The Return of the Good John McCain

In case you missed it, you can watch John McCain on SNL last night below. This is the guy that I like, with a sense of humor, a fun guy. He really seems to be enjoying himself here. If this is a last ditch desperate effort to win the election, it is a lot better than the fear-mongering negative ads, and having the Hockey MILF talk about who Obama had lunch with 5 years ago.

Oh, and when I went to Hulu to get the video, an Obama ad played!

In other show biz news, I saw the movie "W" last night. Strange choice by Oliver Stone. It obviously wasn't intended to be historically accurate, as he inserted a bunch of w's famous malapropisms into private conversations. Yet it wasn't a parody. And some of the casting was week, particularly Jeffrey Wright, who completely lacks Colin Powell's presence, and Thandie Newton, who was horrible as Condi Rice. Richard Dreyfus, however, was brilliantly creepy as Cheney, and Josh Brolin made you forget he was acting as the Great Decider.

Finally, you will see Tina Fey again as the Hockey MILF on SNL. But, you should really be watching her excellent show "30 Rock". Catch old shows at
