The last two weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions and coverage around the RNC and DNC. You've already been following our coverage and participating in our chats about some of the things said.

PS: We have something special to ask you. When you're done looking through some of the responses we've rounded up, just go on ahead and scroll to the bottom. We'll be there with a special note.

It also happens to be our 1st anniversary. In honor of both, we're thinking of doing something special. Here's what we're thinking:
You in? For you teetotalers (and underage readers), you can always play with soda or seltzer. If you're interested in playing with us on October 3rd, tell us in the comments and if you have any ideas for the game, leave those in the comments, as well. We'll announce more details as we get closer.
