The past election year was great for political parodies, and not only because of easy targets like Sarah Palin. High profile politicians presented plenty of parody opportunities, and lesser-known representatives presented material a comedian couldn’t make up. (Remember hiking the Appalachian trail?)

Implications - The realm of politics is reaching new heights of popularity in today's society, with the Internet providing people with in-depth information in a very short amount of time. This has resulted in the development of the celebutician, with politicians becoming as popular as actors or musicians. In turn, politicians are receiving more criticism as ever before, with their exposure to the public eye higher than ever.
