McCain Roasting Obama, Part I

McCain Roasting Obama, Part II

THERE IS NO MEDICINE LIKE HUMOR to nurse the wounds sustained during a hard-fought campaign. Last night Sen. John McCain rose to the occasion once again in showing his flair for comedy at the 63rd Annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner in New York City. Although, no doubt, this lampooning charity event speech was written by an able speechwriter, McCain's keen delivery of these non-stop zingers are zesty and full of bite.

McCain pokes fun at himself and his opponent Barack Obama but not a few of his more memorable lines are reserved for Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, ACORN, MSNBC, Keith Olbermann, and Chris Matthews among others.

And in the end, most of all, McCain was gracious. His speech was balanced and flowed with a gracious and genuine rhythm, while the Obama speech was slightly stilted in places. Here are links to his speech:
Part 1
Part 2.
