Veto Every Beer?

Much consternation on the campaign trail as John McCain vowed to "veto every single beer." Was this a gaffe, as defined by Michael Kinsley as when politician accidentally tells the truth? Was it a disturbing Freudian slip from a man whose wife has lots of Anheuser-Busch money?

Or was this simply the case that McCain, like so many other guys, is pretty much always thinking about beer. Who among us hasn't accidentally dropped words like "hops" and "oatmeal stout" into our PowerPoint presentations?

Nonetheless, some people aren't taking any chances.
