Barack Obama Likes Beer, Okay??

From a 60 Minutes interview with Obama and Biden:

"But you tried really hard to reach these people,'' [Steve] Kroft pressed. "You went and sipped beer, which I know you don't particularly like — I mean you even..."
"Steve, I had a beer last night,'' Obama interjected. "I mean, where do these stories come from, man?"
"I'm the one... [that] doesn't drink," Biden added.
"Where does the story come from that...I don't like beer?'' Obama asked. "C'mon, man."

He probably had a Stella Artois. With a bowl of granola instead of beer nuts. Because that's what fancy-pants liberal elitists do.

Update: Obama has a beer named after him in Kenya. And John McCain hates beer.
