Republicans Like It Brown

Their booze, that is. Jennifer Dube of National Media Research Planning and Placement (a Republican consulting firm, we are told) has done something that passes for research and analysis and come up with a chart that links favorite alcoholic beverages to voting frequency and party alignment. Brown liquor puts you on the Republican side, clear liquor is for the Democrats. More important, however, is a strong correlation between a preference for wine and being a solid, 100% voter.

There are some exceptions, of course. Ketel One vodka is on the Republican side and Grand Marnier is on the Democrat side. Flavored vodkas seem to be a Democrat thing. J├Ągermeister is just barely on the Republican side, but is unlikely to show up at the polls. The lowest voter turnout indicator is Don Julio tequila on the Democrat side. Democrats who drink Jose Cuervo are much more likely to vote.

There is no explanation why there are no beers on the chart. My guess would have to be that beers indicate a preference for the Libertarian or Green party or one of the other minority parties that the Tweedle-Dee-Tweedle-Dum parties like to pretend don't matter.
