I'm Disappointed in My President

According to this article on, the drink menu for Obama's meeting with Skip Gates and Officer James Crowley has been announced by White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs:
The president will drink Bud Light, Gates will have Red Stripe, and Crowley will drink Blue Moon, Gibbs said.

I thought they were going to get together and drink beer.

But but. . .they'll try and convince you that Blue Moon is some kind of "indie" beer. Indie beer brewed by MolsonCoors.

Blue Moon used to be really good. And it was even pretty good in Minnesota, even though it had been bought by the BigBeerBot. In Oklahoma, the only place you can find Blue Moon is in the grocery store, and it's 3.2.


I've had Red Stripe and enjoyed it in the past, but the Prez is drinking Bud Fucking Light. Are you kidding me? With all of the good American beers, he drinks that non-beer swill?

But the southern gentlemen will immediately see that and identify with him.

I bet he doesn't drink it in private.

Erin said...

I'll argue with you that Blue Moon has never been good because it was always made by Coors. First at Coors Field and then when it became popular at the Golden plant. So it's always been part of the BigBeerBot.

And maybe the prez is watching his weight ;-) But even then he could have had the New Belgium Skinny Dip which wasn't that bad.

I used to like Blue Moon's pumpkin beer... but I don't think I've seen it since we moved down here. But there's a lot I don't see since we moved down here! :P
