Saturday Night Live had presidential hopeful Senator John McCain appear last night on the late night show, and we have the choice clips provided by NBC to revisit the segments from the show.
McCain made light of the fact that his campaign has less cash than that of Sen. Barack Obama.
The Arizona senator lamented on "Saturday Night Live," had to settle for shilling collectible products on QVC.
"I'm a true maverick -- a Republican without money," McCain joked. At his side was Tina Fey, who did her impression of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
"These campaigns sure are expensive," said Fey-as-Palin, touching the lapel of her jacket.
He and Fey pushed a set of "pork knives" for cutting items out of budgets, a set of plates commemorating a summer series of McCain-Obama town hall debates (because the debates didn't take place, the plates were blank), and a set of "Joe dolls" "Joe Six-pack", "Joe the Plumber" and Joe Biden.
Pull the cord on the last doll and it talks for 45 minutes, Fey-as-Palin said.
"It's great if you want to clear out a party," McCain quipped.
