Tom Petty politics! “But I will not back down from making sure an oil company can contain the kind of oil spill we saw in the Gulf two years ago. I will not back down from protecting our kids from mercury pollution, or making sure that our food is safe and our water is clean. I will not go back to the days when health insurance companies had unchecked power to cancel your policy, deny you coverage, or charge women differently from men.” [SOTU]
We have a debate tonight (we’re liveblogging), and via our friend Erica Smith, we have these lovely bingo cards that you can randomize by just hitting a button. She’s also made a site for tomorrow’s State of the Union address. We expect you guys to fill your cards out entirely. (Thanks Charles Apple for the tip)
I have been asked by several Tumblr friends if I have turned the SOTU into a drinking event. I am sorry to say I have not. I will most likely be working with media throughout the evening. So I offer a short-handed solution: SOTU Drinking Bingo! Simple rules - drinks for every square you fill. A shot if you fill out your card. (And it sounds like you might.) Have fun tonight!
