When I heard the Gates-Crowley thing, I pretty quickly came to the conclusion that it was a petty squabble that didn’t seem to involve race. I stopped caring. I don’t know who thought to ask the President what he thought about the borderline-justified arrest of someone for disorderly conduct in their home. But this ridiculous story just won’t go away.
I haven’t — and won’t — taken the time to read it, but it’s apparently turned into a multi-hour liveblogging session for major news outlets, complete with coverage of protests, allegations of sexism (the female 911 caller, who gave her tearful speech about the emotional anguish that ensued, was not included), and even news coverage about the absurd level of news coverage.
How crazy has our nation become?
