39. Who cares?
Is it really important to you?
You'd rather talk about the whether people address the President with or without his title? Then whether or not he blundered in his talk last night?
I kid you not, I watched that conference, and heard that question, and I was like, "don't take the bait."
But he did.
And then, when he said, he knew Bates, I was like, "just say you can't comment on it."
But he didn't say that.
Then, I was like, "just say something generic" about race relations. Don't refer to this specific case."
And then, despite admitting that he didn't have all the facts, he said "police acted stupidly."
My jaw hit the floor.
He walked right into a fucking bear trap.
We'll see if I am right. And if I am wrong, I'll admit it.
But I doubt the 25 or so people who've swept in here with their cutesy little drive-by insults will do the same.
