US elections, what are you drinking?

Being broadcasted at 22.00 until 6.00 in the morning, here in Europe, that calls for a drink to keep you awake and something worth this feast of democracy. I digged deep into the cellar and grabbed a 1999 Dominus for tomorrows showdown.
What are you drinking while waiting for the results of the election?
Original Post
Tuesday night will be a TV party at a friend's house. We are going to bring several "Cougar Town" glasses' worth of the newest Rhys, Rochioli, and Willaims Selyem releases. New wines for election night. Kind of a vibrant energy. I love election night with all the stats and figues and punditry. When I was a little kid, stayed up all night with Walter Cronkite coloring in my electoral map. It's like Super Bowl!

Remember the game "Landslide?" I used to play that year round.

I lean blue, but would not be overly upset if Romney wins.

The next business cycle has begun, so whoever wins will get false credit.

Apropos of nothing:

When I was a kid, my school was one of the "Newsweek Schools."

They'd come and make the teachers and grown ups leave and then the kids would take tests about current events, etc.

We lied like a Romney on those.

We'd even all agree not to identify Egypt on the map.

It was funny at the time. Then those "Why Johnny Can't Read a Map" articles would come out and it would become hilarious.

My belated apologies for my dickery.

Let me know how the 99 Dominus is showing as I'm opening one on December 2nd for a 1999 tasting.
Maybe some Champagne on Wednesday, which will finally bring relief from watching commercials about all these a**holes.

The ones that get me are all the ads listing all the qualifications for so-n-so for Lt. Governor. Really? WTF for? L-G's do absolutely nothing except sit on their behinds and collect a paycheck, and wait for the Governor to croak or get caught boffing an underage intern.

Kind of like the VPs.

Moselle - you're a little early aren't you? Even here on the east coast the polls don't open for a few hours.

And since they're day-long affairs, I don't drink during the elections, although for years, my tasting group happened to meet on election night so we'd do something worthy, like sherry, to ensure proper fortification against the horrors.

The need for something strong is usually during the "debates", when I hope and dream for a hint of wit or honesty or competence. At one time we had people like Lincoln and Douglas going at it, now we have a series of increasingly disturbing freaks whose job is to stay "on message", which means repeating the same mind-numbing crap over and over. Then they're graded on how little they get distracted from their rote repetitions.

And then since we're going to have the same economy the next day, I'll probably go to bed after a cup of hot tea and honey.

I agree, but i knew i had to play "towers of Hanoi" with wooden cases for quite a while, so it came to my mind preparing for election night a day earlier.

Even here in Europe you can't escape the US election, thankfully without the candidates annoying advertisements. One TV program went like broadcasting a 4hr documentary on prohibition in the morning, a 6hr documentary on the history of New-York in the afternoon an "Once upon a time in America" in the evening Wink

the opposite.....champagne for Obama....anti-depressants, chased with wild turkey if Romney wins


I'm sure there are other Socialists who agree with you. Remember his talk with Putin when he didn't know the microphone was still on? I do. He's the worst piece of garbage this country has ever elected, and I expect he'll be leading us down the road to ruin over the next four years. We have never had an elected official as dangerous to this country as we are currently saddled with. Enjoy our demise.

The thread is called What Are You Drinking? not What's Your Opinion? Perhaps in place of the latter, you could tell us for the umpteenth time what the best vintage of Wine XYZ was that you've ever drank, that would be far more palatable to both Socialists and Tea Baggers alike.
