With the presidential election just days away, Republican candidate John McCain drew laughs – often at his own expense – on Saturday Night Live last night.

In response to Barack Obama's purchase of airtime on several major networks on Wednesday night, McCain lamented that he could only afford airtime on QVC.

"I'm a true Maverick: a Republican without money!" the Arizona Senator joked that, "My only showbiz connections are Jon Voight and Heidi from The Hills."

By his side were wife Cindy McCain, who lent a hand selling "McCain Fine Gold Jewelry," and his running mate Sarah Palin ... a.k.a. SNL alum Tina Fey.

Here's the opening Saturday Night Live sketch ...

Last night on Saturday Night Live's special Thursday election edition, President George W. Bush (Will Ferrell) finally gave his coveted endorsement to John McCain (Darrell Hammond) and especially to his running mate Sarah Palin (Tina Fey)...

The last time John McCain canceled an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman, the host was not amused, and he has not let go of his fury.

McCain has been the butt of Letterman’s disdain (probably somewhat feigned, but certainly not entirely) since. So you knew he was gonna show up this time.

Late Show Interview

After a two-hour airport delay nearly stranded him in Philadelphia, the Republican presidential hopeful hired a helicopter to whisk him to N.Y. He made it!

Below is John McCain's entire interview last night, which he began by addressing his previous cancellation, explaining it simply, "I screwed up"  ...

After canceling an appearance last month at the last second and causing some bruised feelings (and hilarious rants, parts I and II) on David Letterman's part, John McCain is finally coming back to the Late Show this Thursday, October 16.

Unless the economy collapses a second time and he must suspend his bid for the presidency to rescue it. Or be interviewed by Katie Couric a few blocks over.

Arizona Sen. and Republican Presidential candidate John McCain from a previous appearance on The Late Show. He famously bailed on Letterman in September.

Meanwhile, his running mate, Alaska governor Sarah Palin, is set to appear on Saturday Night Live, the late-night show which has been skewering her of late.

Sarah Palin will appear Saturday, October 25, with a rehearsal date scheduled for the day before. No word on whether Tina Fey will be on the episode as well.

It's no Tina Fey making us laugh/cry as Sarah Palin - in fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a Barack Obama impression that's less funny than Saturday Night Live's.

But if the point of the sketch below was to highlight the absurd format and utter worthlessness of this week's presidential debate, then well done, SNL!

This faux debate aired during the show's special, condensed Thursday prime-time edition last night. It's pretty good, and even includes a Bill Murray cameo.

Last night, David Letterman berated John McCain for the second straight evening after the Republican presidential candidate canceled his scheduled appearance on The Late Show Wednesday to focus on the nation's economic crises.

Classic Dave. Follow this link for the previous night's Letterman rants. Then watch the clip below for more jokes and general McCain-Palin skewering ...

Yesterday, Republican presidential candidate John McCain was supposed to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman, but he bailed at the last second to head to Washington and deal with the country's mounting economic crisis.

Far from pleased by this charade, Letterman went off on some serious rants - even by his standards - against McCain and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. No Brad Hanson jokes were made, but just about everything else was fair game:

John McCain Who?!

Lehman Brothers, Sheman Brothers.

The John McCain campaign has found an issue on which it can release a definitive, meaningful statement: Lindsay Lohan!

Looking For Indrina?

It all started when The Chicago Sun-Times quoted an unnamed high-level Barack Obama insider this morning,  who said that camp turned down Lohan's offer to host an event because she "is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us."

In response, McCain blowhard spokesman Tucker Bounds told TMZ: "So let me get this straight -- they turned away Lindsay Lohan, but Barack Obama has friends like unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and convicted felon Tony Rezko? Maybe LiLo is just too upstanding for Barack Obama."

Yes, it really does appear that Bounds referred to Lohan as "LiLo."

We can imagine the eyes rolling on Tommy Vietor, an Obama spokesperson, when he replied: "Glad to see they're focused on the important issues over in McCain HQ."

Lohan, it should be noted, is on record as having serious issues with Sarah Palin. See how intelligent one can be when one isn't on drugs all the time?
