UPDATE: Obama cancels SNL appearance.
Over the weekend , Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama will appear on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live. Although SNL lost most of its creative juices long ago, the show's writers were thankfully reinvigorated during the primaries. This one should be fun. How much do you want to bet the Republican noise machine will use this and Obama's recent appearance on Letterman as further "proof" Obama is more Hollywood celeb than presidential timber? Of course the John McCain campaign will push this silly meme. At the same time they shop around Sarah Palin to the covers of People, Time and Newsweek— and deny it !—and will forget McCain's own appearance on last season's finale of SNL.
