(Newser) – John McCain’s campaign is considering having Sarah Palin spoof spoofer Tina Fey by going on NBC and performing a rendition of Fey’s American Express commercial, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Saturday Night Live won’t air again for two weeks, but Palin may make a cameo on the network’s first Weekend Update spin-off special, slated for Thursday.
