Debate game: Guess the insipid questions

I blogged my warning earlier today about how tonight’s Brokaw-moderated town hall debate is a recipe for pander politics at its worst. Expect a lot of disgruntled me-me-me questions. Michelle Obama will feel right at home.

Reader David e-mails a suggestion: “Instead of a drinking game tonight, maybe you can do a ‘predict the first debate question’ pre-debate thread.”

He gets first dibs:

My predicted first question (bonus points if questioner has pony-tail):

“The tone of this campaign has become extremely negative. Meanwhile, I just lost my job, foreclosed on my mortgage and my children can’t get health care. Can each of you promise here tonight that you will stop the negative campaigning and focus on the issues we care about?”

I predict:

*A gay activist pushing the same-sex marriage agenda: “Sen. McCain/Obama, how can you deny me the right to marry the one I love?”

*A Cindy Sheehan type demanding to know why Sen. McCain won’t bring her son home.

*An illegal alien student holding his/her hand out for DREAM Act benefits.

*A “moderate Republican” type blaming the bailout on GOP greed.

Your turn.

***

Game variation: Which questions won’t be asked?

I’ll start:

Sen. Obama, my name is John Murtagh. What were you doing consorting with the leader of the terrorist group that tried to kill my family?
