He was great. There were a lot more hearty laughs at his speech than Obamas. McCain made some good points along with his humor.

He killed. Hillary almost fell off her chair at the Zoroastrian Holiday joke.

I just saw it on the local news. He said something like "Even in this room filled with proud Manhattan Democrats, I have a feeling some of you are pulling for me."

He received loud and sustained applause. So long, in fact, he squelched his punchline: "Hi, Hillary!"

I think the first link is the beginning of his speech and the second link continues the speech. You need to watch them both.

His jabs at the mainstream media were the best.

The look on Katie Couric's face was priceless.

You are correct...I finally got them straight I hope :)

First part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRSmQqw65Pg
Second part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZXX9Wfl5S0

Missing some sound at the very end of the second one...Regardless, he will have you laughing and enjoying a much needed comic relief during this stressful election!

That's because most Americans can relate to John and Sarah.

Obama has more in common with Yasser Arafat and Idi Amin than he does with me.

It's that simple.

McCain was a laugh riot! The man has superb slapstick delivery skills - definitely worth watching! It reprises on Hannity & Colmes at midnight Eastern.

That is one of the most impressive performances of comic frame argumentation I have ever seen.

It was like the Dole Gore humor epiphanies but prior to the election.

This could be quite helpful.

He was simply fabulous. Many a truth is said in jest and his comments regarding Olberman/Matthews had to leave a mark. His closing comments toward Obama proves he is a class act.

I about fell over when he implied that Hillary was pulling for him. I think that line got the most laughs.

McCain said he couldn’t help feeling that there are
people in this crowd pulling for him (the underdog) ...
got a huge applause and cheering. Then the punch line.

Great set up.

McCain was hysterically funny with flawless delivery.

I loved the jabs at MSNBC, especially Chris Matthews and

Keith Olbermann. McCain said that he used to be a favorite

guest of Chris Matthews, but he was thrown over for another.

McCain said, he couldn't compete with tingles up Matthews

leg, and being a Maverick was the best he could do, because

being a Messiah was above his paygrade.

But, tho I really don’t care for him or his humor, Barry’s line about “Hussein was a middle name given to me by someone who didn’t think I’d be running for President” was delicious. Of course, it’s humor based on reality....

McCain had my kids and I cracking up, but I will admit that we chuckled a bit at Obama also. Gotta admit he had a couple of pretty good lines. I think they seemed less funny because McCain just plain rocked. And it was hilarious the way McCain ended talking about Obama was going to be the funniest 15 minutes ever, and if he didn’t pull it off he might lose a couple of swing states.

He said if he pulls this off it will be a long night at MSNBC, that Olberman already had a sign printed that said mission accomplished, and they would have to hang it in the padded room they had ready for him. He said if Olberman needed any designing tips on the sign, McCain would be more than happy to tell him where to put it...
