John McCain and Fey's rogue Sarah Palin on 'SNL': Funny or tacky?
Really? Because isn't that kinda tacky? Somehow, I can't see Barack Obama making fun of Joe Biden.
Speaking about not having enough money to afford a prime time infomercial like Obama, McCain stood by grinning as Tina Fey as Sarah Palin in the bit. Early on, Fey's Palin talks about how "expensive campaigns can be" and lovingly caresses the lapel of her seemingly high-priced designer jacket.
Then in the skit, in which the nominees were hawking wares for QVC, Fey's Palin even pushes a set Joe Action Figures: Joe Six Pack, Joe the Plumber and Joe Biden. McCain, meanwhile, pitches a line of pork knives as well as some town-hall debate commemorative plates and McCain Fine Gold jewelry (making fun of the McCain-Feingold bill). And yes, yes, that really is his spokes model wife, Cindy McCain, showing off the gold jewelry.
Minutes later, Sarah goes "rogue," pushing her line of "Palin in 2012" T-shirts while McCain (off camera) asks what's going on.
What did you think?
Did McCain go too far appearing in a skit that makes fun of his running mate?
Or not far enough?
Will this skit help him win? Or help him lose? And will we ever be a Palin-free zone again?
