Debate Preview and Open Thread

Apparently there is a debate tonight. The funny thing about it is I really don’t even care. There is, quite honestly, nothing Obama could say that would make me not vote for him. His opening statement could be “My name is Barack Hussein Obama, and I am a muslim, and winning this election is all part of a plot to turn the United States into my own personal caliphate,” and I would shrug and vote for him anyway because at least he would go about it in a competent manner. Compared to the last eight years with C+ Augustus and Darth Cheney and the possibility of four more with Johnny Drama and Bible Spice, that would be preferable.

The only thing I am really interested in is seeing if he can get McCain to erupt in anger.

At any rate, this is a debate, and as such, we must have a drinking game. Use this thread to set up the ground rules. Some starters:

McCain lies- 1 drink
McCain lies blatantly- 1 drink
McCain says “My friends”- 1 drink
McCain says “My friends” and includes the weird and awkward forced smile that screams CHILD TOUCHER- 1 drink
McCain says Obama is out touch – one sip
McCain says “I put country first”—two sips
McCain says Obama will raise taxes for Middle class – 2 shots
Any mention of POW, Viet Nam, service to country- 1 drink
“Ready on Day One”- One drink
Blatant pandering over Israel/Georgia/wherever- 1 drink
Discussing the surge- 1 drink

I will update with your recommendations.

BTW- we are now at a little over 400 in the fund raiser to re-design the site. Paypal is here if you are so inclined. Amazon honors is to the right.

    Fuck that, that’s why I aint gonna play no drinking games on this one. I’ll be flat on my ass within 30 minutes.

    On the other hand, I will hit a bong every time McCain says “my friends” in return.

    Every time McCain lies- 1 drink
    Every blatant lie from McCain- 3 drinks
    Every time McCain says “My friends”- 1 drink
    Every time McCain says “My friends” and includes the weird and awkward forced smile that screams CHILD TOUCHER- 3 drinks

    This will require several bottles and could well lead to drunkedness. When asked what he will do to stem the economic crisis, Mccain will answer, the Surge has worked my friends, adding, that negro standing next to me was against it, ending with PUTIN Biatchs!

    In the name of all that is decent and just, do *not* encourage people to take a drink every single time he says “My Friends!” There aren’t enough ambulances in this country to save us all from that much alcohol poisoning.

    I can see Karl Rove planting this on college campuses to kill off a bunch of young Obama voters, though. Dead students can only vote in Chicago, and even the dead ones will be voting for Obama this year.

    For non-drinkers and people who need to function tomorrow, the Indecision2008 blog has a drinking game less likely to result in alcohol poisoning:

    * Everytime a candidate mentions September 11th, prank-call Rudy Giuliani.

    * Every time a candidate mentions the Arctic Wildlife Refuge, plunge a turkey baster into your ice cube tray.

    * Every time a candidate promises to bring back blue collar jobs, call your customer service rep in Bangalore.

    * Every time a candidate says “folks,” threaten to foreclose on an Iowa farm unless the farmer’s daughter “cooperates.”

    * Every time Barack Obama mentions his tax cuts for the middle class, gift-wrap a box of poo for your rich uncle.

    * Every time McCain says “friends,” call Lindsey Graham and say “I think he’s talking about you!”

    * Every time Obama pauses before the predicate of a sentence, go watch Star Trek: The Original Series to see how a pro does it.

    * Every time Jim Lehrer says something boring, send yourself a “Celtic Thunder” tote bag.

    * Every time McCain mentions “the Surge,” drink a Red Bull. Every time he mentions “Red Bull,” drink a Surge.

    * Every time Obama strings together at least three fuzzy, liberal platitudes, cue up the episode of The West Wing where Mrs. Landingham dies.

    * Every time McCain refers to his running mate, stand up, face Russia and finish whatever bottle is in front of you.

    I see how this is going to end.

    (AP)Thousdans, perhaps hundreds of thousands of Obama supporters were found dead after last night’s Presidential debate. A former McCain surrogate, refusing to be identified, told reporters that McCain supporters had managed to distribute the rules for a drinking game through various web sites, which were invariably posted online.

    The debate began much as expected, but after a short while Senator McCain’s debating style took an odd turn. Senator McCain has occasionally been publicly mocked for excessively using the words ‘My friends’ or referring to his time as a POW. So excessively, in fact, that these were prominent items in the rules for the previously mentioned drinking game.

    About 15 minutes into the debate, Senator McCain began to lead off literally every sentence with ‘My Friends,’. By our best count, he used those words approximately 482 times by the end of the debate. He referenced his POW status 143 times, lied about the Bridge to Nowhere 72 times and, most dramatically, attacked various women with a vile epithet we cannot reproduce here.

    An accurate body count has been impossible to determine, as work crews have been unable to approach the homes of dead debate viewers due to toxic fumes emanating from these locations.

    So, since McCain is in the hall and debating, does this mean they ironed out a bailout plan? No? Why is he there then when he said it was more important to meet in Washington until the plan was set? Hahahahahaha!

    Ok, so everyone is ignoring the other threads… so I am reposting.

    Coming from Australia, I’m not allowed to donate to Obama or any other politician under US electoral laws, but I think this may be the most important election in a very long time. I’m sure there are a lot of non-US citizens who are in the same position…

    I’ve donated to John’s paypal and also given some money to Giordano – supporting the great arts of snark, analysis and wingnut debunking.

    Before you all get too drunk (I’d join you but it’s 11am here and a little early for drinking games) does anyone have any other ideas (legal of course – no breaching American electoral laws for me) as to where us furriners could throw some money that might help get Obama into the White House?

    Okay…what the fuck was all that about Normandy and Eisenhower? Does McCain really want to be saying “I’m old! Like, really really old!”

    When’s this damned foreign policy debate going to get to foreign policy?

    Darkrose, any educated American is going to know the significance of Eisenhower and Normandy, regardless of his or her age. It shouldn’t make someone look “old” to refer to such a watershed event in American history.
