Starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakos
Political satire has existed at least since the time of Aristophanes (446 B.B.) and takes many forms. Cartoons, novels, newspaper and magazine commentary as well as television and film programming have all been used for this purpose. In recent decades "Saturday Night Live" has successfully lampooned presidential candidates and other politicians with memorable skits involving Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford, Dana Carvey as George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot and Will Ferrell as George W. Bush, among others. "The Campaign" does not target any one particular individual, but instead lambasts the entire political process.
