A Moment of Campaign Levity

At the Al Smith dinner this week, an annual event honoring the former New York Governor and the “first Catholic and Irish-American to be a major U.S. party’s nominee for president,” presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama roasted one another (and poked fun at themselves). It’s a shame that this more civil — and entertaining — attitude isn’t reflected in regular campaign rhetoric. (tip)

Bless YouTube. Here is each candidate’s roast. Enjoy! (McCain is funnier!)
