Presidential Debate Drinking Games 2012

Hark, Citizens!

On yonder eve the third of October and subsequent eves henceforth totalling thrice, the electorate will listen and watch with bated breath as…

Sir Willard Mittenton T. Romney IV of the Celestial Kingdom debates…

Lord Barackus T. Hussein Obama Jr. of the Incumbency…

…for the opportunity to serve this great nation in the high office of the Presidency.

And regardless of the victor of these great debates…there is but one truth to illuminate the masses…

IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR DRINK ON!

Consider this, dear compatriots in libations, to be a living document.  Provide at will your best suggestions and most opportune and timely rules to be added to the games in the comments section so that we might all partake in drunken sloppiness and hangovers knowing that in our hearts we played the games to their fullest.

So let the Debate Drinking Games begin!

And may the drinks be forever in your favor.

The Surgeon General strongly recommends heavy drinking up until November 4th. 

After that, you better sober up and VOTE (early and often) on November 6th.

    Can’t wait to get my political drink on!

  2. Sam Juliano says:

    My vote will be cast for Obama/Biden, as it was in 2008. But then again I never vote for Republicans! Ha!

  3. Morgan says:

    We should add “China” to Foreign Policy and “Bain” and “Winter Olympics” to all debates. And you should finish your drink if Romney actually gives away any specifics to his plans.

  4. Morgan says:

    OH, and finish your drink if Romney ever tells us the details of his plans instead of telling us to wait until after he is President.
