    Link with video

    He appeared in a skit with Tina Fey as Palin and on Weekend Update. Funny stuff, he was a good sport.

    Ben Afleck also did a very funny Keith Olbermann spoof but I can't find the video anywhere.

    Heh. That's pretty funny. Here's the link to the Olbermann skit. It wasn't bad, but like most Olbermann speeches, I got bored about halfway through and moved on...

    BTW, I could almost vote for a McCain/Fey ticket. At least it'd be entertaining!

    You mean like Olbermann? I watch him quite often but he has crossed the line into blow hard territory.

    I was laughing histerically, granted I was high at the time lol


    What scares me is hes very good at acting like a good sport. It was funny, but it doesnt change how I see him and hopefully it doesnt change how anyone else sees him either.

    That was hilarious.

    Kudos to John for making some fun of himself.

    Olbermann definitely overdramatizes a lot, though it's always controlled. I've never seen him flip over to uncontrolled someone-get-the-strait-jacket type rage like O'Reilly.

    McCain looks so much more comfortable and at ease when he's on SNL, than during his rallies, interviews and debates. I think he hates his own stump speeches and talking points, and that he can't wait for this election to be over with so he can get rid of Palin and his neo/theo-con puppetmasters, and return to life in relative dignity.

    I agree. I really like him when he can be himself and not be run by the puppet masters. He was funny for the first time in a long time and a little humor can be good. I hope after this election if he looses and goes back to the Senate that he will regain his old values. The ones that he had when he ran in 2000.

    Yep. And maybe he should join Lieberman and become an independent. The GOP clearly has no room for high-profile, moderate representatives.

    In the primaries, McCain fought against a whole host of right-wing candidates and won. They should have taken the hint right there, that the country was swinging left and that the time had come for a more modern, center-right candidate. But no, the theo-con dinosaurs were hungry for the usual pro-life, pro-gun, pro-war, pro-fear, hatemongering candidate and refused to embrace McCain unless he crawled for them. So he sold his soul to the devil and lost all the independents and moderates in the process.

    These people, whom Obama referred to as the "incompetent subset" that has "kidnapped" the GOP, will have to be cast out in order for the party to have a fighting chance in the 21st century. They should use Joe the Plumber to unclog the pipes and flush out the Palins, the Roves, the Bushes and the Bachmanns and allow the likes of McCain to build a new platform based on more pragmatism and less ideology.

    JT Plumber is in the middle of the clog with all of them. It's time for some Draino.

    :D

    Ideologically, yes. JTP is one of them. What I meant is that they should use him as an actual plumber for once, not some creepy mascot.

    Really freaky stuff. I wonder what John McCain thought the first time he met Tina Fey? :)
