President Obama and Mitt Romney will face off again tonight for the second Presidential Debate, and this time it's townhall-style, which means the candidates will be fielding questions from members of the audience. If you're like me and the debates pretty much make your brain explode, here's a little game you can play to make it more interesting. Just make sure you can maybe call in sick to work tomorrow, cause I have a feeling you're not gonna be too sober once the debate is over! Hell, you'l probably be drunk just 10 minutes in!
First, select a candidate to drink to. It doesn't have to be the one you plan to vote for, in fact it might be more fun if it's the opposite person you're voting for. If you're at a party, assign the candidates randomly to people. Then, all you have to do is get your beverage ready (I'm going to suggest something not too strong, cause you'll be drinking a lot) and take a drink every time your candidate says one of the following words or phrases:
If you are drinking to Barack Obama:
Let Me Be Clear
If you are drinking to Mitt Romney:
Candy (as in Crowley)
If you find yourself feeling more sober than you'd like, consider the following suggestions:
Take a drink for each person or organization that your candidate thanks in his opening remarks.
If your candidate has any type of numbered or multi-step plan – take one drink for each number.
Each time you see your candidate force an awkward grin or laugh while his opponent is insulting him or disparaging his policies – take a drink.
