Rep. Betsy Markey has introduced House Resolution 1297 to support “the goals and ideals of American Craft Beer Week.” Or does it? Given the current state of political discourse, I am distressed that no one has found a way to oppose this resolution and attack its sponsor. Instead, the most that has been said is that Congress has more important things to address than beer. Where is Rush Limbaugh to cut through the froth and uncover the evil Democratic purpose and plan? It should be obvious. The very same week that Democrats introduced this resolution Matthew Brace allegedly sought to sell a baby for two beers. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Beer Appreciation Week is not like those other recognized celebrations as night shift worker day. Yet, Markey insists that she simply “wanted to celebrate that this is a craft.” Mainstream media did not press her on any ulterior motive and she insisted that “[w]e wanted to celebrate entrepeneurship — and good beer!”
In the meantime, in Northampton, Brace, 24, offered to sell his baby for two over-sized beers. It is not the first case of beer-for-children, here.
What is happening to American politics when a resolution like this can get by without a conspiratorial theory aired by one party or the other? We cannot do all of the work on this blog.
