A 136-year-old organization, gathered in Wichita, KS, this week for its annual convention, has found something current to complain about.
It's the Women's Christian Temperance Union, the same all-female organization that helped push through Prohibition back in 1919.
Their complaint? President Barack Obama’s suds summit with the Harvard prof and the local cop involved in a recent dustup that immediately became a cause celebre for people who love to play the race card -- from either side.
Bunny Galladora (honest), WCTU media director, said the meeting sent the wrong message because “alcohol and conflicts are not a good combination.”
