In this final installment, presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain square off over the economy and foreign policy, while running mates Joe Biden and Sarah Palin spare over their qualifications to be V.P. nominees. At the end of the show, the audience will vote for the next Political Idol. Produced by the FREEDOM TOAST company, the show is a satirical cabaret that takes aim at all political parties and positions.
