Got a kick out of this suggested drinking game
while watching the debate, via Adam
-- Heard that other big-drink debate words/phrases were 'Osama' and 'let me tell you.' Surprising low-drink word last night, 'Vietnam.' ...

, in a state of ‘laboratory-like purity,’ refused to read any articles or other blogs before rendering his verdict on the winner of last night’s debate. Hub Blog, in a state of filthy kitchen-like squalor, is taking the exact opposite tact by rendering a verdict based exclusively on what others say. ... And the winner is: Kerry, or at least a draw.
