Earlier tonight at the White House, President Obama had a beer with Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates and the policeman who arrested him. The meeting got off to a rough start when a neighbor called the police to say Gates was breaking into the White House.
Conservatives are criticizing Time magazine because they’ve put President Obama on the cover for the 12th time in the last year. Not only that, every week since Obama was elected he’s been on the cover of Black President Magazine.
This is Obama’s 12th appearance on the cover of Time magazine. This beats President’s Bush’s record of 11 appearances on the cover of MAD magazine.
The schedule for next year’s Iowa caucuses has been announced, and Jewish voters are upset because the caucus is being held on Saturday, which means they can’t attend. This could reduce the number of voters in the Iowa caucuses by almost two.
Summer is just flying by. I can’t believe it. My mother said to me today, “David. Try to look on the bright side — six more weeks till Jay Leno is back.”
Sarah Palin announced that she was leaving as governor of Alaska. Everybody’s asking, “What is she going to do?” She wants to host a radio show. Of course, with that she’ll have to tell people when she’s winking.
They had the big beer party down at the White House. They were celebrating the last day of finals.

The X Games start in L.A. today. BMX racers, skateboarders, and motocross dudes all compete to win a golden bong.
I love watching people test the limits of their bodies. The X Games is like Cirque du Soleil with better music.
The only event I don’t like is when the skateboarders grind down the stair rail. It makes a very annoying sound. It’s like the Jonas Brothers. Very annoying.
President Obama had his “beer summit” at the White House. It was his chance to sit down with Dr. Henry Louis Gates, the Harvard professor who was arrested for breaking into his own house, and Sgt. James Crowley, the policeman who arrested him. There was one awkward moment when Crowley asked Obama for ID.
Vice President Biden showed up too . . . I guess they wanted to even things out racially.
They sat around a table in the rose garden and drank. I’m starting to think Obama cooked this whole thing up because he didn’t want to ask Michelle if he could have a poker night.

Well President Obama held his first “beer summit” at the White House today. Obama wanted Bud Light; Crowley wanted Blue Moon; Gates wanted a Red Stripe. And Joe Biden wanted whatever fits in his beer helmet.
