The Swarm

Mix it up with The Bee's editorial board.

Mayoral debate drinking game
We all know that bloggers everywhere play drinking games during the national debates. I propose we try one for tonight's Sacramento mayoral debate between incumbent Heather Fargo and challenger Kevin Johnson. 

Pick a word or phrase you'd expect each candidate to use frequently and take a sip of your favorite beverage whenever that candidate utters it.  Whoopee!  Judging by the way the campaign has gone, I wouldn't be surprised if each candidate chooses to "go negative" than lay out his or her plans for the city. 

So whenever Fargo or Johnson refers to "my opponent" or something to that effect I'm taking a swig.  Who's joining me?
