obligatory Gates-gate Post

I guess I'll just get it over with.

The Young President commented yet again on the Harvard prof's accusation that Cambridge police officers were insensitive to racial matters while responding to a suspected burglary at his residence.

The Young President was responding to criticism of his weighing in on the matter. In trying to frame a dialogue on race, he said, "... if I were black or if I were white... ."

Um, yes. You are. Both.

Move along, folks. There's nothing to see here.


  1. "move along, folks. there's nothing to see here."


  2. namaste beat me to it...

    What baffles me is WHY the normally "cool" Obama would choose to divert attention from his health-care message with this Gates non-event. Perhaps it's because he realized his entire press conference and lame-ass advocacy for ObamaCare was a non-starter, in the first place.
