MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN - that is the mysterious handwriting on the wall that caused Babylonian King Belshazzar's knees to knock together so badly that he sent servants to immediately bring Daniel to him for a translation (Book of Daniel, Chapter 5).

Harvard Professor Skippy Gates has also seen the handwritting on the wall in the form of 911 tapes that captured his cultured Harvard tones cussing out Sgt. Crowley who was trying to establish Skippy's ID so he could leave the premises. Skippy's knows what is on those tapes - he realizes that he should move on. As Skippy is a scholar he didn't even need the services of an interpretor.

Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. says he is ready to move on from his arrest by a white police officer, hoping to use the encounter to improve fairness in the criminal justice system and saying "in the end, this is not about me at all."

Ohhhhhhh yes it was. Look at Skippy "Screaming Mad" Gates in this picture as he is escorted from the Front Porch of Shame.
Nope, not about me. Not here. Not now. This is all about a teachable moment and it's all on the tapes. Trust me. I was just teaching that cracker bastard Sgt. Crowley about inter-racial relationships and building bridges between our cultures. Really.

After a phone call from President Barack Obama urging calm in the aftermath of his arrest last week, the black professor said he would accept Obama's invitation to the White House for a beer with him and Cambridge Police Sgt. James Crowley.

In a statement posted Friday on The Root, a Web site Gates oversees, the scholar said he told Obama he'd be happy to meet with Crowley, whom Gates had accused of racial profiling.

As President Nixon found out, there is nothing like a taped conversation to bring a man to his senses. Of course Skippy credits the Magic Negro for his new found congenial attitude.

It was a marked change in tone for Gates, 58, who in the days following his arrest gathered up his legal team and said he was contemplating a lawsuit. He even vowed to make a documentary on his arrest to tie into a larger project about racial profiling.

In an e-mail to the Boston Globe late Friday, he said: "It is time for all of us to move on, and to assess what we can learn from this experience."

Gates did not immediately return phone calls and e-mails to the Associated Press on Saturday.

In LibrulSpeak, "move on" means "my ass is hanging out." He didn't need an interpretor for those tapes, but his legal team probably advised him of his exposure to other consequences if he did not back off on his rheotric. You see, in the real world where Harvard University can't armor plate your ass, you'd better listen to the pros.

Go figure - Sgt. Crowley is also contemplating a lawsuit for libel against Skippy. I would love to hear those tapes.

I wonder how much political pressure is being brought to bear on the Cambridge PD to keep those tapes out of public scrutiny?

Michelle Antoinette has never been prouder of her country then when The Mad Professor was frog-marched off his porch and dragged, kicking and screaming, to the White House for a beer.

Brings tears to yer eyes don't it? Think Obama and Skippy will will invite Crowley to do a recreational line of coke in celebration? Best buds and all that.

Mr. Crowley should decline the offer with a terse "I don't drink when I'm armed and in uniform."

Think they'd let him in with his sidearm? Heh.

Crowley was sworn to be a officer of Massachusetts and Obama's federal insertion into the fray is just another attempt by him to blur the line of Tenth Amendment.

Lemme get this straight- they drag the copper's name thru the mudd and when the tapes are ready for the public to hear, they want to back off. I don't think so. Either the copper is a racist or he is not. Either the Mad Professor apologizes for his unkind remarks or the remarks stand. In which case the officer should use the beer opportunity to serve Gates with papers.

Then things will get ugly when the public finds out Gates and Obama are fellow traveler Communists:

Oh yeah, they want this to go away.

I fear that being a commie bastard is no longer an impediment to anything. The public are idiots - that's how this poser got elected in the first place. Of course McCain had a bit to do with it also. The pubbies goota learn that they can no longer inject embalming fluid into some liberal geezer and call it a candidate.
