Live From New York … McCain Acting Himself!
The fact McCain looked so relaxed alongside the anti-Palin drove home just how little chemistry he has with the real one.
I was also taken with Tina Fey’s reaction in the parting moment of the sketch (above) in which she broke character and gave McCain a look of genuine appreciation. What it suggested was — when he’s not trying to be something he’s not (which McCain’s self-effacing Weekend Update sketch established as almost never happening), he’s potentially likable.
