Herman Cain: Rogue, Rick Santorum: Cleric, Ron Paul: Wizard, Mitt Romney: Bard and Newt Gingrich: HROTHGAR! The GOP and Obama finally sit down and discuss the important things in life, like THAC0 and encumbrance.

A series of animated GIFs created by a member of somethingawful, on the campaign currently has 35 parts and is ongoing. The original thread is located here but may be inaccessible to those without an account:

Bards are supposed to be charismatic entertainers that have such an impact on people that it blurs the line between physical and magical.

This is really funny, but the animated gif is really the worst choice of format for it. It'd be much better as single panels.

no problem - here you go. Someone had the same opinion so they compiled the frames into a panel format. I don't know if it has all of them converted yet though.

Wow ... this starts getting pretty dark in the mid-teens of the game.

This is the best thing on the internet.

This is amazing.

I don't know why, but of all of them, the moment I started reading the one starting with "Father Donovan has seen some horrible things ...", I was almost overcome with uncontrollable laughter.

Just ... wow.

After that horrible Game of Thrones chart I am so glad this was posted.

My only regret is that it is too late to change parties and vote for Hrothgar.

That's.... pretty good.
the bat guano arc was fairly ingenious

I still think they line up better with the characters from the Wacky Races than any other franchise or genre.

"You know, if your party just invested your resources in a risk pool you could easily raise him from the dead ... every other gaming table in town uses this system."

This is much better than I was expecting.

This has made my night.
And reminded me that it has been too, too long since I checked out Darths & Droids .

This reminds me of my son back in his Dungeon Dwelling days! Awesome!

Oh, internet. There are days when your bounty is so rich that I can barely restrain myself from weeping at your magnificence.

I took the gifs and made them into a video so it can be watched simply, in order. Enjoy.
