(Newser) – With tonight's presidential debate a go, and happily coinciding with TGIF festivities, Neel Shah rolls out Radar’s debate drinking game. Some highlights:

  • Take a sip when: John McCain calls himself a maverick; Barack Obama rolls his eyes as McCain calls himself a maverick; McCain calls viewers his friends; Obama calls viewers his brothers.

  • Take a gulp when: McCain contradicts his pronouncement that “the fundamentals of our economy are still strong”; Obama admits he can’t control what comes out of Joe Biden’s mouth.
  • Chug, chug, chug when: McCain announces he’s in fact proficient in HTML and C++; Obama says he was only looking for bikini pics when he hacked Sarah Palin’s Yahoo account.
