SOTU Drinking Game

Most SOTU drinking games involve the contents of the speech itself.  I personally like to drown the inanity of cable news coverage with alcohol.  So, for this year's SOTU, here are my proposals, and please feel free to add to this:

TAKE ONE SHOT AT...


Any mention of "gearing up for 2012" or like language
Any mention of "jobs killing"
Any mention of "business friendly"
Any mention of Paul Ryan as a "policy wonk."
Any mention of Ryan vs. Bachman as voice of the Republican response
Any mention of the absence of Justice Alito
Any mention of economic turnaround
Any definition of bipartisanship that is essentially doing what Republicans want
Any mention of "shakeup of President Obama's inner circle."

TAKE TWO SHOTS AT...

Any mention of the First Lady's attire
Any mention of Rahm Emmanuel
Any mention of approval ratings
Any mention of Sarah Palin
Any mention of Ronald Reagan

TAKE THREE SHOTS AT..

Any mention of the seating arrangement

DOWN THE BOTTLE IF...

There's actual substantive commentary beyond the vapid, superficial soundbites from the likes of David Gergen.


CNN sets the curve.
