P M Carpenter posted the following C-SPAN video of John Kasich at Voters First Forum in John Kasich's rank simplicity on parade with the commentary "The clip is only four minutes long. You can do this. It's a hard but necessary viewing."
I decided to test the last drinking game I included in Drinks and drinking games for Donald Trump and the GOP debates in a comment to the entry.
Let's see how he did against the General and Kasich-specific cues for the drinking game at You Might Notice A Trend.It worked! Now for an appropriate drink. How about a Columbus Cocktail after Kasich's home town of Columbus, Ohio?
•If any candidate tries to out-pander Trump, take a drink. This also applies to Trump, who is allowed within the rules to pander as much as inhumanly possible.
(One drink--eliminating "Sanctuary Cities")
•If Kasich is even on the stage, take two drinks right off the bat because it probably means Christie got arrested beforehand and there was an opening.
(N/A, as it's for the Fox News debate; besides, it's Perry who won't be on stage, not Christie)
•If Kasich talks about immigration reform, take a drink.
(Yes, one drink)
•If Kasich defends his time working for Lehman Brothers, throw bottle at screen.
•If Kasich mentions how he was with the bipartisan team that got a balanced budget going in Congress back in the 1990s, take a drink and pity the poor guy because he just used the word 'bipartisan' in front of a GOP primary crowd that considers it a trigger word.
(Two drinks, as he mentioned it twice)
That's four drinks in four minutes. Good thing my glass was full of Crystal Lite.
1 1/2 oz gold rum
3/4 oz apricot brandy
1 oz lime juice
Shake briefly with a glassful of crushed ice, and strain into a double-cocktail glass. Add a slice of lime and serve.
Looks good. Two candidates down, eight to go. Stay tuned.
