McCain and Palin Love Joe Six-Pack. You Betcha.

McCain and Palin Love Joe Six-Pack. You Betcha.

Gwen Ifill’s first question to the candidates at Thursday night’s Vice Presidential Debate concerned their thoughts about the $700 Billion Congressional rescue (or bailout) bill, which had not yet passed. Republican Governor Sarah Palin (net worth $1.2 Million; 2007 income $230,000) responded:

PALIN: One thing that Americans do at this time, also, though, is let’s commit ourselves just every day American people, Joe Six Pack, hockey moms across the nation, I think we need to band together and say never again. Never will we be exploited and taken advantage of again . . . .

The Governor’s running mate, John McCain. really loves Joe Six-Pack. Senator McCain’s wife Cindy controls the third-largest Anheuser-Busch distributorship in the country. Joe Six-Pack bought multi-millionaires John and Cindy McCain all their houses, cars, a fat investment portfolio and a private jet, 12 ounces at a time.

Of course, Anheuser-Busch doesn’t just use those profits to make Cindy McCain rich. It creates thousands of jobs — in Belgium and Brazil, for Jan- and João– Six-Pack and new multi-national corporate owner InBev.

    Well, more accurately, InBev cuts jobs in Brazil and Belgium while increasing profits for the executives (Brazil lost almost 20,000 jobs when InBev started consolidating plants; Belgium’s strong unions have had to fight tooth and nail to keep what they have).

    chron.ron: Enjoyed looking at your blog — great name, too.

    Frankly, I’m posting more political stuff than I would like, but this campaign inspires outrage. The election is only 4 weeks away; perhaps I can file more cultural, science, foreign affairs, and local issue posts after the first Tuesday in November.
