Yuengling Diplomacy

This morning on Meet the Press Hillary Clinton shrugged off Obama’s Gates slip by reassuring David Gregory that Obama would “sit down and have a beer” with Gates and the white cop.

. . .

Reuters confirms,

A prominent black Harvard University scholar has accepted an invitation to have a beer with President Barack Obama and the white police officer who arrested him in a racially charged case.

Is this really a sustainable take on diplomacy?  Should Hillary crack a cold one with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?  I’m all for a casual taxavoideropoly, but this is just one more notch on the “slouching towards socialism” belt.  We don’t want a president who’s above the law, but it would be nice to have one who doesn’t say “stupid” things and then dons a black kerchief with the cops.
