    Huh! what do you think of the fact that the McCain family is filthy rich off of beer money?

    from Wikipedia’s write up on beer distribution company Hensley & Co.:

    At the time of his death in 2000, Jim Hensley held most of the controlling stock; annual revenues were over $220 million on 20 million cases of beer sold. Cindy Hensley McCain, who had been a vice president, became the controlling stockholder — she, her children, and Andrew McCain together control 68 percent of the company — and chair of the board. Between 1982 and 2000, the company contributed $80,000 to John McCain’s campaigns; from 2001 to 2006, the company and its employees would contribute an additional $24,000 to such campaigns.

    Hensley & Co. holds a seat on the board of the National Beer Wholesalers Association, with company executives contributing heavily to it and company spokesperson Douglas Yonko the association’s Arizona director. Hensley executives have been active in successfully convincing the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau to not impose alcohol content display requirement for beer labels. In the early 2000s, Hensley sought unsuccessfully to keep liquor makers from entering the flavored malt beverage market, while it began distributing such beverages itself, including Anheuser-Busch’s Tilt.

    That’s enough info for me to vote for Bob Barr for President!
