Beer or Ice Tea? You be the judge.


Where I come from, nobody drinks Ice tea, without Ice cubes. I don't see any damn ice cubes in that glass.

He didn't have a stomach ailment. He had a hangover.

2. It's been established
Buckler Low Alcohol Beer, 0.5% alcohol, from Heineken Brouwerij in one of my favorite cities...

If he was AA this would be a no-no, but he is a "white-knuckle" born again dry drunk, so--basically no rules to his recovery. If he has truly alcoholic liver function a couple of these could shift him into drunk mode (behavioral change and craving more ETOH).

4. A real man would have been drinking Ice Tea. With an explanation, that I am a recovering alcholic.

5. But remember
People voted for him on the basis of "He's the one I'd rather have a beer with."

In their narrowly gendered world, ice tea might be "suspect"... tantamount to wearing a beret.

9. Keith Olbermann showed it WAS non-alcoholic beer...
And Keith's no Bush supporter. He zoomed in on the bottle and it was a brand of non-alcoholic beer.

11. A recovering alcoholic drinking non-alcoholic beer?
Like I stated before... he probably doesn't need much alcohol to get a buzz or even nearly drunk. As one stated also... non-alcohol beer has alcohol in it.

13. Iced tea doesn't have a head on it...
He's drinking beer or "non-alcoholic beer", which, in Europe has under a certain percent of alcohol content. If it's Buckler that he's drinking it does have some alcohol, but can still be called "non-alcoholic".

It just shows his arrogance, though. Now that he doesn't need to be re-elected, what happened to that sobriety he found when he found Jesus? He bragged about it. He said he never took a drink from the first day he put it down, and whether or not that is non-alcoholic beer, the image he is giving people is that he's drinking again. You'd think his advisors wouldn't let him NEAR anything that even appeared to be alcoholic in nature. But, he's the Decider. He can dicide to drink if he wants to, I guess, but it sure does seem to break the covenant of trust he had with the Christian Right Wing who seemed to be the biggest factor in his staying in office. He seems to be mocking them with every gulp. If I were one of them, I'd feel betrayed by those pictures -- alcohol or no alcohol.

You see where I'm going with this?

According to my German friend, it's a brand of non-alcoholic beer.
BTW, I wonder what he's pointing at.

17. Or "low" alcohol depending on who you ask....

Only 1% according to those who reviewed it..

http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/81/5636 /

But whatever the case, it sure doesn't have great reviews..

18. For that matter...

....there's alcohol in lots of things, since virtually anything with starch or sugar in it is going to have some tiny bit.

A bottle of orange juice straight from the supermarket is .1% alcohol, and it will go up to .3% and higher within a pretty short while in your refrigerator.
