The Official Stranger Debate Drinking Game™

posted by on September 26 at 17:25 PM

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.

don't foget, one shot when McCain says "My friends"

I've got a handle of Popov and plan to take a shot every time McOld says "Warshington" -just like my pappy used to say. Alcohol poisoning? Likely.

Man, we needed to take a drink every time someone said the work "fundamental".

I started drinking every time Obama said "That's not true" and every time McCain told a rambling, "in MY day..." grandpa type of story.
