Loved this headline on Yahoo! News on Friday:
Wis. GOP candidate wins beer stein contestIt seems that one of the candidates for governor was in a beer stein holding contest. It consists of holding a beer stein - full of beer, of course - at arms length. He beat three others to win- and advance to the national championship in New York. Winning time: just over four minutes.
(Go ahead. Try it. This guy is a real champion.)
He is a former congressman who hopes to be Wisconsin's next governor. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that the national competition is in September, 11 days after the primary.
WISN, channel 12, has coverage..
