"I Should Have Voted For Ron Paul"

This clip from Downfalls has been repurposed many times. But this particular exercise in creative subtitling is one of the best. The best part is when the sound ever so briefly matches the words on quiz when Bruno Ganz spits out "Stalin!":

I also enjoyed it when University of Arizona Athletic Director Jim Livengood was spoofed a while back, during the height of the men's basketball program's coaching controversy. But that détournement didn't find a way to refer to Stalin in the titles.
