Real McCain appears with fake Palin on Saturday Night Live

NEW YORK CITY: The real John McCain and the fake Sarah Palin traded jokes on
Saturday (November 1 ) as the Republican presidential candidate took a break
from the campaign trail to appear on the comedy TV show “Saturday Night
Live.”
McCain poked fun at his cash-strapped campaign and got in a few digs at
rival Barack Obama in the show's opening skit with actress Tina Fey, whose
impersonation of McCain's running mate Palin has helped the NBC show enjoy
healthy ratings this fall.
McCain joked that while Obama had purchased a half-hour block of
airtime on all the major TV networks last week, his campaign could only afford
an appearance on the home-shopping channel QVC.
“These campaigns sure are expensive,” said Fey, feeling her
jacket in an joke poking fun at the reported 150,000 dollars (USD) expense
incurred by the Republican Party for Sarah Palin's wardrobe.
“They sure are,” McCain responded.
McCain and Fey hawked blank plates to commemorate the debates that
Obama had declined to participate in this summer, “pork knives” to
help cut out wasteful spending, and “fine gold” necklaces displayed
by his wife, Cindy, in honour of the McCain-Feingold law that limited money in
politics.
They also offered a talking doll of Democratic vice presidential
candidate Joe Biden.
Palin herself appeared on the show on Oct. 18, drawing its largest
audience since 1994.
McCain last appeared on “Saturday Night Live” in May, joking
about his age and urging Obama and New York Sen. Hillary Clinton to prolong
their battle for the Democratic nomination.
He also hosted the show in 2002.
