Finish Him! ‘Political Kombat’ On YouTube Ends Debates With Fatalities [Videos]

Political Kombat

This is how the first presidential debate should have gone.

Slate served up the 2012 presidential election in classic Sega Genesis style, with a political take on the Mortal Kombat series of video games.

Characters included in “Political Kombat” are: Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Joe Biden, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Donald Trump and basically anyone in the political bubble that you might want to see pummeled. Oh, and they have special politically-based moves and fatalities as well, mocking familiar political talking points like “Hope,” “Birth Certificate,” “Weird Ad,” “Money Shield” and “Obamaville.”

Check out the YouTube videos below:
