What are they doing scheduling a debate on a Saturday night, when people ought to be out drinking? Fortunately, though, politics and booze can mix. Reader Steve Sudhoff offers a simple Democratic debate drinking game "modeled on the 'Hi Bob' game by viewers of 'The Bob Newhart Show' ":
Every time Kerry says the word "Vietnam," everyone watching the debate has to take a drink. As a new twist, any time one of the other candidates says the word "Vietnam," take two drinks, and if the moderator says the word "Vietnam," take three drinks.
Be warned: If you play this game, you're likely to drop to the ground long before Kerry drops out of the race.
