The possible takeover of Anheuser Busch by the Belgian brewer InBev has sparked the predictable political outcry.
Claire McCaskill, the junior yet up-and-coming Democratic senator from Missouri, announced that she would block the takeover. Supporting the deal wouldn’t be “patriotic.”
The senior senator from Missouri, Kit Bond, also is flat out against the deal. From our nation’s capital to Jefferson City to city hall, politicians are lining up to keep the Belgians from the brewery gates on Pestalozzi.
