Ssshhh - Augusto Pinochet Liked Scotch (That Information Is Now CLASSFIED)
<snip>

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Don't tell anyone, but Augusto Pinochet (news - web sites) was partial to scotch and pisco sours.

This information about the former Chilean dictator's beverage preferences used to be public knowledge but is now one of 14 million U.S. secrets that were classified last year, the National Security Archive -- an independent nongovernmental watchdog group -- said on Monday.

That's up from 11 million national security secrets classified in 2002 and 8 million the year before that, the archive said in a statement, which also included the details on what Pinochet liked to drink.

That piquant information was included in a 1975 biographical sketch of Pinochet by the Defense Intelligence Agency.

3. So, then, the proper conclusion is that people who drink scotch
are murderous assholes, and proper liberals shouldn't associate with scotch or pisco sour drinkers any more.

I'm going into the kitchen now to pour my scotch down the drain, because I must maintain the purity of my liberalism.

5. Nah, I'd never pour out my scotch
Edited on Tue May-04-04 10:15 AM by Rabrrrrrr
I was just remembering the many liberals I've known who refuse to do things (innocuous things) because "bad" people did them, like people who won't listen to Wagner because Hitler liked the music, etc., and wanted to poke fun of those kinds of idiots.

My scotchboob is protected by my gun collection. :-)

p.s. - if it were BAD scotch I'd pour it out, like J&B, etc.
