It's that time of the leap-year cycle...

...for an Election Day Drinking Game!!! I've been incubating this idea for a few days, and I think it's just about ready to hatch. Here's what I have in mind:

Before coverage starts, everyone has to pick a party. If someone picks a party that is not Democrat or Republican, they have to drink a bottle of Everclear. You should also print a copy of the CNN election map.

One sip every time...

A state is called in favor of the opposing party (make it a gulp if it's one of the states designated in yellow on the CNN election map)

You hear one of the following words or phrases:
  • Real America
  • Washington insiders
  • Failed policies
  • Maverick
  • My friends
Someone mentions:
  • William Ayers
  • Jeremiah Wright
  • Joe the Plumber (make it a gulp if they mention his record deal)
  • Obama's grandmother
  • Robocalls
  • Sarah Palin's clothing
  • Race as a factor in the election
  • Small town values
  • The Bridge to Nowhere
  • Scranton, PA
  • Riding the train
Someone is interviewed on the subject of exit polls

Tina Fay appears on the screen (make it a gulp if she is being interviewed live)

A candidate is shown committing an obvious gaffe

A beer commercial is aired

One gulp every time...

Barack Obama is accused of being (make it a sip if it's only someone talking about someone else's accusations):
  • A Muslim
  • A terrorist
  • A Socialist (make it a sip if he's only accused of supporting Socialist tax policies)
Sarah Palin's experience in energy policy is used to support her foreign policy credentials

A state goes for the opposite party indicated on the CNN election map

The news network has technical difficulties



Do you really want this man steering our country?!
