And He's Funny, Too!

At the traditional Al Smith Dinner tonight, McCain and Obama got some good zings in on each other, but in a much funnier, much more respectful tone than the one we've grown used to. Obama, for example, closed with:

But I've said before, and I think it bears repeating, that there are very few of us who have served this country with the same honor and dedication and distinction as Senator McCain, and I'm honored to be sharing the stage with him tonight.

But before that, we had some hilarious moments like:
