Obama And McCain Laugh It Up All The Way To Russia

THE 63rd annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner to benefit Catholic charities, and Barack Obama and John MCCMaina re showing signs of humanity:

“I can’t shake that feeling that some people here are pulling for me,” McCain said, turning to the far side of the stage. “I’m delighted to see you here tonight, Hillary.”

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, and all others in the crowd, guffawed.

These people might be likeable yet:

McCain added that Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton “has been hammering away with me with epithets like, ‘hero.’”

McCain said that his rival was not fazed by being called, “That one,” during the second presidential debate. “He doesn’t mind at all,” McCain said, “in fact, he even has a pet name for me: George Bush.”

In a sign of just how much the media-McCain relationship has turned, the Arizonan stated that “the press is really an independent-minded, civic-minded, non-partisan group, like ACORN.”

“It’s going to be a long, long night at MSNBC if I manage to pull this thing off,” McCain said. “I understand that Keith Olbermann has ordered up his very own ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner. They can hang it up in his padded room”

McCain introduced Obama, who at one point joked that he was confused.

“I was originally told the venue would be Yankee Stadium,” he said. “Can somebody tell me what happened to the Greek columns that I requested?”

Obama said the venue was fine, though.

“I do love the Waldorf Astoria,” Obama said. “I hear from the doorstep you can see all the way to the Russian Tea Room.” It prompted much laughter from McCain.


Then Obama turned to the question McCain had been asking as of late: Who is the real Barack Obama?

“Contrary to the rumors you have heard, I was not born in a manger,” Obama said. “I was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father Jor-El to save the planet Earth.”

Regarding his name, Obama said that “Barack is actually Swahili for ‘that one’. And I got my middle name from somebody who obviously didn’t think I’d ever run for President.”
