Angus King eats brie!

Last March, when Angus King was running for Senate, some of his opponents suggested that King, as a Dartmouth College graduate and Bowdoin College lecturer in addition to being a very rich guy,  was something of an elitist.

Not so!

“I don’t drink wine, I don’t know what brie is, I bowl every Thursday night and my idea of fun is to go RVing,” King told reporter Seth Koenig back then. “If that’s an elitist, this country is in trouble.”

Nite Show host Danny Cashman has now taken care of the brie question by offering him what Maine’s newest senator called “that sort of mushy stuff.” Something to take off the bucket list.
