McCain To Appear On SNL This Weekend
With the big presidential election just days away, it seems only fitting that one of the candidates would make an appearance on this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live. This Saturday night John McCain will be gracing the SNL stage with his presence. Amusingly enough, the guest host is noted Democrat Ben Affleck.
HR reported the news, saying no further details were reported other than that McCain would be appearing on the show. In addition to Ben Affleck hosting, American Idol winner David Cook is going to be the musical guest.
I have to say, it’s exciting that McCain is going out on a limb here by appearing on the show so close to the election. Not only could this give another huge boost to SNL’s ratings, similar to the one Sarah Palin’s appearance provided but we might actually get to see McCain’s funny side. Prior to his recent campaigning, which seems to have put him into almost entirely all-business mode, McCain often demonstrated his sense of humor in interviews. Check out his numerous appearances on Comedy Central’s Daily Show website for evidence of that. Here’s an old clip of McCain on The Daily Show from 2004:
