It Was Worth a Shot

Damn you Governor Doyle!!!
Wisconsinites can forget about getting free shots of liquor at their local grocery store.

Gov. Jim Doyle vetoed that provision of the new state budget Friday before signing the new two-year spending plan at a ceremony at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's student union.

A provision slipped into the budget at the last minute would have allowed up to 1.5 ounces of liquor to be handed out for free.

"To me, it's absurd that you walk into a grocery store and start taking shots," Doyle said.


Honestly, only in Wisconsin would this law even be contemplated. The funny thing is I can see people going from store to store getting sloshed with free samples. That would have been awesome but because of Doyle, the dream is dead.
