Join Us Tonight at 9 p.m. as Reason Live Tweets the Third-Party Presidential Debate

CSPAN is broadcasting a debate between the third-party candidates, starting tonight at 9 p.m. Reason staff will be live tweeting the whole shebang. The drinking game is simple: Drink at will, due to the fact that these people were excluded from the real debates.

The participants will include Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode, and Justice Party candidate Rocky Anderson. The hour and half event is being moderated by former CNN anchor Larry King and Christina Tobin, founder and chair of the Free and Equal Elections Foundation.

    Never heard of The Justice Party. I wonder what they are into.

  • Zeb||

    More of a "social justice" thing than actual justice according to Wikipedia.

  • Delroy||

    Oh, I thought it might be like the Justice League and their candidate would be in a super-hero costume.

  • rac3rx||

    No, just socialism.

  • BarryD||

    I'd vote for that.

    Maybe we need a Punisher Party.

  • Entropy Void||

    Haven't the Democrats punished us enuff?

  • CE||

    Gary Johnson is the third party candidate. The other guys belong to the 4th, 5th, 6th parties, etc.

  • rac3rx||

    Yeah, that's the world's tallest midget right there.

  • SIV||

  • CE||

    Or drink whenever you hear an answer you agree with, unlike in last night's debate.

  • Flex Nasty B.I.G.||

    According to the web site of the hosting network, the debate starts at 8pm ET, not 9pm. So, if you're gonna live-tweet this, you'd better be prepared to travel back in time.

  • Flex Nasty B.I.G.||

    Oh, I see. It's airing live at 8pm on and then being rebroadcast at 9pm on C-Span.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    CSPAN, you saps.

  • BarryD||

    Thank God. I was undecided between Stein and Johnson. Yeah...

  • Romulus Augustus||

    I hope Johnson ignores the others and concentrates on compairing his positions with Obamaney. Last night was a foreign policy "Quibble" not a Debate.

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    You forget the fictional "apology tour" Obama went on in the wingnut's shadowy minds.

  • John Thacker||

    Yes, you're quite right, it's insane for anyone to imagine that Obama is the least bit different than GWB (or Romney would be) in foreign policy, even on the possibly unimportant issue of apologizing or being polite to other countries.

    It's laughable that both Republicans and Democrats try to pretend that Obama is any different.

  • The Hammer||

    According to HuffPo, last night was a blowout win for Obama'a unaccountable brilliance, and you are racist if you disagree.

    Okay reason, you're being lazy and untrue to your libertarian roots here. Give us a real goddamn drinking game. I want my sweet sweet gin goddamn it.

  • SIV||

    So who's going to "win"?

  • Entropy Void||

    Charlie Sheen?

  • Bee Tagger||

    Johnson is sucking up to King already

  • Bee Tagger||

    I know one way that Rocky Anderson sounds like a libertarian: he used his entire opening statement to complain about stuff.

  • Bee Tagger||

    Hey Virgil, how about we make super PACs illegal and then trick foreign workers into joining them.

  • Bee Tagger||

    This is an impressive Gary Johnson.
