Here Is Your Obviously Necessary New Hampshire Wonkette Drinking Game!

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

New Hampshire state animal is a deer, is why.

NO we have not yet entered the 2012 general election phase of America’s ongoing destruction, but YES, it is time for a Wonkette drinking game, because how else was anyone planning to survive the hailstorm of dildos raining Apocalypse and Gloom on our nation from the New Hampshire GOP primary tonight? Yeah, WE THOUGHT SO. Let’s recap: Mitt Romney is going to win, but if he wins by less than a 250-million-point margin, then he has Lost, forever, because then the entire universe (Twitter) would be required to shut up about who will win the Republican nomination (hint: he won’t win by enough for this to happen). Ron Paul might win second place because no one has been paying attention to his batshit platform of dismantling the federal government and HOORAY MAREE-JUWANNA LEGALIZATION, and Jon Huntsman will come in third or possibly second because whatever, “Hunts-mentum” was a fun distraction for a couple seconds. Everyone else amounts to the collection of empty acid rainwater-soaked Skoal canisters piled outside your Uncle Bruce’s trailer. Let the drinking begin!

HERE IS WHAT YOU ARE REQUIRED TO DO, IF:

  • Rick Perry gets a vote, anywhere in the state of New Hampshire: if you are a male, give another male  a “blow job,” which is a half-shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream, a half-shot of Kahlua plus whipped cream, or whipped semen, “if” you have that. Ladies: let’s just have a laugh, shall we?
  • You hear/read the words “Bain Capital” mentioned: light a five-dollar bill on fire and stir it into your beer, as an aid for vomiting.
  • Anyone mentions senile socialist hippie loser John McCain: have THREE SHOTS, of whatever you have on hand. Never forget!
  • The words “job creation” sneak into the coverage: just kidding, no one will talk about this. Have you forgotten how GAY MARRIAGE is the only issue that America Cares About? Do not pass go and head directly to jail/ GITMO.
  • Someone, anywhere, says “Ronald Reagan” for any reason: go urinate. Feels good to flush that out of your system, right? This is a Public Health Tip.
  • Someone uses the stupid term “Hunts-mentum:” Drink your can of Natty Ice, in regret for the English degree that makes you loathe desperately underpaid headline writers instead of getting that engineering degree that would allow you to ignore them altogether. Now smash the can against your forehead.
  • Any time the media wonders whether Mitt Romney is leading this race that he has already won: take a small sip, it’s going to be a long night.
  • You spot Rick Santorum bragging about his dorky sweater vest: call your mom and make her down the leftover half-bottle of Australian Chardonnay she’s got hanging around in the back of the fridge, to punish her for making you wear nerd attire in seventh grade. Do your own vodka double-shot if the teasing left you permanently scarred.
  • Newt Gingrich calls New Hampshire “profoundly stupid,” for failing to choose him as their leader: have a shot of absinthe and chew on the rubber sole of your shoe for a few minutes.
  • Rick Santorum claims a “moral victory” despite coming in 86th out of 5 candidates: go make “friends” with the nearest empty bottle of gin.
  • Mitt Romney is declared tonight’s “winner” in spite of no one caring: lick the collected dust that has been hanging around under your couch since 2008 so that you can feel exactly like Mitt Romney, and then finish off the “emergency” six-pack of PBR you were saving in case this thing went really long. Staple a note reading “911″ to your forehead and pass out. HUZZAH.

God, I love you, Kirsten!

snackypants January 10, 2012 at 8:59 pm

I second that, especially the regret for the English degree part!

NellCote71 January 10, 2012 at 9:09 pm

English degree here, too. Also.

Guppy January 10, 2012 at 9:13 pm

"but if he wins by less than a 250-million-point margin, then he has Lost, forever, because then the entire universe (Twitter) would be required to shut up about who will win the Republican nomination (hint: he won’t win by enough for this to happen)"

I hope she still has the receipt for that English degree…

Dr Ozark Hellbender January 10, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Oh, is this where English Majors check in and rue their choices? OK–Rueing like a motherfucker, then.

snackypants January 10, 2012 at 10:08 pm

At least we English majors get laid more, right?

