John McCain meets Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin

November 2nd, 2008 // 67 Comments

Before we dive into today’s posting, did everyone remember to set your clocks back? If you didn’t, congratulations, you can smoke/drink/pray to the Baby Jesus your face off for another hour because you’re ahead of the game!
The Superficial: We’re Like a Freakin’ National Treasure Over Here.

Senator John McCain stopped by Saturday Night Live last night and has to know he lost this thing. He did a QVC infomercial with Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin and this sketch had everything: Joe Biden, William Ayers, Cindy McCain (The real one!) and the infamous “Rogue Sarah.” Give it a watch then try not to build a time machine so you can jump ahead to Wednesday before you jab yourself in the eye with a lapel pin. In the meantime, I need to see a man about a flux capacitor.

UPDATE: It was a shoe. Never trust the homeless.

    True. The Brits outlawed slavery about 50 years before America. The Brits patrolled the east coast to stop the Muslims, and America sailed the West coast to stop the Portagee slavers.

    The only funny thing about that was when he was booed when he first came on. Call it quits, grandpa. No one’s buying your worn-out, war-mongering, stale ideas. Except maybe racists and white people over 70.

    I applaud McCain for being able to poke fun at himself, something Obama is completely unable to do since he thinks he’s the messiah come to earth. He wants to raise taxes exponentially for the wealthy, so who’s going to want to succeed in America if they’re just going to tax you into the ground? Prejudicing someone because they or their ancestors worked hard and accomplished something is just as wrong as prejudicing someone who’s skin is a different color. Who’s going to want to become a doctor or a lawyer if they’d make the same amount of money as the guy bagging groceries? The rich provide the employment, people, without them millions of Americans would be jobless. Maybe if we didn’t hand out tax dollars to the lazy slobs who refuse to work we could actually turn things around.

    America is about working hard to succeed, it’s not about cranking out children and then having your hand out for money to feed them. Every person I’ve ever seen use food stamps was buying chips, frozen pizza and cigarettes so forgive me if I’m not exactly jumping at the chance to have my hard earned money pay for their starving kids.

    Universal health care is a terrible idea. Again, part of the reason we have so many good doctors, dentists, ect. is because it’s a rich industry and a lot of people go into it to make money. Universal healthcare would equal cheaper procedures with less profit, thus equaling less doctors and lower standards out of desperation. Sure you can have heart surgery for $100 but the guy operating on you graduated from Jim’s House o’ Learnin’ with a 1.0 GPA.

    This would be the same for abortions, which if Obama gets his way would be completely legalized but also covered under universal health care which would mean even less competent doctors performing the incredibly dangerous operations.

    And I think it’s incredibly racist to even consider voting for Obama just because he’s black ( which is honestly a stretch ). Yet a lot of people are doing just that, you could read them a list of McCain’s policies and achievements and tell them they’re Obama’s and they’d believe you because they know no more about him than the color of his skin and his “Change” brainwashing mantra.

    Anyway, I’m done here.

    Remember in 1984 when Joe Biden was the first presidential cadidate to appear on SNL? It’s practically full circle, isn’t it?

  6. Oh, people.

    McCain is much funnier than Palin was. I don’t like his voting record, but he’s okay.

    Oh, and NO ONE has kids to get more money from the government. The cost of raising a child is much greater than tax cuts or welfare. The “Welfare Queen” driving a Cadillac and eating bonbons is a complete fabrication. Do a little research on the TANF program before you bitch that people are being fed from your tax money.

  7. Eponymous

    Anyone who votes for McCain is insane.

    I’m not a liberal.

    I’m white, and young, and intelligent.

    And I’m voting for Obama.

    If there were more like me, this country wouldn’t be in the hole we’re in, dug by Republicans for the past 8 years.

    How can you want 4 more years?

  8. He and Barama are part of the single party running for President. That’s right, there is only one choice regardless who you decide to pick based on what the media has spoon fed you. What you are going to get is merely a variation on a theme, not the change America really needs. We need an actual hard-hitting change, not a modification of what’s already there. Every election, this ruling party blows hundreds of millions, that could be used to help thousands of Americans, so they can do basically nothing to improve our country or our place the world, yet we stick with them over an over.

    Bob Barr actually represents change. Check it out.

  9. Stanky

    I’m voting for McCain because I’m white. It’s not racist, just ask the 90% of black people who are voting Obama.

    I also can’t bbring myself to vote for someone who is the race that fucked monkeys resulting in the AIDS virus and then believes that white America invented the virus to exterminate blacks.

  10. Shit

    Obama want to return taxes to where they were during the Clinton years. You know, when your country wasn’t in the shitter.

    Webmaster …. have I mentioned that you’re a fuckin’ idiot, lately? Well, you are!!

    #60….you do realize that it’s SPENDING that got the deficit where it is and not income. Fact: revenue increased during both major tax breaks (Reagan’s and Bush’s).

    #59….ignorance is bliss, you blissful idiot

    #57….try some independent research. Your basic facts are incorrect.

    #38….you need help

    #1-16….get a life!

  13. Where's Darkwing Duck?

    You should visit a black neighborhood, go to the grocery store there. Really? There a alot of welfare & food stamp recipients who drive expensive cars, have hi-tech home entertainment systems and live in shitty apartments. It’s called Ghetto-rich. Seriously, go to a poor, black neighborhood (Sorry, I guess it’s redundant to say poor, black)

    Tina just groped the elder’s ass right in the beginning! That’s like necrophilia!!!! DAMN, girl! :ppppp Even I have to say that McCain looked good on this one. But like that great poet Jojo would say, “it’s to little too late!” LOL He had a good run though. It’s a nice story to tell his grandchildren. Of course they’re probably in their twenties, but maybe they’re still into it.

  15. teebeela

    I’ve gotta say, that was pretty funny

  16. Maggie

    Wow, seriously? Bill Clinton was too busy having sex with anything that moved to do anything good for our country. His lax views on security and foreign affairs are what caused 9/11 and the resulting war. But of course Bush gets the blame for it despite his being left to clean up the giant mess that Clinton left.

    And I second #60, why would people want to go out and spend their money when half of it is being taken away by the government? Lowering taxes means people get to keep more of their paychecks and duh, they’re going to spend it and help the economy! It’s extremely basic here, people, try and get it through your heads.

    And I thoroughly encourage you all to read about Fairtax, which if we could get it passed would mean absolutely no taxes taken out of your paycheck and an increased sales tax. So you get to take everything you earn home and it’s only when you purchase something that you would pay tax. All of the drug dealers and under-the-board merchants who don’t currently have to pay anything in taxes would have to pay the same as the rest of us, the same goes for the illegal immigrants who come up here and don’t have to pay taxes since they’re not working legitimately.

  17. Narcissist

    McCain did some funny skits on there a few years ago. Classy speech when he conceded, too. I think his party advisors/controllers pushed him into some mistakes that he didn’t like. They didn’t crucify Palin for her disastrous impact, either.

    if this thing will work…
