TPM's Brian Beutler was game enough to watch this Washington Post video through to the end, and he got a big payoff in evidence of sexism in journalism (as if more were needed). In a spoof of President Obama's beer summit of yesterday with Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and the man who arrested Gates in his home, Sgt. James Crowley, Washington Post writers Chris Cillizza and Dana Milbank rattle off the the beers that each of the men requested, and go on to suggest odd-titled beers for a number of Washington notables.

At the end, Milbank tells viewers, "[W]e won't tell you who's getting a bottle of Mad Bitch," and a photo of Hillary Clinton flashes on the screen.

Megan Garber of the Columbia Journalism Review has more on the WaPo's very bad video (and we have the video):
