I noted in my post yesterday that James Crowley has behaved impeccably from start to finish when it came to this whole sordid affair. Yes, he may have let an obstreperous Gates press his buttons on that night in Cambridge, but since then he has epitomized grace under fire. As if we need more evidence of that fact, here’s a picture that the White House released showing Crowley helping his foe down the stairs, while Obama strides on, utterly oblivious to his friend’s difficulties:
I acquit Obama of being intentionally insensitive — I think he’s just too self-involved to think of someone else’s infirmities — but I give highest marks to Crowley’s manifestly intentional kindness and thoughtfulness.
UPDATE: The Radio Patriot adds a few more pictures, giving a nice perspective.
