Michigan AG Dana Nessel Says She Drank Too Much at Football Pregame Party
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is human. She drank too much booze before the Michigan-Michigan State game last month and she's owning up to it.
"I might be a terrible bartender," Nessel says in a Facebook post.
The tongue-in-cheek Facebook confession starts off by saying that her staff has been pleading with her to hire a crisis-management PR firm to explain away the day's events and the photo taken on October 30th.
The AG is seen slouched down in her seat at the game with a Maze and Blue Michigan cap covering her face. Hey, at least it's a Michigan cap!
What really bothers me is Nessel's erroneous use of apostrophes to pluralize words:
"Before the big game, I attended a tailgate on an empty stomach. Much to my surprise, MSU tailgate’s tend to have more alcohol than food, so I thought it seemed like a good idea to eat 2 Bloody Mary’s, since as long as you put enough vegetables in them, it’s practically a salad," Nessel said. "As it turned out, this was not a brilliant idea."
She then quips that her friends told her that Michigan "definitely won" the game (MSU actually topped U of M 37-33) and then "laid low" (technically, another grammatical mistake) before deciding it was in everyone's best interest to leave.
"...my friends recommended that I leave so as to prevent me from vomiting on any of my constituents (polling consistently shows “Roman showers” to be unpopular among most demographics)."
Nessel notes that she got home thanks to a designated driver and vows to never again drink on an empty stomach or have another Bloody Mary.
Yeah, we've all been there and we've all made those promises.
Of course, the comments are a mixed bag of people who understand that she's only human and those who are quick to criticize.
