10:43 PM — Veep Deb
Tonight I listened to the Vice Presidential debate with half an ear. Some of the highlights:
- Attack of the clones. (10/16: Unfortunately since I made this post, CNN has change the picture, and you no longer can see Cheney and Edwards side-by-side in identical black suits, light blue button down shirts, red ties, American flag lapel pins, facial expressions, and hand at chin height, fingers pursed to make a point.)
- Moderator (Gwen Ifill): "Without naming them at all, explain why you are different from your opponent."
Cheney: "Why I am different from John Edwards..."
- Flip-flopping moderator
Moderator: "The next question goes to Vice Pres... I'm sorry, Senator Edwards you have 30 seconds."
Edwards: (starts talking) "...and you just realized that you made a mistake."
Moderator: "Yes, I'm sorry. The next question goes to Vice President Cheney..."
- On gay marriage:
Cheney: "People should be free but I do everything Bush tells me."
Edwards: "I want the rights of gay marriage not called marriage but I can't say that or I'll loose the swing votes."
Unfortunately, I haven't had much luck finding good drinking games for these. Anyone have a link?
