Presidential Debate Open Thread

The first Presidential Debate is supposedly tonight at 9 Eastern on the usual outlets. We'll be posting clips this evening as available. While we certainly do not condone excessive drinking, The Seminal has created the Presidential Debate Drinking Game:

Every time John McCain mentions his POW experience, praise his courage and drink a kamikaze. This one is only for the heavy drinkers.

Every time Obama says "change" everyone has to switch seats and drink the other person's drink of choice.

Every time John McCain tries to associate Barack Obama with an unsavory character, take a sip of your dirty martini.

Every time someone says bailout you have to finish your drink and pour another.

Every time John McCain says "my friends", spit out your drink and shout "I am not your friend" at the television.

Every time "evil", "evil doers", or anything with evil is mentioned, drink a sip of French red wine. Read on...

Wonkette has another hilarious take on a drinking game. Let us know what catches your eyes and ears...
