wingnuts furious

Get Ready For Your Boycott And Counter-Boycott, Dos Equis

Obummer loverWhen the Most Interesting Man in the World holds a fundraiser for a certain Kenyan Anti-Colonial Marxist Communist Voodoo Witch, how do you think the Teatards feel about it? Happy? They feel happy, right? (Spoiler: They do not feel happy.) Well, we are getting to see this in action, because some sexy old beast is having a money-party for some other sexy beast, and so they are flocking to Dos Equis’ Facebook page to promise never to buy their Messican beer again!

Dos Equis is smart enough not to let random fucktards post to their main page (they do have a “posts by others” section, unlike your Wonket), but that does not stop the random fucktards from adding pithy comments to Dos Equis’ own posts. Let us read, oh, one, together!

Don C. Booker: I just had my las XX beer,. this bastard who claims to be the most interesting man in the world is an obama butt licker! Screw Dos Equis! Beer of Traitors..

Good comment, Don C. Booker! Apparently over half of your fellow citizens are traitors too, that must suck. Sadface!

Here are a couple comments by another dude:

But those two comments are followed by about a dozen that are all like, whoooo sexy old man and Barack Obama 4EVA, we will buy so much Dos Equis now whoooo!

And then there are a bunch more that Call Obummer a Communist, because whatever, who cares.

And that is what American politics has come to: hate-buying chicken and cupcakes and counter-hate-buying pizza and beer. We are gonna be even fatter, y’all.

    Aw crap, now I have to get some Dos Equis, which I don't even like, to support this dude, who irritates me. Fucking wingnuts…

    1. BerkeleyBear

      Try the dark, especially on tap with a lime. Either dark or amber kicks the shit out of that Corona crap (although Negra Modelo is superior as MissTaken notes).

          1. MittBorg

            Srsly. How many seconds would it take to get this shit verified? All those years of creating spiders and webcrawlers and search engines and Google, and we still have people like this who hang their bare faces out all over the InterToobz with questions that make you want to beat them so severely to the detriment of your delicate hands.

            No appreciation, I tells ya. None.

          2. MittBorg

            I'm still flabbergasted that anyone could look at a site calling itself "Literally Unbelievable" that sources the world's best-known satirical paper, and take it seriously. Maybe these commenters all have organic brain disorders?

          3. bobbert

            Actually, isn't it the case that the site collects facebook posts that take Onion articles seriously? That is, the idiots read the Onion article (perhaps second-hand), think it's true, and post about it.

            They don't actually go to LU, they just get quoted on it.

          4. MittBorg

            Good point. Still, do YOU repeat the nonsense YOU hear without checking? Just the other day someone told me Mitt Romney referred to Latinos as "taco jockeys," and I was willing to believe it, but two seconds on Google led me to spoof sites only and I had to give up my long-cherished dream of tarnishing Mitt's name (I know, as if). And these people are willing to believe any bit of flying shite that goes by.

          5. bobbert

            I try not to (unless I read it on teh Wonket, of course). And I don't think you have to worry about tarnishing Mitt's name; he seems to be all over it.

          6. Biel_ze_Bubba

            These the brain-damaged mouth-breathers who will vote for Mitt "no matter what."

            I don't think anyone's ever done research on the size of this demographic.

          7. PsycWench

            I'm inclined to think they'll vote against Obama "no matter what". I don't hear a lot of praise of Mitt except from his entourage.

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        Hey, Trump's people are looking into this. You won't believe what they're finding!
        No, really … you won't believe it.

  2. PinkoPopulist

    NOobobobama!!!!! MORE LIKE THE LEAST INTERESTING MAN IN THE WORLD! Good thing I don't drink messican piss water anyway!

    1. TribecaMike

      Coincidentally, messican piss water is the main ingredient of the Chiclets that poor kids sell on the streets of border towns to tourists. They sell them at Walmart as well (the Chiclets and the kids).

        1. PinkoPopulist

          Me thinks you doth be too generous. Natty Ice maybe, or perhaps beast ice.

          I wonder what ol' Mittens thinks of these poors and their high-alcohol content beers.

          1. CindynEncinitas

            OMG! Driving through Rancho Santa Fe on my way to work one day, I saw a bottle on the side of the road… champagne bottle! Well done, RSF litterers, I thought!

          2. Lavenderp

            "I wonder what ol' Mittens thinks of these poors and their high-alcohol content beers."

            He thinks they are godless gentiles.

        2. PinkoPopulist

          Anheuser Busch is also owned by Belgian euro-socialists, so I'm going to assume that's a no-no also. Original Coors maybe?

        3. Texan_Bulldog

          Nah…it's PBR, which coincidentally also happens to be the same acronym as the Professional Bull Riders.

