Why our President is a mensch...

President Obama made the mistake of weighing in on the arrest of Harvard scholar Henry Gates last week - but came up with a surprisingly pragmatic solution to the two men's disagreement:

"This is nothing that couldn't be worked out over a beer at the White House," the President admitted, when pressed about his thoughts on the renowned scholar's arrest and the media firestorm it ignited. The promise of beer wasn't an idle one - the three men are set to enjoy Budweiser and Blue Moon together later this week.

Considering that beer and diplomacy go hand in hand together (America was founded on fine ales from Philadelphia's City Tavern) I think it's an inspired suggestion.