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Me too I love KBJ. Never change, Kirsten. Unless it's into sheer and lacy underthings so that you can cause that long-awaited heart attack on my part.

Loaded_Pants January 10, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Can I fall in love in KBJ even though I'm one of those ghey mens? Or has that kinda love been outlawed in most states?

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Absolutely! Why, I have personally fallen in love with most Wonketeerz at this point, andif I missed anyone, it's just that I've been so frightfully busy planning to run off with the rest!

Dr Ozark Hellbender January 10, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Rick Santorum is perfectly happy to let you marry Kirsten. But you can't marry another boy, because that's just icky.

nounverb911 January 10, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Too late, I'm drunk just from reading this.

Mahousu January 10, 2012 at 9:17 pm

That's the metarule for drinking games – you get to take a drink for every rule the game has. That's as far as I've ever gotten in one.

Yes, you get to take a metadrink for the metarule.

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:19 pm

I haven't had a thing to drink, and I'm feeling drunk.

sarah_connor January 10, 2012 at 9:23 pm

I skipped drunk and went straight to puking. But that was because i went KRAZEE and made up my santorum sweater rules. You inspired me Kirsten! God bless you. xoxo

nounverb911 January 10, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Will you be providing us with hangover remedies in the morning?

weejee January 10, 2012 at 8:02 pm

We'all, 'sposed to y'all, know what the Bain of Mittens campaign will be. No not that moldy banking firm, but the the fact that he's a secret Messican.

Six shots of Takillya with a 1 tablespoon chaser of salt.

nounverb911 January 10, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Acccording to the wikipedia, George Romney was born in Mexico and had five mommies.

Mitts an ANCHORBABY!

SorosBot January 10, 2012 at 8:15 pm

That means he's not a natural born citizen and was ineligible to run for President!

Oh, wait, I forget that having a US Citizen parent automatically makes one a US Citizen and so that whole thing was stupid because even if the conspiracy theory was true it wouldn't matter.

NellCote71 January 10, 2012 at 9:11 pm

But he's white. That makes it different.

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:24 pm

See, the whole point is to dig up and confirm all this information, and then present it to the Birfers. Their heads will explode. Under US law, if one or both of your biological parents is an American citizen, you are automatically an American citizen. However, if you are born on US soil, regardless of your parents' citizenship, so long as they are not the paid employees and agents of a foreign government which can assert jurisdiction over them (e.g., foreign diplomatic, military, or governmental personnel), you are automatically a US citizen. Now the Birfers have been tying themselves in the most artistic of knots trying to convince us that President Barack Obama, who was born in Hawai'i of a US citizen mother, is NOT entitled to hold the highest office of this land. I'd really really like to see them explain Romney's eligibility and why it has never been raised.

SorosBot January 10, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Or that of John McCain, born in Panama.

(It's actually not quite automatic for a child of a US Citizen to be a citizen, but the only problem is if only the father is a citizen, and the parents are unmarried; then they have to prove that he actually acted as a father to the kid. But that's it, and the rule's a relic of the days when paternity could not be proven; if a kid's mom is a citizen, they are a citizen, period).

Pres.VerminSupreme January 10, 2012 at 10:40 pm

I heard that Bain was gonna blow up Gotham Stadium and beat up Batman and piss off Catwoman and shit like that in The Dark Knight Rises.

fuflans January 10, 2012 at 8:02 pm

yeah! npr is calling it already.

now i can watch the last episode of 'revenge'.

MissTaken January 10, 2012 at 8:05 pm

I LOVE REVENGE! Ninjas, gays, fucked up clam bakes, oh my!

fuflans January 10, 2012 at 8:08 pm

right?

and the FASHION.

Biff January 10, 2012 at 8:17 pm

Wait–did we sleep through Tuesday?

DustBowlBlues January 10, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Well, shit. It's already over. Are we going to stick around and make fun of Romney, cracking the 26% ceiling of Republics who can stand this guy?

