I was out at my favorite Milwaukee hang out for eating wings and consuming adult beverages the other evening when some folks from one of Milwaukee’s popular downtown steakhouses walked in. If you've been to beautiful downtown Milwaukee, then you know it attracts citizens of all backgrounds, ethnicities and ideological bents. But something happened at this popular eatery the previous night that literally frosted the people who work there.
It seems that a bunch of Obama supporters -- paid campaign workers, actually -- were more than unruly and eventually had to be shown the door.
I can understand Obama workers, or McCain workers, or any other campaign workers being a little fired up, but these people were actually harassing the regular patrons.
Apparently, some of the Obama-ites were minorities -- which really shouldn’t matter, but some people (liberals) seem to think it does -- and they were loudly demanding that they get the "working man’s price" for alcohol. When the bartender explained that the prices were consistent every night and that most Republicans didn’t order top shelf unless they were willing to pay for it, the Obama workers went a little batty. According to the bartender, the Obama-ites wanted top-shelf liquor, scotch, that was $100 a glass or more, but they wanted it cheap.
“Working man prices.”
When the campaign workers started going after other patrons, that's when it got ugly. They started accusing regular folks of not voting for Obama because of racism, etc. Instead of explaining why they liked Obama so much, Team Obama members demanded that others defend Obama on their behalf.
The belligerent Obama boys got way overheated and ended up getting kicked out of the restaurant.
"You're kicking me out because I'm Hispanic!"
"No, it's because you're an ass."
What really shocked some of the employees was the fact that these people were the antithesis of professionalism. "It's like they just went out on the street and got some idiots to work for Obama," said one. "You'd think a presidential campaign would have some standards."
These folks who work at the restaurant were not right-wingers like me. I'm sure some of them were Obama supporters themselves.
