Words Matter!

Wednesday, Octboer 17th the final debate between John McCain and Barack Obama airs at 6PM Pacific Time out here on the West Coast.

If you're playing the debate drinking game, have your booze bottle (tequilla, rum, whiskey, scotch, what-have-you) and shot glasses readily at hand.

Take a shot whenever McCain says
:

my friends
maverick
he doesn't understand/he's naive (or variant thereof)
reform
Bonus Shots: Ayers, Wright

Take a shot whenever Obama says
:

um
look
failed policy
Bush
he voted 93% of the time with Bush (or variant thereof - this line requires two shots, one for Bush, and one for the main message of the line)
Bonus Shots: Hagee, Keating Five

Take a shot whenever either candidate says
:

change
middle class
working class
tax cuts
Main Street/Wall Street

Remember: in this game, WORDS MATTER.

I'm with /t. Can I go with Pinot Noir and just have a sip when each trigger is reached? My cellar is only so big and my liver only so frisky...

this game is designed to provoke alcohol poisoning -that way - you end up dead before november 4th and don't have to worry about a thing.

The only problem I see with your alcohol poisoning plan, is what if it does not kill me, only my liver? Then I need dialysis and my health insurance will be cancelled, and I will lose the house because I will be unemployed.

Well, I only managed 20 minutes of the last debate, because I get pissed off. Maybe I won't get too drunk in that length of time.

as I heard it, this game WOULD poison folks if they follwed the 'rules'....
so.
Where were the other two guys?
Nader...
and, dang. What's that other guy's name?

Here's a better idea.
Vote for Obama. Get the Bush team the hell away from the button.

Right after the swear in ceremonies, start working for a viable third party.

Don't let the other two parties put you off like they do every election.
Nose to the grindstone (OUCH!) and full steam ahead (Dang! That's HOT!) and stay steady at it till the job's done in time for 2012!

Or, what the hey...get drunk, cry in your beer for four more years (whoever wins) and start up th egames in 20211, again.

(boneman...don't be mean!)

nope.
Good ideas aren't being mean.

ENOUGH of the two party system and bRING ON THE FLIPPIN' TERM LIMITS!!

If you want some interesting words from Barak, read his book, "Dreams from my father". It is a fantastic read. I'm almost through reading it. He is an intelligent, articulate, caring person.
