the man can't even sit down for a damn beer without being accused of a politically staged photo op. I actually have sympathy with the President on this one. (Well, having a photographer follow you around constantly and "tweeting" the resulting imagery instantly leaves you wide open to that charge, of course.)
Of course, what WE want to know:
Was the beer an all-American "macroswill" lager made by a unionized
plant, a locally-made "craft" beer (3 Stars, DC Brau, Chocolate City,
Capitol City, etc.), a "chick" beer with herbs and fruit, a complex
hoppy double India Pale Ale or "manly" barleywine, a foreign-made
artisan beer, or a non-alcoholic stage prop?
