The Obama Notre Dame Speech Drinking Game, With Odds

President Obama’s much protested commencement address at Notre Dame is today. Touchdown Jesus has been replaced with “Touchdown Teleprompter” for the occasion.

Obama will also receive an honorary law degree from the university, which, if I’m not mistaken, will allow the president to sue the Virgin Mary for making the most important decision of her life without first consulting pre-existing religions and/or Planned Parenthood.

Alright, get the booze and shot glasses out, click here to watch Obama’s commencement on C-Span at 3 p.m.

Standard rules apply — if David Axelrod or Janet Napolitano start looking good, it’s time to go take a nap.

Here are the words/phrases we can expect. Any words/phrases with a better than 10-1 shot at being uttered get only a half-shot, just so you can make it through the whole speech without passing out:
