Politicians are idiots. I’m old enough to acknowledge that a majority of elected officials are not nearly smart enough to be responsible for making decisions we afford them. Unfortunately, we’re stuck with them, because the smart people go into other lines of work. In The Campaign, comedic heavyweight and incumbent Will Ferrell and up-and-coming-and-almost-here Zach Galifianakis, who can be called that because I can now spell his name without Googling him, square off as rival politicians. Both play idiots as the two actors are wont to do, but unfortunately the movie is not a sum of its parts.
