The Real Mitt Romney

Previously, the Bad Lip Reading videos were the viral winners of this Republican primary season. (One of the few overall winners, too, if you consider how poorly things are going for the actual candidates.) I think this is the first legitimate challenger to that honour. “Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up” — a riff on Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” if the title didn’t clue you in — isn’t as eminently quotable as the BLR videos. My friends still say “Life is murder, and you’re forced to fight the war” to one another after watching the Ron Paul one. But the craft that went into “Real Mitt Romney” is super impressive. Plus, it’s catchy.
