Palin-Biden Debate Drinking Game by raoshilpa

Last week’s Presidential debate was a huge success on Carleton campus. Almost every student with a television was tuned in, beer firmly in hand. Memorable moments (including Obama’s use of the word “orgy”) have been quoted around campus more passionately than Dave Chappelle’s Little Jon skits were quoted in high school.

But the fun has only just begun. Tomorrow (Thursday 8PM) marks the first Vice Presidential debate and it has the potential to be one of the greatest nights in political entertainment history. With Biden’s brashness and Palin’s cluelessness, what could be better than watching the debate?

…Watching the debate with a drinking game. Duh.

Drink if:

  • Palin has no idea what she’s talking about but gets increasingly more vague as she bullshits on.
  • Biden made his point a long time ago, but he’s still talking.
  • Palin says: “I’m not going to pretend I know the answer to this question, but…”
  • Biden says “the truth is…” or “folks”
  • Palin pulls out the “sexism” card
  • Palin refers to any member of her absurdly named family
  • Biden has a “clever” single word response.
  • Palin says “In Alaska…”
  • Anyone makes a joke involving hockey moms, lipstick, or any cloven-hoofed animal.

Feel free to add your own rules if you don’t have classes on Friday. For the rest of you, I’m pretty sure your professor will understand if you miss your 4A because you’re hung over from the debates.

Here’s one: Sip if the moderator asks Palin to clarify or back-up an assertion. Drink again if Palin instead of clarifying invokes a vaguer Reagan-philosophical talking point as proof.

Drink if Palin backs up a statement with something about her child with downs syndrome. Drink if Biden mentions his family dying in a car crash.

wah wah

Why not question that the moderator, Gwen Ifill, of the upcoming Biden-Palin debate is pro-Obama. She wrote a book that praises Obama, obviously she will try her best to make Palin look bad in the debate Why couldn’t the moderator be more fair and bi-partisan?

Why not make fun of Joe Biden, who thinks FDR was President in 1929, and thinks paying more taxes is patriotic?
