Watching the VP Debate

Posted by Katherine | October 7, 2008 – 11:22 am

Since the vice-presidential debate was so widely watched, it seems worth noting how a few of the roughly 70 million viewers did it.

Gary Ku lives in New Haven, likes avocados, and made a poster for a VP-debate party at his friend Jerome’s. His graphic suggests he was handicapping the debate for Biden, no?

Luke Healey has too many cameras and aims to photodocument his daily life. Here’s his moment of the VP debate:

Dave Shumaker lives in San Francisco and wants to study earthquakes. He watched with friends (thanks, Ann Raber):

Tina from Seattle apparently got through it with the help of a tongue-loosening brew:

Kim Baker loves photographing her DC-area homebase. She survived the debate thanks to some Palin bingo. A drinking game, quite possibly? (Hat tip again to Ann Raber.)

Steve Ryan from Groveland, California, says he’s “not exactly politically active” but felt he should watch the debate. He sat down with a glass of wine:

Alcohol. That seems to be the ticket.
