SOTU Bingo, Anyone?

Just when you thought you heard it all…

John Dickerson’s Slate.com article, “State of the Union Watch Parties – Isn’t that a contradiction in terms?” talks about some of the festivities that will be going on throughout the country tomorrow night. My personal favorite:

At the Center for Global Development party, participants will play “SOTU bingo” listening for references to “HIV/AIDS,” “trade,” and “Africa” in the speech. Each time Bush says one of those phrases, players mark the box on their card, screaming “Bingo!” if they get a full plate. (They win mugs and T-shirts). Given how little Bush talks about those issues, the cards also have boxes with filler words like “peace,” “freedom,” and “democracy” that are more likely to be mentioned. The CGD party sold out in two hours…
