McCain on "SNL"

John McCain, along with "Sarah Palin," has a little fun at his own expense -- and especially at Palin's.

Give John McCain some credit: He wasn't just willing to go on "Saturday Night Live" the weekend before Election Day. He was willing to go on and let them make quite a bit of fun of him, and his running mate, and he seemed to be enjoying himself all the while. (Of course, given the reports of tension between the McCain and Palin camps, maybe there's good reason he didn't mind Tina Fey's impression of Sarah Palin, which was even better than it has been in the past.)

Watch the sketch in which McCain appeared below. As a special bonus, below that, check out Ben Affleck in a sketch poking fun at MSNBC's Keith Olbermann.
