Happy Hour at The White House...Sort of

They could have been any three guys chugging beers except that they were President Obama, Cambridge police officer James Crowley and Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., nibbling on peanuts and pretzels on the White House South Lawn, nobody willing to say, "My bad."

As Vice President Joe Biden joined them, Lucia Whalen, who happened to be passing by the White House, called 911 to report "strange activity on the South Lawn." The police arrived and led the handcuffed Barack Obama and Professor Gates off the property. Biden and Crowley had a chugging contest, after which they covered the Oval Office with graffiti, later characterized by Obama as "stupid."
