Top 5 Election Parodies

The 2008 Presidential is one of the most popularized elections in American history. It is impossible to surf the Internet without stumbling upon thousands of articles or videos relating to this year's election. The popularity of this year's Presidential election has also yielded some of the greatest video parodies. Listed below is the top 5 video parodies of this year's Presidential election.

5. John.He.Is - This is the only non-humor based video that made the list. This parody has a strong, and disturbing, message on John McCain's viewpoint of the war.

4. John McCain Calls His Wife a C* nt - May not really qualify as a parody, but it still makes the list. This video pokes fun of an alleged rumor that John McCain calls his wife the c-bomb in a fit of rage. Very funny stuff.

3. Sarah Benincasa's Impression of Sarah Palin - She's no Tina Fey, but she's pretty damn close. This "video diary of Sarah Palin" pokes fun of the easy target that is Sarah Palin. Sarah Benincasa can go ramble on a little too much, but some of the jokes are flat out hilarious.

2. The 2008 Election Parody - This parody wasn't one of the more publicized parody videos, but is still great nonetheless. This humorous/entertaining parody pokes fun at McCain, Obama, Palin, and Clinton in an entertaining, but non-offensive matter. It actually reminds me of the "this land" parody with Bush and Kerry. This wins the award for the best "unbiased" parody video.

1. Tina Fey as Sarah Palin - This was the most popular election parody of this campaign and rightfully so. Who knew Tina Fey could look, sound, and act EXACTLY like Sarah Palin. This was the best political spoof since Darrell Hammond took on the role of Bill Clinton. This clip happens to be my favorite when Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton (played by Amy Poehler) address the nation.