          As in, "Betty, go get me another PBR so I can watch the PBR on teevee! Buuuurrrp….."

      1. BerkeleyBear

        Really? Tecate with lime and salt strikes me as too authentic for these bozos. Coronitas (the little bottles not sold in stores) by the bucket in some b.s. chain restaurant would be my guess.

        BTW, the new tie in is to do a Chelada style thing by sticking a coronita upside down in a margarita – sounds utterly disgusting to me.

        1. TootsStansbury

          Well my Tejas sister always told me they stick Tecate cans in roadkilled Opossum's paws so. and ew what a way to screw up a rita.

          1. BerkeleyBear

            I'm guessing that's a commentary on the roadkill and Messicans in the minds of the geniuses who do that sort of stuff. Roadkill possums are gross – although a stuffed armadillo with a beer might be a little bit amusing.

          2. TootsStansbury

            Much to my chagrin, I realized this morning I confused Tecate with Lone Star! Ahhhhhhh! And I wasn't even drunk. Yet.
            ETA and it isn't possums it's armadillos! What a load of derpiness my comment is!

        2. thebeatgoeson

          I found a margarita recipe that had beer in it and it was actually really good. Corona would work great because the beer can't have much taste, but somehow it cuts the sweetness and mellows out the tequila taste. I suppose if you really love a strong tequila taste, though, it wouldn't be to your liking.

          1. BaldarTFlagass

            I posted this below:
            beer margaritas:
            12 oz tequila
            12 oz club soda (or 7-Up if u like it sweeter)
            12 oz frozen limeade concentrate
            12 oz Dos Equis (or Mexican beer of your choice)
            stir in appropriately-sized pitcher, serve over ice, with or without salt per your preference. You won't really even notice the beer. Very refreshing.

        3. CindynEncinitas

          Chelada style in Cabo is to pour the Corona in a cup over ice and put salt on the rim. It's the preferred method at the swim-up bars, dontcha know?

    1. Native_of_SL_UT

      The advertising seems to promote this beer as an elitist drink, so, yeah, I'm thinking they already were avoiding it.

        1. actor212

          Really?

          Dos Equis is smart enough not to let random fucktards post to their main page (they do have a “posts by others” section, unlike your Wonket)

          Editrix just called us "random fucktards"…

          I'm offended by the "random" and demand an apology or I shall boycott her brand of her cigarettes!

  3. SexySmurf

    this bastard who claims to be the most interesting man in the world is an obama butt licker!

    I don't always lick butts, but when I do….

  4. Joshua Norton

    While the streets of Birmingham and Selma were the sites of the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s, the right wing battles of the 21st Century are being fought by eating fast food and drinking the right kind of beer – because America, that's why.

    1. weejee

      To celebrate Teaparty bankruptcy, I'll boycott Hostess Twinkies since they too are in bankruptcy and were not saved by WillardBain. Speaking of also and toos, or twos, it has probably been forty-two years since I last ate a Twinkie (college years muchies, perhaps). But hey it's the thought that counts, amirite?

      1. bobbert

        You know, I'm sure I must have eaten a Twinkie at some time in my life, but I'm damned if I can remember it.

          1. Biel_ze_Bubba

            As a kid, used to like the pies, until I read the ingredients list on a "cherry" pie. The expected collection of sugar, corn syrup, gums, preservatives, red dye #1, artificial cherry flavor … and grapes. Not one fucking cherry.

            On the front of the package: "Made With Real Fruit!"

            Haven't touched one since.

    2. MittBorg

      And you know Chick-fil-A totally rolled over for Teh Gheys, right? Boy are the wingnuts mad. They can't even eat shitty fast food for hate n e moar.

      1. DemmeFatale

        I think they were worried that cities, (like Chicago), would keep them from planting their shitty "restaurants" everywhere.
        The damage has been done. They are the Wal-Mart of fast food.

        (BTW: their stupid "Eat Mor Chikin" ads just make me sad.)

    3. mayor_quimby

      Good thing all my favorite vodkas are made by (former) commies. As a libtard am I allowed to drink Tito's, since it's made in Tejas and all?

  5. snarkusbachmann

    Gawd dangit, I hate Dos Equis, but now I have to head to the store to buy a case of it. Maybe my Socialist ass can give it to the homeless guys downtown.

  6. Preacher_Griz

    We need to be boycotting muslim beer, jewish beer (except for Israeli jewish beer) and beer from ALL SOCIALIST EUROPEAN countries and Antarctica AND FINALLY all United Nations beer!

    Boycott!!!!

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      There must be some way to let the knuckle-draggers know that their Bud is now made by InBev, a Eurocommie corporation.

