Rules for Bullshit Bingo
1. Before Barrack Obama's next televised speech, prepare your "Bullshit Bingo" card by drawing a square.
I find that 5" x 5" is a good size -- and dividing it into columns -- five across and five down. That will give you
25 1-inch blocks.
2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
. Restored our reputation
. Strategic fit
. Let me be clear
. Make no mistake
. Back from the brink
. Signs of recovery
. Out of the loop
. Job creation
. Fiscal restraint
. Affordable health care
. Previous Administration
. Greed on Wall Street
. At the end of the day
. Empower (or empowerment)
. Touch base
. Corporate greed
. Game plan
. Inherited as in "I inherited this mess"
. Relief for working families (alternate - "unprecedented")
> 3. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.
4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout
