Don’t miss Feministing’s VP debate coverage!

Boy, I sure had fun livetweeting the debate last week. I know lots of people thought it was a boring debate – my mom, who fell asleep five minutes in, certainly did – but I had a great time.

Tonight at 9pm ET, Biden and Paul will suit up, get in the ring, and pretend like anyone’s going to base their vote on how they perform in this debate. I’ll be livetweeting from the Feministing twitter handle at the start of the debate, and Katie will be taking over later in the evening. Come join us!

Now, because I’ll be tweeting, and you should never drink and tweet, I won’t be able to play any debate drinking games. But if you’re so inclined, you definitely should. Here’s one from the folks at Debate Drinking, who recommend that you pick a candidate (your choice will not count toward the electoral college), and drink accordingly.

If you have chosen Joe Biden, drink any time he says:

General Motors
Middle Class
Bin Laden

If you have picked Paul Ryan, drink any time he says:

Small Business
You Know

And of course, if you do choose to drink, drink responsibly. Because you know you’re going to hear the word “government” about five hundred times tonight.
