Don’t miss watching these videos of the celebrity roast between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama at last night’s 63rd annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in New York City, an event organized by the Catholic Archdiocese of New York.
The dinner was attended by mostly Democrats including Sen. Hillary Clinton.
If the format for the three presidential debates had been a celebrity roast, McCain would have won all three hands down. His comments about Hillary and Bill Clinton were everybody’s favorites. Finally, the nation gets to see the real McCain in action! He was fantastic with biting humor that brought roars of laughter throughout his performance. Obama was funny as well, but he lacked McCain’s impeccable comic timing and a few of his jokes fell flat.

This is part 3 - Obama roasting McCain
Savage Politics writes:
John McCain, by the admission of almost every single person present, including the Liberal Mainstream Media, dominated the night’s event and “took down the house” with his wit and comical observations about this election (to many people, the whole Hillary Clinton bid was their favorite, mine was his criticism of the Media).
Reader comments at The Caucus, The New York Times Political Blog, also appear to be giving the night to Sen. John McCain.
The Save Jersy Blog asks:
Watch for two things in particular:
1) McCain's Clinton comments
2) The applause McCain elicits when he expresses a belief that many in the heavily Democratic audience are "pulling" for him
