How to survive this election season

Since we're on the subject of change and all .... I was listening to the college radio station yesterday afternoon while I was stuck in traffic, and darn if those guys didn't have a most excellent idea for this election season: The "change" drinking game! (Some of you my age may be familiar with "Bob," the drinking game wherein you watch "The Bob Newhart Show" and take a drink every time someone says "Hi Bob!")

Here's how we'll play: While watching Obama's next speech, take a drink of your favorite beverage every time he says the word "change" (or "hope," but don't pick both "hope" and "change" because you'll be passed out before the speech is over).

I think I'll do jello shots. Vodka.

We certainly won't have to worry about missing how these "change"s will be put into effect - there are no plans for change on the table - just alot of talk using the word "change".

I guess it is too much to HOPE that there are reasonable plans for CHANGES? Better yet - not only plans but plans that we know of and can give input on...

Cootamundra, Isn't it fun to throw those words around and never have anyone ask for specifics?

And I haven't even started drinking. Yet.

It IS fun.

What time will you start drinking?

I've got a red wine I am starting with. NOW.

you know, it's pouring rain, and just sooo depressing.

I'll take hope and change.

and "yes we can."

Ha! I think I'd better wait 'til I get home. There awaits a large glass of merlot with my name on it!

Sue J said...

Sara, 2 jello shots for you!

And a bonus shot for "yes we can!"

Reminds me of Buzzword Bingo where you're supposed to check off each marketing/business term (change the paradigm, think outside the box, and so on) you hear in a business meeting until you've checked them all off! (I suppose it's not as much fun as taking a jello shot though).

Donald, are saying that there's really very little difference between the two candidates?! I am shocked -- SHOCKED I tell you!

donald said...

nope, but change and hope seem to be the buzz words used by all the candidates. i know there is a difference. as an independant, i will wait and see which one the democratic party chooses, and will vote for them over mccain for sure.

I hear McCain is now running with "change," too! The madness!
