Election night commentary is mostly about pundits and anchors stating that the election results confirm some belief that said pundit or anchor already held (see the Dougherty Doctrine for an example). Given that most non-FOX television types are liberal, and that Republicans -- especially conservative Republicans -- will likely have a very good night, this will be a difficult feat tomorrow. As a result, we expect the liberal talking heads to resort to a few predictable -- but silly -- talking points.

RULES: Take a drink every time you hear an anchor, pundit, or other TV talking head...

Say "blind rage" Remember, rebuking Bush and throwing out Republicans was about finding our better angels. Rebuking Obama and throwing out Democrats is about blind range.
Suggested drink: Irish Whiskey

Blame Obama for not "getting his message out" Both sides do this: if my side is losing, it must be only because we didn't communicate our ideas and plans well enough -- it can't be because people didn't like what we were doing! With Obama, it's even more absurd. The man, famous for his eloquence, was constantly campaigning.
Suggested drink: spiked Slurpee

Say "secret money" Because it doesn't matter that Democrats outraised Republicans from the most politically active industries in America, including Wall Street. It doesn't matter that K Street favored Dems 2-to-1 with campaign contributions. The public-employee unions don't count as a special interest. It's just that secret Republican money that's insidious.
Suggested drink: Rum-and-Koch
Washington Examiner

It's always good to get the ground rules out early.  ;)

I think you can also use the phrase "temper-tantrum" as a substitute for "blind rage".  I'm just trying to help out all you drinkers out there. ;D

'Temper tantrum' is covered under it's own section.  I only brought over a couple. ;D

If I played it, I'd be shitfaced at about 7PM EST or so.  It wouldn't be pretty.
