Now President Obama, in a classic CYA move, has invited Sgt. Crowley and Prof. Gates over for a beer at the White House. Obama says it will be a “teaching moment.” Actually, if I were Crowley, having done nothing wrong, I’d politely decline to be used politically like this, absent a public apology from both blowhards. The only way I’d show up for this “teaching moment” is if I knew Obama and Gates would be sitting at their desks, pencils sharpened, ready to take notes.
