Obama, Romney Let Loose in Election-Themed CMT Awards Skit

The Country Music Television Awards opened its show Wednesday night with a four-minute election-themed sketch, as co-hosts Toby Keith and Kristen Bell made their respective attack-ad-style pitches to host the gala solo. As you’ve discerned by now, both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney participated in the presentation, through prerecorded bits in which they demonstrated their ability to make important decisions. See it to believe it, but Romney actually delivered his punch line pretty well. You can skip ahead to the 1:45 mark if you’re comfortable missing the Matthew McConaughey, Jon Bon Jovi, and Maria Menounos cameos.
