Interview: Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis Poke Political Fun At 'The Campaign' Premiere

For whom would "The Campaign" stars Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis prefer to work: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?

“In what capacity?” Will asked Glittarazzi. “Lawn maintenance? Whoever lets me take the most breaks.”

“It really would depend on which one's laziest,” Zach told Glittarazzi. [Watch our video, here!]

The jokesters made a campaign, er, movie stop at the Newseum Tuesday evening for a preview of their new political parody, in theaters Aug. 10, that features two congressional candidates at war during election season.

And, having spent quite some time promoting their films, the actors now know what the scrutiny of a political campaign is like.

Will and Zach both said they empathized with political candidates because they understand what it is like to constantly have cameras on them. They also told us that the media’s job now seems to be looking for gaffes.

But, despite that fact, inquiring Washingtonian political reporters wanted to know: what does the duo think about Barack Obama’s tax policy?
“In which country?” Will asked reporters. “I would raise taxes 75 percent.”

(Not that he would be willing to pay it.)
