YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (CNN) - Mandatory stops on the GOP campaign trail this year: Pennsylvania. Florida. Saturday Night Live.

Two weeks after running mate Sarah Palin made an appearance on the late-night comedy show, a McCain campaign aide tells CNN that the Republican presidential nominee will appear on the NBC program tomorrow night.

The Arizona senator has appeared on the show several times over the years.

McCain's most memorable appearance on the long running show was in October 2002, when he hosted the program for a night: In a spoof commercial hawking an album called "McCain Sings Streisand," sang several of the Democratic loyalist's songs.

    What a joke for John McCain to be on SNL. He and Sarah should be clowns for circus instead of running the government. We don't want these clowns in White House.

    John McCain & Sarah Palin are not trustworthy just like President Bush & Vice President Cheney.

    Independent now:

    Apparently you never watch "Morning Joe" on MSNBC – they trash Obama every single morning to the point where i could not watch any more – every day – "why can't he close the deal" – Joe Scarborough, Mike Murphy, Mika B. , Pat Buchannan – they LOVE to talk down Obama every morning. If you want to see constant adoration for McCain just tune in at 6 a.m. or of course – FOX runs McCain love spots 24/7.

    Let Senator McCain go on SNL. He won't be talking the issues, he will be making fun of himself. It's kinda sad actually.

    TO: MN VOTER –

    Your very clever but don't represent the 60% of us who are voting for Obama in MN or probably even the 38% favoring McCain. MN is better than that....move to Alaska if you want to aim low.

    JOE THE PLUMBER is a SKIN HEAD and has the hair cut to prove it!!! He was caught on camera speaking to "so-called" supporters about Israel and even though the "other guy" was off camera – you got a "head full" of what he was saying and what he stood for.

    Then, Joe the "PUMPER" agreed with him and shook his hand... You already can tell the crowd he is collecting is not your BEST CROWD of people. He and PA'IN are very capable of "igniting" an already "sensitive" moment in our history and cause problems in the very near future.

    They are all (SNLs – SorryNincompoopLosers!!!) and all they have left is appearing on SNL.............. OBAMA/BIDEN 2008-2016!!!

    McCain is no better than his partner Sarah so they should not the attacks and talk about the issues. Joe the Plumber is not an issue.

    My vote is NOT FOR SALE – AT ANY PRICE.

    But if yours is, here's some FACTS to all who love the Obama Tax Plan.

    I went to his website and used the "savings calculator". Some quick numbers for you…

    My wife and I combined make about 100K. We no longer have dependents, and we have a mortgage. Popped those numbers into his calculator – I save $1800.

    So let's see… averaged out, me and my wife each get a raise of 42 cents an hour.

    YIPPEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

    So if my vote was for sale… which IT IS NOT… we'd get an extra Domino's pizza (no toppings) every week!

    Do the math people. What would you rather have – a cheese pizza or your job?
    -------------------------------–

    What you neglected to say was how much you saved under McCain. Could it be that you didn't save SH!T under McCain's tax plan? How much is your mortgage, I want to see what you're talking about based on your post or are you just full of crap. Just unnecessary hate against a man who has not done anything to you.

  10. Not Joe!

    McCain funded Terrorists Ayres, and Kilada. I saw that last night too, why isn't more of the press investigating this!
