Jonathan Goldsmith, the actor who plays "The most interesting man in the world" in Dos Equis ads, doesn't always host money for fundraisers for politicians. But when he does, they're for Barack Obama.
Goldsmith is scheduled to host a fundraiser for the Obama Victory Fund next Tuesday in Burlington, Vermont, along with the Speaker of the VT House.
Even before this fundraiser, the campaign had moved from hope to hops. From beer giveaways to promises of future beer summits, Obama is desperate for the Joe Sixpack vote. In fact, there's a relationship between beer connoisseurship and support for the president. Remarkably, ff the 25 states with the highest concentration of craft breweries, all 25 voted for Obama in the 2008 election.
So it's not the case that Obama supporters have only drank the Kool-Aid. They've also downed quite a bit of beer.
