The Sotomayor Drinking Game

Tom Goldstein is a respected lawyer. He's argued 21 Supreme Court cases. He runs He's even been on our radio show. Now, he's topped it all with "Sotomayor: The Drinking Game":

If the proceedings instead end up as a boring snooze-fest, I suggest using the list as a drinking game. Whenever a senator utters one of the following names or phrases, take a shot.

And what, you ask, is shot worthy? "Frank Ricci," "empathy," "baseball," and "Nancy Drew" to name a few. He explains each — and several others that promise to keep you downing shots for the next few days. Check it out at The Daily Beast. And if anyone has nominations for the Talk of the Nation drinking game ("bye-bye" maybe?), post 'em here.
