A Presidential Debate drinking game- draft

The debates are coming! (Schedule is here). In order to enjoy the political oral volleyball to the greatest extent, I've put together a shallow and largely plagiarized first draft for a Presidential Debate drinking game. Suggestions and improvements welcome!

Drink One Sip If:
Anyone says "terrorism"
Anyone says "flip flop"
Anyone says "Osama bin Laden"
Anyone says "September 11"
Anyone blames "the media"
Anyone mentions blogs
One candidate interrupts another candidate
One candidate compliments the other

Drink Two Sips If:

McCain says "never surrender"
Obama says "eight is enough"
McCain mentions Jeremiah Wright
Obama says "more of the same"
McCain mentions Obama’s “bitter” comment
Either candidate talks past their time limit
Anyone looks at the wrong camera
Anyone whips out "evidence"
Anyone invokes the hurricane sympathy vote
Anyone mentions Jordan or Pakistan

Finish Your Glass If:
Anyone in the audience gets dragged out of the auditorium
Anyone in the audience gets off an unscripted question
Anyone says "occupation in Iraq"
McCain mispronounces any word or name
Anyone uses a sports metaphor
Anyone attempts to speak Spanish to pander to Latinos

Do a Shot If:
McCain says extending corporate tax cuts will help the middle class
Obama accuses McCain of shilling Palin for the Clinton vote
McCain admits the Bush administration made a mistake ("miscalculation" counts)
Obama suggests McCain is having a “senior moment”
Ralph Nader shows up insisting on airtime

Finish the Bottle If:
Anyone challenges anyone to a duel
Anyone breaks into song
The moderator rips off his mask to reveal his true identity is Karl Rove
