That was great. McCaiin’s really good comedic timing for someone who’s so dry when he’s giving a speech.

They are promoting QVC shopping network, it is rather silly with Tina Fey going rougue and promoting a 2012 t shirt.

I thought he was GREAT! Very funny...McCain Fine Gold. LOL My team McCain/Palin make me proud that they have a sense of humor and can deliver it just right.

His appearance probably didn’t get him any votes, though it might have, but it definitely didn’t lose him any either.

I’m shocked at the long skit they gave him - and Cindy on there too! They gave him some good material - pretty funny stuff.

Pretty good in the opening. Teh said they couldn’t afford network TV time like Obama so they are doing theirs on QVC.

It was awesome. Cindy McCain was on also. I was surprised that Tina Fey even gave a couple good jabs against 0bama/Biden.

I noticed that Tina gave McCain a big smile toward at the end when he said, “Live from New York...”

Doesn’t seem like much, but, for her, that’s a miracle.

It was setup as a QVC spot (the only channel the campaign can afford) with McCain & Palin, and guest Cindy McCain, selling commemorative blank plates of the Town Hall debates, jewelry, etc. with Sarah speaking asides to the camera that she’ll either be in the WH or the next Oprah.

The other shoe might be the long awaited Keith Olderman skit. Supposedly it “savages” KO. Maybe Obama will appear then?

Most of it was good, but I have trouble understanding why he’d appear with someone who’s spent the past 6 weeks mocking his running mate, insulting her and her family, and generally abhorring every thing she stands for. I mean, you’d like to think McCain would be sticking up for her more than essentially endorsing Tina Fey’s impression

The blank collector plates...a not-so-subtle reminder of the ten town hall debates that Obama decllined to participate in...

Go to Youtube and watch his comedy routine from the Alfred Smith Dinner. He knocked it out of the park, and made a fool of NObama.

one jab at Biden — and nothing at Bambi — recycled the same dumb false story about Palin 2012...

Hey, I thought the skit was VERY favorable to both McCain and Palin! Johnny Mac came off very well. And it was funny, too. “McCain Fine Gold”!

Yes, since every Presidential candidate he has supported (since Mondale) has lost -- he announced his endorsement for McCain.

A lame joke, but it was moderately funny.

Even when Tina Fey held up the Palin in 2012 t-shirt the New York audience cheered. It didn’t laugh, it didn’t jeer, it didn’t boo - it cheered. That must’ve stung.

SNL, what a LAME A$$ SHOW!!!! This is supposed to be hip and cutting edge? Give me a break. It's weak. And corny. And lame as hell. McCain did GREAT, however! Very personable, even if it was a lame skit. It was the best skit so far, but still pretty lame. Okay, I guess it was lame, right?

Come on get Cookie on!

And no more McCain. He did good, and so did Cindy. Let that image stay with the people.

"What do you think?"

Based on the "View" segment I just watched, I doubt a show could possibly be any stupider than this one. I used to like the show a lot 25-30 years ago.

The Right is just not happy unless it is getting “approval” from our masters on the Left.

The Left owns all forms of media, therefore they own us.

And we must grovel.

That wasn't courageous -- she was making fun of something Sarah said a couple of days ago.

And even I cringed when I read about it. Sarah forgot what the First Amendment actually limits -- the government, not the drive-by media.
