sympathy from voters, the Palin-McCain ticket has gone into showbiz, starring in famous shows that cover a much bigger audience than their political debates could ever have. Both shows are based in New York.

McCain now stars in his own show, called “The Late Show with John McCain.” To the surprise of everyone, the first guest of the show was its former host, David Letterman.  They talked about the two items that American people care most about: Palin’s qualifications and Obama’s relationship with Ayers.

“They (Obama and Ayers) are driving cross country and having dinner together,” claimed McCain. “And amongst Governor Palin’s greatest qualifications, the best one is that she has stood up for the truth and reminded this (the Obama-Ayers connection) to the American people. And don’t miss her in the next SNL. She will wipe the floor with Tina Fey. Yes, that one.”

When Letterman started asking harder questions, McCain interrupted him, “It’s not the time to raise anyone’s taxes, except yours. I guarantee you when I become president, I’ll do it. First executive order”

“I’m sorry, I screwed up,” apologized Letterman.

McCain finished the show announcing that tomorrow’s guest will be Joe the Plumber.

On the other hand, Governor Sarah Palin, from the Palin-McCain ticket, will become a permanent member of SNL, substituting Tina Fey who has recently been impersonating Palin.

“It’s about darn time I showed all them (Hockey Moms and Joe Sixpacks) who the real comedian is, and who the person who has palled with terrorists and wants to raise your taxes is,” said Governor Palin, confusing the attacks she was supposed to aim at Fey with the ones she’s been aiming at Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

the new star of a new videogame that will come out on November 4th, “Joe Bros.”

The game stars a new character named “Joe the plumber”, who has to go through several stages and complete tasks in order to earn money. Instead of a time clock, a bar dubbed “distribution of wealth” will follow Joe constantly and if it catches up with him, his money will start to be taxed more.

In the first stage, called “Plumbering the Union,” Joe the Plumber has to go through pipes and clean them in record time in order to obtain a plumbing license.

Later, in the “Drowned in documents” stage, Joe the Plumber has to fight against Demokoopa Troopas and legal documents in order to rescue a plumbing business from being overtaxed.

Finally, in the last level, “King Obawser”, Joe the Plumber fights King Obawser himself by evading his policies and cutting the bridge to nowhere in order to make King Obawser finally fall in the polls.

If a second player joins the game, he will take the role of Joe the Plumber’s brother: Joe Sixpack. Both characters can take Maverick Stars that appear at certain locations in the game to turn invincible for a while. They can also take secret Alaskan Oilpipes to drill their way to higher levels.
