UPDATE: Casting ‘Election 2012: The Movie’

The Republican presidential field is slowly taking shape. The Donald, Daniels and Huckabee are out. Pawlenty, Paul and Cain are in.

As such, it’s time to update our casting picks for “Election 2012: The Movie.” We’ve added several sure and could-be contenders — and sadly dropped Kevin Spacey as the former-governor-turned-Fox-host Huckabee. (More changes will surely come as the pool of challengers to President Obama becomes clearer. And, as always, please excuse the poor Photoshop.)
