Politics in America can be and often is ridiculous. Now you can officially vote for ridiculous. Cheets has hit the campaign trail. From the press release:

Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are immortalized in 3 feet by 4 feet portraits made entirely of more than 2,000 Cheetos cheese snacks apiece by Colorado Springs, Colo. artist, Jason Baalman. Today, the Cheetos brand unveiled a new electoral polling model with the unveiling of 3 feet by 4 feet one-of-a-kind Cheetos portraits of the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees - President Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney. Debuting on Facebook today at 11 a.m. CT, fans are encouraged to vote for their candidate's portrait - made entirely of more than 2,000 individual Cheetos cheese snacks - for a chance to win the actual portrait.

Head to their Facebook page to cast your vote. It will be interesting to see if this election gets better turnout than the actual presidential contest.
