You know that moment in Who Framed Roger Rabbit when innocent Baby Herman reveals he’s actually a lecherous middle-aged dude in a baby’s body? (Click here if you’re scratching your head in confusion.) Well, the following Funny or Die video is sort of like the reality TV equivalent of Baby Herman’s transformation.

The clip, a collaboration between the comedy site and MTV’s election-focused Power of 12, purportedly proves that Snooki, The Situation, and the rest of the Shore gang are actually well-informed members of the electorate — when shooting’s over, at least. If you’ve ever yearned to watch Snooki peruse Mother Jones, see Ronnie’s biography of French thinker Maurice Duverger, or hear JWoww mispronounce “hegemony,” then this is the video for you. And don’t x out prematurely; the segment’s very best joke is also its last.

What’s your favorite exchange? It’s tough to choose, but I’m going with this one:

Vinny: “Uhh, you guys realize that this type of apathy is damaging to our the younger generations? If anything, our lessened influence is a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

Pauly: “Yo, I think I heard Deena self-fulfilling last night.”
