President Obama last night said he didn’t know all the facts about the arrest of his friend, Harvard Professor and “black scholar” Dr. Henry Gates, but he did manage to know enough facts to say that police “acted stupidly” and that race was clearly a factor in the arrest:


The arrest report is here. On the surface at least it looks like Gates has a bigger chip on his shoulder than an ant carrying a Dorito, but you be the judge. He sounds like a total dick if you ask me.

One telltale sign that Gates is your average ivory-tower liberal elitist professional outrage-peddler is evidenced by the fact that Gates was upset that the officer didn’t recognize him, and he comes across as someone so filled with race paranoia that he’s incapable of understanding that the officer wanted to make sure the home belonged to Gates for his own safety.

If there’s ever an emergency 911 call from Gates’ address, next time the police just might take the long way over there.

In the meantime, the arresting officer won’t apologize. And how about this for a high-kick finish:

The Cambridge cop prominent Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. claims is a racist gave a dying Reggie Lewis mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in a desperate bid to save the Celtics superstar’s life 16 years ago Monday.

‘Nuff said. The officer and the entire Cambridge Police Department are the ones who should be demanding an apology — both from Gates and Obama.

Update: There’s a Henry Gates t-shirt for sale already. Capitalism lives! (h/t Michelle.)
