    'The Campaign' Asks: Does Baby-Punching Kill A Political Career? (Review)

    The funniest scene in the political spoof The Campaign  -- and there are plenty -- has nothing to do with politics even though it takes place at a debate. The Democratic candidate played by Will Ferrell is clueless, womanizing Cam Brady, desperate to save his Congressional seat, not to men...
