Let’s toast the candidates

October 7, 2008

Politics corrupt everything:

Alcoholic drinks have been forbidden on Belmont University’s campus since at least 1951. The small Christian school in Nashville has decided to make an exception to the rule when it hosts a presidential debate Tuesday.

 A private school with a self-described “strong commitment to providing a Christian community of learning and service,” Belmont is allowing alcohol to be served at a hospitality tent for the news media — one of several substantial changes the college made to land the big event.

Notice where the alcohol will be — in a hospitality tent for the media. Maybe that explains some of the coverage we’ve seen lately. But I don’t think I could follow this campaign around day after day without a few stiff drinks myself.
