What We Drink: Cheap Beer

Pitchers of Pabst are half-price this evening at Ishmael's, the seedy yet cozy bar around the corner from the global headquarters of RW Enterprises, LLC. The third and -- mercifully -- final presidential debate is underway.

Joe the plumber is here. He's drinkin' free and bombed on his butt.

How's by you? This time, Goose isn't even impressed with Obama's tie. Oh, boy. Wake me when it's over.

    Reporting live here from Iahmael's, I can say that Joe the plumber has an impressive tool... belt.

  2. Now, now, Candy Man, simmer down. Joe's just a workin'. . .stiff.

  3. Shouldn't Joe the plumber be laying pipe?

    This debate isn't as toothless as those in past, and Bob Schieffer is doing a decent job moderating.

    I wouldn't wash my car with PBR.

  4. Schieffer is doing a decent job. I wish he had moderated the other two debates, but McCain's eyes are truly frightening, aren't they?

    You are a beer snob. And yet we love you.

  5. McCain completely freaked me out at the end of the debate when he walked over to Obama and maniacally repeated, "Good job, good job, good job!" He looked hepped up on goofballs.

    Health of the mother, bah! That old canard!

    I thought McCain looked like a Russian doll. He looked all compacted and waxed--with his shoulders hiked up around his ears and those marbly eyes.

  7. "compacted and waxed": perfect.

    also: locked and loaded.

  8. I gave in and watched the debate after all.... god what I won't do to complete a set!!! I have to say that I agree with Geoffrey that this debate did have more teeth, McCain was so scary, rhetorically Obama kicked McCain's butt, and I too reject PBR with the same fire used by the Pentecostal church I grew up into cast out demons or to rebuke Satan.

  9. We knew you couldn't resist, qta, because you are both a good student and a good citizen -- There really ought to be some kind of medal for the hardy few who watch every single debate, by BOTH parties, held through an entire campaign season.

    A medal -- or some very special drug.

    Bartender Peter Coffin says he sold out the PBR last night and will order up Corona for happy hours this weekend. He wants to keep the pretty boys happy.

    So it turns out that "Joe" is really a far-less-sexy "Samuel":

  11. OMG, Roxie, did you catch SNL's election special last night? Alas, I was out celebrating George's birthday (you remember him--you love George!), but a friend forwarded me a link to the Weekend Update segment. It's absolutely insane!

  12. p.s. Pay special attention to Crazy McCain Lady's comment about how Obama cavorts with terriers! She's the Emily Litella of the twenty-first century.

  13. Cavorts with terriers?!? You see how desperate Senator Obama is to try to get our endorsement. Of course, a girl does love to be pandered to, so we'll see what we can do.
