And now in the department of political silliness:
The Idaho liquor board has declined to sell Five Wives Vodka in their state liquor stores, a move which they say is largely based on pricing and quality. However, they have also taken the rather extreme step of banning Idaho bars from stocking it themselves.
The issue here is the label, which was initially described as “offensive to women and Mormons”, but now the liquor board has backtracked and said it’s mostly the women that they’re worried about, and it’s just not very good vodka anyway.
Since Idaho was bringing their rape laws up to early-20th-century standards as recently as last year, this new concern for women’s rights is quite refreshing…
