pass the beer… 30 July 2009Posted by marisacat in 2010 Mid Terms, 2012 Re Election, AFRICOM, DC Politics, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, la vie en rose.
The floating stage on Lake Constance in Bregenz as seen in Quantum of Solace. Above, the stage that appeared in the film was created for Giacomo Puccini’s opera “Tosca” in 2007… [GETTY]
… so did the boychicks look each other in the eye?
I read they were joined by Biden, who, in my opinion, IS a racist – in that classic old Pennsylvania way, with white ethnic Catholic thrown in…. Maybe, as they sweltered in what I read was a steamy Washington day, they talked of the never very successful Rose Garden, put in by Jacqueline. Planted in a less than fortuitous spot, or so rosiers say.
From Politico’s Whiteboard:
OBAMA: “I am thankful to Professor Gates and Sergeant Crowley for joining me at the White House this evening for a friendly, thoughtful conversation. Even before we sat down for the beer, I learned that the two gentlemen spent some time together listening to one another, which is a testament to them. I have always believed that what brings us together is stronger than what pulls us apart. I am confident that has happened here tonight, and I am hopeful that all of us are able to draw this positive lesson from this episode.”
We can consider ourselves “taught”. Thank you, Mr Obama!, we can cry in unison. (Anyone ever notice old student evals of Professor Obama surface? They did for the Unibomber, as he had taught at some university in the mists of time. But not for Obama, that I noticed.)
I think “crappy nothingness” was achieved here… and is a good take away ”lesson”. Pencils down, books closed. Carry on.
