On this very quiet, fully-mailed-in Election Day, here’s a look back at the great 1999 comedy “Election.” This movie made a star out of Reese Witherspoon (has naked ambition ever been funnier? has an actor ever made better use of her chin?), put Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor on the road to “Sideways,” and made me laugh very, very hard. It’s ten years old this year, but still feels fresh as a cupcake.
