For campaign year, Newseum shows parodies of presidential candidates, history from past races
WASHINGTON (AP) ' The red suit, flag pin and eyeglasses actress Tina Fey wore for her Sarah Palin impression are going on view at the Newseum in Washington, along with items from journalists and candidates.
A new exhibit, "Every Four Years: Presidential Campaigns and the Press," opens Friday. It includes 120 objects and images dating back to William McKinley's campaign in 1896.
Costumes from "Saturday Night Live" introduce the tradition of campaign parodies.
The Newseum also borrowed many items from campaigns, including the Hillary Clinton's beer mug and shot glass from a campaign stop in Indiana, and President Barack Obama's bowling ball and shoes from a stop in Pennsylvania.
