He is spot on about the skitters, man. Spot on.

Sounds like a one man conversation you'd hear on a midday 358.

it severely bothers me that there is a chance a candidate who is really not liked by anyone at all may become the next president simply because they aren't Obama. You can hear the desperation in these sad myopic xenophobes' voices: "The most important thing is to defeat Obama." Even if they have to elect Howdy Doody, a marionette who can only make bad cowboy jokes and introduce cartoons, to be the next president of the United States, who cares? at least HE'S NOT OBAMA.

@4 In fairness, I've totally voted for "Not Bush".

If you're not familiar with the Bad Lip Reading series, the English captions are accurate (though of course the audio transcription isn't).

@5 And I voted for "Not putting Sarah Palin one heartbeat away from the presidency".

Is it just me or does Santorum's usual expression in this video shot appear very similar to Will Ferrell's "dumb" look that he wears when he's playing a particularly thick-headed morons?

OMG I saw Andy Kaufman in his eyes a few times there.

That was even better than the Bad Lip Reading Gingrich (and the Gingrich one was pretty damned awesome).

@9 Thank you! I'd never noticed it before, but Rick has a definite resemblance (especially around the eyes) to the late great Man On the Moon. The hair is pretty similar too, though Andy's was thinner on top.

That's effin brilliant. Much in the same spirit, and even funnier (though it's not political satire at all), if you haven't seen it, is the "benny lava" video:

On a tangential note, God I'm glad it's becoming clear ol' Rick doesn't have a chance in hell of getting the nomination. Anyone want to place bets on which day he withdraws?

BLR, oh my, oh my! Just when I was getting totally bored with them, along comes this. Stellar!

FINALLY! The first clip of Santorum I can listen to! Pity this isn't what normally squirts out his mouth.

@11,

He'll never pull out. It's an offense to God.

"Tacos and egg whites" is my new favorite euphemism for santorum.

@16 Have you tried the captions? If you start the video and hover over the 'cc' on the bottom bar it will say 'turn on captions'. If you click it, the captions added by the people that did the video will start running. (They're not the same as Google's audio transcription, which is of course still less than perfect)
