Shots all around, and Mitch McConnell's buying.
The re-election campaign for the top Republican in the Senate launched a contest Thursday, and the winner gets to kick back some booze with the lawmaker. The contest is part of the launch of a new McConnell campaign Tumblr page that invites supporters to submit pictures of themselves "Eastwooding" at a bar. ("Eastwooding" was an online trend last year that started after Clint Eastwood pretended to carry on a conversation with President Barack Obama while speaking to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention.)
"Everyone that submits an ObamaDrink photo will be automatically entered to win a drink of your choice with Mitch!" the McConnell campaign's Facebook page read Thursday with a link to the Tumbler page.
McConnell posted his own photo at a Kentucky bar earlier this week, in response to a joke Obama made about not wanting to have a drink with him.

The new Tumblr page already has a few submissions from people pretending to drink with the invisible president. (If you don't understand what is going on, don't worry. The Internet is the weird one here, not you.)
