Bashir: Romney Not Presidential Material Because He Doesn't Drink

"A teenage taste of beer aside, Mitt Romney does not consume alcohol. Which begs the question, will total abstention put his candidacy, perhaps even this great nation in jeopardy?" Martin Bashir asked on his MSNBC program this afternoon.

Taking a swipe at former President George W. Bush, who also does not drink, Bashir attempted to make the case that presidents who do not drink are failures. Seriously.

"Take George W. Bush. He enjoyed a very warm relationship with alcohol until he decided to ditch the stuff after waking up with a hangover on his 40th birthday. A hangover? Hm. Perhaps the perfect word to describe the condition of the country upon the competition of his second term," Bashir quipped.
