It will likely come as no surprise to you that there are quite a few GOP debate drinking games out there in anticipation of tonight's event, but the one authored by Matt Taibbi over at Rolling Stone is particularly amusing. "The event is taking place in California at the Ronald Reagan library," Taibbi writes, so there is no rule stating that you drink each time Reagan is invoked, as "we'd have Guyana-level mass deaths." However, there are 28 other rules. We've pulled out a few of our favorites:

  • "Drink THE FIRST TIME and the FIRST TIME only ... a candidate mentions Hillary's emails."

  • "Drink EVERY TIME Trump—or any of the other candidates—insults or threatens one of the moderators. Beer chaser if it's [Jake] Tapper or [Dana] Bash, and the candidate rips liberal-ass CNN in the process."
  • "Drink EVERY TIME a candidate pledges to stand with Israel."
  • "Drink EVERY TIME Carly Fiorina makes a joke about her own face."
  • "Drink EVERY TIME a candidate mentions the founders. Double shot if it's Rand Paul."
  • "Drink EVERY TIME a candidate says, 'I'm the only person on this stage who…' Double shot if it's Carson saying something like, 'I'm the only candidate who's had his hands inside a human thorax.'"
  • "Take a shot of JAGERMEISTER if anyone compares Kim Davis to Rosa Parks."
