    McCain: 'I will veto every single beer'
    Posted: 10:32 AM ET


    (CNN) – John McCain issued a promise Tuesday that may cause a bit of unrest with a broad swath of voters:

    He'll veto every single beer?

    In a slip of the tongue while railing against excessive earmarks at the National Small Business Summit in Washington, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee inadvertently pledged to veto the popular alcoholic beverage. (Watch McCain's comments)

    "I will use the veto as needed. I will veto every single beer — bill with earmarks," he said, as rumblings from the crowd could be heard. "And every single bill that we have come across my desk I will make them famous. I will veto them, you will know their names."

    As long as he starts with Coors Light, I got no problem.

    As long as he doesn't touch my Courvoisier, I'll be fine.

    He's going to lose the college kid demographic over this.

    Damn it, this is the same bullshit people said when the Nazi's came for the Jews.


    If he comes after Miller Lite and Coors first, Bud is next. Then it's your Zima, Fudgie. And cockhead, then he'll come after your Courvoisier. Before long, all we have is old people drinks, like ... what do old people drink?

    Old people don't drink. They eat at Burger King.
