Presidential Candidates to Square Off on Last Comic Standing Finale

at . Comments

Considering how hilariously inept the John McCain campaign for President has been so far, it only makes sense that the Republican hopeful would appear on the season finale of Last Comic Standing this Thursday night.

He'll be joined by rival Barack Obama in a pair of pre-taped segments for the show. We've uncovered the clips and posted them below.

The Obama ad opens with the Democrat standing behind a lectern, telling Americans: "Hi, I'm Barack Obama and I'm running for president of the United States. Remember to vote for me in November. And if you don't think I'm funny, you've obviously never seen me bowl."

A picture of him bowling appears on-screen.

Obama then turns to someone off-screen and says, "I'm not going to deliver this line any better than that" and walks off.

The McCain ad starts with him announcing: "I'm John McCain and I approve this message. A president has to be funny. They just have to be."

Photos of a slack-jawed, cowboy-hatted President George W. Bush; a sax-playing President Bill Clinton; and a Bonzo-bedtiming pre-president Ronald Reagan appear.

"Unfunny presidents only serve one term if they win an election at all," McCain continues. "I may not be the last comic standing, but I'm definitely the funniest candidate for president."

"Yeah -- funny-looking!" says an off-camera voice.

"Who said that?" replies a faux-angry McCain.