Beowoof January 10, 2012 at 8:04 pm

I was going to go for the dust, but then decided I never want to feel like Mitt Romeny. Hopelessly spinning on positions to suit the audience right now. He flip flops so fast I bet he would be a green source of electrical energy generation.

Radiotherapy January 10, 2012 at 8:41 pm

I feel like firing my plumber.

snackypants January 10, 2012 at 9:00 pm

I fired everybody who provides services to me today, and it felt great!

NellCote71 January 10, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Gee, how do I get one of those "provides services" people? I want one, or is that Politics of Envy? So confused.

snackypants January 10, 2012 at 9:17 pm

I just put an ad up on the Casual Encounters part of Craigslist and had all sorts of services offered to me.

nounverb911 January 10, 2012 at 8:04 pm

NYT just projected Mittens win. Guess I'll go watch Dr. Strangelove on the DVD machine to celebrate.

weejee January 10, 2012 at 8:06 pm

Not the VHS????

Pres.VerminSupreme January 10, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all this election stuff.

EatsBabyDingos January 10, 2012 at 8:06 pm

Looks like its "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Fall Into the Blender Again." I hope Tim Burton directs this one.

Angry_Marmot January 10, 2012 at 8:08 pm

So long as it's frothy.

SudsMcKenzie January 10, 2012 at 8:07 pm

I do over half of those things daily anyways.

Fukui_sanYesOta January 10, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Wait, hang on. I'm stunningly drunk, my mother is also drunk and keeps phoning to yell at me, I've pissed on a crushed can full of dust and my dog has a 9/11 post-it stuck to his forehead.

Oh fuck it.

OKthennext January 10, 2012 at 8:38 pm

You ARE doing it right.

emmelemm January 10, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Sounds like a party!

Guppy January 10, 2012 at 9:15 pm

The Aristocrats!

SorosBot January 10, 2012 at 8:07 pm

What do we drink if anyone actually mentions W. Bush? Oh wait, they're still pretending those eight years never happened.

Jukesgrrl January 10, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Especially Romney. Apparently there was no president between the promiscuous Clinton and the Socialist Obama. And we must get back to supporting the 51st state of Israel, dammit. (But don't ask his kids to help.)

rocktonsam January 10, 2012 at 8:08 pm

I can't watch this crazy shit. Storage Wars is on for cripes sake!

Fingers crossed for a Brandi sex tape.

Bluestatelibel January 10, 2012 at 8:08 pm

OK, Mittens won – now how many jobs in New Hampshire does he get to outsource to China?

hollywooddood January 10, 2012 at 8:23 pm

All of 'em, Katie.

fuflans January 10, 2012 at 8:08 pm

does this mean new hampshire is in the tank?

SexySmurf January 10, 2012 at 8:08 pm

I think that one white guy is going to win, and that other white guy is going to come in second.

weejee January 10, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Yeah. Do you think it because She1ey is kicking Cain's ass?

Loaded_Pants January 10, 2012 at 8:09 pm

I thought the pic was of Spuds MacKenzie shortly before she (yes "she"!) died of kidney failture.

Wish I were kidding about the "kidney failure" part: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spuds_MacKenzie

SudsMcKenzie January 10, 2012 at 8:16 pm

Mom always said "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

Limeylizzie January 10, 2012 at 8:27 pm

I am changing my stage name to Honey Tree Evil Eye, that is Suds' real name.

Jukesgrrl January 10, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Cool! Did your mother smoke cigarettes and eat bacon while bungee jumping?

SudsMcKenzie January 11, 2012 at 2:06 am

Only on Sundays.

BigDumbRedDog January 10, 2012 at 8:09 pm

But if I do all of this tonight I won't have anything to do tomorrow. Besides vomiting uncontrollably.

emmelemm January 10, 2012 at 8:09 pm

go make “friends” with the nearest empty bottle of gin

I'm not sure exactly what this entails… and I don't think I like it…

Radiotherapy January 10, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Santorum:Bottle. Get it? Just don't try it with a Hendrick's bottle.

Swampgas_Man January 10, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Remember, no glove, no love.

