Cindy McCain, Foreign Agent?

Cindy McCain -- Foreign Agent

The multinational beer brewing corporation !nBev, headquartered in Belgium, with operations in Brazil, Canada, Britain and who-knows-where, has made an angry, drunken advance unsolicited take-over bid for Anheuser-Busch, largest brewery in the U.S. of A. and brewer of Budweiser.

Budweiser! Holy Clydesdale! Is nothing sacred?

Budweiser Clydesdales

While everyone else examines the business and Wall Street angles of this all-cash $46 billion deal (as if US dollars weren’t play money in the rest of the world), and whether Busch Stadium will have to change its name, consider this:

GOP First Lady Presumptive Cindy Lou McCain is the hereditary Anheuser-Busch Princess of Phoenix, Arizona, a kingdom worth millions. If Belgian flag !nBev buys Anheuser-Busch, could it be that Mrs. McCain will be required to register as an agent of a foreign country?

Nah, me neither. Got another cold one?

Trademarks are used here to avoid brand confusion and having to write  “a certain huge St. Louis brewer” and similar coy locutions.
