We try to stay out of political in-fights, but something caught our eye in the most recent Washington shakeup. We’re talking about the newly-departed General McChrystal’s stated drink of choice: Bud Light Lime.
We realize that not all powerful people spend their leisure time sipping neat scotch in wood-paneled rooms, but we have to think a man in his position could do better.
What’s wrong with regular Bud? Last time we checked, it was the King of Beers. The King! Is he watching his weight? Does he lack the manual dexterity to slice up a lime and put it in his drink? Is this the cleverest PR push in the history of political journalism?
We demand answers.
