At tonight's highly retarded "teachable moment," three guys will have a beer at the White House.
President Barack Obama will host Boston cop Jim Crowley and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. over some dumb shit that happened earlier this month. Spoiler alert: nobody's mind will be changed. If you were with Crowley before, you'll be with him after. Gates, likewise. Obama - well, I'm not sure anybody thought he handled this one well.
Ah, but there's a rub. A new detail has emerged, one bound to pull folks firmly into one of the camps: the White House has released each participant's beer of choice.
President Obama will drink Bud Light. Safe, bland, American.
Crowley will drink Blue Moon. Flavorful, a little girly, also American.
Gates will drink Red Stripe. Un-American, obviously communist.
I would have gone with a Sweetwater 420 myself, but if given the choice, I'm drinking with Crowley. Blue Moon is damn good. (I just hope he doesn't put a piece of fruit it in. Good god man, you're a cop.)
What would y'all choose? And is anybody disappointed with Obama's selection? I mean, as much as I don't like his politics, the guy is a suave MFer and should drink as such. And there are probably some pissed off Chicago breweries right now.
