Bad Lip Reading somehow manages to make the first GOP presidential debate even more absurd

It may have taken them a few weeks -- and who can blame them, given the inherent silliness of their source material -- but the folks over at Bad Lip Reading finally got around to working their charms upon the first Republican presidential debate and, suffice it to say, you'll never look at any of the candidates quite the same again.

On its Facebook page, BLR stated that "as a new presidential election gets under way, it's important to stay informed about the candidates." If by "informed" they mean, "you'll never look at them and their pepper-spray tans or little paper hats the same way again," they are absolutely correct.
