Between all the attack ads, outrageous claims and steady flow of parodies of both candidates, election fever is reaching an all-time high. But guess what? There's still almost 100 days left until the big day in November, so why don't we all just calm down.
We've been watching Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis promote "The Campaign" for a while now, and it got us thinking about all the fictional candidates that are more entertaining than our current ones. Sure, Obama can sing a pretty good "Call Me Maybe," and Romney is all right at describing things, but we'd be having even more fun with the election if some of the candidates below were running.
From Will and Zach's "Campaign" posters to the multiple "Simpsons" characters that have sought office, we rounded up over a dozen of our favorite fictional campaign signs below (we even threw Colbert in there for good measure). Click through and vote for your favorites, and tell us who we missed in the comments.
Zach Galifianakis In "The Campaign"
Two dogs are always better than one.
Will Ferrell In "The Campaign"
Now THAT says "America."
Who wouldn't vote for a president with great "handshakefulness"?
We don't not love this sign.
You can't argue with that campaign strategy.
In 2009, Monty Burns actually "ran" for mayor in New York City and got a <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/12/06/mr-burns-gets-most-write_n_381775.html" target="_hplink">few write-in votes</a>.
We imagine he'd be seeking the endorsement of the GOP.
You have to vote for him if he's <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSvva3ZOlNg" target="_hplink">been a good boy</a>, right?
Wayne And Garth For President
We'd have to change a few laws for them both to be president, but it would probably be worth it.
Thomas Whitmore From "Independence Day"
He didn't really think this one through.
Larry Vaughn From "Jaws"
"P.S. Sorry for all the deaths"
One thing all politicians need is reciprocity.
Voldemort For President
Um, Voldemort hates muggles so we're not really sure what this poster is trying to say **pushes glasses up from over nose**.
We know Colbert is a real person, but it was the character Stephen Colbert who ran for President of South Carolina and ended up with <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/21/stephen-colbert-herman-cain-south-carolina-primary_n_1221483.html" target="_hplink">a fifth place finish</a>. We love them both.
