The Beer Summit

Much has been written and said about "The Beer Summit" held at the White House this week. Much curiousity surrounds the attendance of Vice President Joseph Biden. Much ado about nothing. The Vice President wasn't there to offer perspective or even to support his boss. He was there for one reason and one reason only. Without him the picture would be of two black men and a white guy. And because those black men were the first African-American President and a celebrated African American scholar and professor and the white man was a working stiff cop, well you can figure out the rest. Vice President Biden was added for balance, Plain and simple. Because that is the REAL reason for Mr. Biden's appearance, we still have a long way to go.
