The Rules for Debate #1
Select a candidate to drink to
It doesn't have to be the person you plan to vote for - in fact it's often more fun if it isn't. If you are at a party, try assigning candidates randomly to the guests.
Take a drink* every time your candidate says anything on his list
|If you are drinking toBarack Obama:|
Let me be clear
|If you are drinking to|
Start the night off with a gimme – 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.
If you lose count, follow us here or on Twitter – We'll be keeping score.

*Because this may be a high scoring game, we define a drink as a gulp of beer or sip of wine or liquor. Know your limits and please drink responsibly.