JudasPeckerwood January 10, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Just chug a quart of Drano, it'll be quicker and less painful.

Limeylizzie January 10, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Yay Mittens! I'm just reading the hatchet-piece on him in the new Vanity Fair, he's a right bastard.

weejee January 10, 2012 at 8:20 pm

Here's hopin' that leads to him getting scalped. That Romney doo would make quite a trophy in the 'ol wigwam.

Fukui_sanYesOta January 10, 2012 at 8:23 pm

That's an excellent article.

For our wonkette friends, it's online now.

“It wasn’t that Rick was stupid. It was that he came from a [high school] class of 13 people. He had no education. I mean, Rick is not dumb. He is just not educated.”

imissopus January 10, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Wait, Mittens or Perry? Looks like there are hatchet jobs on both of them. Vanity Fair, she is a catty mistress.

Barb January 10, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Fukui, who is the the cover of that issue? I'm not sure if mine was delivered yet.

Limeylizzie January 10, 2012 at 8:28 pm

The one with Mittens has cute men on it, Clooney.,Damon and Craig all pouty.

Barb January 10, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Thanks, Sis! All I can find is the Town & Country with Ali McGraw on the cover. I will probably get Vanity Fair tomorrow.

fuflans January 10, 2012 at 9:25 pm

clooney and damon and craig, oh my!

PsycWench January 10, 2012 at 8:44 pm

We have the interesting quote from a conservative comparing Perry to Palin: Palin was ill-prepared; she didn’t look like she knew what she was talking about, either.
Gee, I wonder why.

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Gracias.

MissTaken January 10, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Thank goodness for mute buttons. This post is making me crack up while on a conference call with Singapore. Haha!

SorosBot January 10, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I've had that problem in the past too, cracking up during the pointless-since-the-first-month-or-so weekly conference calls on my current case.

nounverb911 January 10, 2012 at 8:20 pm

Ooh, you just made me hungry for satays and durian.

MissTaken January 10, 2012 at 8:43 pm

Durian is the nastiest, smelliest shit in the world. When I lived there my apartment was above a durian shop. Vomit.

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:33 pm

Stop it! Hai-ya! Satay, eu char kway, lor mee — I'm off to eat.

C_R_Eature January 10, 2012 at 8:30 pm

MUTE BUTTON!

Thank you. Now to lay some appropriately Evil music over Mitten's speechification.

Pithaughn January 10, 2012 at 9:21 pm

Ask them if they have flown on the A-380? Is it worth the upgrade to 1st class?

MissTaken January 10, 2012 at 11:22 pm

I was in Sing when one's engine fell apart over Indonesia and had to emergency land at Changi Airport. I was flying to Hong Kong that night and we were the first flight on the "just repaired after a bug ass broken engine ate it up" runway. I want nothing to do with the A-380.

Texan_Bulldog January 10, 2012 at 8:11 pm

My New Year's resolution was to drink less, so I'm out for this one. Although you guys are tempting me over to the dark side….

fuflans January 10, 2012 at 8:14 pm

i don't know if this is the best year to to reduce drinking. but maybe that's just me.

Guppy January 10, 2012 at 9:18 pm

And you made this resolution for an election year?

You poor, poor thing…

Loaded_Pants January 10, 2012 at 9:26 pm

That's what I was thinking.

LA Times calls it for Mittens (and they are not even owned by Bain Capital)

Guppy January 10, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Yet.

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:41 pm

The only remaining media outlet?

imissopus January 10, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Drink your can of Natty Ice, in regret for the English degree that makes you loathe desperately underpaid headline writers

Or the English degree that led to a job spending your day thinking up a new drinking game. Shoot, my film degree should be that useful.

SorosBot January 10, 2012 at 8:30 pm

Or the Philosophy degree that lead to law school and more student loan debt, because there's nothing else you can do with a Philosophy degree.

Geminisunmars January 10, 2012 at 8:37 pm

I think; therefore I owe.

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:42 pm

I owe, and man, that stinks.

PalinzADummy January 10, 2012 at 9:41 pm

I thought you had a graduate degree in physics.