    1. Tequila Mockingbird

      Imagine if he'd shilled for NASCAR? This country would have imploded upon itself like the LOST island in the series finale.

        1. miss_grundy

          Actually, I only have one Republican in mind but he's doing a pretty good job of imploding all by his little lonesome self. On to the debates!

  7. rickmaci

    Sorry. I was running low on Dos Equis so I ran out to buy a case. Now what were you saying about Mittinez Pesos, the most uninteresting man in the world? Oh yah, sheep count him to go to sleep.

    1. sullivanst

      Besides why is the Million Mom's Club totally silent on this?

      Still trying to work out exactly how to represent this is a stunning victory.

    2. Callyson

      Along with re-evaluating funding to anti-gay marriage activist groups, Moreno said, Chick-fil-A has agreed to amend its corporate policy to include sexual orientation in its anti-discrimination policy.

      Oh, the wingnuts will really lose it if this goes down.

      BTW, is Chick-fil-A's food any good? I've never been there, but if they make this change, I'll have to take an off-diet day and check them out…

      1. anniegetyerfun

        I was wondering because I have heard people wax rhapsodic about it, but a friend of mine just ate a sandwich there a couple of days ago and confirms that it is dry, too light on the pickles, and definitely not worth the money.

      2. ProgressiveInga

        Years ago before I started my own personal girlcott of Chik-Fil-A, it was the only fast food I would eat, albeit rarely. You can order your fried Chik on a whole wheat bun and feel a wee bit righteous. Fried tastes better than the grilled, b/c well, fried…… Waffle fries taste good when they're hot but feel like a ton of bricks in your gut during the digestion process…..Bon appetit!

      3. miss_grundy

        When traveling from Chicago to Miami to visit my aunt until she died, I would stop at a Chick-Fil-A and buy their chicken fingers and waffle fries. The dogs and I would pig out. My boys did love their chicken. Yep, I miss them, one died in 2008 and the other in 2009.

        1. HELisforHEL

          My old girl is missed daily, too.
          Happy to have a newly minted pooch after a year without, but old dogs are never forgotten. Or replaced. :-)

      4. CindynEncinitas

        It's just a chicken sandwich. Like what you order at jack in the box if you're feeling a little queasy. Big deal.

    3. Guppy

      This has me wondering, though: is it now OK to patronize my local Chick-Fil-A, now that they've gone from "evil" to "neutral?" And, if so, what about Target?

      What are the ethics of boycotts (beyond CommieMommie's opinion, which Our Editrix mentioned earlier)?

      1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

        I don't know. PBR was from Milwaukee, WI, which is known for their socialist (hand it to the Mexicans, but Drug Cartels are very capitalistic). And they make malt liquor, and we all know who drinks that.

        If there was only a good non-hippy, non-socialist beer left in the country. I guess the 'baggers will have to content themselves with home brew, like our president…, wait a minute…..

      2. Terry

        Lone Star or perhaps the worst beer on Earth, Red White and Blue. Aptly named, isn't it? In college, we could gather the change from the bottom of our purses and buy a six of Red White and Blue, sometime more if it was on sale. It is absolutely, positively the worst beer I've ever tasted…and as I attended State universities, I've tried a lot.

        1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

          Lone Star is owned by Pabst (it was own by Olympia when Pabst bought Olympia), so, again, despite the name, drinking it will make you a commie druggie gay hippie. I guess Coors is the only beer that is proud to be American anymore.

          1. Biel_ze_Bubba

            Do they still sell generic econo-beer? I doubt it would consistent from batch to batch, but if you're buying this, you aren't buying for the taste anyhow.

          2. Biff

            No idea. Even though I was a poor when I was drinking beer, I avoided the generics and lower-class offerings, except the occasional Brown Derby or Lucky(I only bought it for the riddles under the cap, I swear)!

        2. glasspusher

          Agreed. My roomies bought a case of red white and blue, cold, for five bucks once back in the eighties. It had particles floating around in it. No thanks! Stegmeier (sic?) is also pretty harsh.

  8. Preacher_Griz

    btw…it was not corporate media that made This Most Interesting Man a millionaire… it was the media!

    The media is the DESTROYER that is empowered by the Hand Maiden of the Beast!!!!!

    1. OneYieldRegular

      I was going to say, this boycott is going to be incredibly easy for Mitt, of whom one can't even ask the most important question of every presidential election: Who would you most like to have a beer with?

    2. Terry

      Fun fact. There is one State Store in downtown Salt Lake City that sells beer, wine, and liquor. (You can find a few wine shops out in the suburbs.) The local Mormon stakes, which are like parishes I guess, post guys in cars outside the State Store to see if they recognize anyone trying to go in quietly and by alcohol.

      1. Negropolis

        I'm insanely interested to see what happens to SLC and the rest of Utah in say, 30 years, with the explosion in the growth of Catholic Latinos, particularly as they get active in local and state politics, there.

          1. Negropolis

            Yes, but Utah is getting more hispanic in spite of this. The migration to Utah is obviously outpacing white (even Mormon) birthrates. Who knows how long this will last, but it's empirically clear that Utah is becoming less white and less Mormon.

          2. Steverino247

            That's good for Utah unless the Hispanics get converted to LDS, which does happen occasionally. Mormons better start mowing their own lawns if they know what's good for their need to control every fucking thing around them.

          3. Not_So_Much

            SLC (or as we refer to it from just North of there "Idaho's Sphincter") itself is actually pretty secular and progressive. Significant LGBT community, music, dancing with naughty bits touching and everything. But the Mo's completely own state politics. It would take a major population turnover to upset the machine they've established there.

          4. Negropolis

            The LDS church, though, still controls a lot of the power even in SLC proper. Hell, their church is the middle of downtown and they have their fingers in such about every pie you can think of.

            Again, I'm just interested to see how they'll react to changing religious demographics. Will they panic like evangelicals have in some states and just entrench more, or will they retire into the distrance into their own communities? I'm really wondering if what will happen there is like what happened in the South where the white population panicked, coalesced and essentially gerrymandered themselves into a permanent majority against the large black minorities.

  9. bumfug

    Good luck wingnuts! Did ya hear that Chick-Fil-A caved and won't support anti-gay groups any more? I guess One Million Fatass Moms just aren't enough.

    1. Beowoof

      I have been buying Sam Adams, as it isn't produced by a foreign conglomerate brewing company and it is one of my meager little efforts to buy from American companies. And the Oktoberfest is awesome. But in this case a case of Dos Equis maybe on tap.

      1. C_ARRGH_Eature

        I brews me own beer, but that was just to piss Newell off.

        Now-a-days, I be buyn' Heavy Seas & Flying Dog Ales, when the Rum's all gone.

        1. Biel_ze_Bubba

          I've been waiting for an opening, and that will have to do. From the NYT :

          As the campaign plane landed in Dallas on Tuesday night, Mr. Romney got on the intercom to welcome home two reporters whose families live in Texas, one from CNN, the other from NBC News. He said he was sorry to miss a planned pool party that one of the reporters planned to hold in the evening. “I was a little offended not to be invited for gobbler cobbler,” he said, playfully.

    1. glamourdammerung

      Stay angry, my friends.

      Especially the ones in "Red States" since they are even less likely to have health insurance for the inevitable heart problems.

  10. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Sort of off topic, but Jonathan Goldsmith is not allowed to do the accent outside of Dos Equis promotional work.

    And why is it that Jews are always hired to play Mexicans? You would think it would be cheaper to hire a Mexican.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Is he supposed to be Mexican? I assumed he was one of those Germans by way of Argentina or something.

      1. Charlie_Foxtrot

        My ex had a cousin from Mexico, 100% Mexican, working as an actress in LA. She couldn't get roles as a Mexican because she has light brown hair and green eyes, and therefore didn't "look Mexican."

  11. James Michael Curley

    Last night on Rachel Maddow's show she attributed something regarding the Romney Baby Ad to Wonkette. Anyone see that and what was the full statement?

      1. James Michael Curley

        Thanks, I knew the Wonkette post, I just missed Rachel's comment about it because I did not have my hearing aides in.

    1. Biff

      She also said something like "hello babies" was a meme brought to prominence by teh wonkette. I always thought that was Dr. Johnny Fever, but whatever.

    1. zippy_w_pinhead

      Meh, I'll drink it long before the big three (I'll drink water before that), but there are far better beers out there

  12. Antispandex

    You know, I don't drink it because it's not really that good of a beer. NOW I want to buy some to piss off my in-laws. What to do, what to do….

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      Buy some and make micheladas http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelada
      or beer margaritas:
      12 oz tequila
      12 oz club soda (or 7-Up if u like it sweeter)
      12 oz frozen limeade concentrate
      12 oz Dos Equis (or Mexican beer of your choice)
      stir in appropriately-sized pitcher, serve over ice, with or without salt per your preference. You won't even taste the beer hardly. Very refreshing.
      This has been fucking people up at the Flagass residence for years (fortunately there are plenty of extra beds)

    2. FlyOverGirl

      Buy it – piss off the in-laws. Give it to the food bank – piss off Mittens.

      (Or piss off the needy with Dos Equis.)

  13. glamourdammerung

    What is it with the Republican fixation with President Obama's ass and having him force things down their throats?

  14. BaldarTFlagass

    Hey, I've still got two in the fridge! Here's to you, Most Interesting Commentariat on the Interwebs!!! Stay snarky!!!

