I actually wrote a long essay about the Gates arrest and the subsequent proclamation of stupidity by our Commander in Chief. I just about fell out of my chair Wednesday night when I heard it, for I had been reading up on the various news reports and had even read the offense report online.
So instead of me posting, go and read The Race Issue over at Texas Ghostrider. When I read what TG had to say about the issue, well, he succinctly said it all. I can't improve on it one iota.