SorosBot January 10, 2012 at 10:04 pm

I wish! No, I love physics but I'm a layman; majored in it for about a month or two but my grades, thanks to my hitting a wall in understanding math when it came to advanced calculus, put a quick end to that.

Now I'm just a lawyer who reads a lot of books written by physicists for interested non-scientists like myself.

Seriously, the only suspense in this whole affair is whether or not Larry O'Donnell will jam a rusty fork in Ed Shultz' kidney.

Limeylizzie January 10, 2012 at 8:30 pm

I would, I can tell that my bf Larry O'Donnell just hates that fat, red-haired man.Hi Owls, I am on a plane , look up in the sky ..that's me waving.

Negropolis January 10, 2012 at 9:10 pm

To be fair, Larry hates just about everybody.

user-of-owls January 10, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Oh, I wish you'd told me! I would have done some stretching, had a double espresso and flown way up and given you a kiss through the plane window! Unless you have an aisle seat. Then I just would have scared the bejeesus out of the person sitting next to you.

But I'll turn my head all the way around from here on earth and give you the biggest, most affectionate wink you've ever seen! *wink*

Perry got 1%? Newt got 10%? Will these two have the sense to drop out?

Fukui_sanYesOta January 10, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Newt will go "full bastard" before he quits, which will hopefully means he'll irrevocably damage everyone else before he flames out.

SorosBot January 10, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Newt's trying to do everything he can to destroy Mittens; those two seem to hate each other.

hollywooddood January 10, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Um, no? Besides, we need Perry to keep saying stupid shit.

NellCote71 January 10, 2012 at 9:22 pm

And continue keeping him out of Texas, thank you very much.

nounverb911 January 10, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Newt can't drop out until Shelly Adelson runs out of money.

Pres.VerminSupreme January 10, 2012 at 8:29 pm

No, of course not. Perry is down there scouting for male escorts…. er, I mean, putting the state "in play" by pandering to the Secessionists down there, whilst Neut is on a mission from Callista to find some more Baubles.

PuckStopsHere January 10, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Sense to drop out? They didn't have the sense to not get in in the first place. Why would you think they have the sense to drop out now? Do you think they learned something? These are GOPers we are talking about here. They NEVER learn. They abhor learning. No good ever came of it.

Negropolis January 10, 2012 at 9:40 pm

Will these two have the sense…

I think you answered your own question within the asking of it.

If that little Santorum grommet would squirt some tears on live TV for the end of her father's pathetic stab at taking the country back 100 years I'd drink the remaining 1/3 of my good scotch.

I'm playing "King of the Road" for Rick Perry. Can anyone help a brother out with bus fare to El Paso? I'm too drunk to find my wallet for him.

Barb January 10, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Look at Romney's wife in that white suit. You would think that 250 million would afford you some Spanxs or a decent pantie girdle.

Mojopo January 10, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Bar bag chic.

Barb January 10, 2012 at 8:29 pm

For realz, she needs to go back to the Big & Tall Whore store and get a suit in a bigger size.

Mojopo January 10, 2012 at 8:30 pm

She looks like she could fall trees with her bare hands.

Biff January 10, 2012 at 8:31 pm

Still and all, not terribly bad for almost 63.

tealsheart January 10, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Come on, you mean you would pick Spanxs over shit from Tiffanys….

Barb January 10, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Looking down at my 3 carat engagement ring…Yes, if I had a beer gut I would choose Spanx.

Mojopo January 10, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Spanx is the gold standard.

Aw yay. I can sit here with my stupid English degree and not have the slightest regret about never ever ever being smart in the way required to have tried for anything in Engineering. But I remember those Tsquares sticking out of the backpacks were an automatic impression maker. Love.

T-squares? Were there also ….slide rules? 'Cause Jr Hi students use CAD programs these days.

(P.S., I had a great slide rule).

