Will Ferrell's departure from Saturday Night Live has been a little painful. That's why it's a delight to see him reprising his famed role as President George W. Bush in "White House West," a new meta-spot that features Ferrell/Bush attempting to film a campaign ad. It was paid for by America Coming Together, a Democratic fund that deals with the media and Get-Out-The-Vote operations.

The spot was directed by Adam McKay, an SNL director who collaborates with Ferrell regularly. According to IMDb, they're currently working on "Talladega Nights," which appears to be a send-up of NASCAR culture.

Anyway, brave the download delays and watch the ad, it's awesome! Maybe ACT's next act should involve liberal wag Chevy Chase doing Gerald Ford and Darrell Hammond doing Dick Cheney.
