The rules are out for tonite’s presidential debate drinking game.
“If either candidate greets moderator, Bob Schieffer with ‘Hi Bob’ EVERYBODY DRINKS!” according to the website, debatedrinking.com.
Otherwise, here are the key words from President Obama to hoist a tankard:
Let Me Be Clear
Commander in Chief
And for Mitt Romney…
Peace Through Strength
Are political drinking games a bad thing?
“If you’re playing a drinking game during the debates, that means you’re watching it with friends,” Sarah Lohman tells NPR. “You’re paying close attention and you’re probably going to talk about what they said afterwards. To me, there’s nothing negative about that.”
“Needless to say watching a presidential debate while intoxicated is not a good plan for informing oneself about issues that affect our lives,” counters James Garbutt, a psychiatry professor and director of the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.