FakaktaSouth January 10, 2012 at 11:15 pm

I doubt very seriously even the stoutest jr highschooler could carry around all of the computer equipment required to run CAD in 1990 in a backpack, so in ancient times TSquares were more ergonomic to lug across the quad I guess. I only even know what it is because I once asked who all the folks hitting themselves in the side of the head (schlepping backpacks on one shoulder) with the 3 foot Ts were. I thought it was a frat thing. Frat things were low-tech weird in the early 90s too.

Being Catholics and all, you know the Santorums can party. I've partied with Catholics before. It's just like partying with normal humans, but with lots of screaming, assault, laughing followed by sobbing in fetal positions. It's alot like Visitor Q but with a Creed soundtrack.

Negropolis January 10, 2012 at 9:17 pm

I'm sorry, but you have no partied until you've partied with Evangelicals. Unlike Catholics, there is so little self-reflection and so little self-loathing within evangelical christianity that once you get them drinking, nothing is off limits. Catholics can be some pretty mean drunks from what I've found; they still have a way to find inhibitions while drunk as hell, as if they go deeper than any drug ever could.

ElPinchePutoPulgo January 10, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Yeah, I have found evangelicals are freeeeeaks ( a evangelical stripper & a lady at gym with a Jesus tramp stamp about 2 yrs ago). Sounds like we need a new design for the Coexist bumper sticker ..booze bottles, dildos, bongs ,etc.

I smell a third party candidate coming soon. The Rightards will never get behind Willard so a split in the Right seems inevitable. I'm guessing Ron Paul at the top of a ticket with a no-name Rightard filling the #2 slot-not Sarah Palin, but Palinesque. An Electoral landslide for Barry.

SorosBot January 10, 2012 at 9:18 pm

I would think Paul would try a Libertarian run, except that to do so would probably doom his son's political career as it would make the family name poison for being a traitor to the GOP.

Not seeing a downside, here.

ttommyunger January 10, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Ron Paul prolly considers Ron Paul's career above all else. I can't believe Rand has any political hope in an electoral environment which is not populated entirely by inbred mouth-breathers (I'm talking to you, Kentucky). I think Newt, Ron and Ricky are already considered traitors by the GOP Establishment, which must be tearing its hair out by the roots right about now. Opposition Research is going to have a field day with Mitt and the also-rans are doing the homework for them during these Primaries. It is all shaping up well. The “near” haters would not vote for Barry if Alfred E. Neuman were the Republican's choice, the left has no where else to go and so the “moderate” swing vote will call it again. When Williard is fully exposed, the middle will be disgusted and frightened by him, as I am. In short, I'm happy, so far.

Dudleydidwrong January 10, 2012 at 9:33 pm

It could however be someone like Santorum as I'm still not convinced that the American Taliban/Christian Reich will support a Mormon. If Mitt-shit is the nominee, they'll either sit this one out or put up a Christian (?) alternative. Either way Obama wins but they'll take that over a magic underwear-wearer.

ttommyunger January 10, 2012 at 9:40 pm

The Republican Establishment shares your reservations re. the Magic Whitey Tighties, but they are being painted in a corner here. As I've been saying for years, Barry has got to be the luckiest nigger on the fucking planet; and I mean that in the nicest possible way.

Because delegates are divided by county, I think, much like the popular vote doesn't necessarily reflect the electoral college.

That's what I was imagining, too, but I think the answer is more prosaic.

Jukesgrrl January 10, 2012 at 9:37 pm

I'll answer my own question. My mother just told me the inexplicable number I am reading on the TV screen ADDS IN the delegates each candidate won in Iowa. Which explains why Santorum still has the second-most delegates when his NH popular vote is low. Sorry.

OK, my internets are acting wonky and apparently all clogged and so I can't get any streaming media to work, so I've turned on a local PBS station's digital-antenna-only news sub-channel. They've diverted from New Hampshire to talk about SOPA (the destroy-the-internet-to-prevent-piracy bill) right now, and it's the first time I've ever heard anyone on the TV discuss the bill and the debate over it. And it's just on a local PBS digital channel. Corporate control of the news media is great, isn't it?

Their elimination of the "adult services" category did make it harder. But only a couple of clicks solves that problem.
