The Campaign’s Campaign Ads: Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, and the Political Process

Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis join goofball forces for The Campaign (née Dog Fight), their new comedy about local politicians. Ferrell appears to be doing a drawlier version of his George W. Bush impression — now with Ken-doll hair — and Galifianakis seems to be channeling his old Seth Galifianakis character, or at least his Ron Swanson mustache. But that's not exactly bad news: Those are well-honed characters, and the only thing better than one buffoon is a set of rival buffoons. Hurrah.
