-Here’s another debate drinking game:

**The Vice Presidential Debate Drinking Game***
by Benn Ray

1. Drink every time Palin drops the “g” from any word ending in “-ing”.

2. Drink every time one of the following words/phrases is used:

“Joe Six-pack”
“small town values”
“Hockey mom”
“Alaska National Guard”
“Bridge to Nowhere”
“shake up Washington”
“change”
“status quo”
“lipstick”

3. Drink for any mention of Putin. Chug if he is mentioned as part of the phrase, “Putin rears his head.”

4. 2 drinks if Palin calls herself a feminist. One drink if Biden calls himself a feminist (unless he says it after Palin, in that case, drink 3).

5. Every time Roe V. Wade is mentioned, drink.

6. The mention of the name Tina Fey means you drink.

7. If you notice Biden plagiarize, keep it to yourself by taking 3 drinks.

8. Every time Palin explains that family is important to her, your drink becomes important to you. Drink one.

9. If Palin explains her qualifications as Vice President as having “executive experience” from being a Governor or Mayor, drink one.

10. If Palin uses the debate as an opportunity to announce the wedding of unwed teen daughter Bristol to babydaddy Levi, toast them with 2 drinks.

11. Every question Palin successfully avoids, drink one.

12. If Palin says her role as the Gov. of Alaska has given her the experience in dealing with Big Oil needed to address the energy crisis – drink one – and try hard not to spittake it.

13. If Hillary Clinton or Geraldine Ferraro is mentioned, drink.

14. For every newspaper or magazine Palin claims to read, drink one.

15. Every time Palin begins her answer to a question by rephrasing the question, drink.

16. Each time she refers to herself or John McCain as a “Maverick”, drink. In fact, any time Biden says the word “Maverick,” drink just to be safe.

17. Each time Palin says “You can’t blink” make sure  you can drink – one.

18. If Palin is able to correctly define the Bush Doctrine, drink one. If Biden tries to define the Bush Doctrine, drink one.

19. Each time you hear the word Wasilla, drink.

20. If Joe Biden gets scary, mean, puts his foot in his mouth, makes any sort of awkward movement, is too dominant, seems too smart, seems too dismissive… turn off the TV, turn off the lights, and finish your drink in the dark. It’s over.
