Drinking Problems

So Hillary Clinton hasn’t heard of Red Bull. I don’t see this as particularly newsworthy, though the good folks at Drudge have called attention to the story. I wouldn’t comment except for one thing: When I was at McCain campaign HQ a few weeks ago, for NR interviews, I couldn’t help but notice that they had a pop-dispensing machine in the lobby–the self-serve kind you see at fast-food restaurants. If memory serves, they had Coke products freely available. They definitely had Red Bull. I was struck by it because I’d never seen Red Bull in a pop dispenser before. The McCainiacs must drink a lot of it.
