The media, peering behind their cameras, appeared to be the only ones wearing President Barack Obama's beer goggles.

Washington, D.C. - Allowed only a few minutes to take their photos across the White House lawn with telescope lenses and no audio, the media peering behind their cameras appeared to be the only ones wearing President Barack Obama's beer goggles at the much-hyped "Beer Summit" between Sgt. James M. Crowley and Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. Or did Obama have more than a race card to play, up his rolled up sleeve?

"The talks were more than cordial in nature, yielding substantial results," later said a White House spokesman regarding the meeting. "After all, President Obama did get Sgt. Crowley to agree to stop building settlements on the West Bank."

"Huh?" replied Sgt. Crowley, scratching his head, trying to make sense out of what Obama just said to him. "What West Bank settlements?"

"Never mind," said Obama has he held up his beer mug up for a toast. "Just keep smiling and pose for the cameras. Remember, I kept them at arms length not just for you guys, but for the benefit of the nation."

Being quite the diplomat, Obama then turned to Mr. Gates Jr. and asked him: "Now, you agree to recognize Sgt. Crowley right to exist once and for all, right?"

"What?" said Professor Gates Jr. "Right to exist? What's that?"

Later, as the President and Vice President stood on the steps of the White House waving good-bye to their guests, Obama whispered to Biden, "Gee, I hope things go that good at the upcoming Middle-East peace talks."

"Mr. President," responded Joe Biden. "With all due respect, I think you better take off those beer goggles before someone else sees you wearing them."
