During Senator McCain's appearance on Saturday Night Live November 1st he appeared during the news parody (Weekend Update), commenting on his "Reverse Maverick" and "Double Maverick" alternate strategies. He also mocks himself as the "Sad Grandpa"...
Senator McCain showed a lot of courage appearing on a comedy program that has mocked his Vice-Presidential candidate relentlessly over the last month, but I don't see the move as "Presidential" in any sense.
There was an air of desperation in his appearance. He didn't take any pies to the face or have his pants pulled down around his knees -- but if he had it wouldn't have been any worse.
And don't leave without seeing "MC Howie and Julie K Rock the Vote" - a rap video created by two Barack Obama fans that's awesome!
Update: Palin's appearance on SNL one week earlier pulled higher ratings (15 million viewers) than last night's episode which included an appearance by McCain (12 million viewers).
