John McCain, Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snowe to Guest on 'Parks and Recreation'

 

U.S. Senators John McCain, Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snowe may find themselves at odds politically, but on one issue they all agree: Appearing on "Parks and Recreation" is a great way to get some face time with the American public.


McCain and Snowe, both Republican, and Boxer, a Democrat, guest star on an upcoming episode of the NBC sitcom set in Washington, D.C., the network told TheWrap.

In the episode, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) travels to the nation's capital to visit her significant other Ben (Adam Scott), who's working on a congressional campaign in D.C.

McCain tweeted a picture of himself with Poehler on Thursday, hinting that the episode might be award-worthy.

"Had a great time shooting @ParksandRecNBC today w/ Amy Poehler -- I think it's an Emmy!" McCain joked.

That just might make up for the whole failed 2008 presidential campaign ...

The episode will air Sept. 27.
