Slate‘s June Thomas brings you the Democratic Debate Drinking Game:

Take one drink if:
A candidate mentions an ordinary American by name
A candidate mentions Bill Clinton
A candidate mentions John Ashcroft
A candidate mentions John McCain
A candidate mentions Enron
A candidate mentions Halliburton
A candidate mentions a member of his or her family
A candidate gives out his or her campaign Web site URL
A candidate flourishes a printout of a strategy paper or a bill he or she co-sponsored
A candidate looks into the wrong camera during introductions
A candidate speaks Spanish
A candidate refuses to answer a hypothetical question
A candidate evades the question of whether they’d vote for Bush’s $87 billion
A candidate uses the phrase “when I’m president”
A candidate promises to “support our troops”

Take two drinks if:
A candidate says a rival is “wrong”
A candidate says he or she is “surprised” by something a rival says
The camera catches an audience member in mid-yawn

Drain your glass if:
You laugh out loud at a candidate’s joke

Finish the bottle if:
The candidates get into a fistfight

I’d play, but there’s a new episode of Will & Grace on tonight.

Seriously, I won’t be live-blogging the event tonight, but I’ll watch it late and have comments in the morning.
