Update: Unfortunately, due to Hurricane Sandy being a jerk and messing things up all over the eat cost, this event has been cancelled. Sad face. Very, very sad face.
How well do you remember all the ins and outs of the 2012 election cycle? These past bazillion months sure seem to have flown by, haven't they? Off the top of your head, can you even recall who won the Ames Iowa Straw Poll? Or what Rick Perry's third thing was? Or if Tim Pawlenty is a person who exists?
Test your knowledge of the Campaign That Was, and other great moments in politics, with So You Think You Know Election 2012?, a fun and hilarious night of political trivia, hosted by comedian Julie Klausner on Sunday Nov 4, 2012, 7 pm at the 92YTribeca Mainstage, 200 Hudson St., New York City. Presented by 92Y's Campaign for the American Conversation, TrivWorks and Indecision.
Bring a team, or come solo and join one. Prizes will be awarded and the winning team will be sworn in as 2012 Presidents of Trivia!
By the way, the answer to that last question is: No, not really.

What's your earliest political memory?
I remember telling my parents to vote for Walter Mondale because he had a nice smile. I saw his photo on the cover of my Weekly Reader and he really spoke to me.
What do you think of people who don't vote?
I imagine they're probably busy, not into lines, don't care, or believe there's no such thing as the lesser of two evils. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't judge them, which is pretty incredible and forward-thinking of me.
