As heiress to her father’s stake in Hensley & Co. of Phoenix, Cindy McCain is an executive whose worth may exceed $100 million. Her beer earnings have afforded the GOP presidential nominee a wealthy lifestyle with a private jet and vacation homes at his disposal, and her connections helped him launch his political career — even if the millions remain in her name alone. Yet the arm’s-length distance between McCain and his wife’s assets also has helped shield him from conflict-of-interest problems.

Hey guys. Don’t drink this shit. Remember how the right wing fascists wouldn’t use Heinz Ketchup in 2004? BESIDES, you drank enough of it in college. Time to try new, better tasting beers that don’t support a pro-waterboarding candidate. Barack wants you to drink an IPA, a stout, anything but a Budweiser. What does Hillary want you to drink? A Mai Tai? Straight up bourbon on the rocks? Wheatgrass and vodka? I have no idea. Post in the comments what you think each candidate wants you to drink before entering the voting booth in November.
