Widmer Brothers -- Secret Bushies?

For a couple years now, the Widmer Brothers have been getting into trouble over the design of their seasonal beer packaging, which I'll reproduce thus:



Looking closely, you may think it bears resemblance to the Bush bumper sticker from a couple years ago (which I can't seem to find online now), which had the W '04 logo. They have been accused of secretly sending red-state messages in blue-state Oregon. The Oregonian had an article about it recently (also not online), in which they resurfaced the rumors.

I have to say, it was a little bothersome to have to contemplate, so I did a little digging. Turns out both of the brothers have made financial contributions--which is where the rubber meets the road, politically. Care to guess to whom these donations were made?

Drum roll, please:

To Bill Bradbury and Ron Wyden, Dems both. (Go here and type in their names to see.) Whew.
