GOP Debate Bingo

(Via the Chicago Tribune)

  • AtticusP

    I’m just hoping that we don’t all wake up tomorrow to news of thousands of cases of alcohol poisoning across the country.


    • Mark

      I think the damage may be limited to orange lips and fingers from binging on several bags of the economy straight size Cheetos.

    • my lover suggests that the new, safe drinking game be that one takes a drink only when the debater says something logical. you’ll probably only gently sip one glass of wine.

      • bambinoitaliano

        What is this? AA meeting? ๐Ÿ˜›

        • 2karmanot

          I am totally in touch with my lower power.

      • I am betting that Trump, for all his wacky attention-grabbing bombast, might cause some of that sipping. It depends on whether he is serious about his candidacy, or is just doing it for personal ego-stroking (or even to help Hillary). If not the former, expect more bombast playing to the lunatic fringe that constitutes “the base.”.

      • William

        Under this plan, you will have to suffer through the entire debate sober. Not something I would relish.

    • Alphabet Hotel
  • Mark

    The ‘free’ spot is only for $1+ mil contributors. For everybody else, it’s a “X” to block.

  • JT
  • Prion
    • stuckinthewoods

      I’m betting The Donald doesn’t survive this first debate. Trumpty Dumpty will have a great fall.

      • GC

        Let’s hope the debates help make the Rethuglican Party irrelevant.

        (And yes, I agree with the observation that the “T” in Donald’s last name is silent.)

      • B Snow

        Let’s hope he doesn’t survive as a GOP candidate, but continues to run to siphon off donations and votes from whoever does get the GOP nomination.

  • SockMikey

    Jeb replies to Trump in Spanish. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sam_Handwich

    can we take a shot when they say “Religious liberty”?

    • DaddyRay

      Depends, how long is the wait for a liver transplant

    • JoyZeeBoy

      Or “war on Christianity?”

    • TampaZeke

      That must be the Free Space then. You can just take that shot before the debate even starts since it’s guaranteed!

  • Rex

    I’m starting to itch. I live about 50 miles outside of Cleveland. I think I’m getting a rash from having clown car and it’s riders so close by…

    • geoffalnutt

      Yeah. The GOP (in general) makes my teeth itch.

  • zhera

    Sad part: A few of these are guaranteed to happen. I’m hoping for the brain surgery.

  • bambinoitaliano

    This can’t be it. There’s got to be 10 more pages of this bingo card with more references.

  • gaymex

    I’m shooting for a bingo blackout.

    • People4Humanity

      I ^up^vote^ you — as long as no firearms are involved.

  • RNegron

    Brain surgery?… on Trump?…. Brain?… Trump?… I am confused.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Hahahahahaha, brilliant. Would make a great drinking game too…..though by the end, you might be a tad tipsy.

  • zhera

    @joemygod, will there be a live commentary here on the debate? If so when does it start?

  • DaddyRay

    I am sorry to say I have friends who don’t have cable coming over to watch the debate and will not be able to join you all in the live thread ๐Ÿ™

    • Sam_Handwich

      have fun!!

    • Cuberly


      We had a date. /s

      • DaddyRay

        Yeah I am really bummed, my friends are fun but not at in tuned with politics so I expect to be explaining things to them all night instead of joking

        • Cuberly

          Lol…no worries.
          Have a feeling a fair amount of the “debate” will be quite humorous but I think the bulk of it will be right-wing talking-point recycling. And those can be rather maddening.

    • William

      I didn’t know the debate is on cable. I was expecting it on the regular Fox station.

  • geoffalnutt

    Oh. So now they’re calling “getting shit-faced in 30 minutes” Bingo. I guess they don’t want to be seen as encouraging the use of alcohol.

  • McSwagg

    You might try the “Logical Fallacy” Bingo card for variety.

    • TampaZeke

      I guess they ran out of space for two of conservatives’, FAVORITE fallacies: Post hoc ergo propter hoc (if b follows a, then a caused b) and Argumentum ad absurdum (taking your opponent’s argument to the most extreme and ridiculous and then claiming that it’s your opponent’s argument). I guess PHEPH is equivalent to Correlation does not imply causation and AaA is equivalent to Appeal to Ridicule though.

      When it comes to determining the “Truth” in any situation, I can find no better technique than is presented in the Buddhist Kalama Sutta. It’s basically a lesson in logical fallacies and how to avoid them. Christians need a Kalama Sutta of their own.

      • McSwagg

        Please feel free to modify the playing card to fit your own needs.

    • People4Humanity

      This playing card trumps the average Fox News watcher’s intellectual abilities.

  • Alas, I can’t play, as I actually have more important things to do tonight than to watch the second GOP presidential debate (Second? why yes, the first debate is at 5 PM – some may see it as the Junior Varsity at the Kiddie Table, but still the *First* GOP presidential debate, and if the MSM does not take it every bit as seriously as the second one, then that measn they they’re all kowtowing to the FOX Newschannel and its shadowy controller (Roger Ailes, the Emperor from Star wars) take charge of the GOP nominating process.)

  • Halloween_Jack

    The “free” star should be “Pretends that the ACA is unpopular.”

    • billbear1961

      And that it isn’t a success!

      I heard the AMA just said it’s a big success and that the GOP is just plain WRONG.

  • Ginger Snap

    I’m pissed I have to work.

    • LonelyLiberal

      Ginger, that’s a great new photo. You have fantastic legs.

      • Ginger Snap

        Thank you. I used to have great les not so much now after my accident and multiple surgeries. Those legs were like a walking advertisement for men to join me in bed ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • leastyebejudged

    This reminds me of Bullshit BINGO, lol….

  • TampaZeke

    I guess “Someone declares marriage as only between one man and one woman” was so 100% guaranteed that they just made it the Free Space.

  • Duke

    If Bully boy Christie and Trump mouth start pushing each others
    buttons, then the debate might look something like this. This is fun.

    • billbear1961

      I hadn’t considered the possibility!

      I’m not watching, but if there are “fireworks” of this nature, there will certainly be video highlights for WEEKS!

  • Gregory In Seattle

    Link points to pay-to-read article.

  • That Other Jean

    If it wouldn’t send my blood pressure through the roof, I’d watch the debate just to be able to fill out that card and yell “Bingo!” about halfway through and scare the cats.

  • billbear1961

    I don’t recall ever seeing Benny Hill without cringing, either.
