Here's To The Surge!

It occurs to me that there are an assortment of drinking games predicated on the actions and words of characters in various television shows (Friends, Seinfeld, Star Trek). It's a sad comment when the President of the United States achieves the same status.

Nonetheless, we present …

The 'New Path Forward' Drinking Game

Watch the President's speech about the 'New Path Forward'.

Drink a shot of the alcoholic beverage of your choice any time President Bush says:

– losing our nerve
– break our will / resolve
– the only way to fail / lose is if we quit
– extremists are trying to kill this young democracy / destroy our way of life
– support our troops
– national security
– al-Qaeda
– Saddam Hussein
– consulted with House and Senate members


Drink two shots when he says:

– clear, hold, and build
– Iraq is ground zero in the war on terror
– withdrawal will embolden the terrorists
– withdrawal will provide the terrorists with a safe haven
– we're fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here
– the call of history / history calls us to
– opposition to his plan is playing partisan politics
– Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda in the same sentence


Drink three shots if he:

– says he listened to the recommendations of the generals on the ground
– invokes the Authorization for Use of Military Force
– calls himself the Commander-in-Chief
– invokes his constitutional powers / authority
– mentions turning the corner
– invokes 9/11
– talks about tough decisions and sacrifice


Help yourself to the whole bottle if he says:

– freedom is on the march
– bipartisan cooperation
– legacy
– stay the course
– adapt and win
– light at the end of the tunnel
