Will Ferrell is back reprising his 'Saturday Night Live' impersonation of the U.S. President, appearing alongside Tina Fey's Sarah Palin.

Striking while the iron is hot, "" executive producer Lorne Michaels tapped to return to the sketch show as current U.S. President George W. Bush. Ferrell did the parody on the show's "Weekend Update" on Thursday, October 23 night, appearing alongside 's now-famous impersonation of Sarah Palin.

Among the things that Ferrell's Bush discussed in the skit was the election of between John McCain and Barack Obama. He commented that the presidential candidates are "heavily patriotized" and "display much characterization" and then he offered McCain and Palin, a "prime time, heavily publicized network endorsement from George W. Bush".

Fey's Palin then appeared, shook 'Bush''s hand and said that she has seen him on TV. When Ferrell said to her that the role of a vice president is "the most important in the land" and that president "can't do nothing without checking with the vice president", 'Palin' said that he had it the other way round. Darrell Hammond, standing as McCain, then came in to reluctantly receive the endorsement but his hand got held by Bush.

On other "SNL" news, actress reportedly will reprise her role as Michelle Obama in a not-yet-revealed episode. Earlier this week, it was also hinted that Barack Obama himself will appear on the show on November 1, three days before the election, but it has remained a speculation.

The video of the sketch can be watched below:
