Yes, some Republicans are douchebags!

And this ass hat is a great example of that!

The legislation, sponsored by state Sen. Bobby Singleton, D-Greensboro, would increase the amount of alcohol allowed in beer for sale in Alabama from 6 percent by volume to 13.9 percent, allowing the sale of certain imported and specialty beers in the state.

According to Free the Hops, an organization in support of the legislation, the beverages cost an average of $5 to $6 a bottle, compared to about $5 for a six-pack of 12 oz. Budweiser.

But state Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo, citing his own moral objections to drinking, claimed it would spread alcohol consumption in the state and lead young people to “blow (their) brains out with alcohol.”

“Young people might be enticed to disaster,” he said. “I don’t want it in my conscience that I put someone in a lack of safety.”

Oh shut up! The Father of this country, George Washington, loved to drink beer, porters being his favorite. And frankly, he would likely slap you face and tell you to mind your own business if he were alive!

  1. Thanks for the links.

    From an Alabama perspective, BEER is a freedom thang.

    Also, good game last fall from this Bear Bryant and Nick Saban fan. I was at THE game. Of course, I liked the first three quarters more…

    1. It is indeed all about freedom. The government should stay out of decisions like this one.
      BTW, great season y’all had, maybe a rematch this year in Atlanta?
