2008 The Official Stranger Debate Drinking Game
posted by September 26 at 17:25 PMon
Created by you, our politically savvy (and, it appears, spectacularly boozy) readers. One hour to go before the debate. Get ready…
Drink every time:
McCain flashes that creepy grimace/smile.
Obama says, “Now, listen.”
McCain refers to himself as a maverick.
Barack Obama says “What you need to understand is…” or “The important thing to remember is that…” or “What these people don’t realize is that…”
John McCain mentions “change.”
McCain looks as if he expects (but doesn’t get) applause for something he just said.
Obama gets applause for saying something that normally wouldn’t deserve applause.
Take a shot whenever:
McCain talks about his POW status.
Obama says “multi-task.”
Hillary Clinton’s name is spoken (by any of the three).
Obama mentions God. (Congrats, you’re the designated driver.)
Finish drink and pour two more if:
Anyone says “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.”
John McCain tries to move his arms above his shoulders.
Do a line if:
Obama refers to past drug use and calls it “bitchin’.”
Put on lipstick and kiss your dog if:
The pitbull/lipstick/hockey mom thing is mentioned.
