That damned Beer

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Regulation, Beer.

Well, at least Mallard is being honest about what matters to him.

You'd think a man in Tinsley's position would want to AVOID talking about his undying hatred of anything that dilutes the alcohol. But I guess to say that would be to assume that he's capable of coherent thought.

I personally like a nice blueberry wheat. It's quite refreshing. But then, my goal isn't normally to get as hammered as possible.

Obama's "regulating everything?" Seriously? Look, Mallard, anytime you want to lay that neoconservative wholly-unregulated free-market crap on us, feel free to take a dip in the Gulf of Mexico first.

Health care, Wall Street, and the oil industry have been begging for stricter regulation for ages with their myriad abuses, and they're just the tip of the iceberg (I believe YOU yourself were just bitching about utterly unnecessary farm subsidies yesterday, Batshit). You're still free to move somewhere that openly allows powerful thugs to rob you blind, if that's what you think is freedom.

I, for one, love a slice of orange with my Blue Moon, or lemon with a good Weissbier. And yes, blueberry beer is delicious, as is a good lambic.

For Tinshley, however, anything that tastes different going in than it does coming out is grounds for him to go drive to the bar down the street.

By the way, has anyone checked out "mallardfillmore" on Twitter yet? It's about as sad as you'd expect. Only three tweets, all of them six or more months old -- two narcissistic and delusional, and one bitching that no one's talking about how ACORN are all pedophiliac pimps. After that, I suspect he dropped his Iphone in his pitcher of warm Coors, and that was the end of that.

Tinsley: Elitist beer snobs! To paraphrase Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth in Blue Velvet, "Cranberry Lambic? Fuck that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!"

Bruce Tinsely: Fapping away to Blue Velvet with a warm can of Coors since 1986 (because PBR might take a little more effort to track down.)

Perhaps if we'd had a little more regulation, Louisianna beer wouldn't be so oily.

(p.s. the problem with megabeers isn't their imitation of creative brewing in the addition of fruits and other natural flavorings; it's their imitation of the petrochemical industry in the addition of god-knows-what to create artificial heads and that patented metallic taste.)

I can think of nothing more terrifying than Bruce Tinsley controlling our country's alcohol policies.

That's the free market at work, Tinfeathers. Just don't drink it.

re: ACORN, by all means, let's get that back into the conversation. Maybe by showing the uncut videos Rachel Maddow had, with the part about how after they left the office, the ACORN rep who was asking them all those questions proceeded to call the police on them.

Tog said...

I admit I agree with Batshit about flavorings...kind of. I'm a green tea snob; I like the real thing, not the crap Lipton and Arizona put out laden with sugar and fruit flavors.

But do I need to point this out? I can still buy the straight stuff. Just like Batshit can still swill unflavored beer. That's your precious free market at work, Batshit; suckers want the fruity stuff, the market gives it to 'em. What's YOUR problem?

dlauthor: When I signed up for twitter (as @aberranteyes), I was offered the opportunity to follow Tinshley's feed. I decided life was too short and brain cells were too much of a non-renewable resource.

Kaitlyn said...

Don't they still sell the original? I only see ads for beer with no berries. (personally I think it looks and smells like pee and prefer girly drinks with fruit to mask the alcohol)

Besides, the free market said we want this. And the free market is God.

@Tog--try Honest Tea sometime. It may or may not be your thing, but sweaertagod, it's actual, legitimate bottled tea that isn't grotesquely oversweetened and tastes like actual tea. Which it is. Crazy!

Marion Delgado said...

those beers, amiright? but who thinks corporations are big? Or don't have souls?

Do liberals really believe such bizarre notions?

Perhaps this is a prescient attack on the role of Bud Lite Lime in General McChristal's firing?
