Mitt Romney is slowly gaining ground in the polls as we draw closer to Election Day. But why should we be surprised? After all, Mitt Romney beat out such GOP heavyweights as Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann to secure the nomination. With the video above, take a look back at Mitt's Republican casualties he KO'd in order to secure the nomination.

This video was produced for an Obama fundraiser held at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night, which also saw the likes of Sarah Silverman, Aziz Ansari, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer and more.

C. Montgomery Burns may not share Trump's signature comb-over, but there's not much else the two corporate overlords don't have in common. Aside from their ostentatious wealth (Forbes magazine ranked both Burns' and Trump's net worth in the billions) the two power brokers boast a history of corporate ventures that have left hordes trembling at their feet. Though we have to admit -- Burns' trademark "Excellent" beats Trump's "You're fired" any day.
