Presidential Race . . . and Alcohol

If I didn’t see this story with my own eyes, I’d believe it came out of The Onion, but sometimes we actually manage to recognize ridiculousness in real life without the help of satire: CNN has a head start on predicting our 44th President.

According to the logic behind a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll, “a voter’s drinking preferences may also reveal their political preferences.” Check out the short article for more details.

On a side note, I’m surprised CNN dismantled the comments feature for this story. I had loaded the page earlier in the day, and the comments at the top of the page were humorously negative. I refreshed the page just now, and they’ve all disappeared (before I actually read all of them. Darn). I guess CNN got the point.
