    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0No8LEiFlcM]YouTube - Video Of President Obama's Crowley/Gates Beer Summit[/ame]

    What has this world come to?

    Are we as humans so bored with our existance that we need week long coverage of Michael Jackson's death and live footage of four guys drinking beer?

    Or is there something inherently interesting in this that I just cannot comprehend?

    It was deafening! I actually had to cover my ears while I watched it!

    I'm going to have to check the Reuters' site. My ex b/f was a photographer for them up there. He's very far to the right, so I'm sure he hates Obama and would have hated to have been assigned to shoot that.

    I'm hoping he was :eusa_angel:

    ETA: nuts.

    Did you see how Biden kept reaching/pausing/posing for camera shots stretching his left arm out then non-chalantly turning and looking over his right shoulder waiting for the camera shots?

    What a slimebag. The leaders of this country have nothing better to do than photo-ops?

    I'm not as concerned about that, as much as the media's response.

    This is news? Wolf Blitzer always looks like he is pissing his pants to bring us up-to-date on all the important goings-on in the Republic of Trivialand.

    The media response is not all that surprising to some of us.
