The Republican presidential ticket appeared on Saturday Night Live's "Presidential Bash," while the Democrats were represented by their stand-ins. John McCain opened the show by poking fun at NBC's programming lineup, while Sarah Palin awkwardly joked about revoking SNL's broadcast license.
Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and John Edwards also delivered their own special messages.
McCain's appearance followed his previous SNL cameo with Palin in a skit that featured them addressing the nation as QVC hosts. Joking about his campaign's financing troubles, McCain said, "Look, would I rather be on three major networks? Of course. But I'm a true maverick -- a Republican without money"
In the funniest moment of the sketch, Palin darted to the side and announced she was "going rogue", holding up a "Palin in 2012" T-shirt
McCain also appeared in a second skit on "Weekend Update," in which he joked about going "Reverse Maverick" and "Sad Grandpa" to try and win the election.
