SNL: Joe the Plumber is McCain’s imaginary friend

By Griffin · October 17th, 2008 · No Comments

Here’s last night’s SNL sketch of the final debate, mostly focused on John McCain’s obsession with Joe the Plumber.  The notion that Joe is McCain’s imaginary friend actually isn’t too far from the truth.  McCain thought Joe was a plumber making over $250,000 who would pay higher taxes under Obama’s plan, and an upstanding, tax-paying, unbiased observer.  Yeah, about all of that– including Joe’s name…. not so much.

UPDATE: Sarah Palin is scheduled to appear on SNL this weekend, which seems to me like a realization by the McCain campaign that the Tina Fey character is killing Palin’s image. And I’m sure Palin has some personal thoughts of her own on the whole thing. The question is: Will she say it to Tina Fey’s face?
