I didn’t see the president’s press conference last night. But I understand he got a question about Skip Gates in which Obama observed that the officer in question acted stupidly. I would say that any time you wind up arresting a guy on charges stemming from an alleged break-in to his own house and then drop the charges, that by definition you’re acting stupidly. Anyways, Spencer Ackerman at the time of the incident tweeted:
GOD I can’t wait to read the white backlash against Obama’s Gates comment. To the Corner I go!
And the Corner delivered. You didn’t even need to wait for one of the really repugnant Corner writers either. Instead, the relatively reasonable Yuval Levin delivered the outrage on behalf of an aggrieved white America.
