Anonymous-I'm pretty sure it's up to Jamie.
Anyway, I read this to my husband & it made us crack up! The Pelosi part is good ;) - last year I kept thinking 'sit down, woman, you're giving that there other side too much (more) to work with.' Sadly I will be in class & cannot partake in the festivities.

Dear anon.

I'm a democrat and I think this is great. Lighten up and enjoy it (which will be easier drunk!).

Great blog BTW!

Lindsey said...

Oh. My gosh. This is priceless. I'm a teetotaler, but things like this give me a vague desire to run to the nearest liquor store.

Thanks for sharing!

Haha Anonymous, start your own blog if you got issues right?

Jamie, this is why I wish you were way closer. I'd be bringing you little miniature bottles to your shop and offer you quarters to be my friend.

I'd be all over this if all of my friends weren't completely uptight (not about drinking, about criticizing Obama). Enjoy- but that seal clap is going to give you a crazy hangover.

Kirsten Sue said...

Hilarious. Thanks for that.

stewart and james said...

this is so damn funny i can't even get my composure. OH how i wish i had read before i watched.

Rachel said...

Sadly, I just came upon this (hours after the address), though now I'm thinking it's a good thing I didn't get to participate - I would have been very hungover tomorrow after all of Pelosi's seal-clapping! :) Thanks for the funny post; I definitely got a good laugh from it.

golub said...

I'm so drunk he he. You have to be drunk to believe in such a thing as a democracy.

Erika and Blake said...

Whoooweee! Some uptighties up in here! I heart my prez, (BIG TIME!) but seriously - he's ripe for a drinking game - the man has some favorite catchphrases!

For every other anonymous with attitude, I was thinking about deleting this blog because I have missed all of your jokes, and funny stuff...but you changed my mind today! I am a democrat- and I loved it. Loosen up, people!

after obama says something the crowd stands up and applaudes like crazy for no reason

I'm only choosing anonymous as an identity because I'm on my way to work and don't have time to create one, but I felt like I HAD to leave a comment.

No political party is ever completely right about anything, obviously, but whether some people like it or not, Obama did come in with this mess to fix after 8 years of the other party having the majority to drive this country into the ground on so many levels. You cannot expect someone to fix such a mess just like that, in one year especially when the other party now wants to act like he actually created the problems.

I am upside down on my mortgage in Las Vegas. I am still waiting for Obama and the powers that be to create laws that have teeth so to speak, so the companies that got bailed out with my taxpayer money are obligated to right the wrong and give me an affordable mortgage.
But it is still not Obama's fault that so many of us are in this situation right now. How come we never hear from Bush now? Either one of them? Of course I guess I would do the same thing and hide too...

My credit score is in the 800's and it was when I got the home... does that mean that I get no help now? I am not happy with how this housing situation has not been fixed but I still know intellectually that it will not be fixed overnight and that when the other side believes that working together amounts to admiting how wrong they were, nothing will ever get done.

I am also a teacher. I believe in accountability, but with No Child Left Behind now, all the extra funds that schools ever get, go to help the "bubble" kids as they are called (students about to meet academic proficiency standards)who, when they meet the standards, help the school meet the criteria, and then everyone is happy.

No one cares or does anything to show that they care for those students that are so far behind that a school can afford to ignore them...

I have a sense of humor, and on some level I find the drinking game funny, but disrespectful as well. I try to teach my second graders about respect for people and ideals and for some of the concepts that this country was founded on. I am not suggesting blind faith and not questioning our system at all, but, how can I expect my students to understand what respect is when they see the opposite everywhere.

Yes, not many second graders come to this blog, but when everywhere around them people have a certain attitude about concepts, people, etc. and they see their parents act on those feelings, in turn I see them act disrespectfully toward their parents, each other, other teachers, etc. AND I keep hearing stories about kids sounding like jaded mini adults from first grade and kindergarten teachers...

I would love to see the person who came up with this drinking game, and perhaps every other person who loved it, to give us a thoughtful proposal on how to fix such a disaster of a situation(s0 that our country faces, AND have everyone like it, and be happy about it... not possible, right?

I realize that the game meant to make fun and a difficult situation and perhaps make it more bearable, but it still feels wrong.

wooow some people need to chill out! This post made me laugh out loud (even if I was a little late on reading it!) :) Too funny!

Diva Style said...

Hilarious. I'm so done with you, LOL.

elizabeth said...

I am an urban public school teacher, a registered Democrat, and the value of my house has gone down down down (sort of in inverse proportion to the number of decor and design blogs I now read) and I think the post hilarious!

mn said...
