...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
- My friends
- William Ayers
- Jeremiah Wright
- Joe the Plumber (make it a gulp if they mention his record deal)
- Obama's grandmother
- Sarah Palin's clothing
- Race as a factor in the election
- Small town values
- The Bridge to Nowhere
- Scranton, PA
- Riding the train
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)
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?!
