We know you have many bingo options when watching tonight’s debate.
So, this is a little different:
We brought back our Convention Mention Meter, a tool that our HuffPost Off The Bus contributors used to track specific phrases during both the Republican and Democratic conventions. We looked at whether Michelle Obama or Ann Romney talked more about their husband, the candidate praise ratio, how often the economy was mentioned, and what speech patterns emerged over the course of the conventions.
The above will update in real time tonight (there are colors!) as Jim Lehrer moderates the debate. We are also over here @off_the_bus and there are many ways to watch tonight.
Thoughts? Predictions? Other categories we should swap in for the next debate?
Reblogging ourselves so you can see the final tally of mentions.
You will note that yellow is not a color we used for a category.
That color belongs to Big Bird.
