2005 Inauguration Drinking Game  
Join us on January 20th, no matter where in the US you are, to play the Inauguration Drinking Game. The rules are fairly simple, find a station showing the President-elect driving to the podium for the speech. The drinking starts here:

- Take a drink every time a protester throws an object at the motorcade
- Take a drink any time a protester gets the shit beaten out of him/her by law enforcement (soldiers beating on citizens counts, too)
- Take a drink every time a Bush supporter's sign is spelled incorrectly (Ex. the famous one of "Get a brain you morans")
- Chug for 10 seconds if the president is unable to make the traditional walk to the podium due to projectiles (this happened in 2001, be ready!)

If you've made it this far, the real fun begins with the inaugural address:

- Take one drink for every American flag surrounding the podium
- Drink every time a variation of the words Freedom, Terror, or Democracy is used
- Drink every time a "nine-eleven" reference is used
- Drink every time a reference to "the brave members of our military" is made
- Drink every time he mentions social security being in imminent crisis (It can make it to 2042 according to the SS Admin)
- Drink every time Dick Cheney has to be given CPR
- Drink every time a Bushism is used (Hispanically, Misunderestimated, Nukular, etc.)
- Drink every time he mentions having a mandate from the people (51% is not a mandate)
- Drink every time he mentions God, Supreme Power, Allah, Yaweh, or Himself (In the context of religious authority)

Surprise Announcements

- If in his address he declares war on Iran or any other Middle Eastern nation, chug an entire beer and burn your Selective Service card
- If he declares "Mission Accomplished" on any issue, chug an entire beer on principle alone
- If he blames or fires ANY members of his cabinet for being responsible for starting the Iraq Invasion, chug two beers (Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle, Feith, Rice, Rove, or Cheney)

That's not a fair drinking game! It's supposed to be possible - however PREDICTABLY unlikely - to walk awak without staggering too much. Anyone who plays this is just gonna get blind drunk.

Well, I played the game the other day, and I was destroyed...*hic* Still feeling it... especiall, because we had the added rule if you disagree with anything he says drink a shot, so everyone was drinking... This is what the military has come to, drinking in disagreement with the president. Good thing we get paid for this as a job.

Re: I wish
Notice, I had the added rule If you disagree with ANYTHING he says, drink a shot, and well, everyone started to drink non stop. It was a much needed rule to add to the game.
