I'd like a rap battle between Samuel L. Jackson and Sameul L. Clemens still.

I'm rather surprised Twain hasn't shown up yet, he's quite a historical American icon. Also he really loved cherimoyas.

Went ahead and made a really preliminary 5.5 prediction list. Here's what I'm thinking could happen.

7. Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton 8. Jimi Hendrix vs. Kurt Cobain 9. Ash Ketchum vs. Charles Darwin 10. Mao Zedong vs. Fidel Castro 11. Sigmund Freud vs. Mother Teresa 12. Three Musketeers vs. Three Stooges

I couldn't find room for them, but Elon Musk vs. Henry Ford and Bach vs. Tupac both could easily happen.

I think Lamarck would fit Darwin better.Even if it'd be a losing battle. [lol]

Well, Mengele did affect to be a scientist, even if it was just a cover. Real deal vs psychotic poser could be an interesting angle.

With the currents events in Turkey in mind, I hope we're getting a battle involving Erdogan and one of the Ottoman sultans - probably Suleyman, i.e. the most successful one - at some point, even though it'd probably just be one big Pretender Diss.

Man, now I want to see a battle between Erdogan, Atatürk and Suleyman. :/

I was kinda hoping Ulysses S. Grant would show up and put Lincoln's white-supremacist ass in its place for once instead of having him be the untouchably pure messiah yet again.

My view is that one repeating character (Trump) is better than 1.5 repeating characters (Lincoln + psuedo-not-the-same-Trump).

If I were doing this, I'd have Peter reprise Trump, whoever plays Hillary play Hillary...and then Lloyd comes in as Bernie Sanders at some point. The Lincoln gag clearly overstayed its welcome.

The "Lincoln gag" has happened twice, counting this vid.

On the one hand, Abe really should've slapped them both. On the other hand, I'm OK with the message that sent.

This just felt really derivative of the last election battle. It was funny the first time but it just felt stretched here and I feel like the first verses weren't that great either.

I liked it. Honestly I've liked almost all the recent videos. In general this eleciton felt like a strange escalation of mitt/obama so I'm not surprised they did it.

If they make this a tradition, I don't really see much issue with it.

I'm OK with this being a tradition too, but there has to be an ep where Lincoln goes for the bitchslap and the candidate does a counter of some sort. Duck, block and counter punch, maybe even an armbar takedown into the crippler crossface. Something.

At least this means we can have a reprise of Scrooge's ERB except with Trump being the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come.

a) So they could sneak in the Evil Dead reference. b) He and Pikachu are the faces of the franchise.
