We’ve actually reached the point of Obama worship where The One’s mouthpiece has to warn the media to be a bit less fawning about his photo ops.

If nothing else good came of this, at least Gates’s daughter got a chance to meet Crowley’s daughter and then comment snottily about her overuse of eyeliner in an op-ed — a bit of jackassery that made even the lefties at TNR blanch. More healing, please.
