McCain Yucks It Up On SNL

John McCain proved he has a sense of humor when he appeared on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Watch as the Republican pretends to be on QVC, the only channel he can afford, and sell his campaign. Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin, meanwhile, sells her 2012 candidacy, or the possibility that she’s going to be “the white Oprah.”

Cindy McCain also appears and strokes “McCain’s fine gold,” as in the campaign reforming McCain-Feingold Act. Clever!

McCain also appeared during Weekend Update, during which he suggested some “last minute” tactics, like the “double maverick” and “sad old man:” “That’s where I get on TV and go, ‘C’mon, Obama’s gonna have plenty of chances to be president! It’s my turn! Vote for me!’”

Watch that, after the jump…

    I like McCain much better on SNL than in r/l.

    Hasn’t he been doing the “Reverse Maverick” ever since he went to Liberty University?

    Cindy McCain totally belongs on QVC.

    You know…I don’t actually like politicians appearing on comedy shows. I suspect it’s an attempt to pull the teeth out of political satire.
