Drinking games for nights like tonight are nothing new, but I've never seen a newspaper do their own, complete with drink suggestions.

In keeping with the night's political theme, we recommend you arm your guests with red and blue drinks (see ideas below).

Take a sip of your red drink if:

- McCain wins a state.

- Anyone utters the word "maverick."

- Joe the Plumber makes an appearance. (double points if he's gotten his plumber's license)

- A pundit implies that Sarah Palin is hot.

- Someone refers to Barack Obama as a socialist.

- Anyone says anything nice about George Bush.

Take a sip of your blue drink if:

- Obama wins a state. - Anyone utters the word "historic" in reference to Obama's campaign.

- Hillary Clinton makes an appearance. (double points if Bill shows up too)

- A pundit implies that John McCain is senile.

- Someone mentions Tina Fey.

- Anyone says anything nice about John Kerry.

Take one sip from both drinks if:

A news anchor declares that a race is "too close to call."

Throw in the towel if:

A news anchor announces that, once again, Florida is the presidential tie-breaker.
I can't do this anymore--my head will hurt for a month.
