Howard Dean Chooses His Poison, Maybe

2005_03_21howarddean.gifToronto Raptor forward and Green Mountain state native Matt Bonner wasn’t the only Vermonter in Toronto over the weekend. Newly acclaimed chairman of the Democratic National Committee Howard Dean was in the city to promote his party to members of the Democrats Abroad on Saturday. Besides calling Republicans “brain dead” (what anti-conservative rhetoric!), the former Democratic presidential candidate supposedly made an appearance the Duke of York pub, meeting and greeting Democratic faithful. The rumour, according to somewhat reliable sources, is that Dean attended the Democrats Abroad party after his speech at the InterContinental Toronto Hotel, putting back a few darker-hued beer (possibly Kilkenny?).
kilkenny.gifAlas, at press time, the Dean-beer-drinking rumour remains merely a rumour. Torontoist is still searching for someone in the unique position to confirm or disconfirm the beer choice of the DNC chairman. If YOU or someone YOU know has any idea of what beer Dean drinks, or if he even attended the D of Y on Saturday night, please leave a comment.
