With the election just two days away, Arizona Sen. and Republican presidential hopeful John McCain made fun of himself last night on Saturday Night Live.

His running mate, Sarah Palin, was simply made fun of by others.

Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel, a radio duo known as Masked Avengers and famous for their prank phone calls (often to celebrities) in Montreal, Quebec, released a recording of a six-minute call to the Alaska Governor.

Sarah Palin thought she was speaking with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Despite numerous hints - an exaggerated accent, ridiculous comments and jokes left and right - that this was bogus, Palin didn't appear to pick up on them.

In the conversation, the impersonators discuss, among other things, the "Joe le Plumber," shooting animals from helicopters, and Carla Bruni in bed. Really.

Listen to the prank call in the clip below...

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 ...

Two Saturdays ago, comedic worlds collided as Tina Fey's Sarah Palin came face to face at least with the real Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live.

Fey's 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin, who was also on hand, shared his impressions of the Republican Vice Presidential candidate with David Letterman.

While he spoke very kindly of the show, and of Sarah Palin for the most part, Baldwin simply couldn't resist referring to the Alaska Governor as "Bible Spice" and not "someone who [he] wanted her hand on the nuclear button at any point."

Here's a portion of his Late Show interview ...

Tina Fey says Sarah Palin offered to have 17-year-old Bristol Palin babysit Fey's three-year-old daughter Alice on filming Saturday Night Live two weeks ago.

"Gov. Palin was like, 'Oh, did Alice go home? Oh, 'cause Bristol woulda' babysat.' She offered Bristol Palin to babysit Alice," Fey told Conan O'Brien Tuesday.

"And it was Bristol's birthday, too," Fey said.

"I was like yeah, that's exactly what 17-year-old Bristol Palin wants to do at Saturday Night Live... babysit the toddler of the lady that gooks on her mom."

Tina Fey's impressions of the Republican V.P. candidate have been a highlight of the campaign season. Check then out in our library of Sarah Palin videos (real and Tina's)!

As we reported last week, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the lone conservative voice on ABC's The View, campaigned in the crucial state of Florida over the weekend for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate.

Free of the shackles of Joy Behar and company, Hasselbeck boasted that for a change, she finally got to talk for five minutes without being interrupted.

Here's Elisabeth's introduction of the V.P. nominee in Tampa. In addition to extolling the All-American values of the GOP ticket, Hasselbeck had some harsh words for Barack Obama - especially over the Sarah Palin wardrobe criticism ...

Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin sure chose some pro-America names for her five kids: Track Palin, Trig Palin, Bristol Palin, Willow Palin and Piper Palin. Yes, we're serious about the first two.

Ever wonder what would your name be if Sarah Palin was your mom? Would you be doomed to years of middle school mockery by being named Flower, Twig or Truck?

With all those crazy liberals she works with, The View's resident conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck can't get a word in edgewise on her own talk show.

Fortunately for her, that won't be an issue this weekend as she will be on hand to introduce Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at campaign rallies in Florida.

“I am more than honored to be there, so I will be flying there to travel with her and meet some pretty interesting people,” she said today on The View.

“That’s an honor, I’m excited to do it, and I’ll have some stories I’m sure on Monday,” added Hasselbeck, who was mercifully not maimed by her co-hosts.

You Betcha

Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sarah Palin will share the campaign stage.

According to ABC News, bringing Elisabeth on board comes as the John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign attempts to boost its support among female voters.

Hasselbeck wore a John McCain T-shirt on Tuesday's program, butting heads with liberal co-host Joy Behar as a result and continuing the feud Wednesday.