  15. pdiddycornchips

    Teatards are not very bright but they're smart enough to not spend their government checks on expensive beer. Not when prescription pills are covered by medicaid and the meth dealer's two trailers away.

  16. BigSkullF*ckingDog

    I think all our beer now is owned by Belgians, Canadians and South Africans. They probly all have socialisms and evil healthcare, yes? Better switch to wine like the … oh wait.

            bobbert be correct, ye SaltyDog! It's pretty much a watered-down mix of weak beer and Rum and named after the Limey Admiral Vernon as made his Salin' Men drink the stuff. Grog came from the Admiral's nickname - "Old Grogram"- as he allus wore a Grogram cloth coat.

          I didn't even know that today is "Talk Like a Pirate Day" & now it's almost over & it seems kinda late to get into it.

          And I live in pirate country too- Stede Bonnet was hanged here & Blackbeard famously blockaded the harbor… Supposedly, Ann Bonney grew up near here & was smuggled back here after being sentenced to hang in Jamaica…

    1. Charlie_Foxtrot

      Your comments are either not excellent enough or not profane enough.

      I personally try to go for the fucking profanity rather than excellence, because what the hell.

  17. SmutBoffin

    And here I am, drinking Grain Belt and eating fried rat (with a single secret herb and no spices at all).

    I wish I had enough money to purchase the products that I want to boycott in the first place!

  18. vodkamuppet

    DAMN MESSICAN TRAITORS, GETTIN ALL TRAITORY WITH…

    Wait, no. I can't even make this nonsensical comment make sense in an ironic way. Can we start saying ret*rded again please?

  19. kittensdontlie

    Thank you MIMW! Dos Equis should give me the medicinal effects I crave, that Doctor Pepper was unable to provide.

  20. Blueb4sinrise

    Imma gonna need a spreadsheet to keep track of what to buy/not buy.

    Come to think of it, no I don't because I'm a poorz and buy the cheapest shit anyway.

  21. LibertyLover

    I thought that once you got rich, you could support anyone you wished. I didn't know that there was an unwritten contract that said you had to turn into a dick and not let anyone else up the ladder of richyness.

  22. randcoolcatdaddy

    I'm waiting to form an opinion on this until the Obama versus Romney Slurpee cup results become more clear at 7-11.

  23. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Conservatives do make it hard to eat. I can't have Dos Equis or Dr. Pepper, because they are secular socialist products, I have to eat Chic- fil-a because it is not. I have no idea what I will do when they figure out the Jolly Green Giant believes in Global Warming and is gay.

    1. Steverino247

      There was a poster in the '70's I saw that had the JGG, hands-on-hips, pissing on the valley, going HO, HO, HO!

      I want that poster still…

  24. LibertyLover

    Isn't it a little passive aggressive to boycott companies that don't have the same politics as you? Now, boycotting actors for who they support… that's mature.

  25. glamourdammerung

    I thought boycotts were "just like Hitler".

    After all, that is what the teabaggers screamed about a certain chicken sandwich place that was funding groups advocating murdering homosexuals.

  26. Generation[redacted]

    I'm going out on a limb and guess that Humboldt Hemp Brown Ale probably does not support Romney.

  27. banana_bread

    It cracks me up that the best outrage the conservatives can come up with is ACTORS LIKE OBAMA OH NOES

    1. Generation[redacted]

      You have your actors who like Obama, and then you have your actors who yell at empty chairs. There is no middle ground.

        Spuds, God or Dog whatever ever deity turns your crank it is OK by me. That comes from being raised Unitarian.

  28. Generation[redacted]

    Let's settle this once and for all. Put Obama on one side of the Room, Romney on the other, and Spuds McKenzie in the middle. See which one Spuds goes to.

    Years ago on a vacation to Mexico, I was in the restroom using a urinal along a wall full of them. Two next to each other had been marked inoperative by placing red tape over them, in an X.

    As I was washing my hands, the guy next to me, with a heavy accent says "See? That where Dos Equis is made."

  31. LibertyLover

    Just got a robocall from Rmoney and they said Obummer is up by 5% since Rmoney fouled his own nest… They wanted $3…. I told them to go hit up his $50K a plate friends.

  32. TribecaMike

    I still haven't gotten over Corona displacing the infinitely better Indio Lager on store shelves in the early eighties. Damn you Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma Brewery and your satanic Heineken masters!

  33. TootsStansbury

    OT I have been given a new assignment at work, which is good. But I have to come up with a new way to appear concerned and serious while furtively posting to Wonkette on my phone. No worries, I am a problem solver!

    Uh that Social Worker ad babby is creepier than the last one or am I imagining things?

