How to tell a Democrat or Republican from their drink

Can't figure if the person you're discussing politics with is a Democrat or Republican? Take him or her to a pub and pay attention to what they order. You should have a pretty good idea where they lean after that.

Democrats are likely to drink clear spirits while their Republican counterparts will prefer brown liquor, according to research from a Republican consulting firm, National Media Research Planning and Placement.

Republicans were seen to favour traditional North American spirits such as Jim Beam, Canadian Club and Crown Royal whisky. Democrats were found to prefer spirits such as Absolut and Grey Goose vodkas.

Red state, blue state. Clear drink, brown drink. Can't we all get along? Yes we can.

Both the Democrats and Republicans show an appreciation for Bacardi and Captain Morgan Spiced Rums.
While the last few years of brinksmanship and hyperpartisanship have been dispiriting, it is refreshing to see that despite our seemingly irreconcilable political differences there is always rum for improvement.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
