Senator John McCain appeared on Saturday Night Live November 1st in a skit that depicts the McCain campaign buying air time on QVC to counter Barack Obama's 30 minute infomercial which aired a few days ago. Cindy McCain appears as well.
McCain stands by smiling as Sarah Palin (portrayed by Tina Fey) is (figuratively) thrown under the McCain campaign bus. The joke is McCain and the joke is on Palin. McCain just comes across as extremely un-presidential, and next to the pathetically un-presidential "Palin" it's makes a matched set. McCain seems to endorse the comical mocking of Palin, including her Caribou Barbie wardrobe and her future (2012) presidential aspirations.
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).
