For Those Who Missed It ...

[Political Entertainment] A character called "the crazy McCain-rally lady" was featured on SNL (ThNL?) "Weekend Update" tonight. For those who missed, it, here is a brief clip featuring Gayle Quinnell, the McCain campaign volunteer upon whom the character was based:



And, here's the spot-on "Weekend Update" lampoon:

Update: Unfortunately, it looks like NBC had the clip taken off YouTube; you are free, however, to navigate to NBC's labyrinthine Website, poke around for the SNL clip, watch a 30 second ad for Crackberry or Dove soap, and then be presented with the entire half-hour episode broken up into three 10-minute "chapters." I believe the correct one is the middle chapter. Good luck, readers. And thank you, NBC.

    Much better quality, far fewer ads, you can watch clips or the entire episode. Here's a link to the one you're talking about:
