The Only Endorsement I Need
The MSM's obsession with with the recent Bill Richardson endorsement of Barack
But, there is one endorsement that matters.
Beer drinkers appear more likely to vote for Sen. John McCain in November,...Amen.
Now, THAT would be a worthy waste of several poli-sci college seniors' time.
Microbrewers and beer aficionados are generally far more libertarian than left or right, taking into consideration geography. Such a study may demonstrate the current strength of 1) the current state of the libertarian - Republican coalition and 2) McCain's true electability among independents. Though, I would agree with your suspicions that there would be a mighty undercurrent of Democratic preference among such beer selections as well. True Repbulicans would come in a distant third after the other two, so the overall estimation isn't far off.
I can almost see the Republican stranglehold on Budwieser and Coors product lines, but PBR is a staple among punk cultures, hipster cultures and the old cotton belt counties of the South (that long swath of blue that cuts from Florence, SC to Valdosta, GA and then west to the Mississippi River and then up to Memphis).
Those of us who drink a 'Redneck on Vacation' (PBR can with a lime in it) may turn the Blue Ribbon surprisingly bluer than expected.
Miller products would be a toss up based on sales in the Midwest. Ditto Michelob.
But the Sam Adamses, the Amstel Lights and the Amber Bocks (all highly advertised 'designer' selections) would probably fall quite blue.
I'd fall over laughing, too, when the Corona and Tecate crowd came back overwhelmingly for McCain.
