36 Pieces of Presidential Election Satire

American Election 2012 Mockeries Include Music Mash-ups

— May 8, 2012 — Pop Culture
With the 2012 American Presidential election growing closer with every passing day, the political blunders, hilarious gaffes, and fantastic satirical pieces have made their way to the headlines. As candidates look to woo voters and critics look for problems, the amount of hilarious material that has emerged from this election already (and the GOP candidate hasn’t even been formally nominated yet) is astounding.

Whether it is likely Republican candidate Mitt Romney being re-cut in ‘Politician Rapper Remixes’ to state his distaste for poor people or President Obama being hilariously chided by Hillary Clinton while she is “running the world” in ‘Phone Obsessed Politician Blogs,’ the election has produced some comedic gold. Whether you are a democrat, republican, or altogether not-American (Canada, eh?), there is no doubt some hysterical political drama out there for you.

These pieces of Presidential election satire are all born out of the 2012 round, proving that this election will be like none other. The influx of technology -- even from the 2008 election -- has ensured that some priceless political blunders and mockeries are publicly available.
