Confirming once again

He must be a Muslim! He had a beer and a pork chop.

...oh wait.
Obama wrapped up his state fair visit with a swing by the Bud Tent, where a large crowd chanted, "Four more years." He told them with a smile, "Everyone who's over 21, you gotta buy a beer," prompting someone in the crowd to yell, "Is it on you?" The president looked into his wallet as some people in the crowd started chanting, "Four more beers!" Obama told them, "I'll tell you what, except for the Romney sign, I'll buy beers for ten people."

He walked over to the crowd, but it wasn't clear whether he bought the beers or not, any transaction occurring out of the sight of reporters. But it was clear that Obama ended up with a plate with two pork chops, handed to him by Greg Lear, the president-elect of the Iowa Pork Producers. Taking a beer in a plastic cup, the president thanked the bartender and ate a quick dinner with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the state's former governor. "It's going to go well with my pork chop," Obama said.

Curious we haven't had the "Which candidate would you like to have a beer with?" debate yet. Sure, there is only one candidate you CAN have a beer with (or a cup of coffee with for that matter), but it didn't stop the press from nattering on about it when the dry-drunk was running for office.

I am liking this episode.

Its a perfect rejoinder to the Republicans who are scammed into believing nonsense (a full third think the Prez is Muslim).

Saw on Reddit - the beer seller had pictures of the Prez buying 12 beer tickets - 2 for himself & then he said - "the next 10 folks are on me!"

Damn, Berry is a good campaigner & the luckiest MoFo on planet Earth because the worst campaigners run against him.

My son says, "See what a hypocrite he is--he can't even respect his own religion, eatin' pork and drinkin' beer!"
