Candidates Square Off for Laughs at Charity Dinner
(and McCain Brings Down the House)
For more than sixty years, the Alfred E. Smith Dinner has been a chance for those on the political scene to let their hair down and have a few laughs. Tonight was no different. Both John McCain and Barack Obama took to the microphone in what was more open-mic-night than oratorical stump speech.
Personally, I have never seen John McCain so sharp and focused. Not to mention hilarious.
So please enjoy a few laughs — this has been a long, long election cycle, you deserve it.
