Elections 2012: Presidential Debate Drinking Game
Nero fiddled while Rome burned; we can all sip our way through the debates, right?
Thursday, October 11, 2012
Had we put this game together before the first presidential debate, where a confident Mitt Romney smirked his way through half-truths on everything from the size of the deficit to taxes to health care, where Democrats waited and waited (oh how they waited) for Barack Obama circa 2008 to just show up, and where the Twittersphere implored a barely conscious Jim Lehrer to “sack up” while moderating the spectacle…
Well, we all would have been drunk off our asses within 10 minutes.
Everything in moderation, people. Rather than taking full gulps as you play the Weekly’s Presidential Debate Drinking Game, take sips. Every time Romney invokes his sudden love of the middle-class, make it a sip. Every time the president references the auto industry, make it a sip. Every time someone at your viewing party yells “Oh you are so full of s**t!” at either candidate? Make it a sip.
And take comfort in the knowledge that either way, it will all be over soon.
