Dick Leinenkugel Might Run for Senate
Wispolitics.com reports today that Wisconsin's Commerce Secretary, Dick Leinenkugel, may soon resign his post to challenge Russ Feingold for the U.S. Senate. Leinenkugel would run as a Republican, and might challenge former Gov. Tommy Thompson, who is also considering a bid. I tweeted this news, admitting that I didn't know how to pronounce the guy's name.
Little did I know that I also outed myself as a teetotaler: Leinenkugel is a beer brand, apparently. A very popular beer brand in Wisconsin. Creamy Dark is especially delicious. Or so I'm told.
A beer that is known to aficionados of the fermented grain. It's pronounced "LIE-nen-KU-gel."
At a bar, ask for a "Leinie."
So -- question -- will Dems boycott the beer if Dick Leinenkugel decides to run? He's a former P at the company...
