If the presidential election could be won by humor...

Recently the presidential candidates were at the Al Smith dinner, roasting each other. I just heard this in its entirety on public radio. It is so much more than the excerpts that were shown on the TV news. If you have a chance, look this up on U-Tube under Al Smith dinner. It is well worth it for the humor and the serious statements. I wish that the regular debates and speeches showed this view of our candidates. Humor isn't everything, but I can tell you that John McCain showed his better side at this dinner, and Barack Obama showed that he isn't as stiff as some people portray him.

  1. If a man can laugh at himself he can't be all bad. I enjoyed Palen's appearance on Saturday Night Live.


And what do you think?
