Presidential debate bingo

I’m generally unimpressed with the “debate bingo” cards I’ve seen in advance of tonight’s presidential debate, which I’ll be live-blogging here. It’s just that they’re too easy. A person could easily get “bingo” in the first 10 minutes and then where are you? A game that’s over and nothing left to do for 80 minutes but watch a debate.

I favor the Twins’ “Twingo” method. Who among us hasn’t stayed at a bad baseball game if only on the oft chance that the Twins will turn the elusive 2-2-3 doubleplay and give you “Twingo”?

So here’s the community debate bingo card I’ve put together.


On the other hand, if you want to play to win, you can find debate bingo cards here, here, here, here, and here.

Update 1:49 p.m. – Courtesy of MPR health care law reporter Elizabeth Stawicki, here’s health care debate bingo.

    How will we know if they quote a country music song?

    What, there is no square for singing “Call Me Maybe” or “Gangnam Style”? I guess they have written off the youth vote.

    “Makes point with closed hand, thumb on top.”

    I hate that gesture!! How can anyone do that any more with a straight face?
