Obama sells out to the Belgians

http://www.huliq.com/1/84258/obama-beer-summit-feature-red-light-and-blue

This offends me on so many levels.

First of all, Bud Lite? Plueeze. You can’t give a few calories to the cause of righteous beer drinking and plausable summit holding? Are you going to drink White Zinfandel at the next French state dinner?

Second, how on earth can you drink a Belgian beer that looks, tastes and smells like piss? Just because you don’t want your six pack to screw up your six pack? Live a little Mr. Prez!

Third, letting your participants pick their own beer? What kind of leadership is THAT? You pick their beer and they’ll like it, DAMMIT! May I remind you that your participants also screwed America over? The Prof picked a Jamaican beer (oh, the spliff jokes we could make) and the Sgt. picked a beer co-owned by our enemies to the north, Blue Moon (while brewed in all-America Colorado formerly brewed in Memphis, TN, until they closed the brewery, by American Coors which merged with Canadian Molson, becoming the bi-national juggernaut Molson-Coors Brewing company – note that Molson boldly comes first in the corporation title!). And Blue Moon is also a “Belgian-style” ale. Damn Belgians. Trying to take over the diplomatic world with their Brussels-centric control over the EC.

Fourth, how can you be so politically tone-deaf? Now you set yourself up for Professor Gates to accuse you of caving to whites. I mean, drinking the national beer of rednecks? Bud Lite, the beer that “passes” for beer?

Hell, dude…I mean Mr. Dude, if you’re going to let someone drink a Belgian-owned beer, at least choose this logo:

Since the White House doesn’t routinely stock foreign beers (unless they are formally American beers now wholly owned by  foreign conglomerates, that is), send Rahm out to the nearest specialty beer store STAT before you permanently destroy your legacy.

Or, at the very least, cave in to Massachussetts special interests and pick Samuel Adams (Light,  if you really have to watch your waistline).  Or import Kid Rock’s American Badass Beer from Michigan. It might give you a leg up in the Health Care battle that you’re losing a grip on (who wants to go up against an American Badass?). Plus, it’s likely to taste as anemic as a Bud Lite.

    Hey, I used to make the BM Belgian White (Belgian Style Ale)in Memphis Tennessee. It was exclusively brewed and packaged here for mass production. Until coors decided to close the brewery in 2006. It is not a US made product now, as it’s production was moved to Montreal Que. Can.

    IT IS NOT AND ALL AMERICAN MADE BREW.

    just my 2c worth

    Thanks for the correction, although, in my defense, I used the term “all-American” to describe Colorado, which, unless Canada is now a co-owner, is still “all-American”.

    I have made the requisite tweak to the post.

    Hey, at least they still make Gibson guitars in Memphis!

    As a Coloradoan, I can firmly say that Canada is not a co-owner of us. 😉
