An Uppity Non-invitation to the 'Beer Summit'

The three highly-trained guys who reacted badly (Professor Gates, Sgt. Crowley, and even President Obama) are getting together tonight for a beer at the White House.

The only person in the script who did not overreact is not invited.

I don't know. Maybe it's a guy thing.

Obama got himself in the middle of this mess by saying the police acted "stupidly" which is how he now finds himself hosting a 'Beer Summit'.

But ... behind all the bombast, posturing, and political games that almost everyone has been playing, there seems to be little or no room in the narrative for a person who simply tried to do the right thing in a difficult situation, with full cognizance and awareness of the difficulties of that situation.*

Lucia Whalen, a quietly Uppity Woman with no special training.

"Have a Bud," guys. You deserve it.
