For those of you who missed the SNL opener this evening, I think it’s safe to say that McCain admitted he was going to lose when he showed up for a guest appearance. This wasn’t a funny skit, and in fact it showed him as quite unpresidential. The jokes were very self-deprecating, and some of them really played poorly. In fact, I could almost hear one of the aides assuring him that it would play well “with the young people.” We’ll see what Tuesday holds, but if he manages to win, his self-portrayal as a duddering, senile old man with a geriatric audience probably won’t stand the test of time. I am on record as an undecided registered Republican.
