The second presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney is going down tonight. And you could watch it while perhaps taking notes to later reference when coming to an informed decision about the candidates and their policies.
But why bother? Between feature-length political commercials playing at the movie theater, ad buys that equal the GDP of small nations and the round-the-clock cable news coverage, it's really difficult to see the presidential election as anything but entertainment.
So, maybe it's time to dispense with the illusions of "debate," and have the fictional candidates go at it in the latest episode of Epic Rap Battles of History.
