  1. Franklin says:

    Well, in all honesty, they were actually playing a game where you had to take a drink every time somebody said the word ‘socialist’.

  2. John Burgess says:

    Or chug a bottle for every “It’s for the children”.

  3. Here’s a challenge.

    Take a shot everyone someone mentions the word “Obamacare.”

  4. Moosebreath says:

    As Shaw said, alcohol enables parliament to do things at 2:00 am which no sober person would do at 2:00 pm.

  5. Ernieyeball says:

    I wonder if we might all be better off if the aroma wafting up her beak was that of good weed!

  6. Mr. Replica says:


    It worked in the Ali G movie.

  7. Mr. Prosser says:

    The whole House/Cruz situation reminds me of the scene in Cheech and Chong’s Up in Smoke where they are in a car full of dope smoke and Chong asks, “How’s my driving?” and Cheech answers, “I think we’re stopped.”

    @Doug Mataconis: When Obamacare is enacted and becomes more popular the Repubs will change the name so you won’t have your delicate ears assaulted by the sound of the name.

  9. al-Ameda says:

    Here’s a drink game I’d participate in: Each time a House Republic Representative is repatriated to North Korea I’ll toast the president of North Korea.

  10. Barry says:

    @Doug Mataconis: “Here’s a challenge.

    Take a shot everyone someone mentions the word “Obamacare.””

    And for teetotalers, there’s an alcohol-free version – wait for 2020, and take a drink every time a Republican uses the term ‘Obamacare’ (rather than ‘the Heritage Plan’, or some such crap).
