The A-hed in today’s Wall Street Journal reports the latest non-issue in the White House: today’s reconciliatory beer party after the Cambridge flap. Turns out that Henry Louis Gates is fond of Red Stripe, that delicious Jamaican brew from London’s Diageo, while Sgt. James Crowley is partial to Blue Moon, majority-owned by the Brits. The president’s going to suck on a Bud Light — but remember, Anheuser sold itself last year to InBev, a Brazilian/Belgian company. So none of the three are American beers! OMG! I cringe to think of Sean Hannity shrieking about this tonight: he’s the babbling idiot who tut-tutted the president for ordering “fancy mustard” (it was Dijon) for his diner burger a few months ago. Maybe Glenn Beck can have a good cry about unpatriotic suds. Sheesh. Sometimes I’m embarrassed for us.
FRIDAY: Professor Gates had a Sam Adams Light. The only true American!
