John McCain took a break from campaigning this weekend to open Saturday Night Live with a “special message” and to poke fun at his campaign’s finances. “This past Wednesday Barack Obama purchased air time on three major networks. We, however, can only afford QVC,” McCain said. Tina Fey, impersonating Sarah Palin, quickly interjected “These campaigns sure are expensive,” as she stroked her suit to allude to the VP candidate’s $150,000 campaign wardrobe. A hilarious assortment of politically-inspired kitchen ware, Joe action figures, and jewelry (McCain Fine Gold) followed.
