U.S. Defeats U.K. in Olivers War of 1812

Why I made a good election judge:  I didn't vote.  Couldn't decide between the two, not even on oak firkin.  (The book, by P.J. O'Rourke, is highly recommended. As is the blended firkin on handpump.)

But one example of the ballot creativity we saw.

The moment the count is announced; Steve groans and Derek cheers.  The tally: 405 to 390, or 50.9% to 49.1%, showing once again how polarized American voters are (at least when it comes to this beer).
 Steve Jones, wearing the "U.S." shirt, commiserates partly on his "loss."
And now he has to stand and recite "God Bless America."  (Well, at least it wasn't singing "Jerusalem" while standing in a tea chest....)

That was fun. Thanks for documenting the War Sandy.

Should have made him sing "My Country, 'tis of Thee" -- he'd probably know the tune. ;-)
