Some politicians can be hilarious! Others can be averagely funny.

McCain’s speech at the Alfred E. Smith dinner rocked the house. Watch the whole fifteen minutes. You won’t be sorry. I want to see more of this McCain. I especially loved the end, where he pumped up what was sure to be the greatest speech ever at the Al Smith dinner and made sure to jokingly set the expectations for Obama’s speech very high. Really, the whole thing is a great throttling of The One. Watch it. Do it now.

The One also gave a speech, and it had some funny lines, but most of them were “It’s funny because it’s true” laughs at Obama’s expense. And of course, it didn’t meet my expectations. I also couldn’t get over his laughing at his own jokes. Every other joke he had to pause to laugh or suppress a laugh, and it made me wonder if he even looked over the speech before standing at the podium. The part about not being born in a manger was funny, and the followup about actually being Superman would have been funny if he wouldn’t have said “my father Jor. El.” Everyone just says “Jor-El.” Totally ruined his geek cred. I do laugh my butt off when he whines about Fox News not being in the tank for him. I think this makes three times in one week! “Wah. Hannity doesn’t get the tingle up his leg. Where’s my baw baw?”

In other news, Larry King says Sarah Palin is going to be on SNL this week. She’ll do a great job if she takes Frank’s advice.

  1. You called that one right. McCain ROCKED it last night….

  2. McCain did AWESOME! I enjoyed every bit of it…Obama on the other hand… I couldn’t get over the fact that he was the only one laughing at his jokes…way to go STEVE…er…Hussein. Scary Evil DORK!

  3. Big Bang Hunter (pumping you up)

    - Take ? mon-ami, the pools, they are once again tightening. I don’t think Wonderboy can pull it off, even with fraudulent voters, if he can’t maintain at least a +10 point lead going into election night, likely jury-rigged PEW exit polls not withstanding. The ghosts of Bradly’s past loom ever large.

    - Be a bit of poetic justice, if in hindsight, a lowly Ohio plumber brings down “teh One”. Scratch Socialist, find a Facist.

  5. You know the funny thing is my liberal brother-in-law (he can’t help it, he’s in college) was impressed with Palin on SNL. He didn’t know McCain had hosted Saturday Night Live before.

    Man was he shocked. Youtube… here he comes.

    I guess my point is, McCain has a great sense of humor. I especially dug his “Hippie Teacher’ character.
