Obama and Romney Go Toe-to-Toe ‘Street Fighter Style’ [VIDEO]
As the voting process enters its final hours and Americans prepare to find out who will live at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, in Washington D.C. for the next four years, the gang at CollegeHumor.com have come up with what I think is a better way to determine who should be the next President of the United States.
For what it’s worth, I did cast my vote today. Thanks to the ability to vote anywhere in Vanderburgh County, I stopped by a local church just down the street from the station. Even though there was a line, the total process took maybe 20 minutes. Whether the people I selected win or not will be discovered later on tonight (although I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t know the result for President until tomorrow or later in the week).
Of course the office of President will be awarded to the guy who gets the most Electoral Votes which is based on the popular vote of each state. I thought about going on a long diatribe about how the Electoral College works, and why I think it needs to be eliminated, but this post is meant more lighthearted, so here’s a link explaining who the Electoral College is and why they essentially determine the outcome of the election. Feel free to read through it and form your own conclusion.
Back to the funny stuff. I’ve always thought those who make the rules about the election should consider going to a more reality-talent show based system. More people seem to vote for American Idol, The Voice, and X-Factor anyway, so why not evolve with the times and jazz up the process a little? It will never happen, and frankly, it probably shouldn’t, but it would make things a bit more entertaining I think.
Of course they could just set it up like a good old fashioned street fight, and let the two candidates duke it out until there’s only one man left standing. Which is pretty much the idea behind the video below from College Humor. If this were an actual video game, I’d buy two, one for my Wii and one for my Playstation 3.