  34. chascates

    Mr. Goldsmith was interviewed by Terry Gross on Fresh Air just a few days ago. He based his Dos Equis character on his great friend the late Fernando Lamas, a known Hispanic. He also told Terry he was advising Putin and worked in a comment that Sarah could see Putin from her house.

    BEHEAD EVERYONE WHO DOESN'T AGREE WITH UNINFORMED IDIOTZ!!1!!!!

    1. TribecaMike

      Did she ask him if his parents were alcoholics, and if so how did that influence his becoming an actor? She's big on that alky thing.

      1. chascates

        No, just the normal schmoozing with a celebrity. He was pretty low-key, said he moved to Vermont for privacy, hammed it up a little.

    1. NellCote71

      And meth. Don't forget the meth. I lived out of the country for most of the aughts. Imagine my surprise, when returning that I could not buy OTC sinus meds.

  35. OneYieldRegular

    Boycotting a Mexican beer because a commercial actor dares to support the candidate of his choice? Political impotence of this caliber couldn't be helped by a truckload of Bob Doles throwing out free life-time supplies of Viagra.

  36. mavenmaven

    HAHAHA after Romney said that the increase of Hispanics as a voting bloc would be bad for the country (on that May tape), this guy is threatening a boycott of a Mexican beer? HAHAHAHA Next will the teabaggers will boycott enchiladas?

      1. Lavenderp

        I think that's just the Mormon meme du jour…

        "Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly; And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine." (LDS Doctrine & Covenants)

  37. C_ARRGH_Eature

    Aye, I niver drink Beer, but when the Rum is All Gone I'll be Drinkin' Dos Equis, by Damme!

    Pillagin' be Thirsty Work!

    The man was shot, ACTUALLY SHOT, by John Wayne himself! How boss is that? Can you not feel the boss?

  39. BerkeleyBear

    This dude is a Jewish New York based actor with a history of supporting progressive issues. They just now are cluing in to the fact he might support Obama? Really?

  40. Biff

    23+ years of sobriety down the drain to support these fuckers. Thanks a lot.

    I remember some Coors boycott years ago, had something to do with their stance on the gheys, and everyone was saying hey, their spokesmodel has the ghey, whah? Whatever, he (Mark Harmon) does not have the ghey, he has my former pretend girfriend Pam Dawber, she of Mork and Mindy fame, as his wife since like 1987, so NOT GHEY, OK?

    Where was I? Oh yeah–buy Dos Equis, y'all.

  41. Steverino247

    From the Web:

    Advertising work:

    Beginning in April 2007 and continuing through 2012, Goldsmith had been featured in a high profile television ad campaign, promoting Dos Equis beer.[7] The campaign, which transformed Goldsmith into "the most interesting man in the world", has been credited for helping to fuel a 15.4 percent sales increase for the brand in America in 2009 and also made him into a very popular meme.[5]

    Charity work:

    Goldsmith supported the S.A.B.R.E Foundation,[8] whose mission is to protect and preserve the Siberian Tiger.

    Goldsmith’s other charitable causes are Free Arts for Abused Children,[9] which pairs artists with children in protective custody, and the Stella Link Foundation,[10] a group calling attention to child sex trafficking in Cambodia.

    OK, so the fascists want to shit all over a guy who does that well for a business and does such nice things for kids and tigers. Fuck 'em.

  42. Poindexter718

    *He once had his friends hold a gay classmate down while he gave him a haircut–it turned out fierce and he's been cutting it regularly ever since.
    *He once completed a marathon in just under four hours, a new personal best for the Wisconsin congressman he was carrying on his back.
    *In his youth, he was known to dress up like a police officer … whenever authorities came to him complaining the crime rate was too high.
    *His dressage pony isn't a write-off, it's a capital gain.
    *He won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for discovering a safe means of handling Santorum.
    *When he issues a press release about events that have yet to transpire, it's accurate anyway.
    *One stern look from him is capable of rendering Newt Gingrich speechless, Michelle Bachmann sensical and Mitt Romney truthful.
    *His car refuses to ride in an elevator and instead takes the stairs–two at a time.
    *Not only are his tax returns public, they regularly top the best-seller lists and have been translated into 28 languages.
    *Sasha and Malia think HE is adorable.

    1. TribecaMike

      I've had to log back in at random times for the past couple of hours. But, as I'm sure Jonathon Goldsmith would agree, it beats digging ditches.

    1. TribecaMike

      These morons probably think the stay-tab beer can was invented by, er, that Italian guy, uh, you know, that guy. Shit, what is his name?

  43. ttommyunger

    So this character is based on Fernando Lamas? A character so self-involved he was quoted as saying he'd rather look good than feel good. A character so in love with himself he reportedly screamed his own name every time he came? That isn't very interesting to me. And Jonathan Goldsmith, fer Chrissakes? I'm beginning to suspect things aren't always as they seem. What next, pro Wrestling rigged? I'm glad I quit drinking.

