Does The Donald Drive You to Drink?

Wine copy 3Well, no he doesn’t, but I don’t need an excuse for a drink. But the folks at The Nation magazine do. I’m on The Nation‘s email distribution list (so that you don’t have to), and the latest subscription bleg for their wine club opens as follows:

Are you looking for that perfect Merlot to pair with Donald Trump’s immigration-policy proposals? A Sauvignon Blanc to help obscure Mike Huckabee’s tweets about Black Lives Matter? Perhaps a complex Cabernet over which to discuss Bernie’s case for democratic socialism?

Let the Nation Wine Club help you find that glass (or three) of Chardonnay to pair with the next GOP debate.

Sorry Nation readers. A “complex Cabernet” won’t help with Bernie’s simplistic proposals, though I suppose they’ll be even more believable to liberals if they are intoxicated—that is, even more intoxicated than usual. I recommend sticking to simple wines, like Boone’s Collective Farm strawberry ripple.

Now I know what you’re thinking, and don’t worry. The Nation has got the important things covered. Because Grape Skins Matter.

The Nation Wine Club includes selections of wine handpicked for Nation readers—they may be organic or sustainable, from a winery that employs unionized or cooperative workers, produced in an environmentally friendly fashion, or originate in a developing nation.

You can’t make this stuff up.
