I'm not the biggest tv junkie in the world, but I knew who Henry Gates was cuz I've seen him on Charley Rose and Tavis Smiley, so he's not exactly obscure to begin with. I was a little suspicious, but I kept trying to withhold judgement til I knew all the facts. The only trouble is, as each fact comes out I am more and more convinced that the police did in fact act stupidly, and that would be the least you could say. It is one more bleak example of the Police State some of us have to live in.
Now, some are calling on Obama to apologize! For what? He is a very gracious man, and he is generously choosing to call it a teachable moment. It is all these people with their tired, selfish and mean-spirited attitudes who need desperately to learn something about human rights and mutual respect. And no matter what his colleagues say, I say, shame on Seargent Crowley.
These are the same people who are going to Tea Parties, starting a birther movement and rhapsodizing over Sarah Palin!
Who in their right mind would want to align themselves with all these delusional nut-cases. They are quite simply a huge bunch of sore losers masquerading as activists.

Unfortunately there are masses of people who align themselves with this insanity. I'm sure that there are going to be many people backing behind Glen Beck now after he called the President racist, too.

yes and you know you think of him, and doesn't the word buffoon come to mind? I guess he thinks he's Rush Limbaugh's potty-mouth-piece in training.