  44. BlueStateLibel

    So the cons actually think the Most Interesting Man in the World would support the candidate with all the personality of a wet dishrag? Not going to happen.

    1. TribecaMike

      Sounds like a regular guy, just like all the other regular working stiff guy and gal actors I've know. He lucked out, which is great, and which should be celebrated by the free marketeers out there in Hatesville, USA. I suspect the disconnect isn't just political, but envy of people who are talented.

  45. notgross

    Does this mean they are going to stop going to see Hollywood films because most of the film industry is in the tank for Obama? Maybe now I can watch a movie without a Teabagger reading the captions out loud.

  46. StillGoinGreen

    MUHFUCKAH!!! With the good ole US of A going 51/49 right now, the corporate corporations of USA, Inc. are now in a win-win situation! If they piss off one side, the other side rushes out to "show our support", thereby increasing their bottom line… until Krapdashian farts again – then… crickets!

    OT – Did my "muhfuckah" still sound too whitey? Dammit, thought so!

    1. TribecaMike

      I really wish PBS would rerun a program Fred Rogers produced in the late 70's called "Old Friends… New Friends," about interesting and often oddball Americans. One episode about a small town drunk who regularly spent his weekends in the drunk tank but who was also a superb folk artist (and who's work probably sells for hundreds of thousands now on the "naive art" market) was especially memorable. I'll never forget Fred and that crazy old chain-smoking coot just kicking back at the guy's trailer and talking honestly about life, philosophy and inspiration.

      1. fuflans

        HA! that's great!

        i have a handicapped brother who adored mr. rogers and we got invited on the show – i think it aired around that time, i was maybe 6 or 7 – but the whole discussion on the episode was people who are different and how they look at the world in different beautiful ways.

        always had a soft spot for that man.

        1. TribecaMike

          Cool. Fred was one of a kind. I never really appreciated him until I got older. And continuing the beer theme, he was from Latrobe, PA, one-time home of the Rolling Rock brewery.

  47. Negropolis

    OT: Go over to Daily Kos Elections and read through the Live Digest. Poll after poll in state after state is breaking for the president in very big ways, and some of these were taken before Mitt Romney's Marie Antoinette moment. Some are even saying this could turn into a wave election.

  48. valthemus

    "… hate-buying chicken and cupcakes and counter-hate-buying pizza and beer."

    It's like some kind of slow political mitosis taking place… we won't even need a civil war, pretty soon we'll just physically divide into two countries like an amoeba in pond water. Which is fine as long as the half I'm on gets BBC America and the Ritz Cracker factory.

  49. mrblifil

    Haha wingnuts too dumb to point what ought to be their biggest complaint: as a member of SAG/AFTRA Goldsmith is simply acting as a union thug/stooge propping up his Chicago-style political boss.

    So here you go, mouth breathing dick fantasizers…it's on the house.

      1. TribecaMike

        I watched an episode of that pathetic show, which was just another excuse to show soft-core scenes, accompanied by wannabe David Mamet* dialogue. Family values my Aunt Fanny (I actually did have an aunt Fanny, and she was a proud Eleanor Roosevelt liberal).

        *Another Republican asshole.

  50. Chet Kincaid_

    OT, since this is just the nightly MSNBC live-blog: I know that everybody has already commented about this, but it is simply delicious that Romney has been hoisted on the petard of his remarks in the very quiet room he insisted "you people" shouldn't be anywhere near when such things are discussed.

  51. Chet Kincaid_

    Yet another MSNBC OT: You know, when a woman of a certain age hops around the kitchen on one foot, dances in the rain, or grooves on some EWF in her earbuds, I just want to pop a pill and hop in the bathtub!

  52. eaglewon

    Dos Equis is a Mexican beer, and Obama has 70% of Hispanic vote, so I'm sure they'll maintain they're sales, besides, most of the angry tards don't even drink Dos Equis, they just firing people and ruining businesses.

  53. DahBoner

    Nah, DosEquis is mostly side-boob and blurry shots.

    All the kids have moved on to the more hard-core TresEquis and Redbull.

    In 3D…

    1. TribecaMike

      The actually funny people at Cracked.com needn't worry about their job security. But I do see bright futures for these dimbulbs at SNL, where they've never learned when to end a skit and Lorne Michaels has never seen a right wing boob he wouldn't suckle until it has the texture of a Slim Jim left out in the sun for fifteen years.

    2. glamourdammerung

      Republicans do not always tell jokes. But when they do, they involve rape, murder, advocating treason, and/or bigotry.

