9:54 ET: Maverick! Drink!
I’m all for debates but I was ambivalent about watching the VP one tonight. It’s too temping to watch Twitter the whole time and play McCain’s drinking game. Jezebel brings “Maverick” down to the people’s level liveblogging the drinking game tonight. “Maverick” is be the new slang. It’s not the first time.
