THE ALFRED E. SMITH DINNER

Before you click away from this page!... I promise promise promise these will make you laugh. Both candidates at their best (to be honest, John McCain is FANTASTIC here), alternating between actual comedy and bouts of sincerity. I really liked these. An altogether different approach from what we'll be hearing the next two and a half weeks:





See! Who is this guy? And where has he been the last six months?





And there's your Senator from Illinois.

We'll be in Atlanta on election night so maybe our friends in O'Brother can sell their van and bring some flat screen goodness to the show. An electoral count without high definition is barely an electoral count at all.

Vote early! Vote often!

Watched it all! Definitely worth seeing. Both candidates did a wonderful job-- they were so warm. It's hard to imagine that in just seventeen days all of this will finally be over.

I don't know if the candidates themselves were funny so much as the writers who prepared those jokes for them to recite.

Mornin Glories...writers candidates or bw... that was funny, I don't care who your voting often for...and very refreshing....I wonder who'll be making the coffee and cinnamon rolls!...maybe I can talk Barry into coming to the show and bringing his new flat screen...