      Stay classy, my friends.

      At first I thought it was a 'shop, but all the photos from the event have his face way darker than the rest of him… Oh, well- he can't look faker than he is…

  54. tessiee

    Hi guys,

    Is anyone else still getting that weird error message?
    It goes away eventually, but I have to click NO somewhere between 16 and 20 times (i counted).
    Is this a thing now?

    1. BloviateMe

      YES…I had to quit coming here at work…it started with that god damn Clint chair story. I don't get it at home, but at work is now off the table…I'm offically vexed.

  55. Negropolis

    OT: Oh god. The conservative Detroit News just released another Michigan poll (second of today) with Obama leading 52 – 38, up from 48 -42 taken a month ago. This thing is through. Like I said last week, we're pushing 2008 margins, here.

    1. TribecaMike

      That and the Senate polls are great news. Now on to the House, and during the next four years the SCOTUS.

      Being that I never trust good news, I'll be manning the phones and stuffing envelopes again for the next couple of months and invite everyone to do their part. Unless Perpetual Mississippi is one's idea of fun…

      1. Negropolis

        No doubt. Now is no time to slow down. Now is the time to be greedy. I want the House back, and I want it now. I want a total "refutation" of the ideology of folks like Romney.

    2. ingloriousbytch

      Don't say that. The last thing we need to do is get comfortable.

      You don't punch at your opponent. You punch THROUGH them. We still have an ocean of Jim Crow voter suppression to punch through.

      ETA: Sorry for the snark-free post. Buttsecks, truck nuts, fapping.

    I don’t always host fundraisers for Presidential Candidates, but when I do, do you really think I would be so stupid as to host a fundraiser for the most completely uninteresting teetotaler on the planet whose catch-phrase should be "I don't always drink lemonade, but when I do it's lemon, wet, good?” http://bulliesforromney.tumblr.com/image/31905131

      I have been dealing with the same it appears to be a script error at the wonkette related to the Mormon videos that have been posted.

  59. Lascauxcaveman

    Negra Modelo is one of my favorite German Alt-style beers (seriously, it's right there int the Beer Judge Certification Program, of which I am a graduate). Prosit!

    But tomorrow, I'm going to buy a case Dos Equis just because. It's been forever since I've had one, and I can't remember if I like it, but I always like to be the guy who proves there no such thing as bad publicity.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      I don't even drink beer but I bought a six-pack at the supermarket this weekend. I just ASSUMED there would be a boycott. And it never hurts to have an interesting man in the refrigerator.

      1. HistoriCat

        And it never hurts to have an interesting man in the refrigerator.

        I believe Mittborg can recommend some good recipes in that case.

  60. TribecaMike

    These schmos need to make up their minds — you either worship corporations or you don't. Geez, it's not rocket science (unless you're talking about General Dynamics, Teledyne, Aegis Defense Services, McDonnell Douglas, ad infinitum).

  61. Lot_49

    Conservatards, listen carefully: "actors" are people who play "roles" in exchange for "money." What they do in their personal lives may or–this is important–may not reflect their personal beliefs. E.g. Kelsey Grammer, Victoria Jackson, etc.

    Plus, Dos Equis is owned by Heinekin, and is no more an American product than Budweiser.

  62. HogeyeGrex

    Apparently over half of your fellow citizens are traitors too, that must suck.

    Yeah, and that from a guy who I suspect has a Confederate flag on his wall and/or car.

    Oh Goddess Irony, thou art wounded mortally.

  63. TribecaMike

    Dos Equis alcohol content: 4.8%

    Nate Silver's prediction that the president will be reelected: 94.4%

    Stay frosty, my friends.

  64. Sassomatic

    I'm confused, Just recently, I seen to remember something about boycotting a company because of their political stance being a violation of FREEEDOMMMS OF SPEACH!1!!11!11 Have these people not heard of the constitution?

  65. Biel_ze_Bubba

    Furious wingnuts will stop buying Dos Equis.
    They will also stop buying Jay-Z's music.

    Can the Republic survive these cosmic blows to interstate commerce?

  66. SoBeach

    Dos Equis Amber is no Negra Modelo, but it's still pretty good.

    Yeah, but a Dos Equis Amber draft beats a Negra Modelo in a bottle.

    Gracias a Dios my local cantina doesn't have Negra Modelo on draft. I'd never leave.

  67. aboutheagora

    I don't drink that beer out of spite. I sent them a commercial idea for The Most Interesting Man in the World that was pure gold and in their response they acted like they caught me drunk and pissing in their swimming pool while their kids were playing in it. The concept was simple, "when he catches a home run ball, HE signs it and throws it back to the player". Maybe it was more like comic silver but hey like Carlin says, fuck you, you didn't think of it.
