The battle between Wisconsin's unionized workers and GOP union-busters is rolling on. But the heated rhetoric hasn't stopped one age-old tradition among the various protesters: beer drinking. It seems that Schlitz and PBR might be the great equalizer, according to Reuters:
Zog Begolli, a 23-year-old bill opponent, met four bill supporters at the Old Fashioned when they helped him get a drink at the crowded bar. "They allowed me to get closer so I could order a beer," Begolli said.
"Beer is something we can all agree on," said Randy Otto, 59, from Lake Mills, one of the bill supporters who let Begolli squeeze in.
"I was outnumbered," Begolli said. "But the conversation was civil."
