"Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No, I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here….. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people, they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years." —- Muhammad Ali

A Flash Back To The Good Old Dysfunctional Days Of The Republican Clown Show…

.

For folks that didn’t get their fill of the GOP Presidential candidates during the Iowa or New Hampshire primaries, or the “22” (that’s right, twenty two) Republican Presidential Debates, here is your answer

.

Funny or Die and Yahoo News put together the GOP Presidential Internet Online Cyber Debate, a more-than 13-minute spoof of the Republican party’s candidates.

.

Larry King served as moderator for the faux political showdown, which featured Newt Gingrich (Horatio Sanz), Rick Santorum (John C. McGinley), Rick Perry (Patrick Warburton), Michele Bachmann (Erin Gibson) - who was joined by husband Marcus (Bryan Safi), Mitt Romney (Rob Delaney), Ron Paul (Leslie Jordan) and Jon Huntsman (Greg Germann). 

.

"Iowa, you’ve spoken loud and clear, I get it. There’s no "I" in Iowa," said Bachmann. "I am thrilled to be talking to the Internet today. You know, I used to talk to the Internet all the time when it said ‘You’ve got mail.’"

.

.

Herman Cain (MikeTyson reprising his previous role) wasn’t included in the debate, but he did have an ad spot during the faux debate’s commercial break, promoting Caintime Live, a new show where he promises to count down the top 999 issues of the day.
