Need a Stiff Drink to Get Through a George Bush State of the Union? We’ve Got the Game For You


Political comic Will Durst created a State of the Union drinking game for us in 2006. We thought we’d throw it out for 2007. Highlights:

Whenever George W uses the phrases: national security, tax relief, activist judges or affordable health care, drink two shots of beer.

If George W speaks of Hamas and repeats his earlier statement that “its good to see people are demanding honest leadership,” the first person to stop laughing gets to drink one shot of beer.

Whoever can correctly identify in advance the person giving the Democratic Response doesn’t have to watch it.

You’re going to need some friends: role-playing is involved. Good luck!
