The Widdershins

Posts Tagged ‘Dems

Good afternoon Widdershins

So today is the first of two big days for the Democrats.  Twenty, count’em, twenty Democrats (well minus Bernie) will be on a stage in Miami over two days to rip each other to shreds, but in a nice way, bless their hearts.

I tried to find a Bingo card or cards for the events but could not.  However, courtesy of someplace, LA Times, NY Times, somewhere, I found a drinking game for each night.  And should you not imbibe in liquor or partake of other mind-alternating substances, well just pretend that you do.

FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT

Presidential debate, night one

Who’s on stage: Mayor Bill de Blasio, Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, former Rep. John Delaney, Reps. Tulsi Gabbard and Tim Ryan and former U.S. Housing Secretary Julián Castro.

Take a drink if:

  • De Blasio references President Donald Trump as “Con Don.”
  • A moderator or candidate refers to O’Rourke as Robert (his actual first name).
  • A candidate dances around whether they’re in favor of impeaching Trump.
  • Warren says, “I have a plan for that.”
  • A candidate says a progressive stance is not socialism.
  • De Blasio starts a response with “listen.”
  • You have to Google who a candidate is.
  • Klobuchar mentions the Midwest.
  • A candidate turns a question on policy into an attack on Trump.
  • Booker mentions he is vegan.
  • An attempt to answer a question dissolves into multiple candidates shouting over each other.
  • All the candidates give the same answer on a yes or no question.
  • Hillary Clinton is mentioned

FOR THURSDAY NIGHT

Presidential debate, night two

Who’s on stage: Former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennet and Kamala Harris, Rep. Eric Swalwell, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, author Marianne Williamson and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

Take a drink if:

  • A moderator or candidate jokes about pronouncing (or mispronounces) Buttigieg.
  • Biden says “folks.”
  • A candidate turns a question on policy into an attack on Trump.
  • Harris has to defend her record as a prosecutor.
  • A candidate says a progressive stance is not socialism.
  • All the candidates give the same answer on a yes or no question.
  • Attacks on Biden tally more than 10, then take a drink after every five more.
  • Sanders wags his finger aggressively.
  • A candidate dances around whether they’re in favor of impeaching Trump.
  • You have to Google who a candidate is.
  • Gillibrand has to explain her shift in opinion about gun laws.
  • Sanders calls himself a socialist.
  • Hillary Clinton is mentioned.

Okie-doke Widdershins, you are all set.  Get your cocktail glasses, ice, favorite adult beverage or any other accoutrements that you feel you might need to prep for the next two nights.

Does it need to be said?  Open thread of course.
