Has Watching SNL Become a Civic Duty?

Posted By on Fri, Oct 31, 2008 at 12:18 PM

Some may think his campaign's a joke, but the AP is reporting that John McCain will appear on Saturday Night Live on Saturday -- tomorrow -- night.


He last appeared on the show in May and hosted it in 2002.

It's long been known that how Missouri voters decide will determine the election. Don't believe us?

Well read this Kansas City Star column published Thursday. Could it be in Missourians' best interest to -- wait for it -- watch SNL this weekend? It always makes for an awkward laugh, if not a platform for talking points.

McCain's opponent, Barack Obama, has already appeared on the show about a year ago.

Sarah Palin was on a few weeks ago.

Joe Biden, who is coming in at a distant fourth in the politics popularity contest, hasn't appeared on SNL, but he sure thought the VP Debate skit that spoofed him and Palin was uncontrollably funny.
