I though bud light was the quintessential boring white guy beer?

James Dean's Pants: I though bud light was the quintessential boring white guy beer?


I would say coors light is the boring white guy beer. Bud Light is the boring post racial beer.

FTFA:
"Rob Portman has had one beer in more places than any man in America."
...
"Greg, Thanks for talking to the Enquirer about me," Portman wrote to Hartman. "The one beer comment is actually true! I love that one beer though.


Damn you, Rule 34. Damn you to hell.

Wow. He really is one of us.

It isn't the fact that he's a boring white guy that gives me pause. It's that he's a corporatist, plutocratic, boring white guy.

/assumptions being made based on the fact that he's a Republican, of course.

Budweiser isn't even real beer. The stuff doesn't taste like beer and it's made mostly out of rice.

/yes I know it is very popular, that doesn't mean it is good.

He should have sent an exciting, heart-stopping brand like the one Obama had during his beer summit photo-op.

People don't vote on the President based on the VP. They vote on whether the candidate for President is one they would want to have a beer with. And right now the GOP has picked a major tax-and-spend liberal Mexican Mormon who wants to raise the taxes on 95% of the people and ban porn and beer. So not only has the GOP gone Fascist the past few years but they've gone liberal.

I only had one beer last night, but it was a Spaten Optimator Doppelbock. If you're drinking for the taste rather than to get drunk, why would you ever drink Bud Light? It would be more useful as a paperweight. This man is clearly soft in the head and unqualified for the vice presidency.

Right now, he's leading at Intrade with 30%. Pawlenty is at 24%. Everyone else in in single digits and dropping.

Hate on Bud Light all you want, but at least he didn't send some Muslim beer like Fartbongo does.
 
2012-08-03 12:46:58 PM
If you're only going to send one beer, you could at least make it a good beer.

Proper way to send a beer to today's republican.

Portman is safe and he could win Ohio for Romney, which is a big deal.

Said Senator Portman, "The bubbles tickle my nose!"

I'd rather stick to something like the awesome Southern Tier Creme Brulee Stout chilling in my fridge. Bud Light is what you drink when there's nothing else available.

Rmoney do not drink, dummy Portman. You just disqualified yo-self. Next honkie Rmoney butt kisser please!

They will easily lose Ohio...they will easily lose this election. Romney is a horrible candidate, worse than McCain; it's just his turn to lose and then piss off to one of his offshore bank account countries.

That design is immaculate. I thought, "Beer. Thirty. Hm... That's a weird name for a beer, though they chose to brand it roughly the same as Coors Light... I wonder what it mea-"

I've actually started drinking port. It's tasty, and doesn't have to be snooty. Some decent options in the $15 range at your local grocery store, and they go on sale at about 30% off pretty regularly.

But Light is awful. Well, not awful. Just a whole lot of complete nothing. I drink beer far less then the average American, but what I do drink is much better than what the average American drinks.

I watch the polls daily. Electoral-vote.com, fivethirtyeight.com and Pollster.com... I know how massive the lead is. I'm just hoping all that loose money is going to keep not mattering. So far it hasn't done dick but make swing-state broadcasters rich.

The bigger deal would be to get Sherrod Brown out of the Senate, tbh.
