Campaigning on Fisherman's Wharf

A drunk African-American male approached me recently in San Francisco on Fisherman's Wharf. He rattled a large empty coffee can with some coins in it while repeating the mantra, "This is Bush Country. This is Bush Country."

Only 9% of African-Americans, give or take a few percentage points, will vote for Bush this November. Usually his campaigners work sober--notwithstanding the parties after the Republican National Convention.

Given this subjective data, I surmised that this man was likely not pro-Bush and I therefore withheld a donation to his beer fund... I mean, the Bush campaign.
