Self-Roasting

I enjoyed both candidates self and other-deprecating humor at The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation.

Pleasant break from "politics as usual" without escaping "politics as usual".

I'm glad Sarah Palin is doing SNL. Conservatives may decry that she is going into hostile waters, the butt of liberal latenight comedy; but it's important that conservatives go into hostile interviews and not hide; it's important to show we can also laugh with them, who laugh at us. Don't take their jabs at us so seriously. Just laugh it off and don't have your buttons so easily pushed. Stuff like this, however, is to be frowned upon.

I thought McCain cleaned up that night. He really set Obama up. A hard act to follow. But Obama was just not that funny most of the time. Interesting, though, which clips the major networks showed, and all but Fox edited out the long applause after McCain said, "I have a suspician there are people in this room secretly rooting for me." It was a set up to the Hillary line, but the place broke out in applause (which was cut out in the replay).
