From around 2006-2007, the blog “Crazy Apple Rumors” sometimes used the phrase “Technology! Whiskey! Sexy!” in its posts (see e.g. http://crazyapplerumors.com/2007/01/09/post-keynote-keynote-live-blog/).
I’d assumed this was a neologism, but then I saw this article from 2004 using the phrase “Democracy, Whiskey, Sexy”.
What’s the derivation of these two?
