Jason made a contribution to buy-me-a-beer, and specifically requested that I find myself a themed Budweiser. I at first though he meant those full print colored bottles you get at monster truck ralleys and baseball games, but he assured me that a Minnesota Twins themed can does exist in two dollar form, at the liquor store. Edina Liquor to be exact. I searched around a couple places (My bicycle doesn't usually make it out to Edina), and wasn't able to find one, so I decided to make my own themed beer bottle.
In honor of the Republican National Convention that's is being hosted by our city right now, I decided to create for myself a politically themed bottle, sporting the floating heads of our two competitors in the ring, Obama and McCain. (on a side note, I believe I actually saw that makers mark has a political themed whiskey bottle out right now).
So my cutouts of Barak and John were my dates to the personal viewing of the RNC on my television. I really only caught a couple highlights, but I did see McCain speak. I'm sure I'll be voting democrat when the time comes for me to punch my ballot in November, but I've got to say, McCain is a pretty fantastic speaker. If things go awry and he ends up taking the lead, I don't think I'll be nearly as devastated as I was four years ago when Bush stole the election.
I toasted McCain when he finished his speech, and I also toasted the protesters who broke in during the middle of it. God I love this country.
