Monday Afternoon Diversion: Election Day Eve Edition

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Nov 3, 2008 10:00PM

Are you feeling the jitters? Can you feel the electricity in the air? Election Day is tomorrow and we can't wait. It's always exciting and this historic election should provide plenty to cover, both nationally and locally. As this long, at times very bitter campaign draws to a close, let's look back at two of the Presidential candidates sillier moments. First, is this weekend's appearance on SNL by John McCain, with a little help from Tina Fey and his wife Cindy. And after that is last year's SNL Halloween skit featuring Barack Obama. Want more SNL political tomfoolery? Check out their Presidential Bash special tonight, which will replay some of their best political skits from this election year and features a few Second City alums.

We admit, Sen. McCain got quite a few laughs out of us with this one.

Ah, the days of the Hillary-Obama rivalry. Those were simpler times, no?
