The stars of The Campaign have set off on an 11-city tour (in character) across the United States to debate each other on key issues and mostly promote their movie. In this clip from yesterday's stop in Los Angeles, Will Ferrell talks about the qualities that make a good presidential candidate, rules which apparently apply to George W. Bush.
Fox News just can't enough of this woman flipping over backwards in her wheelchair after trying to go up an escalator in Boston.

John McCain may stand by his decision to pick Sarah Palin as his VP, but he will not stand for Michele Bachmann's Muslim Brotherhood witch hunt.
We can now add the Dancing Horse to the list of metaphors, after Etch A Sketch and the Men in Black flashlight, for how Mitt Romney deals with controversial issues.
This morning brings two new attack ads from President Obama and Mitt Romney. Romney's ad is arguably the more straightforward of the two, taking a traditional 30 seconds to continue the attack launched by RNC chairman Reince Priebus that says Obama is the one who has been outsourcing jobs. Romney's ad asks, "Where did all the Obama stimulus money go?" while stock footage of money burning plays in the background. Then the Romney team uses their patented move of inserting video of a Democrat criticizing Obama, this time Chuck Schumer instead of their previous go-to Hillary Clinton. The Obama campaign's new web ad gives their continued attack on Mitt Romney's Bain departure timeline a little more room to breathe. In this longer piece, "regular people" on the street try to decipher Mitt Romney's convoluted explanation about when and how he left Bain. The ad ends with the question that gives it its title, "Mitt Romney: Chairman, CEO, and Sole Shareholder—But Not Responsible?" Both ads are asking questions about what President Obama and Mitt Romney might be hiding in their respective records, but you may notice one main difference between them. Where Obama's ad refers to the Boston Globe's well-researched story and Mitt Romney's own words as source material, Romney's ad contains no sources whatsoever. While there is plenty of evidence that the Obama stimulus did give contracts to foreign companies, Mitt Romney's not doing himself any favors by keeping the actual facts out of his ad. I would easily give this round to Obama. People trying to figure out what Romney means by "entity" is way more relatable than burning money.
Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Kimmel went for exact same joke after the Obamas' kiss cam appearance Monday night. The only differences I could spot were that Conan had Michelle on top and Kimmel had Barack's shirt come off.
