state of the union drinking game

we can watch the SOTU address tonight live here:

though i have to admit, i haven't listened to enough obama to familiarize myself with his favorite buzzwords, so i can't really think of what to use as the phrase that pays. except "i want to make this clear," he does enjoy saying that. any suggestions?

when palin was running, we drank whenever she said "main street," which had to be abandoned minutes into the debate because it was just too much.

i'm kinda in the mood to say sober though, so maybe i'll drink every time he talks about sending the banksters to jail.

after the SOTU, you can watch a green party response here:

My internet was not working last night, but rest assured there was drinking!

At first I was really upset when he talked about how we lead the world in education and how we live in a country where hard work pays off. Whatever.

Then he started saying these really awesome things about not letting the banks get away with predatory practices and holding Wall Street accountable for what they do. He even threatened universities if they didn't stop raising tuition and went on about the importance of higher education. Yay! I was inspired and excited like a little kid, like I felt when he was campaigning and filling me with hope for change.

Then my husband said the SOTU address was his campaign speech, and I was mad again.

Politics, blech. I'm starting to understand why my dad stopped voting.
