Do as I say, not as I do
Posted by: McQ on Friday, July 14, 2006

I'm sure that's not what he intended, but it certainly is going to be what he'll be accused of:
Beer magnate and former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pete Coors was arrested on a drunken-driving charge and is due to appear in court next week.
Why? Well, as he says:
"For years, I've advocated the responsible use of our company's products. That's still my message, and our company's message. I am sorry that I didn't follow it myself."
I wonder if he'll use his personal experience in his future messages? Might be a great plea bargain. Coming to a new beer commercial soon.

Oh, and if you think that's bad, try this:
The head of the Utah Highway Patrol's anti-DUI squad has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after crashing his patrol car.

Lt. Fred Swain was arrested June 23 after Draper police responded to a crash about 2:30 a.m. on Bangerter Highway near 400 West. Swain was found sitting in his wrecked, unmarked patrol car and talking on his phone, according to a Draper police report obtained by the Deseret Morning News Thursday.

But the real question for Pete is "Was he drinking Coors?" Somehow, I doubt it.

Sounds like the whole bunch are closet Kennedys.

Steven, good question. This part leaves it wide open:
"For years, I’ve advocated the responsible use of our company’s products. That’s still my message, and our company’s message. I am sorry that I didn’t follow it myself."
Is he sorry he didn’t use his company’s product responsibly, or is he apologizing for the fact that he didn’t use his company’s product at all?

I hope a good single malt Scotch was involved or a nice Irish Whisky.

I’ve long assumed that the standard liquor company advertismment translates to "Consume lots of our product responsibly." As for the cop, he was just doing research...
