Will Ferrell's 'Bush' Gives Tina Fey's 'Sarah Palin' a Strong Endorsement



Thursday's "Saturday Night Live" election special welcomed Will Ferrell back playing President Bush in the opening sketch, with Ferrell's Bush offering an unwanted endorsement for the McCain- Palin ticket. The sketch was cowritten by Adam McKay and also starred Tina Fey as Sarah Palin meeting Bush for the first time.



As Ferrell's Bush puts it, the election is between "the hot lady and the Tiger Woods guy" and "I'm out of here in a few months, so screw it." He has also declared the White House a "bummer-free zone."
