Last Minute Political Humor

The US presidential election is tomorrow, so here's a a bunch of political humor bits before they suddenly become a lot less relevant. (Well, they'll either become less relevant or transmorph into tragic tomorrow, we'll see.)

First, i don't think i posted it before, but most people have probably already seen Joss Whedon's endorsement of Mitt Romney:
Whedon On Romney

Of course he's not the only one endorsing Romney, there's also Mr. Burns:
Mr. Burns Endorses Romney | The Simpsons | Animation on FOX

And you can't do a collection like this without including a music video, so here's Mitt Romney Style:
Mitt Romney Style (Gangnam Style Parody)

Finally, i have kind of mixed feelings about Epic Rap Battles of History. On the one hand than can be pretty geeky and amusing at times. On the other hand they do often try to follow stereotypical rap insults which can range from un-PC to just stupid. (Though i gotta admit, i did like the bit in the Gandalf vs Dumbledore one, Gandalf: "You're gay!" Dumbledore: "Yeah, I am. What of it?")

But anyways, the Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney one was decent:
Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney. Epic Rap Battles Of History Season 2.

Of course i could also share a bunch of serious links about why i think people ought to vote for Obama, but i don't think there's much of anyone who'll be reading this who hasn't made up their mind one way or the other already :)
