I LOVED the part where he talked about Mickey Mouse being registered to vote and said that they were taking his paw prints... LOL!

McCain’s speech was hilarious! I wish everyone could see this side of McCain on the campaign trail.

Obama wasn’t bad either, but McCain stole the show!

McCain was funnier than most professional comics tonight. I watched it live and was most impressed.

McCain was extremely funny and pointed. He really got Hillary laughing. Excellent. Obama was uncomfortable and not very funny.

The liberals effing got us this time. I’d like to strangle them.

Someone uploaded a distorted and delayed soundtrack version of the a McCain James Jackson dinner speech. Anyone searching for the video on YouTube will get this shitty piece of video instead of a clean copy. Nice work libs!

Obama’s not used to speaking to people who don’t love him. This is probably a big pro-life crowd.

I watched it live on CSPAN. McC was great, BO was quite good.

It’s an old NYC tradition, a “must appear” annual event for all New York politicians and every four years, the Presidential candidates. Speeches are always humorous. BO spoiled his by injecting some bloviating at the end, blah blahing about the need to help those less fortunate etc etc. Up to then he was okay. (His funniest line: My real middle name is actually “Steve”.)

Barry was slick, cool ... McCain was really funny and he was ON!

Didn’t you love the crowd’s cheers when he was slamming MSNBC? And then when he thought there might be some in the NY Democrat town pulling for him. I was heartened at the applause he got.

In the first picture Obama has that anointed look about him and the Cardinal looks positively ill. Inviting an avowed supporter of baby killers to a Catholic event is like inviting Cindy Sheehan to a rally of patriotic veterans.

This is probably a big pro-life crowd.

Not probably...in '96 Cardinal O'Connor did not invite Bubba due to his stand on abortion. And in '04, both W and Lurch were not asked to attend due to their "partisan differences." I'm shocked they are honoring Barry tonight.

No, this is just one messed up video. Way out of sync, numerous missing words. Made it tough to follow. I hope they come up with a better video.

Cool your jets, Al Baby...the Al Smith dinner is an annual charity event that raises money for Catholic health-care services.

He could not pronounce “diocese” at the Al Smith Dinner. Pathetic.

And last year both Rudy and Hillary skipped the dinner. Yes, you must wonder why. Cardinal O’Connor would never have allowed this.

Excellent, excellent job that McCain did. I hope a lot of people see this.

Also, see post #25, which has the first part of the speech, and doesn’t have sound and synch problems.

Priceless to see hillary laughing her head off at the Zoroastrian New Year joke.

This is great!
