Did someone say something stupid? Let's drink to that

Let's get ready to rumble -- again! Wednesday brings us the third "Trump Unchained" reality show. Oops... GOP presidential primary debate. The first drew record numbers, but how many of you will tune in for the third round of this?

CNBC's Carl Quintanilla, co-anchor of "Squawk on the Street" and "Squawk Alley," Becky Quick, co-anchor of "Squawk Box" and Chief Washington Correspondent John Harwood will host "The Republican Presidential Debate: Your Money, Your Vote," on October 28.

Since it's possible one of these candidates might be our next president, you want to do your civic duty and watch, right? But how to get through it? Endure the two-hour main event by making it a drinking game.

Sure, the debate might remind you of the slim number of admirable candidates running for president in 2016. But hopefully by the end of the evening, you'll be too drunk to care.
