Guest Post by Modest Mouse
Tomorrow night, my time with the television will be rudely interrupted by President Obama’s address to the nation. The State of the Union address is like the People’s Choice Awards for Ugly People (yep, just like Washington, D.C. is the Hollywood for Ugly People…just not for Aaron Schock, Jeff Flake, Scott Brown, as they are the exception of the rule), where it becomes a who’s who amongst American politicians. The only good thing is that this speech highlights the President’s so-called agenda to destroy our liberties (CCC would appreciate this line…that’s why I am inserting it). Even though, I am not able to watch my typical programs, I will be watching this speech for one reason…the games that come from this blessed speech.
Now, I know the goody-two-shoe CCC will most likely be sitting at home watching the speech and live blogging it, because she’s a fan of this stuff and a complete nerd. On the other hand, I will be sitting at home doing my part by playing a game, while watching the speech. Obama’s speech is filled with one liners to create this exciting game. CCC and I had an interesting email exchange earlier about this, and I think she could be excellent at this game. Based on the ATR version of Obama BINGO, you can either drink an adult beverage (or more depending on tolerance), or be like CCC and drink Berry Blue Kool Aid (straight up…no alcohol). Since I am a party animal (unlike CCC…you nerd!), this is a game that will be lively considering the President’s remarks. I actually had a difficult time deciding between Guinness and Natural Light, but since we are in an economic recession, I am leaning towards the cheaper stuff.
Here’s the email exchange:
Crystal Clear Conservative: Since you are proposing the so-called Obama game, I will sit around the house drinking Kool Aid (preferably Berry Blue without booze). For every time, Obama says, “Hope,” take a sip. Every time, he says, “Bailout,” take a gulp, and every time, he says, “Let me be clear,” SHOTGUN!
Modest Mouse: CCC, seriously! Do you have an inner wild child that you could tap into for this one game? You are worthy of spiked Kool Aid for this game. I agree with the terms you laid out in the first email, but we should add references to his Chief Tax Evader, Timothy Geithner and his economic dream team.
CCC: Honestly, you would be dead or close to death after those references, because Obama is likely to refer to them all night long. How about any mention of “too big to fail” or “tax cuts to working families?” You’re right, Modest Mouse, I need to have fun…sugar highs are much better. At least, I enjoy sugar highs.
Modest Mouse: Whatever, CCC! I guess you’ll be decked out in your pretty purple snuggie and live blogging with Kool Aid. So, I’ll sit around with an adult beverage enjoying this party. Hasta la Vista…Nerd! Oh yeah, since I am sharing this with everyone, please give CCC some encouragement and tell her to be bad for one night.
As you can see, this could be a fun game and ATR has some of the one-liners to look out for. BINGO is so much fun with President Obama and his teleprompter. Stop by here tomorrow night, as CCC and myself will be doing a series of live blogs. CCC will provide the analysis and I will be in charge of the entertainment value. Hey, since we are all inclusive, I will even invite the sexist 200 Grande to join our live blog, if he’s up to challenge.
