Alcohol and Politics for '08

My wife sent me a link to a website a few days ago. I have had so much fun on the site, I thought I would share it with my readers. If you have been wondering how to vote in November, this site is just for you. Get Drunk and Vote 4 McCain gets its name from a comment in an Ann Coulter piece. Ann Coulter recommends we have parties across the nation to get drunk then vote for McCain.



Many on the right are wondering how to vote this season. Conservatives can't vote for Obama because he has the most liberal voting record in history. Of course, he has only been in the U.S. Senator for less than one term. Perhaps if he stays in the Senate for a few more terms his voting record would change. This Presidential campaign is the first real campaign Sen. Obama has ever had to run. In addition to his lack of experience, I don't like where he stands on the issues on any given day.



In contrast, McCain doesn't like me. I agree with him on one or two issues, but disagree with him on more. He has made a name out of working with Democrats in the Senate. While McCain is preferable to Obama, he is still McCain. How is a conservative suppose to vote this year and still look at themselves in the mirror?



Get Drunk and Vote 4 McCain may have found the answers. The writer / writers have been pointing out some of the many problems with McCain (like his recent endorsement of Obama). Their articles are rated on how many adult beverages a conservative needs to drink after reading the article. Stop by and see what you think. I am adding it to my link list on the right hand column in case you need it. I hope you enjoy their site as much as I have. Now, what should I drink on election night...

I think I may feel a little guilty going to the polls drunk. Like I wasn't upholding my civic duty or something, but honestly, I don't know what else to do. Maybe if I got drunk I'd finally be able to let go and decide on someone to vote for. But the odds are I'll probably just be angrier then usual.

Here's to hoping for a revelation on election day,

My other strategy is to hope for very strong Vice President candidates. If the VP's are carbon copies of the Presidential candidates, I may very have a shot or two before I go to the poll. I think my wife will be a designated driver...

Heh heh, I like the idea of getting drunk and voting for someone you don't particularly wan't but is the one you favour the most, lol.
