What if instead of having debates, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney decided to hash out their differences in a series of nationally televised battle raps?

Yeah, that's not going to happen. But the folks at Funny or Die have given us a peek at what such a battle rap debate would look like by having a couple rhyme dropping actors portray the two candidates.

As you can see, the rap battle contains a lot more anagrams than such competitions typically do. We guess this is because somebody running for the highest office in the land wants to make clear to all that he is an excellent speller.

The clip also features a brief appearance from "Tiny Emo Mr. T." We've never seen this weeping wee sprite before, but we'd like to learn more about him.

So who wins in the end? Actually, in a surprise twist, it's neither. In fact, it looks like our next president will live in a cave and wear a cape.
