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).I can't do this anymore--my head will hurt for a month.
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.
