Ever heard of the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner? Me either. You know about it now, though.
Why? Well, it's an annual event (these are links to the 63rd, from earlier this week), and both candidates were invited to speak.
Oh, by the way, it's a roast.
Are they funny?

Obama is a better speaker, I think. He definitely gets the timing down. McCain may not quite be in his element, but I'll tell you what, he is absolutely funny.
It's a shame we don't get to see them like this more often.
