State of the Union Drinking Game

State of the Union: The Drinking Game!

Note: This piece is presented for humorous purposes. Please, for the love of Mike, do not actually try to drink when all of these things happen. If you do, this blog is NOT responsible for your liver. Or upcoming lack thereof.

Drink When The President Brags About The Success of:
-The Iraq War
-The War on Terror
- 9/11
-The Middle-East Peace Process
-Tax Cuts
-Medicare Reform
-Immigration Reform
-The Department of Homeland Security
-The Confimation of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito (as of 11:45 AM)

Drink if the President ever mentions:
-The Hamas victory in the Palestinian elections
-The death toll in the Iraq War
-Lobbying Reform
-Twice if he mentions Jack Abramoff by name
-Hurricane Katrina
-The budget defeceit

Catch Phrases: Drink Each time the President says:
-We're making progess
-We're ready to declare victory on...

Drink when the President introduces one of the following in the audience:
-A working-class family from the heartland who has benefitted from Bush administration economic policy
-An elderly person who supports Medicare-D reform
-A famous athlete (Twice if it's a player from the Steelers or the Seahawks)
-An Iraq veteran
-A potential 2008 GOP Presidential candidate
-An "elder statesman" figure
-Twice if it's not a member of the Bush family

Drink TWICE if the person is also a member of a racial, ethnic, or religious minority.

Drink when the President says the following words:
(Not recommended if you have to work Wednesday morning)
-Any "Bushism"

The low-impact SOTU drinking game: Drink whenever the audience applauds enough to stop the speech. Twice for a standing ovation.

Yah, I'll be plowed by 9.20 (it starts at 9 yes?)
At least I'll be able to sleep after. Or pass out. But the results will be the same.

drink with each mention of 9/11.

To keep your vital organs functioning after all that drinking, puke every time he says "We're making progress." Then, start drinking again.
