Tonight both presidential candidates appeared at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York for the annual Alfred E. Smith dinner. John McCain and Barack Obama took turns roasting each other as well as various attendees.
No question that John McCain has better comedic timing. His jokes on average were funnier than Obama’s who liked to laugh at his own jokes. Both candidates took shots at themselves, the campaign’s accusations and each other.
McCain took a shot at MSNBC’s host of Countdown, Keith Olbermann while Obama swiped at Fox News.
I give the edge in the Last Presidential Comic Standing to John McCain. It’s all in good fun.
