Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2015:
Tonight marks the second nationally-televised Republican debate of 2015.
That means if you tune in to CNN at 8 p.m., you will see 10 potential presidential nominees attempt to steal attention away from Donald Trump. For free.
If you’d like to further explore those candidates’ positions on relevant issues, but don’t think you can stomach it while sober, debatedrinking.com has crafted a game specifically for the event.
The rules: Pick a candidate, listen for candidate-specific buzzwords and drink every time you hear one.
For example, if you choose Jeb Bush, you’ll be taking a swig whenever he says “middle class” and “economy.” If you choose Rand Paul, you’ll be getting sloshed to the sounds of “liberty” and “tax.”
Additionally, when any candidate says “Obama,” “China” or “Reagan,” you drink.
The website will stream a live scoreboard in case you miss any. Imbibe at your own risk.
