Tip-off for the GOP debate tonight is just after 9 eastern on Fox News. Romney, Pawlenty, Paul, Cain, Gingrich, Santorum, Bachmann and Huntsman will be taking part, so here’s a thread for discussion, or even if you just want to check in and see how it’s going.

Unfortunately I don’t have time to come up with a comprehensive drinking game, so we’ll just make it an open bar to go with the open thread. Quickly off the top of my head though you’ll stay quenched if you drink whenever Newt says “bold, new solutions” or whenever Huntsman touts his Jeb Bush, Jr. endorsement but mumbles the “junior” part under his breath. Double shot if Pawlenty says “Obamneycare.”

I’ll post a video link here once the coverage gets underway. Enjoy the night!


Live video at Fox is here.

Looking back, I can’t believe Romney’s people didn’t prepare some sort of comeback to “elitist” jokes that you just knew were inevitable — like this one:
