President Barack Obama screwed up royally by saying those Cambridge cops “acted stupidly” when arresting black Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr.
The prez wasn’t there, didn’t know what happened, and inserted his foot directly into his mouth by passing judgment without knowing the facts.
But he showed some class by admitting he misspoke, and then he showed further integrity by offering to meet with the cop, Sgt. James Crowley, and Gates to sit down and have a beer and discuss the situation like gentlemen.
Think of all the problems that could be solved this way.
Candy and Tori Spelling could be bestest besotted buddies.
The guy who owns this fist could be exchanging wet kisses with Perez Hilton by now.
If only George W. Bush had guzzled Bud Lite with Saddam Hussein, we might have averted a war.
Never underestimate the healing powers of alcohol.
