McCain on SNL

Just a quick comment as I am catching up on last night’s SNL episode.

It’s a pretty bad sign that McCain is willing to “poke fun” at his own campaign with Tina Fey, playing running mate Sarah Palin, joking about how Palin has been a rogue, possibly setting herself up for her own campaign in 2012, and the controversy over how much she spent on clothing for the campaign trail.

I think that goes beyond “poking fun” when it hits as close to home on such embarassing topics as that.  I think the writers at SNL had way more leeway with McCain than usual, and he would not have let that happen if he weren’t desperate.

Oh, by the way, Prop 8 is gaining ground here in CA.  I am not happy to hear that…
